Head for Points has been picking up some traffic from Mumsnet today which is not a normal source of new readers.  I clicked through to the linked page and found this in the forum:

“Looking for a missing pair of trousers in DH’s [Dear Husbands] wardrobe this morning, I came across a policy doc and “thank you for buying tesco pet insurance” letter.  Says it’s for “Smiles”, doesn’t specify the type of animal, dated January this year, £80ish for the year.

We do not have a pet.

I will, of course, ask him when he gets home, but any ideas WTF might be going on v welcome…”

4000 Clubcard points with Tesco pet insurance

Read the very large number of responses here!

The answer is almost certainly in this HFP article here!

There was potentially a clue for the wife in the name of the cat, Smiles.

    I like how some of the posters on mumsnet are concerned when the original poster has not updated them on the progress of the investigation for OVER AN HOUR!! and also those that add a pointless comment to the thread just so they can be notified of any updates (what they call “place marking”). sometimes their post just says “place marking”.

    Oh To be a fly on the wall when the hubby gets home tonight. I wonder if she will update the post with the real reason or start a debate if he is having an affair?

  3. Fantastic. That reminds me why collecting airmiles is worthwhile: so many people just dismiss it as a waste of time (as in that thread) that those of us who can be bothered to learn the system reap the rewards.

    I’m just glad that the wife didn’t find his stash of 3v cards or his mountain of tiny cabbages! I’d love to see what the guesses would be to explain that.

  4. Hahahaha mumsnet link brilliant. For a while now my wife has also told me to stop boring her about points/miles etc.
