Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

I’m not sure how many HfP readers are keen LEGO fans or Star Wars fans, but I thought I would drop this in – admittedly late in the day – in case you were interested.

Tesco Direct has being running a one-day promotion today on LEGO Star Wars, offering 1,000 Clubcard points for a £60 spend.

Apologies for posting this at 7pm but, as anyone who is on our Twitter feed will know, I have been out at (London) Southend Airport today.

Anyway, if you’re interested, the link is here.  You need to order TODAY, Monday.


How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 2023)

As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards.  Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!

In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.

You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:

    Boom… Done! Thank you !

  • Mark says:

    They should have saved this for Star Wars Day (May the Forth).

  • vindaloo says:

    Just a thought, and it’s probably not feasible, but I would find it useful to receive an e-mail when an extra post is added later in the day, without getting e-mailed all the posts every morning. I visit the site about 7.30am every day but that means I tend to miss posts like this one that often require immediate attention.

    • AndyS says:

      I’m on the daily email list but didn’t get this, just seen it now when logging in to read comments. Surely short-notice things like this should be emailed? Or are we expected to check the site every hour of the day ?

      • Anon says:

        Agreed its a discrace, you’re right to be outraged!

        We should demand a refund! ;-p

  • Singing Dwarf says:

    If there are to be more “special opportunities” to earn more points as Tesco promise, I wonder if the conversion rate to Avios is also likely to be ‘adjusted’
