About Head for Points

We help business and leisure travellers maximise their Avios, frequent flyer miles and hotel loyalty points. Visit every day for three new articles or sign up for our FREE emails via this page or the box to your right.


  1. Mr(s) Entitled says:

    Will Tesco Pay+ work in conjunction with points earned on the underlying card, in my case Tesco Premium CC? I can’t see it in the FAQ and I dont want to lose a higher earn and money towards £5000 annual spend.

    The offer has been going for a while so I assume someone has a real world experience to share.

    • Yes it works. We had the Premium CC till last Oct then switched to the Tesco Debit Card. So you get a CC pt per £1, 1 CC per £1 for Credit Card spend and 1 CC for every £4 using the app. You need to change your Clubcard number on your account to the one on the back of the credit card if it’s not the same.

  2. Another offer ending soon is bonus Avios for each different way of collecting used before the 10th of Feb. I had an email in December about this, though presumably it’s targeted as I haven’t seen it mentioned here?

    • No-one has even forwarded it to me, must be very targeted.

      • My hubby had a similar offer from Avios back in Sept for 250 Avios for using different partners. Had to chase up some of the bonus pts in November. That was obviously targeted as our 2 other accounts didn’t get it. Also had an offer from AerClub for 500 Avios for Shopping online between 30/11 and 7/1 – waiting on pts to post by 23/2. Again targetted to hubby’s account only.

  3. Are there any long haul aircraft operating between London and Zurich? I am interested in trying out Business Class but I only see A320. There’s one flight which is an A321 though. Is worth reviewing their Business Class?

    • A321 is also short-haul.

      Off the top of my head, intra-EU routes from London with long-haul flat-bed planes are Istanbul (on Turkish, 777), Madrid (BA and Iberia), Helsinki (Finnair) and even then not on all flights.

      • Thanks for that Rob! I am contemplating o taking Turkish to Istanbul when I go on holiday, will probably give Business a try and probably fly back economy. LATAM’s Frankfurt – Madrid route looks gorgeous too!

      • Prins Polo says:

        I thought Turkish to IST (777) is similar to US style business, mid-haul style, but not fully flat?

  4. As an FYI, Tesco to virgin conversion are running their promotion of 20% extra miles. My auto convert miles posted on 2nd Feb, and the bonus the following day.

  5. The lego deal-I only see 1000 points bonus added, not the 500 even though all items are part of the deal?

    • The bonuses are not cumulative.
      i.e. If you go above £60 total then you get 1000 bonus (max bonus per order), you don’t get the 500 for going above £30 as well.
