Today we are launching a new 72-hour competition in association with Amazon.
One lucky reader will win a £100 Amazon gift voucher which can be used across the UK site.
The competition is to promote Amazon’s new Amazon Business service. Head for Points has a lot of readers from the small business community – after all, when you own the company every pound you save on your travel costs is an extra pound in your pocket – and this new service should be of interest to them.
That said …. you don’t need to have your own company to enter.
What is Amazon Business?
Amazon Business – register here – wants to change the way companies buy supplies. For most small businesses, buying supplies can be time-consuming and frustrating. Finding the best product at the best price with the most convenient payment terms can be a challenge, especially when they have other tasks that need to be completed. Amazon Business is the solution and brings big benefits to businesses of all sizes and industries.
Amazon Business combines Amazon’s existing selection, convenience and value with additional business-specific features including:
- bulk pricing
- Pay by Invoice (subject to satisfactory credit checks and credit limit),
- downloadable VAT invoices
- spend management tools
Using the Amazon Business site, multiple sellers compete for your purchases on common items on the most favorable terms for customers. It’s like a “reverse auction” where customers save time, money and hassle in the process.
Other cool stuff includes:
Choice, value and convenience: Amazon Business simplifies the entire purchasing process for businesses by helping them find, compare and order exactly what they need with fast, reliable shipping and flexible payment options. It’s a shopping experience Amazon customers will instantly recognise and understand.
Helpful purchasing tools: Amazon Business gives users access to helpful purchasing controls that can ensure that only authorised purchases are made, together with tools to integrate with their existing purchasing system and provide detailed purchasing analytics.
Free accounts: Unlike warehouse clubs or subscription-based online retailers, Amazon Business accounts are free, even for companies with multiple authorised purchasers. Once registered, those with accounts are able to search hundreds of millions of products in the Amazon Business inventory, where multiple sellers can compete for their purchase.
You can register your company for a FREE Amazon Business account here.
There is one prize of a £100 Amazon gift voucher to be won.
The voucher is valid for 10 years and is valid for any purchase on the UK Amazon website.

How do we look after your data?
We use a company called Gleam to manage our competitions. By entering, you are submitting data to Gleam, acting as Data Processor, and not to Head for Points, acting as Data Controller.

Some competitions may give you additional chances to win if you follow a company on social media or agree to join their mailing list. These choices are always optional and do not impact your ability to enter the competition.
Your data will be erased from Gleam shortly after the winners have been verified. You can receive a copy of your Gleam data (which will be nothing once the winners have been verified) by emailing anika at headforpoints.co.uk via the email address used on your entries.
