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 serviceHead 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.

Amazon Business benefits

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.

    Silly question time:

    For the Amazon business account, do they credit check you or your business, and in any event, do they run a hard credit search or a soft one?

    I ask because I don’t plan to apply for any credit for the business any time soon, but if someone runs a hard search on me personally (other than a credit card company) I wouldn’t like that very much :-/

    • Rob says:

      Not sure. I imagine that paying on credit (and so getting a check) is an opt-in service but cannot guarantee that.

      • vol says:

        Thanks Rob – I applied anyway and the business has been approved a credit line – my credit files do not appear to have been hit with any type of search (hard or soft), so I assume it’s the business that gets the credit scoring done against it.

  • Richard E says:

    On holiday in Cyprus and competition says it’s not available to enter here ????

    • Rob says:

      Let me tell you what happens if we open it up. Someone sticks a link on Baidu and we get 100,000 Chinese trying to enter to win the equivalent of a few weeks salary, which brings down the site for 3 days ….

      • Dan says:

        Slightly annoying that we get comments like this on every competition hfp run. Just get yourself a vpn app from the app store (or equivalent) and use that to enter. Problem solved!

        • Andrew says:

          Or just accept that you might have to let this one pass you by. Nice, and appreciated, though the prize is it’s hardly life changing and probably not worth the effort of finding and installing a safe vpn app.

        • Shoestring says:

          Spotflux Premium VPN and AnchorFree HotSpot Shield Elite are free & meant to be safe.

          Probably better to pay something if you’re going to use it much, see – the best one is usually seen as ExpressVPN.

          I tried Tunnelbear a few months ago & found it annoying to use, but it IS free & safe – though free data so limited (500 MB/ month) to render it useless for watching TV etc.

          I’m going to try out Windscribe in a couple of weeks – also free, highly rated and 10 GB.

        • Peter K says:

          Hi Rob. I’ve never had a problem entering any of the competitions, I even won one a few years ago. What am I doing wrong?

    • John says:

      Try using mobile data from a UK phone (should cost the same in Cyprus).

      I tried to geolocate my IP address from Hong Kong while using my UK phone, and it said I was in the UK.

  • Nate says:


    Due to reapply for BA premium plus card in next few days (it had been 6 months since closure). I currently have Amex gold credit card and wife has BA basic card. Which one should I refer myself from thereby maximising reward points/avios? Can I refer myself from my gold card?

    Thanks in advance

    • JohnT says:

      From comments this week they closed the loophole to cross refer so could be OH’s Ba.

    • Genghis says:

      X-refs back

      • Nate says:

        Oh really? Well I guess I would either get 9k MR points (referring from gold) or 9k avios (referring from BA card). Although MR are better as gives more flexibility probably not worth the risk in case it doesn’t work? I guess if I had a platinum card it would be a different story with double the number of MR referral points!

      • Anna says:

        Yes I’ve done a referral from MR Platinum to BAPP this morning. Also downgraded another BAPP to the free card – had to do this over the phone though, has this always been the case?

        • Tom1 says:

          I downgraded online a few months ago just by applying for the free card and entering my BAPP card number when it asked if I have any other amex card. I also got the 5k bonus points for the free card!

    • Anon says:

      You only get welcome bonuses one though right?

      • Mark2 says:

        once every six months from cancellation

        • Peter K says:

          Cancel, get the date in the cancellation letter sent to you. Apply again 6 months +1 day after that date and get the bonus again.

  • JohnT says:

    Just in time to enter from Gatwick’s BA lounge before flying to Oakland. Phew. Very quiet lounge but great views over the apron. For info trying Gatwick’s Car and Away Parking so will see how that goes.

  • Alex W says:

    OT. IHG pointbreaks are out. We are off on a 3 week round the world trip in Oct/Nov, not a single pointbreak where we are going!!

  • Shoestring says:

    O/T £2.50 back on any £2.50 spend @Spudco tonight, would combine with the £5 off £20 Domino’s offer on Amex.

  • Shoestring says:

    O/T people are checking in for the IB 90K flights (that they don’t intend to fly) – in the hope that plane goes tech & they can get EUR 250 compo – some successes

    • Rob says:

      I have a BA flight on a 787 next month which I will be cancelling but to save £70 I am waiting until it gets moved to Air Belgium or whoever and then calling!

  • Imbruce says:

    As I own a small business I always try and support& purchase from other small business wherever I can, as supporting a small business keeps the money flowing through local small businesses in your area, small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities particularly when they employ local people.
    If you own a small business and want to help to grow it,then let me know.
