Long term readers will remember that, last year, we arranged an exclusive reader discount with ski holiday company SNO.
I’m pleased to say that SNO has agreed to offer Head for Points readers an exclusive 5% off discount code again this winter. Their website has some good half board hotel packages at the moment, including the Hotel San Giovanni (pictured) in Livigno, Italy, which currently comes with a free lift pass.
You can claim a 5% discount from the brochure price of all SNO holidays using the code SNOHFP. You can find all SNO hotel deals here – you need to book by telephone 020 7770 6888 to claim your 5% discount.
It’s back – earn 18,000 Avios with a subscription to The Economist
Here are the two options on offer if you are a UK resident:
Print only or digital only: £179 with 15,000 Avios (1.19p per Avios)
Print and digital: £215 with 18,000 Avios (1.19p per Avios)
Subscribing to The Economist could make sense just for the Avios bonus even if you have little intention of reading it in detail, although there are occasional opportunities to buy points for nearer 1p each.
There are even better deals when looking at other countries. A digital only subscription for someone with a Canadian address snags you 15,000 Avios at 0.78p per point (C$199 / £116). Pricing in the Eurozone is unfortunately poorer than in the UK, with 1.6p per Avios on digital-only subscriptions in Belgium, France and Germany.
As always, if you are self-employed you may be happy writing off the subscription cost as a business expense which would sharply reduce your price per Avios even further.
This offer runs until 31st January.
