Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Possible 18,750 Avios for £53 via the Daily Mail

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

The Daily Mail has been emailing selected members of its MyMail website with a generous subscription offer.

You will receive 30,000 Nectar points (worth 18,750 Avios) when you subscribe to ‘The Ultimate Pack’ of the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday for just two months.

If you are not a fan of the Mail, don’t worry. You do not receive physical newspapers. You receive a book of vouchers in the post which can be redeemed daily at your local newsagent – or binned if you prefer.

The price is £26.80 per month, so £53.60 in total. The Nectar points will arrive within “25 days of renewing the second month subscription“.

This is, clearly, a very good deal at £53.60 for 18,750 Avios. The only reason I am not pushing it harder is that the offer is not openly showing on the MyMail website. You need this link from the email.

On the other hand, the T&Cs in the email do not say that it is only open to the recipient:

“Offer available to new subscribers taking out a subscription between 12.02.21 and 28.02.21. UK residents aged 18+. To collect £150 worth of Nectar points, buy a subscription to The Ultimate Pack, paying for a minimum of two consecutive months, price £26.80 pcm. £150 worth of Nectar points will be credited per person, per one subscription only, within 25 days of renewing the second month subscription. Subscription will auto renew after the expiry of the first calendar month at a cost of £26.80.”

(EDIT: To add to the confusion, it seems that the confirmation page you see is an old one and shows a different set of terms which mention a three month minimum. Caveat emptor.)

You should create a MyMail account and link it to your Nectar account before signing up.

For absolutely clarity, do not sign-up for this unless you are prepared to accept some risk that you will not receive the points because you did not receive the original email.

As a no-risk alternative, you may want to register with MyMail, link your account to your Nectar account, and wait to see if you are targetted for a similar offer in the future.

  • Ben says:

    Get ready Rob, going to be a load of people oddly keen to let everyone know they wouldn’t touch the Daily Mail.

    • John says:

      But if you hate what the DM stands for this is an opportunity to make them lose money

      • Number9 says:

        That’s wishful thinking on your part, they won’t lose money it’s the Mail not the Guardian.

        • Jayne says:

          Let’s see how much they lose in compo for Megan then eh, Debs?

          • Number9 says:

            I should think the hundreds of articles they post every single day on that woman and the amount of clicks/comments they all get to fuel their ad revenue will just about cover the compo costs to the one who wishes to remain private and needs to thrive not just survive. 🙄

      • Frenske says:

        Unfortunately increased readership numbers means they can ask more the ads. I receive free local magazines that have less ads than the paid-for DM.

    • mradey says:

      Yup, let the virtue-signalling begin….

      • Jayne says:

        Weird, seems the virtue signalling that started first are the triggered defenders 🤔🤣🤣

    • Ryan Gill says:

      I thought the same, lots of reciprocal virtue signalling to be expected. I do dislike ideologues.

    • Kipto says:

      Spot on Ben

  • Dan says:

    I feel oddly propelled to affirm my disgust at the thought of buying the mail

    • Number9 says:

      I wonder how many will be “disgusted” then sign up for nice chunk of points on the quite.
      Some of the ways to collect points people discuss on here are sometimes questionable wether they are legal, I doubt a little thing like their aversion to the Daily Mail will get in the way of getting points.

      • David says:

        Number9 – how many of the disguessed then sign up, it will be a lot less than you would think I expect.

        To answer your second point, while personally I also draw my lines before fraud, I’ve certainly taken advantage of many offers that were not quire working the way that – with reasonable mind – the company provided them might have expected them to do.

        Some do take issue at that.

        But, perhaps I could ask you which you consider the worst:
        – Burglary (in a country where this is illegal)
        – Sitting as the administrative secretary at concentration camp that gasses people. Or even just the cook, or repairing the fences.(In a country where this is legally permitted at the time.)

        There are some people who think the first is worst. That is how their mind works.

        For many of us, this is about complicity (and very separately about positive and negative effects on society – I agree burglary is a negative effect on society.).

    • Chris says:

      Congratulations Dan, your virtue has been signalled.

      • David says:

        Congratulations Chris – the disregard you have for civilized society, and clear contempt for people speaking up has been demonstrated.

        • Jayne says:


        • Chris says:

          David, thank you for also signalling your virtue, and, indeed, a truly bizarre set of comments about concentration camps.

          • Jayne says:

            You may say ‘bizarre’, Chris, but that just shows your lack of understanding… which, sadly, is much of what it required to be a DM disciple.

  • James says:

    I’ve gone for it.
    Didn’t have the offer but as you say Yes & C’s don’t state you must have received the invite personally.
    Took screenshots along the way.
    Fingers crossed.
    I’m sure one of my elderly parents friends still read the mail so will see if they’ll give me £20 for the vouchers
    You never know, the online subscription may come in handy at some point
    Must remember to cancel !!!
    Will let you know if I get the points !

    • Sal says:

      You will charge your own parents!???

    • Ryan Gill says:

      Read it a bit. Compare it to your usual sources. There will be some relevance and truth in all of it. Don’t subscribe to one or few perspectives.

  • Andrew says:

    It’s a shame my grandmother isn’t still alive – she would have been very grateful me sending her two months of vouchers.

  • Mike says:

    I like the Daily Mail I find it good value at 70 p now the Daily telegraph has gone up to £2.50 so I only do the sat and sun Daily Telegraph – good quizzes too

  • Andrew says:

    You could always help out a local newsagent business by giving them the vouchers rather than binning them and they can claim the money from DM.

  • BJ says:

    Come on kids, calm yourselves! This is just a loyalty game, remain dispassionate and bag the points.

    • TGLoyalty says:

      Exactly think of the positives be safe in the knowledge that you’ve bagged a load of nectar worth twice what you’ve paid.

      And you’ll have a reason to walk to the newsagent everyday to get your mymail code.

      • David says:

        And that you haven’t helped support and perpetuate a cause of division and anger in our society. Oh hang on…

        • Ryan Gill says:

          I might find much in the Guardian offensive and the fact that people who challenge some “progressive” ideas are labelled “nasty”, doesn’t say much for the idea that all opinions should be considered, even if to moderate those we disagree with.

          • David says:

            I also find much in the guardian disagreeable, and in the times. And in the FT.

            But that’s not what we are talking about here. It’s not views you disagree with.

            But rather the deliberate creation of hatred and division.

          • John says:

            The fewer the facts the steonger the opinion.

  • Pb says:

    I find our friendly newsagent will often accept a voucher for its value and happily sell you whichever newspaper you like .
