Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Tuesday 18th May

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We are running this daily chat thread on Head for Points during the coronavirus outbreak.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  With the news flow being lighter, we are running fewer ‘Bits’ articles.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are at home, we want the HfP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as it keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HfP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

    Why is Nectar so bad? They just emailed me telling me how to earn loads of points. I went to Tesco recently (struggling for pine nuts #obvs) and without being able to scan my Clubcard offered me triple double points and “we really like you”. Plus Morrison’s – great plants and 10% off for NHS staff…

    Sainsbury’s have gone “backwards” I now have to “scan” before I start shipping; love regression… I remember the 200 points for bacon (time of the dinosaurs!)

    Given “Brie de Meaux” is only available at Aldi and Lidl (I know darrrhling; not even Waitrose/Tesco/Ocado sell that!) What has happened?!?

    Given “oop norrrrrth” we have “company shop” (for blue light workers) mostly great sometimes a bit rubbish (discount for excess stock); Humous 5p (from I can’t say where, but the lady who sells it doesn’t sell ORDINARY HUMMOUS; it’s beautiful hummous that makes you sexually irresistible!) and I’m currently worth around 300k Avios and Sainsbury’s routinely don’t give me “bonus points” (including when they’re out of stock of stuff) why bother?!?


    But Brie de Meaux… ❤️ Had beautiful homemade Lidl baguette sandwich today for lunch with that, salad, a bit of cheeky home made pesto, and some beautiful salami… It was like living in France again…

    Right, champers and bed…

    Gros bisous, faités des beaux rêves!

      I think you’ve had enough champers already; all that makes very little sense. Night though love.

      😂 I can hardly understand a word you just said.

    Well …how many times has Harry uttered ‘pluripotent’ in my absence? Is it safe to go back in The Blog?
