We are delighted to tell you that Head for Points turns 10 this month!

Rob started Head for Points as a hobby way back in 2012 after his career in the City. Since then it has grown into a ‘proper’ business – we should hit 25 million page views this year – thanks to your loyalty, support and interest.

None of our success would have been possible without you, our readers, and we want to invite you to celebrate this huge milestone with us!

Head for Points summer party bar

We will be throwing one of our famous reader parties on Tuesday 21st June. We hope you can make it.

Save the date: Tuesday 21st June

The party will take place at the Renaissance St Pancras hotel from 6pm to roughly 9pm and there will be 500 tickets available.

The Renaissance St Pancras balcony

Tickets will be £10 and your first drink, food (canapes and cupcakes) and a potentially very valuable raffle ticket are all included. There will be a cash bar for additional drinks.

As anyone who attended our 2019 Summer Party will attest, the Renaissance is a great venue for a summer celebration. There is a balcony area if the weather is fine and a beautiful indoor space if it’s not.

We will be releasing tickets in the next week. Keep an eye on the site or your emails for full details of when the tickets go on sale.

This party has become a reality because of the support of our sponsor Barclaycard. As you have probably heard by now, Barclaycard launched two new Avios-earning credit cards this Spring. They will be providing cupcakes and canapés for everyone on the night – you won’t go hungry – so a big thank you to all the team over at Barclaycard.

We will also hold our customary raffle on the night, with a VERY impressive top prize. Details will be revealed when tickets go on sale!

Information on how you can get a ticket will be published very soon, and we still have lots more details to reveal, but please mark Tuesday 21st June in your diary now. See you there!

    • BJ says:

      Nope, you’re all wrong – it’s a Barclaycard that works … and a free drink for the rest of you to drown your sorrows 😉

    1 Million Avios or Virgin points.

  • Chas says:

    My guess is a pair of business class flights with Etihad. Can’t wait for the party – fingers crossed I can get a ticket.

  • Michael C says:

    2 x MAN fast-track vouchers!

    Will practise my “refresh screen” skills the night before!

    • lumma says:

      If I remember correctly, it was only really the second Xmas party that was difficult to get tickets for.

      That one was only 200 tickets, unlimited free booze and a 200/1 shot at winning a Qatar business class flight to anywhere in the world.

    Party of the year, and can’t make it, sadly. Have fun everyone….sorry to miss seeing some familiar faces… enjoy.

    • Cat says:

      Oh no – gutted! I was hoping to convince you to join me in the zig-a-zig-ah photo this time!

    • Lady London says:

      I won’t make it back in time unfortunately so will miss out too.

      • Reney says:

        Oh no, I was hoping to buy you and Polly and a few others a drink for all the help and data points over the last few years!

      • Polly says:

        Lady London, Cat, was going to ask you to have a drink for me, shame, but maybe at a Christmas party?
        Cat, take care doing that Harry Potter impersonation down the bannisters!
        Reney, sorry to miss you too.

        • Cat says:

          Fingers crossed for a Christmas party, then. Gutted to miss you both this time Lady London and Polly! I will undoubtedly have a drink for you, in your absence!

  • Mirp says:
