Sainsbury's giving shoppers up to 5 times more Nectar points on weekly shop



NECTAR card users can earn five times the normal rate when they buy fruit, veg, fish or meat at Sainsbury’s this month.

But from now until July 9, as long as you spend at least £1, you’ll get five points for every £1 spent on branded and own-brand items including fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and plant-based alternatives.
One point is generally worth 0.5p (meaning you’d need 200 points to get £1 off), but the promotion will boost its value to 2.50p.
Even better, there’s no cap on how many points you can earn as part of the deal.
All you need to do is swipe your Nectar card in-store or online, and your bonus points will then be added to your account within 48 hours.
How much are Nectar points worth and where can I spend and collect them?NECTAR points are a loyalty scheme where customers can collect points to spend with certain retailers.
You can collect them by shopping at Sainsbury’s, Argos, Asos, Debenhams online, Disney Store online, eBay, Expedia, Three mobile online.
You can find the full list of brands offering Nectar points and their current deals on the Nectar website.
You can spend your points at a number of retailers such as Argos, eBay, Eurostar, Go Ape, and Sainsbury’s.
Nectar cardholders collect one point for every £1 you spend – but it’s worth 0.5p when you spend it.
That means 500 points are worth £2.50.

The deal is available in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide, including the supermarket’s Superstores, Locals, petrol filling stations and for online grocery orders delivered between the promotional dates.
Just be aware you won’t get the extra points on frozen or canned goods, alcohol, tobacco, gift vouchers, gift cards, travel money, carrier bags, stamps or prescription medicines.
The easiest way to spend them is to get money off your weekly shop, but you can get more bang for your buck by exchanging your points for rewards at partner retailers.
For instance, you can currently get a £13.49 pizza at Pizza Hut for 1,000 Nectar points – the equivalent of £5 of points.

Every now and then, Sainsbury’s also runs a double up promotion where your points are worth twice as much when you spend them.
The loyalty scheme has not yet confirmed any events for this year, but they usually release details in advance.
So if you’ve got points stored up and you hear an event is coming, it could be worth holding on to them to get more for your money.
Ruth Cranston from Sainsbury’s said: “As our customers gear up for summer, we’re pleased to be able to offer a boost for Nectar cardholders across a broad range of items.
“We’re set to give away millions of points, enabling customers to earn more during their weekly shop.”

Last year, Nectar warned its customers about a double point scam that could steal your details.
It then came under fire in December after thousands of points were wiped from rail passengers’ accounts.
Here’s how many Nectar points you need for £10, how much 500 points are worth and where you can collect points.
