Earn Free Nectar Points + Low/Medium/High Nectar Points Opportunities (See OP)

35
Found 17th Oct
It's been a little while since I have properly looked at Nectar points earning. As a reminder 1 point is worth 0.5p or 1p redeeming in a double up at Sainsbury's (expecting the double up to be sometime in November but nothing officially confirmed).

If you were looking for a few ways to earn some more Nectar points, below are some points earning opportunities, ranging from free, low/medium/high opportunities. Just be aware that some of the higher points opportunities will take a while to credit.


Free Nectar point opportunities








Low/Medium Nectar point opporunities

  • Can earn Nectar points on Travel Money, currently there is a flash sale until Thursday 9:30am on improved rates and get a better rate with a Nectar card
  • sainsburysbank.co.uk/tra…kip

  • If you are a Nectar cardholder you should have received some Sainsbury's money off coupons in the post. As well as money off it also gave bonus point vouchers on spend. In addition you get bonus points coupons from the till when you shop instore.

  • Check the Nectar app/site every Thursday when they have new offers and load onto your card. Offers are targeted but here's a few that I have in the app currently

a) 100 bonus points when you complete 4 swipes at Sainsbury's instore/online or fuel
b) Triple points on your first shop at Sainsbury's Local
c) 3 x points on eBay
d) 5,000 bonus points each time you buy new Home or Car Insurance direct from Sainsbury’s Bank (need to check the premiums to see how competitive they are)
e) 5,000 bonus points when you buy Pet insurance from Sainsbury’s Bank
f) 500 bonus points when you fill up and swipe at BP

High Nectar point opportunities

  • 30,000 Nectar points when you take out the Amex Nectar card and spend £2k in the first 3 months. Would never advocate spending to hit a signup bonus however if you were spending anyway e.g holiday purchase, christmas spend then definitely worth a look.
  • nectar.com/ame…fer


2813831.jpg
  • Up to 10,000 Nectar points with Nectar Purchase credit card 0% for 32 months (new customers). Firstly I would say this is a decent offer without the nectar points e.g. market leading purchase offer. The points offer has a few restrictions e.g. Earn 1,000 bonus points each time you spend £35 in Sainsbury's, but if you shop at SaInsbury's anyway is a decent offer.
  • sainsburysbank.co.uk/cre…kip

  • Sainsbury's Life Insurance/Over 50's Life insurance14,000 Nectar points which should be credited after month 5 of payments according to the terms. Min monthly payment is £5 per month, so possible to spend £25 over 5 months and get the 14,000 bonus points and then cancel.

Very well constructed deal Chanchi. Heat added.

Once I've checked out what points I've got left in the account I'm cancelling mine because of their Daily Hate partnership.

Everybody loves a bit of data harvesting

I never get any post from nectar these days!
With double up coming next month this is a useful post. It wouldnt suprise me if they make it the final double up though given April’s was cancelled

Just a cautionary note though - some of the bonus points will unlikely be credited to your account in time for the potential November double up. There's no way the credit card bonus of 30,000 points will be credited before November given the qualifying period is 3 months. I have the same dilemma given that I signed up for the other credit deal (1,000 points on a 35.00 spend), but the T&Cs state that the bonus points will be added at the end of 2 months.

Great post though - just wanted to make people aware that some of the bigger point earners might not hit your account in enough time for November.

Yeah, you sure showed them!

"Guys, Jewelie on HotUKDeals is cancelling her Nectar app, sorry to say but I think we're going to have to go into administration."

Is just a reflection of your comment.

Seriously, if you believe in all that tosh then whatever. Someone somewhere in every company has views like that and supports companies like that.

Nectar double up is from 12th November 2017 and you can exchange your points for coupons from 5th November 2017.

Avoid Nectar Canvass like the plague. Most survey sites are a bit dodgy, but this lot do their best to avoid paying out.

Great for idiots who like sales and marketing calls and emails. My time is also worth more than 50p of nectar points. Don't waste your precious, finite lives on this.

I never get marketing calls and the emails that they do send are normally helpful. Yeah...I'm an idiot and it took an idiot to tell me that!

Where are you seeing this?

I get Nectar points for booking train tickets through GWR, plus you can get your tickets sent first class mail for no extra cost

anyone had any luck with the browser extension? I seen the reviews on the page for it and all were bad so I didn't bother installing it. People were mentioning that the 200 points per month is misleading.

Good luck anyone doing Nectar Canvass. I've done several and it always bombed out a very long way through with a 'sorry you're not eligible for this survey' message. This was way past the demographic checks and very suspiciously like they were gathering survey info and cheating me out of the reward. I stopped prq when I realised it was a consistent pattern. Would be interesting to hear if others experienced the same.

That's not factually correct. 1 point is NOT 0.5p, In fact 1000 points are only £1.00, so a point is only 0.005p, or in other words virtually nothing at all.
As Sainsburys are expensive to start with, and Amex in particular isnt accepted in many places, its far, far more cost effective to shop elsewhere. There are better creditcard deals around.

As for the surveys your getting paid 120 points for 20 minutes work, so thats 6 pence (6p) or 18p an hour.. I value my time far more than that..

Not knocking the efforts of the poster, but Nectar points are poor value compared to just shopping elsewhere. The exception is perhaps the points on fuel, but they can be more expensive that others in that as well.

- 1000 points has a base redemption value of £5 and £10 in a double up. Image from 2016 double up last year. Check the Nectar site for points redemption.

- You dont have to shop at Sainsbury's to earn Nectar points e.g the life insurance offer has no reliance of shopping in Sainsbury's. Amex acceptance is better than it used to be and is accepted in most places where people spend, albeit a lot of smaller merchants dont accept because of the merchant fees.

Not sure where you get 1000 is only £1.00 as according to my receipt 1000 points has a value of £5.00 in store. Yes, the produce can be overpriced but I also find this is true of all supermarkets hence why I look round for the best deals.

Don't bother with the nectar canvas. The amount of times I've spend 15+mins on a questionnaire only you be then told you don't qualify and they give you 2 points as a 'thank you!' AVOID

Anyone done the soup of the day offer?
Can this be done in store or is it only online?

You seem to be confused because you say on one line that 1000 points are £1.00 and on the next line that a point is 0.005p which means 1000 points is £5.00. You're contradicting yourself.

Thanks! How does Soup of the Day offer work. Is it one time only points or for every soup you buy ?
