Echo Dot £35 in Sainsbury's but with nectar double up

33
Found 16th Nov
So I know this is £34-35 just about everywhere, but noticed this also includes Sainsbury's so can combine with the nectar double up voucher for a real bargain.

I've had a nectar card for about 4 years and have collected a grand total of 30 points

People constantly moan about Nectar points. Sainsbury's don't have to give you anything, it is essentially FREE money. There are plenty of ways to earn them, there are regular promotions and at the end of the day even if you only have a fiver back after 6 months then that's 5 quid you did nothing but buy your regular food/fuel for.

Quit moaning.

What's the nectar double up voucher?

Your Nectar points are worth double the normal value.

Your Nectar points are worth double the normal value.

Cheers just did some googling....All explained here:

google.co.uk/amp…amp

So looks like the best option is to exchange 3000 points to get £30

Or can you do 3500 points and that should pay for the Echo dot outright?

Does that mean you have to spend £3,500 to get a free Dot?

That article says 0.5p per point, and 1 point for every pound spent. So you get 35 points, times 0.5p=17.5p. Doubled equals 35p's worth of Nectar points, by buying it from Sainsburys.
Am I missing something or is that the deal?

No

. The deal is you use £15 worth of nectar points to buy a £30 voucher, then add a fiver cash to get the echo.

So you could argue you've paid £20 for the echo. Personally I consider nectar points have not value, so I like to think I paid £5 for my echo.

You can only exchange for a £10, £20, £30 or £40 voucher. So slightly limited.

Do Sainsbury’s sell the Echo Dot? I can’t find it on there website (I realise they may sell it in store only, but just wanted to make sure before I trek over there).

Also thanks to whoever added the picture but I think Sainsbury's only have the black model

Do Sainsburys sell Google home mini, did not find anything online and rang my local store and the person didn't know what it was. Please can anyone confirm. Thanks

I think it depends on size. Only 1 out of 3 of my nearby large stores have them

I get quite a few through my eBay addiction but it is the worst points scheme going.

Better than nothing though.

Yes, they do sell google home mini and I did the same, exchanged electrical voucher to the value of £30 (£15 worth of points) and paid £5 cash. This was Sainsbury’s in Plymouth marshmills

Ah, more useless tat that will sit on our desks and coffee tables and never get used.

I've my nectar card a year and have 100k points, got a huge amount of them as bonus points. It's not too bad.

Just bought 3 Echos on the Amazon deal, I really shouldn't need any more but considering for kitchen!

Very unlikely to find an echo in a sainsbury with an Argos attached

I looked in my local Sainsbury but it too has an Argos and recently downsized most of it Electronic stuff. I don't recall seeing them. If there were any echo Dot left I am betting they sold out quickly. The Argos had no stock when I asked there.

I've had a KFC card and collected no points. Because I don't eat KFC.

Just rechecked my local and definately no Amazon hardware in store. All my big Sainsburys near me now have an Argos. Problem is the store would need to have no Argos and be big enough to have a tech section. Not even sure the echo is listed as on the promotion.

Can't live without an Echo in the kitchen lol

I was told by central customer services that even though my store might have them, the Echo Dots are a Black Friday deal and they’re not allowed to sell them yet?

Quit telling me what I can and can't do...

Relevant to Nectar Double up but not to the Echo Dot: My favourite Nectar Double Up purchase has been the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar. £20 Reduced to Clear In-Store, I paid £10 Nectar Points in the Toy Department. Initially they said Seasonal Advent Calendars weren’t included and didn’t give me the voucher but I checked with Online Customer Service and they said Lego Advent Calendars were included. I don’t have time to start a thread about it but if anyone wants to, it’s a bargain 😁

Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch!

We're not a fan of Sainsbury's 'Double Up' scheme purely because they cap the maximum you can exchange vouchers for at the equivalent of £40, and this can only be done once per category, where as Tesco don't appear to be so restrictive.

We currently have £650 in points, but never find anything worth spending on.

Obviously a bit late now but in reality you can get more than one voucher if you go on a different day/to different store/to different assistant. I got multiple entertainment vouchers and purchased a game then traded it in for cash at CeX. £20 of points became £35 cash. Other people posting in the double up thread were purchasing the game and then returning to Sainsbury’s for £40 gift card. I agree the limit makes it somewhat restrictive.
