Great, shame my store just lost most of its electricals after moving an Argos inside. It's also annoying that the Argos is now out of town in the Sainsbury's rather than 10min walk away.

I was hoping they would include Argos in the promo.

double up erm its okay, doesn't get me excited.
I'm waiting for the ebay 10X points.

What's wrong with returning goods within the 30 days of purchase you have the right to do this as a consumer. Do u think the cashier at Sainsbury's could care less that you are returning some stuff?
Return purchases separately for separate store cards so cashier is none the wiser if it makes u feel better

Double up and spend on ANYTHING! Step 1: double up on all the categories …Double up and spend on ANYTHING! Step 1: double up on all the categories you can afford with your points. Step 2: buy max amount on something random from these categories.Step 3: take it back for a refund. (They refund the doubled up amount onto a store card) Step 4: spend your doubled up balance on whatever you want. Cha-ching! Did this last year and turned £50 nectar points into a £100 sainsburys store card which I then spent on food 😜


Have done this on previous promotions (mostly for genuine reasons) and depending on the member of staff they might try to give you an exchange/refund for the base price and not the double up value...when that did happen I just said hmm ok I will think about it and chanced my arm another day on a more amicable staff member...so might not be plain sailing for everyone!

Thanks Chanchi. Just what I’ve been waiting for. Put a reminder on my phone. Will put mine towards Need for Speed Payback which is released on the 10th

nectar points where halved in 2015 buy sainsbury's! theguardian.com/mon…out its good to see them repaying there loyal customers a few weeks every year something for nothing?

When I done this last year I got a thank you message with 2000 bonus points attached. Hope they have some deals in entertainment /games.

Im still waiting for mine which was about end of august im waiting for and urgent email from them for about a week now i spent over £260!!!!

At last we've got about £100 saved up, I'll be using them all as I strongly doubt there will be another one

I will have £50 worth of points by then which will obv give me £100 in double up event but it seems like they are capping it at 4000points so £20 max in one category. Is this correct and will i be able to go into store and get a second voucher on a different day or? Thanks.

I tried doing this just once. Queue for ages to get to the customer services and the be told you have to get separate vouchers limited to £20/30 for each department. No booze allowed. Ranges and departments limited. I didn’t bother in the end.

Add the fact that Sainsbury’s is so expensive now I never shop there.

Double up?

Wine it is then

Thanks Chanchi. Ive just applied for the nectar credit card that pays out 30,000 points. but i dont think I'd get those points in time for this promotion. which would mean getting a PS4 Pro for free. But heat as it would would many people

Last year it was capped at a transaction level, not at card level.

I got a 20 wine voucher from one Sainsbury's, nipped to another store and repeated the process!

Yeahhh!!!

Thanks for this, for £60 to double up from the bonus points promotion.

Sainsburys have listened and have made the rules simpler this year.
To redeem these are the rules:

Depends when you hit the 2k and when you points are transferred over. I had my bonus points about a week after I hit the target.

They can't do this you are entitled to a refund as per their normal t&cs (see large post above item 20 I think) and as they can't refund your nectar points they HAVE to give u store credit to the value of the refund.

I love this promotion! We save our points all year and got some extra points with the promotion a couple of weeks ago and will go daily to get my son 4/5 games for his birthday and christmas. Last year I had a lovely lady who let me do it twice but normally only one transaction per category. If you go daily, hopefully you'll get someone different. Then whatevers left goes towards christmas food shopping.

Well that's the Christmas dvd haul paid for then

You can only double up a maximum of 4000 points on each department so wouldn’t get a free PS4 with any amount of points!

We change each year normally for XBox games. You can just go to a different store even on the same day and get another voucher. My problem is what games to buy. Will ask the kids what ones they are interested in but the question is always which ones are going to get the big discounts by Game etc on Black Friday. Don't want to waste the double up if the game is going to be half price a week later anyway.

No idea this year what games are out.

Thanks Chanchi

32275152-qeVsh.jpg

I didn't know nectar did double up events! Good to know, thankyou

I won 5000 points in the swipe and win so that's boosted my points this year to 15000! Looking forward to stocking up on alcohol and presents for Christmas!

1 game
2 toys for the niece
Some stuff for the new house!
Not bad for points I make on a company fuel card!

Maybe if you had even the most cursory glance at the T&Cs you would have realised this was the case.

Although it's £40 maximum per department.

And even though it does say this, I find the system doesn't "know" so getting the other half to go up, or get a different customer service assistant will give you more vouchers...

edit: 44,696 points for me so looking forward to a spending splurge to help with the house move!
