This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

If anyone has a decent number of Nectar points, you can cash these in to effectively get Pokemon Sword/Shield 'half price' from Sainsburys.

The game is £44.99, but downloading the Nectar app and converting points into a voucher where they are worth double (in £10 multiples), the game is brought down to an effective value of £22.50.

Worth noting that CEX currently offer £40 cash if you trade in the game.

So my understanding is spending £1 gets you 1 point and each point is, at standard rate, worth 0.5p meaning if my math is right you'd have to spend £4500 to have enough nectar points to fully cover this.

Given that context I'd say it's phenomenally disingenuous to describe this as "effectively £22.50" given that it's reliant on frontloaded spending equivalent to a Vauxhall Astra.

There are many other ways to get Nectar Points. For example spend £5 for 500pts.

in multiples of £10.

So £40 voucher = £20 worth of Points plus £4.99 cash so effective price £24.99?
Okay, I'm being thick here (blame my age!)

I have £25 in Nectar Points. I can convert £20 into £40 thus paying £4.99 for the Pokémon?

As @Speculator says, there are lots of ways to get points. I had £30 and I am only one person using standard places that give Nectar points.

I take the point that you need to have the points, but given that there was a lot of chatter on here about there not being anything to spend nectar points during the 'double up' promo, hopefully this will help someon!

I mean if you can find a way to get 4500 points that doesn't require massive amounts of forced spending more power to you. Throw a guide up and I'll absolutely vote hot but this doesn't seem like it was worth a post to me. Imagine people posting every single thing you can buy at Sainsbury's claiming it's half price because of the same Nectar promotion.

Exactly right yes


Thank you.

(I collect points just on eBay purchases btw)

Just like it’s very disingenuous to infer people
A) Would buy an Astra
B) Get one for £4,500

It’s not a great deal but I did simile this morning to only stump up £30 cash for some joy cons.
Just back from S/burys had £61 50on card doubled up £50 to £100 bought mario &sonic £40 Luigis mansion £45 head set at £25 total cost£110 now have 50p left result
Just bought this and sheild for £90 using double up and traded in for cash at CEX for £80 best value trade in currently compared to other games currently like COD NFS Heat etc

I went last night and used £20 of points to get a £40 voucher. When I paid for the game they gave me a £4.50 Off next £30 spend so I cashed in another £20 to get another £40 voucher and used the £4.50 too.
When you double up your points are they valid for a certain amount of time or do they have to be used there and then?
Edited by: "Page50" 15th Nov
It's a shame this deal is so cold.
I realise if you don't have Nectar points, it's a bit erm... pointless, but for us who do, and rarely use them, it's a rather nice way to get this game cheap.

Using my points, I got it for £14.99, so well chuffed.

They are valid until the 19th Nov. Unlike past years you can spend across the departments included in the deal.

Did exactly the same. £80 cash for £45 of points and then a £10 CD (that I was buying anyway) for £5 of points to make up my £100 voucher.

2p change and will use the £80 elsewhere to buy something I actually want at hopefully a cheaper price.

The nectar app is pretty good - I get offers for stuff I generally buy in Sainsbury’s anyway. The offers I get would equate to 500+ points this week if I bought everything in the list - for example 40 points each for milk, carrots, eggs and butter, 50 points for oranges, 80 points for apples. Then there are triple points offers and extra points also given through the print out vouchers. Soon adds up
Why is this expired? I've just used my points to double up and got this cheaper

I didn't expire it, mods probably did it because of how cold it got
Did this today, only cost 99p after doubling up £20 worth of Nectar and had a handy £4 off voucher. You can only double up multiples of £10 however.

Unfairly cold I might add. To people who have nectar points this is ideal!!
