    Warning - Nectar no longer accepted in VUE cinemas!

    I went to Vue cinema last night and wanted to use my nectar points for a ticket like I always do - 1000 points = 1 ticket (7.50). I was told "you cant use the card here anymore - from today you need to apply for vouchers!"

    I was extremely annoyed as Nectar hadnt told me anything about this and also - checking the site - its effectively now 1500 points for a ticket! Thats a 50% hike!

    Thanks Nectar. Going back to clubcard now.

    I know it doesnt seem like much to some people but when you are a bit less well off you take advantage of these offers and effectively get a free night out. Sorry if it seems menial

    Spend your points at Vue Cinemas. 500 points = £2.50 off.

    You can now spend your Nectar points on money off vouchers for Vue Cinemas. Use them towards the ticket price of the film you would like to see - including Premiere, gala, 3D and other special screenings - towards your popcorn and refreshments - or both! The choice is yours.

    You can spend as little as 500 points. Simply enter the quantity of £2.50 vouchers you would like, each voucher is 500 points, and click get it now.

    Your vouchers will be with you within 7 days valid for 12 months - simply take them along to any Vue cinema, hand them over when you pay, top up with cash if you need to, then just sit back and enjoy your film!

    The operative word to the OP was YOUR, please refrain from answring someone else's question, when I meant where they get the majority of their points.

    Thanks Babbler, I wasn't aware of this and practically 100% of my Nectar points are used for the occasional trip to the cinema with the kids so I may well have just gone along if you hadn't posted here

    The amount of points needed has now increased also by the looks of it :x

    Yup - by 50%.

    To answer someones question I get points through offers and doing surveys etc. Hardly spend anything. Also got the O2 dongle here which was 3750 points.
