A Nectar card can be used to collect points at Sainsbury’s, Esso, Asos as well as places like eBay. The amount of points customers collect varies, but supermarket giant Sainsbury’s typically offers one point for every £1 spent. In its latest deal, customers can receive free points when connecting their payment card.
There are also bigger offers available including 1,400 points for signing up to Simply Cook and spending at least £9.99.
What’s available on offer will vary as the offers will be based personalised and based on shopping habits.
Once an offer is activated, customers can immediately earn points.
Although the full list of retailers taking part hasn’t been published, Nectar has said hundreds of outlets are included.
Retailers include FatFace, Coach, Kate Spade, Matalan and Pets at Home.
Quick, Five Guys, Harvey Nichols and Hawes & Curtis are other outlets where customers can earn points.
For those who haven’t signed up for a card yet, the app can be downloaded via the App Store or Google Play.
It is important to note that by connecting a debit or credit card means that Nectar holds sensitive information including bank account details and transactions.
Although they only have ‘read-only’ access, it does share the data with processing partner Cardylitics.
Taking to social media to share their thoughts, Nectar card holders shared the benefits of Nectar Connect.
One person said: “I love using it, it means I can save a lot more money. But points can take up to 25 days to be added so just something to be aware of.”
Another wrote: “I would have liked a little more reassurance when signing up but I’m sure all my data will be safe.”
A third tweeted: “I had issues when activating my bank account and I’ve seen a lot of others having the same problem.
“It took a while to connect and I had to keep trying but it worked eventually.”
When shopping at Sainsbury’s, customers can also collect points through personalised offers.
