Nectar card holders can earn 10x points in Sainsbury’s on fruit and veg – here’s what you need to know

NECTAR card users can earn 10 times the normal rate when they buy fruit and veg at Sainsbury’s between January 2 and 15.

Normally, shoppers earn one Nectar point for every £1 spent in store and online at Sainsbury’s.

One point is then worth 0.5p, which you can spend at Sainsbury’s or at Nectar’s other partner retailers.

But for two weeks in January, as long as you spend at least £1, you’ll get 10 points for every £1 spent on branded and own-brand fresh, frozen, dried and canned fruit and vegetables.

This will boost the value of one point to 5p.

Bonus points will automatically be added to your account within 48 hours – you don’t need to do anything to get them.

How much are Nectar points worth and where can I spend and collect them?

NECTAR points are a loyalty scheme where customers can collect points to spend with certain retailers.

You can collect them by shopping at Sainsbury’s, Argos, Asos, Debenhams online, Disney Store online, eBay, Expedia, Three mobile online.

You can find the full list of brands offering Nectar points and their current deals on the Nectar website.

You can spend your points at a number of retailers such as Argos, eBay, Eurostar, Go Ape, and Sainsbury’s.

Nectar cardholders collect one point for every £1 you spend – but it’s worth 0.5p when you spend it.

That means 500 points are worth £2.50.

And the deal is available in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide, including the supermarket’s Superstores, Locals, petrol filling stations and for online grocery orders delivered between the promotional dates.

Sainsbury’s, which bought the Nectar loyalty scheme earlier this year, says the idea is to promote healthy food after the excesses of Christmas.

Ruth Cranston, senior direct marketing manager for Sainsbury’s said: “The most common New Year’s Resolution is to eat healthier, so we want to reward conscious choices, whilst boosting our customers’ points balance.”

But there are a few exclusions – shoppers won’t be able to get the deal in Isle of Wight stores or in the Lampeter and Rhyl branches where a shake-up of the Nectar scheme is currently being trialled.

Here’s how many Nectar points you need for £10, how much 500 points are worth and where you can collect points.

Nectar came under fire earlier this month after thousands of points were wiped from rail passengers’ accounts.
