Are you looking to understand the value of Nectar points?
In this post, we’ll be breaking down how much 100 Nectar points are worth so you can decide what you should do with the Nectar points you have.
If you don’t know how many Nectar points you have, then visit our article which will show you the different methods in which you can check your balance.
How Much Do You Need To Spend To Get 100 Nectar Points?
Nectar points are achieved through various different forms. However, the most common is by swiping your Nectar card when making standard purchases in stores that accept the card.
Most commonly Sainsbury’s, although I probably now recieve more Nectar points from the partnership the programme has with eBay than with Sainsbury’s (I find myself shopping for my groceries at Aldi which is significantly cheaper)
Provided you don’t take part in any bonus schemes in order to claim your Nectar points (you might get vouchers for bonus points when you spend a certain amount or buy a certain item) then you’ll have spent a total of £100 to earn 100 Nectar points in Sainsbury’s
That’s because, for every £1 you spend, you get 1 Nectar Point.
Remember, this will be on qualifying purchases only. Tobacco, lottery, newspapers etc… aren’t eligible for Nectar points.
However, you can recieve Nectar points from other sources including; taking surveys online, shopping through the Nectar website or linking your Nectar card with other programme participants and making an eligible purchase from them (much like the eBay partnership I spoke about earlier)
100 Nectar Points Equals
100 Nectar points are worth 50p if spent at Sainsbury’s.
Which means for example that 1,000 Nectar points equates to £5.00 to spend in Sainsbury’s.
However, you can also spend Nectar points at a whole number of different retailers including;
- Thorpe Park
- Go Ape
- Playstation magazine
- Virgin Trains
Some selected partners of the Nectar programme offer you more money for your Nectar points than the standard £0.50 you’d get for 100 Nectar points at Sainsbury’s.
For example, with 500 points you can get £3.75 off at Pizza Express which equates to the 100 points being worth £0.75 instead of £0.50 (an increase of 50%)
However, to get these offers you’ll need to exchange your points for vouchers online, in advance.
