Nectar is to launch a Double Value Exchange programme this summer.
Supermarket Sweep - Tips & Advice
Trouble at Tesco
For three weeks from the 24th July points –holders will be able to double the value of the vouchers they qualify for with selected partners.
Typically 1,000 points are worth £5 when redeeming your Nectar points, but until 13th August this will double to £10.
You'll need to decide where you want to spend your points before heading to a Sainsbury's store to exchange them.
These are the partners taking part:
- Alton Towers
- Bella Italia
- Café Rouge
- Chessington World of Adventures
- The Dungeons
- Madame Tussauds
- Nectar Swim pools
- Thorpe Park
- Vue Cinemas
- Warwick Castle
There are still a few weeks before the programme kicks off, so if you already collect Nectar points and are looking for ways to boost your balance in time, there are plenty of things you can do.
One way is to use a credit card that rewards you with Nectar points for all of your spending.
For example, the Sainsbury's Bank Nectar Credit Card gives you four points for every £1 spent in Sainsbury's and one point for every £5 spent elsewhere. For the first three months you get ten points for every £1 spent at the supermarket. It also offers six months of 0% interest on your spending.
There's also the American Express Nectar Card. This card offers 10,000 Nectar points as a welcome bonus, so long as you spend £1,000 on the card in the first three months. After that you get two points for every £1 you spend wherever, plus up to four points when spending with Nectar partners.
A number of Nectar partners are currently offering special deals at the moment too, such as double Nectar points on hotel and package spending at Expedia and 200 points for taking part in the SwimBritain challenge with British Gas.
You can also bump up your points collection by downloading the Nectar search toolbar or watching TV adverts online. There's a full list of easy ways to collect points on the Nectar site.
Tesco is currently running a programme to double the value of the vouchers held by Clubcard holders, though this ends on 2nd July. Read Tesco Clubcard Exchange coming to an end.
