Default Spending Nectar points on cigarettes?

A friend just asked me if you can spend your Nectar points on cigarettes, I said I dont think you can as you cant collect points from cigarettes, but having looked over the website (quickly I might add) I cant find anything that mentions it.

Does anyone know if you can actually spend your Nectar points on cigarettes?

I would change them on to a gift card and pay with that. I do this all the time to save for xmas.

Just buy something small at the counter like a 20p newspaper and take a sainsburys gift card ask them to load it with whatever value you have and then say can I pay with points. Jobs a gooden.

Thanks for the reply, she ended up ringing Nectar and they said although you cant collect points from the purchase of cigarettes you can spend your points on them.
