    Sainsbury's 5000 pts Offer 9th Apr 17 at 8:04 PM
    Hi

    With the Sainsbury's Nectar credit card at the moment it is offering a bonus 5,000 points if you spend four times on groceries or fuel within a month. Does anyone know if there is a minimum spend for each of these four purchases? I have looked at the terms and i cannot see anything to say there is.

    Thank you

    From what I can see the previous sign up incentive was "spend £800 in Sainsburys in the first 3 months and get 5000 points" so this is considerably better

    To answer the OP's question, I don't see any sign of a minimum spend either.

    Just to follow up on this, I spoke to Sainsburys bank and they confirmed it was 4 transactions with no minimum spend.

    Initially customer services told me there was a £250 minimum spend, but after directing him to the website, he then transferred me to applications who confirmed that there is no minimum spend. Apparently the £250 was a previous old offer

    Finally use the web address hxxps://www.sainsburysbank.co.uk/cardsbonus1000 to get an extra 1000 points on top of the 5000

    Ahh, I'm glad I saw this thread!

    My Sainsbury's card arrived on Saturday and I thought it was a £500 spend (I didn't when I applied but read something on here after).

    I'm a new customer with Sainsbury's so if its no minimum spend I could just put through 4 items of shopping through the till separately?

    5,000 points sounds a lot (but it was obviously meant to). But then I found it was only worth £25, so I think I'll pass on that.

    yeah that how they do it make people think that it is alot but then a few years back they changed it they halved their rewards.

    Back then 5000 points would have been £50 now only half that £25

    I applied for this nearly a month ago and yet it will be another two weeks until the card actually shows up.

    Regardless of their product offering, I have to say Amex are impressive for turnaround times and customer service. Just getting this bloody thing in good time has been a challenge with form filling and posting things back.

    By the time it arrives, I won't have use of the card as it was for a specific purchase (replacement car), but 6 weeks feels like an infuriating amount of time to wait considering rival services and my previous experiences.

    I tried to feed this back to the rep on the phone, she said she would send me a complaint form through the post for me to fill in - of course she did!

    Anyone actually got the 5000 points after 4 spends? I am currently arguing with CS!

    YES! 5000 points credited to Nectar a/c yesterday - wouthout having to chase.
    Even better, received a letter today from Sainsburys Bank 'confessing' that the application form that they sent, and I signed, had misprints in it at two particularly embarrasing points relating to their standard (ie non-promotional) charges - section 2.1 (monthly repayments) would be 0.00% , and standard cash advance and balance transfer fees would also be 0.00% .
    They have told me thay are correcting this error ( to 2.25% repayment, and 3% advance/transfer) from 27th July - presumably the minimum legal notice period they can give.
    Four weeks to apply for a zero interest/zero charge balance transfer then?
