    My partner has £20 worth of points so he can double up to £40 voucher. I have the same. My question is, can we use both our vouchers together? Ie to get £80 off a kindle or something?

    Hi - It depends if the Kindle is in the scheme - check carefully before hand. There's nothing that states you can't do this - but after my experince I'm not sure. I would phone central customer service - the staff haven't really been well-briefed in store and are sure about anything!
  • Not sure if posted elsewhere, double up (similar to clubcard boost) is on until Monday, so your nectar points will be doubled in multiples of £5 (e.g. if you have £10 of points it converts to £20 to spend in store). Can be spent on toys, wine, homeware, clothes and applies to things "on offer". E.g. I bought a toy reduced from £50 to £25 using the nectar double up voucher.

    Ends 25 Nov.

    Hope it helps.
  • Not sure why my post has been moved here. As a grabbit user, I personally never look at this forum and the double up option is available for toys, homeware, clothes - far more than just groceries. May have helped others if posted on grabbit (that's where I discovered clubcard boost)...
  • i found theres a bit of a con with this offer. I had a £20 voucher and wanted to buy something for £19.99 but this is not possible and because its electricals everythings expensive so i have to spend extra money on something i don't want to be able to spend my voucher
    not much of a reward :mad:

    is there anyway around this?

    I was told you can use the voucher but you won't get 1p change.

    I want to do the same to buy a tablet to get £40 + £40 off two nectar cards. I asked at customer services and was informed there was a maximum of £40 off per category (i.e. for electronics). I agree though I couldn't see anything in the terms that stated this explicitly. Tesco Clubcard offer is better as no limit on how much you can use.

    Just tried again to buy something for 19.99 with a £20 coupon, it wouldn't go through, a nice girl came over and suggested she can scan a packet of batteries and then take it off again

    im gutted now though, i just received an email from ebay, if you spend you spend your nectar points there you get 50% of the points back until 23 nov

    I've never had a problem getting/spending the double up vouchers at my local sainsburys.

    I have over £50 of points built up and was hoping there'd be a double up before Christmas...one more thing to put on my weekend 'to do' list!
    Common sense?...There's nothing common about sense!
  • The girl at customer services was very helpful. I had over £27 of points, so I doubled it up to £20 clothing, £10 for a hairdryer and £10 for gifts (nice smellies). I then realised I was as well buying trousers with the remaining £5 of points. The sales assistant advised me to put it through as a separate transaction as she said I could not put 2 vouchers for the same category through in one sale. She also gave me a triple points voucher to use. Once I had bought my groceries, I realised I once again had over £5 of Nectar points, so bought 2 nice bottles of sparkling wine, which only cost me £4! Basically, I used £30 of points giving me £60 of FREE items, it might take a bit of juggling, but it is well worth it. Just remember you must spend at LEAST the amount of the voucher, you cannot get a £9.99 item with a £10.00 voucher, but you can spend over £10 and pay the difference!
