    @MSE_Helen_K, thanks for the heads-up. Quick question: when I read the T&Cs for Avios conversion on the Nectar app, it already says 250 points instead of 300 for 400 Nectar points. Are you sure about the 16 November change date?

    Ignore the previous comment, probably early morning, did not read the top of the Nectar app T&Cs which says "valid until 16 November".

    Can't believe there's been no communication about this direct from Avios/Nectar (well actually, I can).  Thanks for the heads up. I've just done a manual conversion of the majority of my Avios, and set up auto conversion in the hopes that it will transfer over the remainder on Monday before the changes come into effect.

    Been auto-converting to Avios for a long time since they ran some sort of bonus promotion - saved me the temptation of spending them in Sainsbury's!

    I'm getting error after error on both the BA and Nectar sites. Anyone else? I'm out of the UK at the moment so wonder if that's the issue.
