Reducing allocation of Nectar Points by the Daily Mail
Had a surprise this
morning. Went to enter my unique numbers off the back of the Daily Mail
to get my Nectar Points and was presented with a "Wheel of Fortune".
I am and have been a subscriber to the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday for a long time now, The main perks for me besides the reduced price of paying upfront were the daily allocation of Nectar points. Because I am a "subby" I was getting double - so 10 points per day. This figure is lower than in previous years. Since the parting of ways with the likes of Tesco and the vouchers, the Mail joined up with Nectar. It started out as being reasonably attractive but over time the number of points allocated have been eroded and of course the cost of the newspaper has increased.
I'm afraid the Mail have taken a step too far now. This morning I span the wheel for the first time and guess what I got - a paltry 2 points and no longer doubled up, so no point in really being a subby from that perspective. I am being treated no better than a casual reader.
I suspect that the laws of averages may give me a maximum 10 every now and again, but overall the deal has lost its shine and its time to call it a day and save some money.
If they don't return to something like it was prior to this stupid new system then I'm off. It's just not worth it. The Mail is becoming a miserable read anyway.
