I'm becoming more frustrated at the limited ways to spend Nectar points. Used to be EasyJet - nope. then Expedia - nope. Does anyone have any bright ideas? If you go to the website it tells you loads of ways to earn Nectar points, but pretty much nothing on how to spend them. I've saved £86 worth (not riches beyond the dreams of avarice, I know).

    Sainsbury usually do a double up twice a year.

    You can exchange your points for a voucher worth twice the value to be spent in certain depsrtments.

    I have used them for Toys, electrical items, dvds and games, clothes, bed linen and wine.

    The second one is usually in November so handy for Christmas presents.

    I share your frustration. Nectar is pretty useless now. Easyjet was great. We had four flights through them.

    We’ve used them for Pizza Express numerous times, and once for Expedia,- now all gone.: Apart from the very occasional offers for Cafe Nero, we just use them at Christmas for wine or clothes when they have a double up on.

    Currently have about £120 worth of points.

    Has Caffe Nero dropped out of Nectar now?
    I was wanting to redeem some points there but can't find it...

    EDIT: Yay - it's back! :coffee:

    If you can't find it on the website then they are out of it.
