    As far as I am aware my friend went in 3 times, bought one item- walked out, then back in again. Well, that's what I would have done. Easy enough
    I might have tried 2 items and said something like 'it's for my neighbour, please may I pay in two transactions?

    Both on Friday and Saturday, I saw customers and shop staff buying 1 or 2 items adding up to 1 or just over twice then do the rest on the bigger shop. Told my mum's friend to do this. Then she was worried about unable to use her 5x points voucher for spending 50. If she bought 52 of shopping in one transaction - she would have got 260 points. Whereas, doing it to my suggestion is 702 points. As first transaction 151 points, 2nd - 151 points and final transaction - 400 points. This based on first two transactions of 1 each and other one 50 with 5x points

    To those that are bit worried of doing the transactions one after another - pay with two different cards or one card, two cash etc

    Not a problem paid for 3 items seperately with the self scan and used the same card. 450 bonus points added.

    I was today refused my request to pay for 3 items in separate transactions at sainsburys local in long Eaton to get the bonus nectar points. Dont know if I misread the t&c and therefore if I'm entitled to lose my s**t over it. Walked out without the items. These offers are dangled in front of you like gold dust and we think they're great. I'll stick with tesco. Sainsburys can stick their offer.

    Strange that just this one poster had a problem. I'd be surprised if Sainsbury's staff had been told not to split purchases. Ironically there was a couple behind me in the queue that were splitting their shop but that was because they'd been buying for her mum as well so wanted a separate receipt. That's normal.

    Full house of extra points done and enough wine in stock to last until next offer which could be August. And 2 fuel vouchers which I'll use in the next week or so.

    Done my 12 purchases over past four days. My balance on my Nectar card was just under 6 on Thursday. Now it’s almost 18. Though I had 5x coupon for 30 and 2 coupons adding to 330 points for buying certain things. One of them was anything from a list of five things- went for the cheapest and the other one was for some cooked meat which had a YS on it. Think only spent 60

    The store I was at some of the cashiers were suggesting to do to buy an item for 1 or bit more for the first two transactions then the rest on another transaction
