    To use your voucher simply give the voucher to the cashier at the checkout before 11.59 Tuesday 25 November 2014. Remember, to redeem your voucher you need to have spent at least up to the value of the voucher in your chosen department. No change is given for vouchers.

    complicateddouble boost
    Similar experience here too. I had £47 worth of point to double up, to potentially£94 vouchers. You can only double up to get vouchers in multiples of £10 (to a voucher maximum of £40), and as seen, the goods bought must exceed the voucher value I.e. You have to spend at least £10,£20,£30 or £40 in that category, and make up the difference above each threshold.

    I got vouchers across 4different departments, but the process seemed overly complicated, given that you have to do it in store and at specific tills,(usually the customer services desk) it took me & the poor lass on CS a good 20minutes to figure out how best to jiggle the vouchers to fit what I was buying (some items went back on the shelf as they were less than a tenner & mse mantra said no!)- luckily it was late last night so I wasn't causing a queue!. They said a LOT of people were turning up not understanding the many restrictions in this short lived scheme AND they are expected to do the normal CS role as well!! Glad I'm not doing it today (Saturday)!

    If they run this scheme again it needs simplifying, and it's on-the-ground administration needs thinking through a lot more!

    A quick heads-up to say that the next Nectar Double-Up event is happening from 18 March to 7 April.

    It's mentioned in the Sainsburys Bank Money Matters mag:
    http://digital.edition-on.net/links/8871_money_matters_winter_2015_g.asp?page=7

    No details yet, just says that points could be worth double or triple their usual value.

    I'm very confused about how this works! I have £7.40 worth of points and want some ebooks. How do I actually buy them? Do I have to have £10 worth before I can double up?

    Double UP
    My recommendation is to shop first, then go to customer services to redeem your double up points.


    I did this yesterday and brought a stove top kettle for (free) £20
    £10 of nectar point doubled UP to £20. Very pleased as I only wanted a kettle like this for when we have power cuts as a saucepan of water never makes a good cuppa.

    go to entertainment - pick up 4 blu-rays for £50 offer. use £40 voucher and remaining £10 on payment of your choice.

    4 blu-rays for £7.50 equivalent (and dont forget to ebay the UV codes for ~ £2 a pop).

    Not bad value.

    I have had a problem for 3 months where I can only collect 7 points per month with the Nectar toolbar. I used to be able to collect 200 per month. Is anyone else having this problem?

    DHL and nectar
    Not many people know this exists- but I have a business nectar card. What it means as i've linked it to my work DHL account I get nectar points for everything my company ships DHL.

    So for some people this is serious points. Last month I was getting 10 points for every pound spent with DHL.

    Sainsbury's Double-Up on nectar points
    Hi, could anyone confirm if I am wright?

    As far as I know there is a limit of £40 per category per card. I share my nectar account with my wife, we have two cards but collect points into one pot and saved around 10.000 points. Can we take, for example, two £40 vouchers for each of our cards in same category and then use them both in one transaction buying one item?

    "If you change your mind, items can be returned or exchanged within 30 days, in line with Sainsbury's usual returns policy – so as long as you have proof of purchase and the item's in its original condition. Instead of the points being returned to your balance, you'll be given a cash refund for the full product price."

    Does this effectively mean you can get the cash value of double your points if you buy and return an item?

    Nectar card - getting someone elses points
    So has anyone else encountered this? I've been getting significant amount of points from someone spending in a shop that I, nor the other card holders, do not use. I have emailed Nectar already (being the kind soul I am ) but I was wondering how wide spread this issue is? We must have received £10-£20 now...

    I've got about £80 on my card. They've just accumulated was Sainsbury's (don't buy much in there these days) is the most convenient place for the bits I can't get in Aldi. DH adds to it by using Paypal (I think) or some other online purchasing that he does. Oh and I have a Sainsbury's credit card which add a few points whenever I use it which is often.


    I just accumulate them because I can. I'd never use Sainsbury's over other better value places.

    I'm up to about £65.
    My other half had almost £100 on his! Which we converted to vouchers for Expedia and paid for a big chunk of our holiday!
