“Oh So Sweet”

published 16/12/2006

ProLoads of places to earn and spend the points

ConsCould take a while to accumulate points

Since I started working for Sainsbury's (I won't start every new review with that, I promise!) it's come to my attention that very few people fully understand the Nectar card program, so I thought I'd try and do something about that with an informative review. Mostly this will be from a...

I have had a Nectar card for years but when I applied for a new Clubcard I decided to get a new Nectar card at the same time. After receiving my new Nectar card I realised I had underutilised my previous card and began to rack up the points quite quickly, within 4 months I had £25 worth of points...

As many of you will know, I have a 'thing' about everything 'Sainsburys', and therefore I apologise in advance if this op is slightly biased; I'll do my very best to argue a balanced case... ££ So what is the 'Nectar Card' scheme all about ? ££ As a regular customer of Sainsbury’s, I’d had one of...

I have had a Nectar card for ages now, and since I have been living in my own home doing my own shopping, I have noticed the points go up so quickly, it's fantastic! I will give you a rough idea of where you can earn points, how to spend them and the idea of the Nectar card. The Nectar Card...

“BEES MAKE HONEY”

published 02/01/2007

ProAccepted at many retail outlets

ConsA bit fiddly at the checkout

I was introduced to Nectar Card loyalty scheme/rewards whilst shopping at Sainsbury's in town. A young female offered to sign me up and I fell for it; I completed a few forms and was on my way. That must have been a year or 2 ago (I'm not to sure). Very quickly I noticed that the size of my...

“What are you saving for?”

published 25/07/2006

ProLots of companys invloved

ConsSlow to collect

All company seems to want are business and want to keep it. They have tried many methods with low prices, having everything you need under one roof, free parking, free delivery and BOGOF (buy one get one free) are few offers to name. One of the methods they found and is working is by offering a...

I used to be a very loyal shopper at Sainsburys, back in the days of the Reward card - I was a huge fan of this loyalty scheme and used my points to get Airmiles and then flights overseas when my daughter was a baby. Over time however my habits changed...I found Asda better value for money and...

ConsSlow To Earn Points

I originally had a BP Reward card that slowly built you up points to spend in Argos. However a while back now BP stopped their reward card and started to use the Nectar Reward Card instead. As I use BP quite often, although not as much as I used too, I figured what the harm I might as well get...

“Sweet as...”

published 20/07/2004

ProCosts nothing and rewards you!

ConsRemembering to take your card when you shop!

People tend to fall into two categories - they either like loyalty cards or they hate them. I'm someone who likes getting things for free, and so far as I'm concerned, getting a reward for shopping somewhere I'd do my shopping anyway can't be bad. Nectar was originally a replacement reward card...

On the surface this seems to be another wholly negative review from someone who's fast becoming Ciao's very own Victor Meldrew. Not so, actually, because although Nectar has recently left me infuriated and rapidly developing an acute case of SARS (Scepticism About Reward Schemes), I'm making a...

Promoney for shopping

Conshow can there be any? You dont pay for it!

Nectar was introduced in 2002 to replace Reward Card from Sainsbury’s, Debenhams loyalty scheme, Barclaycards points system and the tie up between Argos and BP, Premier Points. Loyalty Scemes have been around since they were introduced by Tesco in the 90’s with Clubcard. Before I go on writing...

“The nectar loyalty scheme”

published 18/02/2009

ProCollect points at hundreds of places online

ConsFew retailers accept it on the high street

~ Introduction ~ First of all I have been with nectar for a couple of years now so I think it is about time I reviewed it. When I first saw this loyalty card I was exited by the fact that I could use it at Sainsbury's - my preferred supermarket. It can also be used at their petrol stations and...

The Nectar Reward Scheme was launched on 16th September 2002 and was heralded as the amazing new big thing to happen in reward schemes. It is a joint venture between Sainsbury’s, Barclaycard, Debenhams and BP. As the nectar card replaces existing loyalty schemes (Sainsbury’s...
