Urgent 1,000 free Nectar points (worth 5 - 10)Register at five different train companies to get up to 1,000 free Nectar points

3 days left

MSE Update 9.30am, Thu 24 Apr: Nectar has informed us there will be a change to the amount of points you'll get. We'll update you here once we have confirmation of what the change will be and how many points you'll get.

You can get up to 1,000 Nectar points, worth £5 to spend at eBay, Homebase, Argos and possibly £10 at Sainsbury's, and all you need to do is register with five First Group train sites by Sun 27 Apr (you can't have registered with them before).

Each of the five sites currently give you 200 points (the ongoing deal is usually 100 each) when you sign-up at the following:


Possibly get £10 voucher to spend at Sainsbury's...

Until 13 May Sainsbury has a double your Nectar points value deal on.  So if you get the points and redeem in time, your 1,000 points could be worth £10 not £5 there.

Officially they tell us the points can take up to 28 days to be added to your account. But, when we tried this last Fri, the points were ready to spend on Sun. So there is a chance you’ll make it in time.

Double your Nectar point stash value at Sainsbury's*On selected departments at larger Sainsbury's stores. Min 1,000 points

19 days left

From Wed 23 Apr to Tue 13 May, Nectar* card holders with at least 1,000 points can exchange them at larger Sainsbury's stores for a voucher worth twice the usual value. Spend the voucher on selected categories (choose the category when you exchange), but make sure you spend your voucher in one go though, as you won't get change. 

1,000 points would normally get you £5 off your shopping, but during the double-up, you'll get £10 off the categories below.

You can only use one voucher per person, per category (collect at customer services), up to a maximum of £40 (4,000 pts) per category by Tue 20 May.

What can I spend it on?

There are a fair few exclusions, but within the categories, here are some examples of what's included:

  • Tu Clothing: Womenswear, menswear, children's wear, shoes, accessories & more. 
  • Electricals: Laptops, iPods, tablets, TVs, DVD players, radios, speakers, mobile phones and more.
  • Beauty: Make-up, nail care, bathing, shampoo & conditioners, beauty gift sets, skincare and more.
  • Home: Tableware, glassware, cookware, bakeware, cutlery, bathroom accessories and more. 
  • Magazines: Fashion, celebrity, home, lifestyle and interest.


See the full list of included and excluded items within each category.

How good is this?

If you’ve been hoarding a stash of points, now’s a good time to spend them. As the maximum amount is £40 per category, if there's an item you've had your eye on, such as a TV, compare prices first so you're getting the best value for your points.
 

Free 1,000 Nectar points (worth £5 - £10).

Register on any First Group train website by Sun 27 Apr and you'll get 200 free points. As there are five sites, you can get up to 1,000 points, worth £5 to spend at eBay, Homebase, Argos or possibly £10 at Sainsbury's. See the 1,000 free Nectar points deal just above for more info.

Excludes Sainsbury's Local, convenience stores, petrol stations and online.

Earn Nectar points on First Group train tickets*Valid with First Great Western, First Capital Connect, ScotRail & more

Ongoing

If you buy almost any train ticket online from First Group rail companies (First Great Western, First Capital Connect, ScotRail, First Transpennine Express or Hull Trains),  you'll earn two Nectar points per £1.

For season tickets, it's a tad different. You'll get 50 points for a weekly, 200 points for a monthly and 2,500 points for an annual pass, no matter the cost or distance. One point = 0.5p, so 2,500 points is worth £12.50.

But, wait till Mon 14 Apr and you'll get double the points on most tickets booked online until Sun 27 Apr, including season tickets, first class travel and journeys booked using a railcard (total cost after discount). You can't get Nectar points on gift vouchers, London Travelcards or Plusbus tickets.

You should never choose where to shop due to loyalty schemes such as this one, but if you've already got a Nectar card and you're planning to travel by rail, here's how to make the most of the points: 

1) Compare prices

If you know exactly where and when you want to travel, compare prices via these booking sites and at the First Group rail company which covers your route: First Great Western, First Capital ConnectScotRail, Transpennine Express or Hull Trains. If it's cheaper via the other booking sites, consider whether it's worth getting the points.

2) Link your Nectar card to your First Group account

Log into your train company account and add your Nectar card number. Then book your journey.

3) When to spend points

Points will be added to your Nectar account within 28 days and you can spend them straight away (though Nectar sometimes runs double exchange events where your points may be worth double so you may want to wait till then). Usually, you need a minimum of 500 points to get a £2.50 voucher to spend at Nectar outlets.

If you've not got a Nectar card, register online at Nectar.com or pick up a registration pack in Sainsbury's or Homebase. 

Section 75 Free protection for all shopping!

There's a secret phrase that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. "Section 75" laws means your plastic must protect anything you buy over £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust you can still get your money back.

Although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards there is something else to fall back on if you paid on a Visa debit or electron card, or Visa credit card under £100 (otherwise go for Section 75). Known as Visa Chargeback, this is part of Visa's internal rules and not a legal requirement. Full details of Section 75, chargeback and how to claim in the Section 75 Refunds guide.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links.
