Sainsburys have updated their app and now it can work in your favour. Check out this blog post to see how you can increase your Nectar Points balance for very little effort.
Step 1 – Get a Nectar Card
The first thing you need is a Nectar Card. You might already have one at which point you can skip this step. Visit www.nectar.com and set up and account. They will then provide you a card number you can use for your shopping.
Step 2 – Download the App
Next up, go to your application store of choice and download the App.
Step 3 – Log in
Log into the App and make sure it has all your details correct. You can check these on the ‘Home’ tab and then click the figure in the top right.
Step 4 – Find the Bonus Nectar Point Offers
The ‘Home’ tab does present all the general bonus point offers but we are interested in the Sainsburys Offers. These give you bonus points if you buy particular products.
Step 5 – Save All The Offers
A bit strange that you have to do this – there is no reason why Sainsburys couldn’t automatically attach these to your Nectar card but they choose to make you accept them. You can also choose to accept all or just individual items. I recommend saving all as either you’ll buy the items and get the points, or not buy them and they’ll expire after 8 days anyway.
Step 6 – Visit Sainsburys and Buy Items (or shop online)
Obvious step is obvious. Something to note is that if you order online, make sure the bonus points offer for items don’t expire before the delivery!
Step 7 – Get Your Bonus Points
The bonus points should appear on the app within seconds of you paying. Your bonus points appear as a separate line on the app – away from the points you earned from the actual shop.
Home Delivery of Supermarket Shopping
You can also get points if you get your shopping delivered. Check out my blog post on whether the supermarkets will delivery to you if you live in a block of flats.
