It has been a while since I updated my Nectar app on my iPhone but I’m glad I did today. Here is how you can get some bonus Nectar points if you have the Nectar app.
Do make sure you check out my other posts about how to Boost Your Nectar Points and my Year in Review. I’ve already had over 5500 bonus Nectar points from their bonuses and special offers. That is worth over £25 in spending power at Nectar (and more via some of their partners!)

Go to your application store of choice and download the App.
Juicy Points Boost
A bit of a strange one as usually Sainsburys and Nectar email me when they have a super-special bonus like this. They did the same before Christmas with the ‘Spin to Win’ offer. I got 1000 bonus points from that (as did everyone else as a minimum!). Instead, after I updated the app, I saw a new tile at the top of the ‘Home’ page.
And you can bet I did ‘Tap Here’ faster than a younger The Reverend hammering at the buttons in Daley Thompson’s Decathlon on the Commodore C64! Who doesn’t want free Nectar points to spend at Sainsbury’s (or eBay, as is the case for me!)
Free Nectar Points
This was an interesting screen. It says that the average shopper gets 1250 points over 3 months. As I have said above, I have had nearly 5 times that in the last 2 months! Even 1250 is worth over £5 in free shopping if you want it. I would say I’m not the ‘average shopper’ as I’m always looking out for extra Nectar points so really do max out what they offer me!
Once you clicked ‘Get Your Points Back’ you are presented with ANOTHER screen to click. Just tap away!
What Juicy Boost I Received from Nectar
I have received 1000 bonus free Nectar Points! Woo-Hoo! This equals £5 free shopping! Result! Obviously you may get a different value of bonus Nectar points so your mileage may vary.
I’m very happy with that. Even a 500 point bonus would be worth £2.50 off my shop at Sainsbury’s. Let me know in the comments below how many bonus Nectar Points you received.
Instantly Added Points
The best thing about this promotion, compared to the ‘Spin to Win’ over Christmas, is that the bonus Nectar points appeared in my account immediately. This means they are ready so spend as soon as I am. As you will know if you already follow my blog, I spend my Nectar points at eBay. I was going to grab myself another £2.50 voucher this morning but it looks like I can grab £7.50 instead! Free money for my retro gaming habit! I’m almost half way there to another £2.50 as well.
The Reverend’s Final Thought
Even if you don’t shop at Sainsbury’s, the Nectar App is well worth getting for the free offers that are easily converted to points for Avois or even credit to spend at eBay. I’ve had about £10 of bonus Nectar points in the last 2 months that didn’t require ANY spending at Sainsbury’s. At the moment you can convert 350 points into a free drink at Caffe Nero so there is another place to exchange your points for about 8 FREE drinks from a coffee shop, if that is your thing.
Let me know how many points you got and how you are looking to spend them.
