Nectar has launched a new way to collect bonus Nectar points – The Great Big Fruit & Veg Challenge!
You should check out my other blog post on how you can use the Nectar app to get LOADS of bonus Nectar points. I’ve managed to get almost 500 Nectar points a week from buying items I was planning on buying anyway!
Bonus Nectar Points
The Great Big Fruit & Veg Challenge gives you the ability to get over 1000 bonus Nectar Points through completing challenges. These Nectar points could be worth £5 if you convert to eBay coupons or even more at special Sainsburys double-up events. As you probably already buy fruit and veg in your weekly shop it shouldn’t be hard to quickly rack up these extra Nectar points. The Challenge is broken into two sections.
Challenge Part 1 – Any Fruit or Veg
The first part of the challenge is easy – you have to buy plenty of fruit or veg. This is split into 3 different point amounts and currently I’m in the first stage as I’ve only just started it. Here I have to buy 28 ‘portions’ of fruit or veg. For the purpose of the challenge 1 portion of fruit/veg is 80 grams if fresh or 30 grams if dried. When I’ve purchased these I will get a bonus 150 points. There is another stage for 200 points and then a final stage for 300 points. As you are buying fruit and veg every week anyway it should be too hard for you to get through these stages.
Challenge Part 2 – The Badges!
Like a healthy treasure hunt this part of the challenge gives you bonus Nectar points when you purchase specific items of fruit and veg. Here is a look at what the current bonus board looks like. You can get 390 bonus Nectar points when you buy these 6 items.
I’ll admit, I don’t usually eat a lot of Aubergine but I might give it a try for 100 bonus points! 😀 If you have any suggestions for a good aubergine recipe then drop it in the comments below.
Don’t forget you’ll need to download the Nectar App to get these bonus points. It is available for iOS and Android so should be downloadable on your phone. Not only will you see all the bonus point offers available in store, you’ll also be able to see Nectar partner offers where you can collect more bonus Nectar points and see discounts from other retailers.
There is no excuse for you not to have the Nectar app on your phone. An added bonus is that it has virtual version of your Nectar card so you can always collect your points, even if you have left the physical card at home!

I actually went to Sainsburys in hunt of some bonus points and filmed myself doing it. Check out the video below and see how easy it is to pick up extra Nectar points when you are in Sainsburys.
