You will be able to convert East Coast Rewards points to Nectar

If you travel by train, you are probably aware that the East Coast franchise will be taken over by Virgin Trains soon.

Virgin Trains has already announced that it will be offering Nectar points, at 2 per £1, in the same way as it does to customers on the West Coast route.

There has been some confusion over what will happen to East Coast Rewards, the existing generous loyalty scheme.  Now we know.

If you have any East Coast Rewards points, you will have until the end of September to use them.  At that point, or at any point before, you can convert them into Nectar points at the rate of 1 to 6.

This is not a great deal, although if I am honest it is more generous than was absolutely necessary.  If you have 1,000 East Coast Rewards points, you are far better off redeeming them for a First Class return train ticket than taking £30 of Nectar points!

What is good is that it will allow everyone to completely empty out their East Coast Rewards balances.  You won’t see any points going to waste.

East Coast Rewards was great whilst it lasted, but we should move on.  Hopefully there will be some interesting Nectar promotions on offer with Virgin Trains.
