Win 10,000 Nectar points when you sign up to Oxfam’s ‘Tag Your Bag’

Back in January, I wrote about how you can earn Nectar points from donating items to Oxfam via their ‘tag your bag’ scheme.

‘Tag your bag’ uses Gift Aid to increase the amount of money received from your donation. Even better, if you are a higher rate taxpayer you receive a little present from the tax man too!

You can sign up online or in your nearest store. You need to fill in a form with your name and address and tick a box to confirm that you are a UK taxpayer.  Oxfam can then reclaim an additional 25% of Gift Aid on top of every future donation of second hand goods you make. If your products sell for £30, the Government gives Oxfam an additional £7.50.

Every six months you receive an email from Oxfam telling you how much they made from your items. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can include this amount – £30 in my example – as a charity donation on your tax return. You will then receive an additional tax rebate of £7.50 for yourself. Everyone wins!

Oxfam Nectar

To encourage you to try ‘tag your bag’, Oxfam offers 100 Nectar points purely for signing up via this website.

(If you are already signed up for ‘tag your bag’, you can add your Nectar number here and also receive the 100 points.)

You will also receive 2 Nectar points for every £1 that Oxfam raises from the sale of your goods.

Until 24th February, there is an extra incentive to join.

Everyone who signs up between 11th and 24th February will be entered into a free draw.  30 people will each win 10,000 Nectar points.  These are worth at least £50 and potentially more if you redeem for one of the items (see our list of best Nectar redemptions here) which get you more than 0.5p per point.

Details of the competition can be found here.  You don’t need to do anything extra apart from signing up for ‘tag your bag’ during the promotional period.

(Note that the small print for the competition says that it closes on the 25th.  The big image I reproduced above says the 24th.  For safety, I have assumed the 24th in this article.)
