Sainsbury’s Double Up with Nectar is coming end of March

Are you thinking about exchanging some Nectar points? If you want to get more money for your points, wait until the 30th March.

double up

For 7 days, starting on the 30th March, Sainsbury’s is running a Nectar points double up promotion. Customers can exchange their Nectar points for vouchers worth twice their usual value to spend in 6 departments.

That’s basically 1p per point instead of the usual 0.5p per point.  This could be a good opportunity to empty out your Nectar account.

The 6 departments included in this promotion are:

  • Tu Clothing
  • Toys
  • Electricals
  • Entertainment
  • Homeware
  • Taste the Difference still, sparkling and fortified wine.

A full list of the categories can be found on the website.

double up how much

To exchange your Nectar points for vouchers visit the customer service desk in your nearest Sainsbury’s store (excluding Locals and petrol stations).  You need to choose a department and the value of your voucher (£10, £20, £30 or £40).

All vouchers expire on 5th April at 23:59 (depending on store opening times). For terms and conditions check the Sainsbury’s website.

  1. Is £40 the max exchange value? Or could I double up my £120 points to get £240 off off a dyson?

    • Nope, t&c #1 says max 4000 points per category.

      This really isn’t as good at it appears, you have to spend the entire voucher in one go so it’s best to check if what you want is in stock first, then get the voucher, then buy your stuff

    • Thanks for the replies. And yes I agree then this a very rubbish offer really!

  2. Although the headline promotion looks attractive, it’s actually hugely restrictive and not as generous as it might seem.
    Here are some of the downsides
    – There is just one week to redeem points AND spend the vouchers. Essentially this means that you should pick the items you want off the shelves before queueing up to redeem your points.
    – The spend is limited to £40 in each category. So you can’t use it to buy a Dyson or iPad at half price
    – You can’t underspend – for example exchange 4000 points to get a £40 voucher and spend against a £33.99 game. There is a concession of 50p, which means that the minimum spend with a £40 voucher is £39.50
    – Other promotions disappear. Sainsburys regularly run 25% off all clothing and less frequently 25% off all wine. I bet these won’t be running during the double up period

    Despite this, Nectar Double Up is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. With a jab to the thigh with a tennis racket, the comparision is less certain.

  3. Well it’s here. The staff at my nearest store were very helpful, checking that the items you wanted came to the right price in the right category before issuing the vouchers. I was able to collect and spend right at the CS desk, and pay for the rest of my shopping as well! Even got nectar points on the whole transaction, I thought you normally don’t get nectar points when spending nectar points!
