A review of Holland and Barrett’s rewards for life – and save £5 on £40 spend

Something a little bit different today!

We’ve mainly covered Tesco Clubcard and Nectar here at Shopper Points, but there are many more loyalty cards out there.

Today I want to have a look at Holland & Barrett’s rewards for life card, as this is one of the cards I use quite a lot.  I love Holland & Barrett for their great selection of nuts, seeds, vitamins and other health products.

The rewards for life card is pretty straightforward.

  • When you first activate your card you receive 150 bonus points (worth £1.50)
  • You earn 4 points for every £1 you spend in-store or online
  • You get bonus points when purchasing certain products
  • You get exclusive offers tailored for you
  • Your reward points will be turned into vouchers to spend in-store or online
  • Vouchers are sent out every quarter as long as you have earned 50 points and can be spent online or instore.  They cannot be redeemed for cash.

At 4 points per £1, you are getting back 4% of what you spend.

Unlike Tesco’s Clubcard and Nectar card you can only use your rewards for life card at Holland & Barrett.  There are no options for earning or spending your points at other retailers.

The rewards for life card is definitely not the most exciting rewards card, but if you do shop at Holland & Barrett it is worth getting it.  There is an app available which means that you don’t even need to remember to carry your card with you when shopping.  Turning down a 4% rebate on your spending seems a bit silly.

More importantly, as there is almost always a promotion like buy one get one half price or penny sale (buy one product get the second for 1p), you almost never have to pay the full price.  Having a rewards for life account means that you get to hear about these offers when they launch.

For example until Tuesday 6th September you get £5 off when you spend £40 online.

…. so if you’ve been planning an order then today is a good day to do it!  Free ‘click and collect’ delivery is available for online orders.

The Holland & Barrett website is here and the rewards for life page is here.

    I discovered fairly recently that even with the buy 1 get one half price offer, most of things I bought were actaully more expensive at H&B than sainsb or tesco. So beware!
