Reviews of Nectar redemptions worth more than 0.5p per point – starting with Photobox

(You can now no longer redeem Nectar points for Photobox credit)

Let’s face it: Tesco’s Clubcard is way more fun than Nectar! The reason for this is that the value of one point depends on how you use it.

If you spend your points at Tesco, 1 point is worth 1p. But if you spend them for example on Uber credit 1 point is worth 3p. With a little bit of research (and by reading our Clubcard redemption reviews) you can easily maximise your Clubcard points.

When redeeming your Nectar points, you are most likely to get just 0.5p per point which means you might as well use them to knock a couple of pounds off your Sainsbury’s shop. There are, however, a few Nectar redemptions which claim to offer more than 0.5p per point of value.

Time to find out if these deals are as good as they claim to be.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be looking at each of these deals to see if you are genuinely getting a ‘premium’ reward when you book them. You can find all Nectar redemption reviews here.


First up is photographic company PhotoBox. I must confess I’ve never personally used them as I do like Boots Photo.

Rob on the other hand is a PhotoBox customer and has used them for many years to store our digital photos, order prints and produce the annual family Christmas card!

Here are details of the Nectar redemption deal with PhotoBox.

As you can see, you get £3 of credit for every 500 Nectar points you redeem. This isn’t fantastic, but it is better than the £2.50 you would receive using your points anywhere else.


The good news is that this discount is ‘genuine’. It is also easy to use.

As soon as you redeem online, your PhotoBox voucher code is displayed on the screen. No waiting!

This code can be instantly redeemed into your PhotoBox account and added as credit balance

The price you pay for your photo products is the same regardless of whether you pay cash or use Nectar credits

You can still receive cashback on your order via TopCashback (if you are not already a TopCashback member, you can sign up via our referral link here and receive a £10 sign up bonus)

All in all, there is nothing to complain about here. You are genuinely getting a better deal than your typical 0.5p per Nectar point at PhotoBox.
