Reviews of Nectar redemptions worth more than 0.5p per point – Caffe Nero

+++ Caffe Nero is no longer a Nectar redemption partner +++

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.

Today I turn my sights on Caffe Nero.

Caffe Nero and Nectar

The Caffe Nero redemption deal with Nectar has been running for a while now. It was meant to be a temporary offer but there is now no expiry date showing.

Here are details of the Nectar redemption deal with Caffe Nero.

The deal is simple.

You redeem 350 Nectar points for any:

  • Caffè Latte
  • Cappuccino
  • Espresso
  • Macchiato
  • Americano
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Mocha
  • Flat White
  • Tea
  • Frappe Milkshake
  • Frappe Latte
  • Frappe Crème
  • Fruit Booster
  • Italian Iced Lemonade

at a Caffe Nero store.

Here is one tweak many people miss. The deal is valid on any size of drink. If you are using a voucher, order a large size! Extra shots or syrups will be charged.

Caffe Nero

The good news is that this discount is ‘genuine’. There is no other open-to-all way to get a discount on a Caffe Nero drink so you are saving the full retail price.

You even receive a Caffe Nero ‘stamp’ on your loyalty card with your free drink, as you would if you paid cash.

The deal is also easy to use.

You redeem online and receive an email with a voucher code in it. (You CANNOT take your Nectar card into a Nero store and swipe it.)

You don’t need to print off the code as there is no bar code to scan. It is OK to show the email on your phone to the barista.

The barista types the code into the till and it is immediately validated. You’re good to go!

The code is valid for 12 months so there is no rush to redeem.

What sort of value can you get here? Well, given the standard Nectar redemption value of 0.5p per point, any drink costing over £1.75 is getting you a better deal than normal.

If you go for a large Capuccino at, say, £2.65 then you would be receiving 0.75p per Nectar point. That is good enough for me. With some of the frappe drinks you may be hitting £3 for a large size – that is more than 0.8p per Nectar point. A lot better than Sainsbury’s …..

  1. I just redeemed for some vouchers and the expiry is end July 2019. They are instant to come through so I redeem just before I want to use anyway and if you have the nectar app it’s handy to store them and use them directly from there.

  2. Strange that the Nectar app does not show the Cafe Nero offer, does anyone know why?
