Don’t exchange your points! Nectar Christmas Double Up is coming soon

Don’t go spending your Nectar points! At least not until 8th November when Nectar and Sainsbury’s are launching their Christmas Double Up promotion.

From 8th November until 21st November you can exchange your Nectar points for Double Up vouchers which you can redeem from 15th until 21st November.

You can exchange up to a maximum of 4000 Nectar Points which usually gets you a £20 voucher but during the Double Up promotion you will get a £40 voucher.


How do I exchange my points?

Simply choose the department you want to spend your Nectar points in and exchange your points for a voucher at the customer service desk.

To jump the queue you can exchange your Nectar points from 8th November onwards but won’t be able to spend it before 15th November.

You can only exchange your points in major Sainsbury’s stores. However, once exchanged, you can spend them either in-store, online and at petrol stations.

No all departments are taking part in this Double Up promotion.

The following departments are included:

  • Electricals
  • Entertainment
  • Homeware
  • Seasonal
  • Taste the Difference wine, champagne, sherry and port
  • Toys
  • TU clothing

Once you’ve chosen your preferred department and exchanged your Nectar points for a voucher you cannot change your mind regarding the department.

More information can be found on this page of the Sainsbury’s website and the T&Cs are here.

  1. Thank you for the heads up! I love supermarkets are helping us all with the Christmas spending.

  2. Does anyone know how this works for main and supplementary cards? i.e. can we have one voucher per area per card?

  3. “………at petrol stations” – does that mean we can use it for petrol too?

    • Sainsbury T&C, item 4 reads “4.The promotion is NOT available Online, in Concessions, Sainsbury’s Locals, Sainsbury’s Locals in partnership with Eurogarages or in Petrol Stations.”
      Gift Cards will not be included, as they do not fall into one of the 7 categories.
      If you have a large amount of NPs (30k+) it makes sense to visit several large stores, prior to the 8th Nov, and buy something at each, ensuring you swipe your Nectar Card at each store. This will allow you to use your Nectar Card at each of those stores to get vouchers at each, from the 8th onwards. For example, if you want to buy £120 worth of TTD Champers you can get 3 x £40 vouchers buy visiting 3 different stores.

      • I thought it was one voucher per category per card, i.e. you cannot have 3 x £40 vouchers for wine?

  4. Are gift cards excluded?

  5. Nigel Hall says

    Yes, I am confused. I am sure that last time I got more than one voucher for £40 of wine. But the terms and conditions seem to suggest that there is a limit of one voucher per section, wines, entertainment etc.

  6. Hi Anika, Are you sure the AMEX Nectar promo page from 4 Oct works?
    I can’t find the offer anywhere in my nectar account (only one for 20,000)?

  7. In theory it’s one voucher per category (it’s always said that in the T&Cs). In practice you’ve always (in the past) been able to get as many vouchers per category as you want. The only thing stopping you is the store assistant – so if you ask for five clothing vouchers in one go, they’ll most likely say no. But if you go back at different times/go to a different store assistant, then you can get as many as you want, the computer system doesn’t stop you. However, you can still only use one voucher per transaction. So you couldn’t exchange 5 x £40 of electronics vouchers and use them to buy a £200 TV.
    Disclaimer: this is how it worked in previous double ups, it could be different this time around (but I doubt it).

  8. Exactly what I thought. So if you have a bunch of electrical things you want or toys or clothes go on different days to swap for vouchers and then shop online in different transactions etc
