Get 2,000 Nectar points with GWR

GWR needs you to update your email preferences and is offering 2,000 bonus Nectar points in return.

Unfortunately it is not as easy as making a few clicks, as in addition you need to book a train ride.

You need to visit the GWR website and update your marketing preferences here. In order to qualify for 2,000 bonus points you need to do so before 12pm on 29th November AND book a First or Standard Class Advance Single fare on services operated by GWR only.

Train tickets must be booked at least one day in advance. It doesn’t look like the T&Cs are mentioning any minimum spend or minimum distance…

The GWR/Nectar offer page is here.

You can update your preferences here and T&Cs are here.

  1. Phil Firmin says

    So for the GWR deal, you need to buy a Standard or First Class “ADVANCE SINGLE FARE” only on services operated by GWR. Once you subscribe and add your nectar number, and then look for fares, GWR helpfully tells you which fares will be eligible for the nectar deal, with a little purple speech-bubble. It should be noted, that for this type of fare, you need to travel a bit of distance. Reading and Slough into Paddington, for example, didn’t seem to have this fare type. However, Oxford to Paddington did, and I found a fare for just over £5 in two days time.

    Although I never intended to travel, I bought the ticket because of the Nectar double-up points this week means 2,000 points is worth £20 if you spend it in the departments in the double-up offer: such as Sainsbury’s TTD Wine. Interestingly the points credited within 24 hours of the purchase. I did elect to pick my ticket up from my local BR station, which I did on the day of booking, so this may have helped getting the points credited so quickly.

  2. Thanks Phil – Oxford to Reading, £3.00, single tomorrow.

    Two more bottles of Port from Sainsbury’s!

  3. How long do the points take to credit?

  4. I did Falmouth Docks to Falmouth Town for £1.40. Points haven’t credited yet.

  5. Oh and on Nectar double up… for what its worth…. a refund of an item goes back onto a Sainos gift card.

    • Hi RTS, how much have you tried to refund? I thought they would refund to nectar card in the past.

  6. Doesn’t work. The site errors – so I suspect they’ve blocked it. Railcards work 🙂

  7. Sorry ignore my comment about about it doesn’t work. it was meant to be a reply elsewhere
