Get up to 8,000 bonus Nectar points – and possibly a lot more – with Sainsbury’s Energy

This article has been sponsored by Sainsbury’s Energy

Sainsbury’s Energy is currently offering a strong Nectar points bonus if you move both your gas and electricity supply over to them. How does up to 8,000 Nectar points sound?

If you are a regular Sainsbury’s shopper, there is also an additional bonus which could be worth another 7,000 points per year on top!

Collecting Nectar points with Sainsbury’s Energy

If you move both your gas and electricity over to Sainsbury’s Energy at the moment, you’ll get 8,000 bonus Nectar points for joining on their 2-Year Fix & Reward tariff. That’s £40 worth of Nectar points just for switching.

Whilst the bonus is attractive on its own, there is an interesting extra benefit too for Sainsbury’s shoppers.

As a thank you for choosing them to power your home, you’ll get triple Nectar points on your Sainsbury’s shopping for the life of your tariff. Nectar members usually receive 1 point per £1 spent in-store at Sainsburys, but as a Sainsbury’s Energy customer, you’ll get an additional two points on top of that, which is not to be sniffed at.

(Triple points is for dual fuel customers. If you only move electricity across, not both, you receive double Nectar points at Sainsbury’s.)

Anything to note?

There is a limit on the bonus Nectar points you can receive in-store from Sainsbury’s Energy. You can collect a maximum of 3,500 points on Sainsbury’s shopping per fuel each year. So dual fuel customers are capped at 7,000 bonus points per year – that’s £35 worth of Nectar points.

Until you hit the cap, however, dual fuel customers get 3 Nectar points per £1 spent in-store, meaning more points to treat yourself with. You’ll be spoilt for choice on what to splurge your Nectar points on – have a look here for some inspiration..

Which tariffs qualify for bonus Nectar points?

The 8,000 bonus is only available when you sign up to the Sainsbury’s Energy 2-Year Fix & Reward tariff for both gas and electricity.

The other combinations are:

4,000 bonus points if you sign up for just one fuel for the 2-Year Fix & Reward tariff, or

4,000 bonus points if you sign up for both gas and electricity for the 1-Year Fix & Reward tariff, or

2,000 bonus points if you sign up for just one fuel for one 1-Year Fix & Reward tariff

Remember that if you sign up to just one fuel for either the 1- or 2-Year Fix & Reward tariffs, you’ll get double Nectar points on your Sainsbury’s shopping instead of triple points.
