What is Nectar?
Simply put, Nectar is one of the largest Loyalty card schemes in the UK. Launched in 2002, it initially covered just 4 partner companies- Sainsbury, BP, Barclaycard, and Debenhams. It was a combination of the loyalty schemes of all 4 companies(except Debenhams which had no loyalty card scheme back then). For a club card with such a humble beginning, it now boasts of 500 brands and over 16.8million users and covers everything from food, travel, fuel, retail, newspapers and more! Although the ownership of Nectar did change a few hands, Sainsbury acquired it in 2018 for a whopping £60 million. Sainsbury has since been trying out new Nectar point earning scheme which considers user’s loyalty (as in how long he/she has owned the Nectar Club card for) and frequency of visits rather than the amount spent. This experiment means that your ‘loyalty’ towards the brand, indeed, is the only factor that matters. A pretty good idea for a loyalty scheme, isn’t it? This scheme launched in April 2018 is currently limited to stores of Isle of Wight.
Although the point-to-pound spent loyalty card scheme is an enticing factor for its userbase, the main reason for their success is the number of brands and industries it covers. A Nectar club card can get you points for air miles, train rides, filling fuel, buying groceries, purchasing newspapers, making calls, send couriers, shopping for a computer or even just munching on Pizza. See how one single loyalty card helps you earn loyalty points for almost every pound you spend? Moreover, Nectar gives you weekly updates on offers that are tailored to your specific shopping pattern which means you get even more value for your money.
So if you are in the UK, get a Nectar card for sure! Also, don’t worry about adding one more plastic loyalty card into your wallet, scan your card into our Reward Cards app and store it there without any hassle of a bulky wallet. You get to see your loyalty points and offers all in one place.
