The eXhilaration Choice Voucher for Her lets the winning mumsnetter choose a fun filled or luxurious treat from a selection including make-up lessons, an afternoon of pampering, afternoon tea for two, or for the more adventurous, an indoor skydiving class or a chocolate making workshop.
The lucky winner can spend their 20,000 Nectar points on a range of fantastic treats available on nectar.com, from the latest gadgets, travel and weekends away to music, home furnishings and fun days out.
Women and mums especially, are always on the look-out for a bargain and even more so right now as many tighten their belts. There are always more ways to save money and get something for nothing. Using a Nectar loyalty card is one of the easiest ways to be savvy in the current climate. Points can be collected in lots of different ways; by shopping on the high street and online, on household expenditure and even on holidays to name a few. Collectors can then use the points to treat themselves!
Recent Nectar research has shown more than half of savvy consumers now have loyalty cards (51%) that they take with them when they’re out and about shopping. The research also revealed that almost three out of five shoppers (59%) are now not afraid to haggle on the high street to get reduced purchases.
