I've never seen this mentioned here before, you may all know about it anyway, but if you have a Sainsburys Nectar card or belong to their Drinks Club, they send you a voucher a few weeks before your birthday for a free £4.99 box of Thorntons as a birthday present.

I don't know if it only applies if you had a Reward card before Nectar started (we did), or if completing a Nectar form from Sainsburys will still do the trick, or if there's a minimum spend to qualify - but anyway I am guiltily working my way through mine right now (having kept them hidden from the kids for 3 weeks!)

I received a birthday voucher for a large bar of Green and black choc from Sainsbury's. I have had a reward card for years

Ah - maybe there is more to it than that! DH got one last Sept and DD1 and I both got one this month so I assumed everybody would...hope I haven't upset you, Grommit

Aimsmum, I did try passing round the chocolate on MN the other afternoon but sadly it didn't work and I had to eat it all myself

fairydust Thu 28-Apr-05 15:16:38

pssst - my mummy probly made the chocolates your eating janh

sweetmonkey Thu 28-Apr-05 15:16:54

I think it varies each month . my dad got some ice cream and i got a box of cadburys creme egg minis. yum

JanH Thu 28-Apr-05 15:19:26

Really, fairydust? Tell her they're very good and extremely naughty!

I am really puzzled now though - and feeling even guiltier, so I'd better finish them quickly and get it over with ).

Can I hijack slightly?

If you like good quality chocolate, then have a go at this
I signed up 2 months ago, received my second parcel yesterday, and they are FANTASTIC.

Very rich, can't eat more than a couple at a time tho' (so not that difficult if you are watching your weight)

DH got his in December. They didnt have any of the organic stuff so he chose a diff box to the same value! yum yum and very generous of Sainsburys

fairydust Thu 28-Apr-05 15:24:59

really Janh my grandmother worked there before her and now my sister does i'm the only one who missed.

Employee's get to get as much chocolate as they won't whilst worknig but they can't bring any out.

Unfortunatley i don't like thorntons - and as usual have a cubard full (dh loves it) as mum gets a nice discount.

I have had a nectar card for ages (reward card before that) and have NEVER had chocolate

maybe it's new and i'll get one in august....

sweetmonkey Thu 28-Apr-05 15:31:36

i tend to get other vouchers through too and double points and stuff as well as other free bits and pieces. i have a loan with them though so maybe thats the reason, do you have a credit card with them or something?

otto Thu 28-Apr-05 15:36:23

I got free moisturiser for my birthday last year. Would rather have had the chocolates. Dp has never had anything and we have a joint nectar card.

Easy Thu 28-Apr-05 15:50:55

I have a nectar card (was the old reward card), and a credit card, but have never had any sort of gift from them. And when I think how much we spend at sainsburys .......

suedonim Thu 28-Apr-05 17:30:58

Dh and I have both had vouchers for Thorntons chocs. No one else I know has received the offer - weird, huh?

Today I received Sainsbury's latest triple points offer - I have to spend 130gbp each week to qualify! I might spend that on special occasions but every week???

ThePreciousIdiot Thu 28-Apr-05 17:33:11

HotelChocolat is the place to be if you love chocolate. Fantastic! (if not a little pricey)

Potty1 Thu 28-Apr-05 17:35:24

I had the voucher in September and I hardly ever go to Sainsbury's.

BTW they were yummy!

Easy Thu 28-Apr-05 17:36:37

TPI, see my link further down.

ThePreciousIdiot Thu 28-Apr-05 17:40:26

whoops sorry - must've missed that!

JanH Fri 29-Apr-05 14:47:54

I have had a brainwave - possibly! - maybe some people didn't put their DOB on the form when they applied (on the grounds that it wasn't essentail information)?

I have never been invited to a makeover photoshoot, Pamina! (Do you suppose they realise I don't need improvement? )

Choc flying over - only have the fruity ones left I'm afraid

SoupDragon Fri 29-Apr-05 15:40:04

Montezumas are pretty scrummy too.

Never had any free chocolate from my Nectar card. Maybe I ticked the "not interested in offers/promotions" box?
