They are worth a wee bit now but how to spend them is another thing - i have no idea and they seem shit value

Who knows about these things??

check the nectar site and go for something youlike but would not spend money on or use them insainsbury against thecostof food shopping

What is that worth in real terms?
Is it £126,491 off your shopping in Sainbury's? Surely not!

I have this problem with Nectar points - quite the opposite of the vast choice of things to spend Tesco Clubcard points on. For me, the best value would be to have a massage at a Cannons gym - but loads of my local Cannons are excluded very helpful. The value is certainly not 4x like the Clubcard points.

i dont know how it accrues but its all sainsburys shopping yes

www.nectar.com/rewards/generalSearchHome.nectar

I can't do links but type this in and you can see what to spend it all on...bathroom stuff for new bathroom perhaps???

Personally, I think that with Sainsbos points, it's best to spend on shopping as the return rate on deals is so pathetic. You have to spend £2,150 on shopping to get an Alton Towers adult ticket!

Otter · 29/05/2007 20:34

that is an idea nikki - can you?

Otter · 29/05/2007 20:35

Well there is a list of shops there so I'm sure one of them do bathroom stuff - even if its just really nice accessories, big fluffy towels and lots of candles for when you and DH/DP want some ahem...quiet time!

FrannyandZooey · 29/05/2007 20:37

Have you spent 126,491 quid at Sainsbos to get them?

Slubberdegullion · 29/05/2007 20:37

I always spend my nectar ponts in Argos. And ALWAYS on stuff for me (seeing as I'm the one gaining them by trawling round Sainsbury's every sodding week).

I save up my points and then splurge in Dec. Last year i got some lovely hair straighteners with all my points.

Otter · 29/05/2007 20:38

i am not sure franny - i have had the card 8-10 years

I always save them & then get ALL the Christmas Food, Drink & some pressies (CD's, Videos, Books etc) for free in December.

We have a Sainsburys Visa Card so Double points on all Sainsburys Shopping & Petrol + Points on all other amounts spent with card.

Otter · 29/05/2007 20:55

yes i have a sainsbo visa card too - tried to bribe dp to buy me a chair i want with the old xmas shopping offer but he seemed unimpressed and srated wittering about sex

You get 2 nectar points per pound, so you haven't spent that much, just 60 odd grand!

DANCESwithnewlytannedlegs · 30/05/2007 10:07

STOP! Don't spend them in store! Apparently that is the least 'valuable' thing to do with them. Hang on I'm going to find the tightarse financial site that I read this on... they have the best advice on where to spend them.

DANCESwithnewlytannedlegs · 30/05/2007 10:19

Look here

PetronellaPinkPants · 30/05/2007 10:22
