Sainsburys: How to use Nectar points?
You can pick up Nectar points at many popular brands such as Argos and Debenhams. You can then convert the points to vouchers to use at a range of locations- there’s no printing involved, just use your phone to show the offers. If you regularly shop online, you can add the Nectar toolbar extension to be reminded when you visit a website where you can earn points. You can even use Nectar points to pay for concert tickets- pay some of the ticket prices with points and top the rest up with cash. It’s easy to apply for a Nectar card- just go online to the Nectar website. You’ll also collect points when you shop and buy fuel at Sainsburys.
In 1997, Sainsburys and Bank of Scotland decided to form a joint venture to create Sainsburys Bank. It was the first supermarket bank in the UK and in 2013, Sainsburys announced they would buy out the share of the bank that was owned by Lloyds Banking Group, so by the end of January Sainsburys Bank was a fully owned subsidiary of Sainsburys Plc.
Sainsburys Bank has been authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. All of the financial products are linked to Nectar rewards.
The head office for Sainsburys Bank can be found in Edinburgh where the customer support centre is also located. In 2008, the bank had over a million active customers and has been growing constantly, especially since becoming wholly owned in 2014.
