Sainsbury’s is halving its Nectar points offer to instore and online customers, from two points to one point for every £1 spend.

The one Nectar point earned for every bag reused in store is also being chopped, when the new terms come into force on April 11, 2015.

The single point earned per £1 spent matches the offer on the forecourt, which will not change. In fact there will be a month-long 10x bonus points on fuel event after the change.

While customers will earn fewer points on their shopping, Sainsbury’s has reassured them there will be lots of new opportunities to boost their Nectar balance faster and enjoy better value when spending them; particularly at Christmas with Double Up events. Customers will also be able to spend their Nectar points in more places, such as PizzaExpress and Vue cinemas.
