I’ve read several contradictory statements from Nectar saying that anyone can get this, and only people who were sent promotional mail will get it.
It’s still unclear whether the points will be paid to you if you don’t receive an email or letter.
I’d say it’s still worth doing this in case it goes into spam/lost into post – or for some reason they pay the points to everyone. But don’t get your hopes up.
I write this blog with much excitement in my fingers – because Nectar are giving away free points to all customers, and the minimum anyone can get is £5 with Nectar Spin to Win.
There’s nothing better than free money, especially when you don’t have to do much to get your hands on it.
This new Nectar promotion is just that. By having a spin on its ‘Spin To Win’ game, you can win between 1,000 to 1,000,000 Nectar points added to your account.
The lowest you can win (1,000 points), is worth £5 – so if you’re a Nectar card holder, it could be the easiest £5 you’ve ever earned (and you may win more).
Here’s how it works:
Nectar Spin To Win
This is basically a little promotion from Sainsbury’s and Nectar, where each person with a Nectar card gets one spin (and one spin only) to get some free points.
As part of the promotion, you can win either:
- 1,000 Nectar Points (£5)
- 2,000 Nectar Points (£10)
- 5,000 Nectar Points (£25)
- 10,000 Nectar Points (£50)
- 1,000,000 Nectar Points (£5,000) – but only 3 people win this
I completed the promotion on my Nectar account and my mothers. I picked up a £10 prize, but my mum was lucky enough to pick up £25 worth of Nectar Points. Here’s what the Nectar Spin To Win wheel looks like:
How To Enter
To have a spin of the wheel to see if you win £5 or £5,000, head on to the Nectar promotional page.
You’ll need to sign in to your online account before spinning, so you may have to click on the link twice – as it’s hard to find once you’ve signed in.
Once you’ve had a spin and landed on your prize, you’ll have a screen similar to the one above. If you don’t win on the first spin, you should be able to spin again – but most people win first try.
Nothing else will happen after the ‘congratulations’ message, so you’re free to close the page. You won’t receive any emails or anything confirming – but don’t worry, it’ll be tracked.
You will receive the amount of Nectar points won in spin to win 28 days after the close of the competition.
The end date is January 4th, so you’re likely to have the points credited on February 1st 2021.
Although you have to wait a little bit to get them, it’s a total freebie, and a good way to start your 2021.

Trading Up Nectar Points
Earning these Nectar points for free is great. You can use them in store when doing your shopping to get money off food – but this only gets you a value of 0.5p per point.
Unlike the Tesco Clubcard, there aren’t as many uses for trading up your Sainsbury’s Nectar points, but there are a few.
Check out the list of retailers you can spend your Nectar points with on its website.
Other Ways To Earn Nectar Points
If you fancy running up your Nectar balance, you don’t have to just shop in Sainsbury’s. There are plenty of ways to collect them.
First off, if you read the Daily Mail, you can collect points with each newspaper you buy.
Also, make sure that you’ve connected your eBay account and your Nectar card, as when buying through eBay you can collect points.
Whenever you’re buying a holiday through Expedia, if you put in your Nectar card number before you buy, you can earn 200 points for a hotel, or 2,000 points for a holiday package. This is worth £1 and £10 respectively.
Also, have a look at the weekly Sainsbury’s Nectar in store rewards, which will earn you extra points for buying certain items.
