Shoppers spending £10 or more in Sainsbury’s this weekend can earn an additional up to 5,000 Nectar points worth £25 in its ‘Swipe & Win’ promotion.
What’s the deal exactly?
If you spend £10 or more in one transaction at Sainsbury’s stores and participating petrol stations between today (2 February) and 11.59pm on Sunday 4 February you’ll get a coupon worth 200 to 5,000 Nectar points – the equivalent of between £1 and £25 in monetary value.
Shoppers with an online order worth £10 or more delivered or collected within this period will also qualify as long as they swipe their Nectar card in-store or enter their card details online.
This coupon is given on top of the Nectar points you’d earn from the transaction.
Why should I care?
You usually collect just one Nectar point per £1 worth of qualifying spends at Sainsbury's. So, on a £10 spend, you’d normally get 10 points, yet with Swipe and Win you’re getting the opportunity to earn an additional 200 to 5,000 points.
In addition, there’s no limit on the number of Swipe and Win entries per customer, meaning if you’re doing a big shop, break it down into smaller lots of at least £10 to earn as many coupons as possible.
One Nectar point is worth 0.5p to spend at Sainsbury’s, or more if you exchange points to spend at rewards partners, such as selected restaurants and cinemas. You do, however, need 500 points (£2.50) before you can start spending points.
What’s the catch?
Points are rewarded as a coupon and these coupons must be uploaded onto your Nectar card in a Sainsbury’s store by 11.59pm on 18 February 2018. If you fail to do this, you’ll lose the points on the coupon. You can’t redeem the coupon online.
Certain products are excluded from the £10 qualifying spend, such as spirits, TU clothing, and gift cards. Use the link below to see the full list of excluded items.
Some supermarkets and petrol stations are excluded from the offer, such as Sainsbury’s Centrals, Locals, and Pay at Pump petrol stations. Again, use the link below to see the full list of excluded stores and garages.
What other options do I have?
If you don’t shop or live near a Sainsbury’s, you can still benefit from loyalty schemes run by other major supermarkets, for example Tesco’s Clubcard scheme. See our guide to How supermarket loyalty cards and price match schemes stack up.

Thank you for flagging the typo that slipped into the news story above, this has now been amended. To clarify, one Nectar point is worth 0.5p not 50p. However, the illustrations given in the article are still correct.
