New scheme enables Sainsbury’s shoppers to swap Nectar points for Avios
A new scheme launching on 25 January will enable Sainsbury’s shoppers to swap their Nectar points for Avios air miles.
Customers who collect Nectar points will be able to convert their points balance to Avios through the British Airways Executive Club. The points can then be put towards flights with British Airways or used for upgrades, hotel stays, car hire and more.
Every 400 Nectar points collected can be converted into 250 Avios. The conversion works both ways and customers who wish to receive more Nectar points can convert 250 Avios into 400 Nectar points.
To convert points, customers are required to link their Nectar and British Airways Executive Club accounts. Customers who are not existing British Airways Executive Club or Nectar members can join either club for free.
To celebrate the launch, Sainsbury’s is offering a welcome bonus of 500 Avios to customers who convert a minimum of 1,600 Nectar points by 14 February.
James Moir, managing director at Nectar, said: “Partnering with British Airways allows us to provide another exciting way to reward our Nectar customers. Although the past year has been uncertain, it’s important to have something to look forward to. We are delighted to offer customers the chance to turn their points into some incredible future travel experiences via Avios and for the first time, Avios can be turned into Nectar points so customers can make the most out of their everyday spending.”
