What is Nectar?

Nectar is a popular reward card scheme used by stores such as Sainsbury's, Argos, ESSO, Homebase, eBay, and many more. Simply swipe your card every time you make a purchase at one of the participating stores, and points get added to your account. These points can be converted into cash, vouchers, or purchases. 


How To get a Nectar Card

You can apply for a Nectar card free of charge, online at, or pick one up in participating stores. If you do pick one up in-store, you can use it straight away, then register it when you get home, and you'll still get the points you accumulated that day.

A Nectar card (and key fob) will be sent out in the post within 10 days.
