About Us

Nectar is the UK's largest loyalty programme. Over 19 million collectors earn Nectar points when shopping for groceries, doing DIY, booking a holiday, paying household bills, buying petrol and even getting their car serviced. Collectors also earn Nectar points every time they shop online via nectar.com at over 500 leading online retailers.

Since Nectar's launch in 2002, over £1.5 billion of rewards have been spent by our collectors. Rewards include money off shopping, travel, eating out, and general merchandise.

Nectar is owned by Aimia, a global leader in loyalty management.
