The Daily Mail has been emailing selected members of its MyMail website with a generous subscription offer.
You will receive 30,000 Nectar points (worth 18,750 Avios) when you subscribe to ‘The Ultimate Pack’ of the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday for just two months.
If you are not a fan of the Mail, don’t worry. You do not receive physical newspapers. You receive a book of vouchers in the post which can be redeemed daily at your local newsagent – or binned if you prefer.
The price is £26.80 per month, so £53.60 in total. The Nectar points will arrive within “25 days of renewing the second month subscription“.
This is, clearly, a very good deal at £53.60 for 18,750 Avios. The only reason I am not pushing it harder is that the offer is not openly showing on the MyMail website. You need this link from the email.
On the other hand, the T&Cs in the email do not say that it is only open to the recipient:
“Offer available to new subscribers taking out a subscription between 12.02.21 and 28.02.21. UK residents aged 18+. To collect £150 worth of Nectar points, buy a subscription to The Ultimate Pack, paying for a minimum of two consecutive months, price £26.80 pcm. £150 worth of Nectar points will be credited per person, per one subscription only, within 25 days of renewing the second month subscription. Subscription will auto renew after the expiry of the first calendar month at a cost of £26.80.”
(EDIT: To add to the confusion, it seems that the confirmation page you see is an old one and shows a different set of terms which mention a three month minimum. Caveat emptor.)
If you want to sign-up to see if you receive the points, the link is here.
You should create a MyMail account and link it to your Nectar account before signing up.
For absolutely clarity, do not sign-up for this unless you are prepared to accept some risk that you will not receive the points because you did not receive the original email.
As a no-risk alternative, you may want to register with MyMail, link your account to your Nectar account, and wait to see if you are targetted for a similar offer in the future.
