If you took part in the Avios / Nectar launch promotion, take a look at your British Airways Executive Club account.
Avios was offering a bonus of 500 points if you transferred 1,600 Nectar points into Avios. These have now arrived, at least for me.
You will NOT receive the bonus if you moved 1,000 Avios to Nectar and immediately moved them back again. I’m surprised to see that BA’s IT was up to spotting that, but it did.
Triggering this bonus also triggered double base Nectar points on your shopping at Sainsbury’s up to 19th April. These points are not meant to arrive until 28 days after the end of the offer, so you should expect them in mid May.
If you are not up to speed with the new Avios / Nectar partnership, we have created a new HfP category for the articles. You can see them all by clicking here or by selecting ‘Sainsbury’s and Nectar’ from the categories menu which appears on every article page in the right-hand sidebar on the desktop site.
Core reference articles include:
Online transfers between Avios and Nectar remain suspended whilst site security, including 2FA, is beefed up.
