Nectar bonuses: 6x bonus at eBay, 625 Avios via Nectar from Esso

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If your Nectar account is linked to your eBay account, and you are logged in, you should see an offer for 6x bonus points (for a total of 7x points) on purchases made by midday on Sunday 18th.

You should see a banner for the offer half way down the eBay home page. It is also part of the rotating banner at the top of the page. You must click ‘Activate’ to register.

The base earning rate at eBay is 1 Nectar point (0.625 Avios) per £1 spent. With this offer, you would receive 7 Nectar points (4.38 Avios) per £1 spent.

There is a £10 minimum spend required. There is a cap of 300 base Nectar points per item – so 2,100 points in total with this offer – and the usual eBay rules on excluded categories apply.

The eBay home page is here. You can find out more about the Nectar partnership, and link your card, on this special eBay page.

Earn 625 Avios with one Esso visit

There is also an Esso offer showing on my Nectar app. I don’t know how widespread it is.

If you have this, you must opt-in via the Nectar website or app.

It is a simple and lucrative offer. Fill up with 20 litres of fuel at any Esso petrol station and you will receive 1,000 bonus Nectar points. These convert into 625 Avios.

Irrespective of whether Esso fuel is the cheapest in your area or not, getting 625 Avios for a spend of around £25 is a good deal.

The deal runs to 28th April.

    No sign of the 625 points Esso offer on the Nectar app – just the 3x points for buying premium fuel.

  • Russ says:

    C’mon Amex when are you going to add Hyatt as a transfer partner? We’re fed up of waiting. Take our money, TAKE OUR MONEY!!!

  • Keely says:

    Can anyone confirm please if spend at Sainsbury’s petrol station counts for spend towards the CC bonus ? Doesn’t seem to be excluded in the t&cs but does exclude Sainsbury’s ‘services’….

  • Adam M says:

    I only have 1 offer on my nectar app. Not any from Sainsbury’s at all which is strange. There is normally loads…very strange.

    • Ryan says:

      I have zero Sainsbury’s offers, first time I’ve seen this

      • peter says:

        Same, I thought they were delaying it because they wanted to avoid Wednesday of being a day when you can redeem offers from previous week as well as the new ones.. but on Thursday nothing came. I wonder if it’s anything to do with me just burning Avios, as most of my recent shopping is £25.60, £25 paid in Nectar and £0.60 by card.. no Nectar collected because the sale was below £1 🙂 And maybe no offers because of that too!
