Just one day after we published our annual guide to spending Nectar points, Caffe Nero returned as a redemption option.
Caffe Nero is, perhaps oddly, the best value Nectar redemption partner.
350 Nectar points will get you a voucher (in the form of a QR code, saved in the Nectar app, to be scanned in-store) for ANY hot or iced drink, of any size.
If you look at the price list on this website, you will see that it is virtually impossible to pay less than £1.75 for a drink, and qualifying drinks can cost as much as £3.65.
This means that you are certain to get more than the usual 0.5p per Nectar point and will get over 1p if you are a fan of Frappe Creme.
Based on getting a £3.65 drink for 350 Nectar points (which is the equivalent of 219 Avios) you’d be getting 1.66p per Avios, which is pretty much unbeatable.
The ba.com page to transfer your Avios points to Nectar is here.
You can learn more about this deal on the Caffe Nero page of the Nectar website here.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (May 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards. You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
