Get 2,000 Nectar points (1,250 Avios) with a £30 office supplies spend
Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.
Office supplies group Viking is currently running a TARGETTED offer for people who have not previously linked their Nectar and Viking accounts.
To see if you are targetted, you need to open the Nectar app – or log in online – and see if you have this under ‘Partner Offers’:
Viking is offering 2,000 bonus Nectar points with your first purchase of £30 + VAT after you add your Nectar number to your Viking account
With the exchange rate between Nectar and Avios of 1 : 0.625, these 2,000 Nectar points are worth 1,250 Avios. This is a decent return on £30 + VAT of spending.
As an office supplies group, Viking is an obvious place to pick up your next printer cartridge or similar. It also has a lot of ‘office use but usable domestically’ products, such as coffee capsules and bulk supplies of bottled water.
You need to register your Nectar account and make your £30 + VAT purchase by 20th March.
Viking also has discount codes
There are two other Viking offers at the moment:
- you save 10% on your first order worth £60 + VAT with code VGB-10NEWUK if you are a business customer
- you can get a £5 discount code off your next order of £49 + VAT by signing up for the Viking newsletter if you are a non-business customer
These offers cannot be combined. It isn’t clear if they combine with the ‘2,000 Nectar points’ offer as this does not require a promo code to be added.
How many Nectar points do I earn at Viking?
As we covered in our guide to earning Nectar points, you earn 2 Nectar points (1.25 Avios) for every £1 of ex-VAT spend.
This doubles to 4 Nectar points per £1 on all own-brand products.
There are also bonus point offers which would combine with the Nectar offer and money-off deals above. Take a look here.
The current offers include deals on non-office products such as coffee, bottled water and toilet paper!
Remember that you need to link your Viking and Nectar accounts, and spend £30 + VAT, by 20th March to receive the 2,000 bonus Nectar points. Check that you are targetted by looking in the Nectar app or logging into the Nectar website before ordering.
