News in brief:
Get 4,375 Avios with Sainsbury’s Bank pet insurance
Some users of the Nectar app are getting a targetted offer of 7,000 Nectar points for taking out pet insurance.
7,000 Nectar points converts, of course, into 4,375 Avios.
Policies are relatively cheap if you only have something small like a rabbit – under £10 per month. The points are promised after 60 days, although with previous pet insurance offers they have posted more quickly. You can cancel your policy at any time without penalty
As an extra benefit, you will earn double Nectar base points on all of your Sainsbury’s shopping for as long as you keep your policy.
The Sainsbury’s Bank pet insurance home page is here. You need to use code PET4AP when getting a quote, although you will only receive the 7,000 Nectar points if the offer is showing in your Nectar app. No closing date is given for the offer.
Thanks to Nick for this.
