The travel points highlight of Black Friday 2021 was, oddly enough, not on a travel website.
The best deal came from eBay. For one hour, it offered 50 Nectar points (31 Avios) for every £1 you spent on the site. As you can imagine, some people did very nicely indeed. Some even bought items and then relisted them when the next discounted listings promotion came along.
On Wednesday 1st June, eBay is bringing back a more modest version of this offer.
Between noon and 1pm on 1st June, you will receive 25 Nectar points (15 Avios) for every £1 spent.
There are NO category restrictions, it seems, apart from the standard rules over gift cards etc.
You must spend £15+ and you only receive the bonus on the purchase of one ‘Buy It Now’ item. You are capped at 7,500 Nectar points (a £300 purchase) which would get you 4,687 Avios.
Is this offer targetted?
It’s not clear if the deal is targetted. Previous versions of this offer have been open to everyone. It is showing in the Nectar app but of course this could be targetted.
If you cannot see it in the Nectar app you will need to wait and see if there is any wider publicity next week.
You will need to activate the offer before buying – we will remind you on Wednesday.
You can find out more about the Nectar partnership, and link your Nectar card to your eBay account, on this special eBay page.
