Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

One hour only: get 25 Nectar points (15 Avios) per £1 spent at eBay

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.

get 25 Nectar points per £1 spent at eBay

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.

PS. If you don’t have the Nectar American Express credit card, take a look at our review here.

    “Previous versions of this offer have been open to everyone.”
    I have never had this offer! I check my Nectar app repeatedly each time it is mentioned and I am always just shown the 1 point/£ at eBay rate.

    • AJA says:

      I have it this time. I didn’t receive the offer last time around when it was 50x per £.

      I also have an offer to:

      Bag 3x points whenever you spend £5 or more on eBay; then unlock 3x points every time you fill up with a minimum of 5L fuel or spend £5 or more in-store at Esso*. Plus, you can continue to load up on points each time you make a qualifying transaction at eBay or Esso until 17 June.

      I wonder if I could double up and earn both sets of points on the same purchase at eBay?

      The ’50 per £1′ one was openly promoted on the eBay home page!

    • TimM says:

      Hey, my 25x eBay offer just came through!

  • Gordon says:

    Saw Hyatt bonus points discount on OMAAT 10pm last night…. so Indulged.

  • Gordon says:

    EBay offer saved. But I will probably forget so best set an alarm as the timeframe is tight.

  • Mike says:

    Another BREXIT freedom – pint glasses will be adorned with a Crown for the first time in nearly 20 years after Ministers axed EU rules banning the patriotic symbol. (More Freedom From EU tyranny)

    • Gordon says:

      The Bureaucrats are slowly loosing their grip. Long live her majesty….

    • Chris says:

      99% of pint glasses are now branded, so thereby taking this news to less than pointless rather than merely pointless!

      • lumma says:

        They still need to be marked with the pint symbol for them to be legal whether they’re branded or not

    • Lady London says:

      Has the government got nothing better to do?

      • Gordon says:

        Well they have time on their hands now they can’t throw a party.

    • Rob says:

      I think we all agree that the permanent 4% drop in British GDP was a small price to pay for this ….

      • JDB says:

        That’s all happened so we will unfortunately have to live with that. Worse is to come, with at least close to double digit inflation, little if any growth and rising interest rates, probably further £ falls etc. Most people here (plus the Chancellor) sound too young to remember high inflation/stagflation, 15% mortgage rates etc. such that neither mindsets nor SIPPs/ISAs have been adjusted or planned with the changed environment in mind. Nectar points and pint glass markings will be the least of their worries.

        • Mike says:

          With my public sector job, followed by a non contributory pension with a mid 50,s compulsory retirement and 100% off set mortgage – a successful BREXIT, nectar / avois points and pint glass markings are the things that interest me

        • Lady London says:

          JDB unfortunately you and I seem to agree 🙂 .

          The shock in finance companies when I have said the same as you just said, in the past 2 years has really been surprising.

    • ChrisC says:

      There was NO such rule banning the crown on glasses.

      Just as there wasn’t a rule banning the UK from having blue passports.

      No need to tell porkies.
