Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get up to 5x Nectar points (= 5x Avios) with office supplies from Viking

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

There is a special Nectar offer running with office supplies group Viking until 11th September.

You MUST opt in to this offer by clicking the link on this page of the Viking website.

Once registered, you will earn 2x, 3x or even 5x the usual amount of Nectar points, depending on the value of your order:

Get up to 5x Nectar points (= 5x Avios) with office supplies from Viking
  • Spend over £50 for 2x points – 4 Nectar points (2.5 Avios) per £1 spend
  • Spend over £100 for 3x points – 6 Nectar points (3.75 Avios) per £1 spend
  • Spend over £300 for 5x points – 10 Nectar points (6.25 Avios) per £1 spend

Points are based on the ex-VAT price of whatever you buy and delivery charges are excluded. Postage stamps are excluded.

There is also a new customer bonus. As you can see here, Viking is offering 1,000 bonus Nectar points with your first purchase of £49 + VAT after you add your Nectar number to your Viking account. This is worth an extra 625 Avios on your order.

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.

There are also regular bonus point offers. Take a look here.

Don’t forget to link your Nectar account to your Viking account before ordering. The instructions are here.

    I still have around 10 years’ worth of printer paper from Viking from their last Avios offer. I feel, after a couple of years, I have chipped away the top of the iceberg sitting on the floor of my office :-). Heck, I have even given reams away as unexpected presents but it doesn’t seem to make any difference.

  • John Acca says:

    The headline “Get up to 5x Nectar points (= 5x Avios)…” is a bit misleading when read straight like that.

    You may want to change it up, reflecting the 0.625 conversion rate (Nectar to Avios)
