Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 2,500 Avios for 0.8p each with a Daily Mail digital subscription

Earlier this week we told you that the Daily Mail is ending its relationship with Nectar.

You will no longer be able to collect points by submitting codes from printed copies of the newspaper as of 14th September. Anyone with a digital or printed subscription can continue to collect until the end of November.

It seems that the Mail has a few Nectar points to use up, because it has launched a decent subscription offer.

Daily Mail subscription offer

For £20, you will receive a one year digital subscription to the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, plus 4,000 Nectar points.

4,000 Nectar points converts into 2,500 Avios, so you are getting 2,500 Avios for £20.

(If you drink Caffe Nero coffee, you’re getting 11 drinks @ 350 points each for £20!)

The only snag is that your subscription will auto-renew after one year at the full price of £120. You will need to cancel it before that point, and looking at the T&C this is only possible by telephone. It could be a little expensive if you forget.

Daily Mail Nectar offer

This offer is definitely not targeted. If you go to you will see it come up.

Anyone who remembers the Mail subscription deal of a couple of years ago which was targeted – and led to everyone who wasn’t targeted getting their subscription cancelled – can rest easy.

In a bad piece of UX, you need to input your credit card details before you see the screenshot above which confirms the offer. You can still back out at this point though.
