Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club Ba- Nectar points exchange time?

  • Pointofview 36 posts

    Hi all, I read that when moving Avios from exec club to Nectar the conversion should happen instantly.
    Is this still the case? My accounts are linked and it’s not the first time I have moved points in either direction.
    I made the transaction last night and it’s not gone through as of yet.
    Should I call BA or do I call Nectar in this instance?

    Thank you

    I think I’ve realized what I have done. I moved some points on the 27th of November in the same direction and with the exchange i did yesterday it would have put me over the monthly calendar allowable total.
    The points have left my executive account as it let me do the exchange but they have not been put into my Nectar account yet.
    Does anyone have any experience of what happens next or if I have to call BA?

    Thank you

    I’m surprised they still have the monthly limit considering how poor the exchange rate is now.

    I’ve no experience here but personally I’d call BA.

    The one I did on the 27th of November Avios-Nectar happened instantly.

    Looks like they did instant for a few weeks but then reverted back to the delay, some comments on article suggest same too https://www.headforpoints.com/2022/11/16/avios-to-nectar-transfers-are-now-instant-again-albeit-at-the-new-lower-rate/

    Can you confirm if it is 12 days or 12 working days?

    I transferred from BA to nectar on 10th DEC. Only received the nectar points this morning (22nd DEC). So 12 calendar days. But on nectar activity statement, it shows the points are added on the 10th.
