    Can you buy amazon, etc gift cards at Sainsbury’s using Nectar for payment?

    Not with Nectar, only with Sainsbury’s gift cards.

    What about Sainsbury nectar vouchers which seem similar to gift cards?

    Hi I’m aware of topgiftcards, hyperjar, jamdoughnut and workperks? But does anyone else know of other gift card sites that give a % back?! TIA

    Do any of these take American Express?

    Topgiftcards do but for many giftcards their cashback rates are low

    Workperks, topgiftcards, hyperjar do. There are some that will not accept credit cards period like Morrisons on workperks but I do curve/Barclays avios on that.

    @Rui Will try swippi thanks.

    Did swippi used to be good? Very poor %s compared to workperks and even hyperjar, both who give actual £ back not these v£. Or I’m I missing something?

    Swiipi used to be better (10% off, now only 7%). You DON’T use the cashback function. You deposit money, and it gives you an additional 7%. Then you go and buy the gift card.
    They used to have Amazon as well, but not any longer. I buy Sainsbury’s gift cards and then buy Amazon gift cards in store (also getting Nectar).

    Swiipi is a bit hit and miss for me – had an initial good experience and then thought lets try a big amount and lo and behold thats where the troubles began tried to withdraw the money back from my swipii my account as it just wasnt playing ball when trying to generate a retailer GC via their platform. Ended up having to claim a chargeback via Amex as their T&Cs claimed it should have been deposited back to my nominated account earlier.

    Funny enough, since they stopped allowing Amex to buy balance it seems to work much better. Never had any trouble in the last few months, after a few teething issues when I started using it (I reported some issues here back then).
