How would you like to collect Nectar points just for reading a newspaper? Then the Daily Mail rewards club will be just up your street. Take a look at everything you need to know about joining, claiming and spending your points.
Loyalty points are a great way of earning extra with little effort. The only problem I find is remembering to spend them!
One of the biggest schemes to offer loyalty points is Nectar. Established back in 2002 by a company called Loyalty Management Group, the Nectar scheme has grown and is now one of the most popular in the UK with over 18 million customers. So, why not boost the number of points you collect with the Daily Mail Rewards Club?
What is the Daily Mail Rewards Club?
Back in 2017, the ever-expanding Nectar teamed up with the Daily Mail Rewards Club (also known as MyMail Rewards) to offer you a chance to earn extra Nectar points. Every time you purchase a Dail Mail newspaper, you’ll earn points, which are then added to your Nectar account. These points can then be spent in a variety of places.
How does Mail Rewards work?
To earn your points, you will need to link your Nectar card to your MyMail account (see below). Once this is done, you’re ready to role.
Each Daily Mail newspaper will have a unique code which you will need to add to your MyMail account.
Signing up to MyMail Rewards
Joining will take you just a few minutes. Head over to Join MyMail.
You will need to share the following details:
- Date of birth
- Email address
- Create a password
- Home address
- Telephone number
- Contact preferences with regards to special offers
Once completed, you’ll receive a welcome email
Then, your next step is to link your MyMail account to your Nectar card.
If you already have a Nectar card account, just select ‘Yes’. You will then be redirected to your Nectar account, where you will need to enter your card number and password.
If not, once again you will be sent to the Nectar site, where you can create a new account. It will only take a couple of minutes to register.
Where can I find Mail Rewards the unique codes?
Once you’re all set-up, it’s time to start collecting your points by entering the unique codes. The codes are found on the back page of any Daily Mail newspaper – usually located in the bottom right. The code you need to enter will be 12 digits long. In the paper, the actual codes will appear to be 15 digits – however, you can ignore the last 3.
Can you find unique codes with a digital subscription?
You can subscribe to the Daily Mail digital version for £10.99 per month. A copy of the paper will be delivered to the Mail Plus app on your tablet or smartphone each day. However, no codes for the Nectar points bonus are included in this subscription… so you will have to stick with the old fashioned newspapers.
Where do I enter my code?
Just log into your MyMail account. At the top of the page, you will see – Enter Unique Number.
Just add your code to the box.
It’s important to note that you only have three days to enter your code. After that, they expire and will no longer be valid.
Do the codes expire?
You have four days to enter the unique number. It will expire on the fourth day following the paper’s publication date.
How many Nectar points can I collect from Mail Rewards?
- You will earn 5 points for each unique code you enter from any Monday to Friday newspaper.
- For a Saturday paper, you will receive 10 points.
- On a Sunday, you will earn 15 points.
- If you enter 5 codes in a week, you will receive 30 bonus points.
In total, you can receive a maximum of 80 points per week.
So, how much can you earn?
If you collect 80 points per week, you could potentially earn around 4,160 points per year. But how much is that worth in real money?
Nectar points are worth:
- 1 Nectar point = 0.5p
- 2 Nectar points = 1p
- 100 Nectar points = 50p
- 500 Nectar points = £2.50
- 1000 Nectar points = £5.00
So, you could be looking at just over £20 per year. But that’s not all. Sainsbury’s run a Double Up event each year where your points will be worth twice their value. That means you could earn over £40 just from reading the paper.
Usually, the Double Up event is held around the end of October and the beginning of November. Find out when the next Double Up event is due.
Other MyMail benefits
Not only can you earn Nectar points, but MyMail offers exclusive benefits such as a free coffee at selected establishments or 20% off a voucher at your favourite high street store. Plus, there are chances to enter competitions.
There is even a Mail shop, which offers deals on:
A lot of these items are featured in their newspaper, so if there’s something that takes your fancy whilst you’re flicking through the paper, enjoying your tea, it could be in the shop. Plus, you’ll even earn 2 Nectar points for every £1 you spend at the Mail shop.
Is it worth joining Mail Rewards?
Whether you’re looking for a bargain, want to enter competitions, or just fancy earning a load of free Nectar points, then yes – especially if you’re a regular reader of the Daily Mail. And if you don’t want to spend your points at Sainsbury’s, there are plenty of other places to redeem Nectar points. For example:
- Vue – 500 points for £2.50
- Argos – 500 points for £2.50
- eBay – 500 points for £2.50
- Sky Store – exchange points for movies
And don’t forget, there are plenty of other ways you can earn Nectar points to combine with the Daily Mail Rewards scheme. You can link your card to your eBay and ASOS accounts to gain extra points when you shop at these stores. And, of course, Sainsbury’s and Esso are two other large retailers that accept the Nectar card. Why not take a look at my full list of other ways to earn Nectar points?
