i'd seen it and didn't realise what it was - i thought it was the 'buy & eat lots of fruit and veg game' that they'd been pushing before. we do that anyway, as it happens.

like a lot of families, we've acquired more loyalty scheme memberships than we can count. focusing does seem to be a good idea as it can lead to points balances that are more substantial/useful.

I didn't get the "Juicy Points Boost" last week. Tried updating app, deleting and reinstalling. Still nothing when I updated my weekly offers yesterday.

But today it was there, 500 points awarded.

According to Rob at Head for Points, the avios bonuses have landed. Not checked mine.
The double points at Sainsbury that were also part of the promotion run until 19 April and will be added after that.

On a related, if you choose the right card option, there are 10,000 nectar (=£50) if you sign up for the Sainsburys MasterCard and have total spend £400 at Sainsbury or Argos in first 8 weeks.

Yep, looks like my 500 bonus Avios were credited yesterday.

That credit card can be found here:
https://www.sainsburysbank.co.uk/credit ... tar-reward

Think I've considered this offer before; in practice I'd need to buy £400 of instore gift cards for it to work for me. That's quite a lot and would also forgo the min 5% discount that I usually receive on Sainsbury's shopping, so this reduces the max benefit to just £30.
10,000 bonus Nectar points conditions
1. This offer is only available when you take out a new Sainsbury’s Bank Nectar Credit Card.
2. You’ll get 10,000 points if you use your card to spend a total of £400 or more at Sainsbury’s, Argos, Habitat or Tu Clothing during the 2 months after your account is opened.
3. Points will be added to your Nectar account within 60 days of the end of the offer period.
4. This offer can’t be used in conjunction with any other introductory points offer.
5. You need to add your Nectar card number to your application.
6. Spend at Argos eBay stores, Argos Clearance stores, Argos For Business, Argos Spares, Argos Financial Services, Sainsbury’s Bank, Sainsbury’s Energy, Sainsbury’s Cafes, Sainsbury’s e-Gift Cards and any other Sainsbury’s services is excluded.
7. You won’t get any points if you go over your credit limit or don’t pay at least the minimum payment on each statement by its due date.
8. Sainsbury's Supermarkets Ltd award the points from this offer. No cash alternative is available.
9. Sainsbury’s Bank reserve the right to change or cancel this offer without notice.

How do you get 5% discount on Sainsbury's shopping?

i was going to ask the same question.. that's a benefit not to miss out on, assuming Sainsbury's is convenient enough and offers decent value.

i've looked at the various Nectar-generating credit cards too. i've consistently stuck with Amex Cashback.

have you folks moved your Avios back to Nectar? i think i'll just keep them all in Nectar. i don't think i'm generating Avios from anywhere nowadays, although i have a BA Executive Club card from way back.
