Want more Avios? Now’s the time to link your Nectar account

Did you know that you can link your Executive Club and Nectar accounts to enjoy a boost of Avios? Crack on with your usual Nectar spending, whether that means your weekly shop at Sainsbury’s or a splurge on eBay, and, before you know it, your Avios will have stacked up to help send you on that much-needed holiday.

Every 400 Nectar points you collect can be converted into 250 Avios, and you can either manually or automatically do the conversion. After the simplest and speediest way? Set up auto-convert and immediately pick up 50 bonus Avios.* 

Here are five Nectar partners for your local buys to easily stretch your Avios and inch you closer to your dream destinations


Tossing shiitake mushrooms and tofu in your Sainsbury’s trolley means you’re now collecting Avios. Picture it: the aromas of turmeric, the street sounds of Hanoi, the spluttering of steaming pho. Vietnam doesn’t have to be too much of a hazy bucket list dream when your Nectar card is linked to your Executive Club account. More of a Mediterranean mezze lover? Sainsbury’s spending stacks up either way. That tzatziki, that glug of olive oil – they’re coming together to help you on your next Grecian odyssey. Dip in.



You’re the best kind of armchair traveller when you convert your Nectar points to Avios. Sink into that squishy sofa you’ve just ordered from Argos because, believe it or not, it could be taking you places. Who needs a flying carpet when an Argos rug can get you collecting Avios faster than you can say abracadabra? That sea-salt candle in the living room? It’s bringing you closer to the warm and salty sea winds of the Portuguese coast.



Let your buys from Habitat kick off your wanderlust. The aromas of cedar or pine from a Habitat diffuser bring you moments closer to taking in lungfuls of crisp air while trekking through the Black Forest pines of Germany. That monstera plant you’ve finally repotted into a chic new Habitat ceramic pot? Yep, it could be helping you to you tick off your bucket list of biophilic destinations. Singapore anyone?



Tech can take you travelling, too, when it’s bought from eBay. A swanky coffee machine for single origin brews might inspire a trip to Costa Rica or Kenya. Digest that for a hot minute. And surfing the net needn’t limit you to digital realms, either. That second-hand Mac could help you on your backpacking trip to Australia – with a spin on the surfboard around Byron Bay, while you’re at it.


See Tickets

A theatre seat can also help you get on that plane seat faster with Nectar card spending from See Tickets. Watching & Juliet (ending 25 March 2023could help you collect Avios for a flight to Verona, say. Hear the ringing bells of a Romanesque church, and yes, see that balcony for yourself. There are plenty of exhibitions, live shows and comedy nights to get you on your way, too.
