Can't remember where I saw it...
On the nectar app, an email, on BA site?

Can't seem to find it again and I'm sure I didn't dream it 😂
it is also on the BA Rewards app.

Re the Esso 99 points.

My wife used live chat, no problem 99 points credited in 2 minutes.

I used live chat:
Fob off 1: You must wait 28 days (its already 25 days past the 28 day waiting period).
Fob off 2: OK, Please provide a screen shot of the app inviting you to enter the competition. (Please see attached the email from esso confirming entry).
Fob off 3: OK, Only exxon can credit the points, please contact [email protected] [sic] (no such address, but I contacted c[email protected] who did not reply.)
Fob off 4: Sorry, only Exxon can credit points.

Give up. HUACA tomorrow.

I just did this today and points in my account a few minutes after the live chat.

I tried calling nectar and got all that, did live chat the next day and got the points in 2 minutes. Try again tomorrow, different agent different result.

Difficult to try around here as it appears the Nectar team never discuss offers with the supply chain team. Roughly 50% of my bonus points are wasted through a lack of shelf stock over multiple visits at both the super and local stores.

As reported on Head for Points, it is now possible to make an online transfer from Avios back to Nectar. This went live this morning.
Unfortunately, BA's IT is not up to the task and keeps rejecting a valid date of birth locking people out of their accounts.

Quiz was 3 questions, T&C's don't state any minimum amount to spend / litres to fillup at Esso, so looks like it's an easy 1,000 points for a quick fill up.
Has anyone had the points from this promotion yet?

The T&Cs are a bit sketchy on when point would be awarded. The promotion closed on the 21st July and the draw for the Ł600 voucher is in the first week of Aug. Just wondering how long I should wait before firing up the live chat to ask for the points.

I tend to shop with Sainsbury’s using the app and have a delivery pass. So good as you can so easily just find the offers and point bonuses and add to your basket. Usually all gets delivered
