They can try to wean me off, but I’ll be one step ahead of them Thankfully I also have Waitrose and Lidl within walking distance so it’s easy enough.
I’ve tried ‘boycotting’ them in the poor offer weeks by using my girlfriends nectar card, but it doesn’t seem to make a blind bit of difference. Last week the offers were derisory and I shopped as normal, yet today they want to shower me with points!

Also, if you’re buying something you’ve never bought before, only buy 1 of the item, as it seems the following week they’ll offer you bonus points on said item.

Yeah, this is a bit ridiculous when it's something like a roll of bin bags. I'm not producing that much rubbish!

How long has it been taking for Avios -> Nectar transfers? Did one last week and they're still not through.

Noticed that today when I got 5 points instead of 10. Then read the bit about it.
Not going out of my way at weekends now to acquire the papers for the codes.

Anyway, after 2 or 3 weeks of 60-80 points, got 900+ this week, mostly on items I buy, and those items were on the shelves for a change. A couple had the "my Nectar prices" as well.

That's the standard amount Monday to Friday. You get 10 points for a Saturday paper and 15 points for the Sunday paper.

It's 5 points every day now.
Some mention of a 20 points bonus that could be if you enter 7 codes?

It does take a while. Something like 10 working days.

Thanks, I didn't know that. I guess the DM has realised it is paying out too many NP. The website does say if you have a subscription to the physical paper everyday the 35NP will be doubled so you can get a maximum of 70NP. As I don't that means I won't be going out of my way to get the paper. Oh well.

I get the Mail if I spend Ł10 in Waitrose, it's really not worth it otherwise, though there was a survey a few weeks ago which provided a few extra points, or will if they ever get credited. From the number of times I get a "code already used" it would appear some dedicated points collectors have another method.

Latest things on my app are the chance to win one of 350 prizes from 2500 to 50k Avios if you auto-convert at least 400 Nectar points to Avios between Feb and May.

Also 2x points on your shopping until the 28th Feb when you sign up to auto-convert (May have to keep this in place for at least a further 28 days?)

I usually convert once a month anyway, so it's no problem for me (although this might be a weekly conversion, and subject to some limits).

my guess is the 1st Offer is informing of the prize draw, but you have to go to the Double Points offer to do the conversion

also, the terms say min 400 a month, but isnt the auto conversion only weekly at a min of 400??
- I didn't get an option to only move an amount on monthly basis

I'm back to my usual 10 or 20 points, 70-80 total, this week.
Do have an offer for 3x points in store, which I won't use as it expires on Thursday and my next offers come in on Friday. Expecting 70 points total once again, and the following week.
