Amex Gold cardholders (and possibly Platinum too?) can now earn three bonus Membership Rewards Points for every £1 spent at Sainsbury’s, until 9 June 2021.

“From lunchbox fillers to your weekly shop, we wanted to reward
you whenever you use your American Express® Preferred Rewards
Gold Card for everyday essentials.

Save this exclusive Offer for Amex Gold Cardmembers and you’ll earn 3 additional Membership Rewards points for every £1 you spend at Sainsbury’s until 9 June 2021.”

If you transferred the bonus points to British Airways Avios and then across to Nectar, you would effectively be earning 4.8 bonus Nectar Points per £1 spent. That is on top of the 1.6 Nectar Points you could earn from the standard 1x Amex Membership Rewards Point, and the usual 1 Nectar Point per £1 you can earn direct with Nectar.

In total then, you’d be looking at earning 7.4 Nectar Points per £1 spent at Sainsbury’s.

As far as I can tell, this offer is available to all cardholders, although it might take a little while to show up on your offers. Note that you do need to save the offer on your card in order to benefit from it!


Three bonus Membership Rewards points will be awarded for every £1 GBP of eligible spent at Sainsbury’s, every time until 9 June 2021.
