Nectar and ebay are in bonus mode again. Just spend £15 or more at ebay from midday on 9 July until midday on 10 July 2021 and you will earn a massively boosted 6 Nectar points per £1 spent at eBay.
With a Nectar point convertible to 0.625 Avios, that’s approaching 4 Avios per £1. On a pure “Nectar as 0.5p cash” basis, it’s a 3% rebate on your spend.
How to claim
This offer should be available on your eBay home screen. You simply click on “activate now” on the promo banner, and you’ll receive instant confirmation that you’re signed up. You may also have been sent an email about the offer.
Alternatively, you should be able to activate the offer via your Nectar account on the Nectar website or app (you should be taken to the same confirmation screen as above).
There doesn’t seem to be much small print to this promotion, beyond the need to sign up and spend over £15 in accordance with the dates above. If you have a planned eBay spend, therefore, this window is probably as good as any time to do it.
Must I convert my Nectar points to Avios?
Finally, while as a travel website we do focus on the “Avios conversion” element to Nectar points (business class travel, even with BA, tends to be more glamorous than tinned beans), you should not necessarily assume that all Nectar points must be sent across to Avios.
