That means Nectar shoppers will be able to save money on a range of essential and other food items across Sainsbury’s stores.

The items that have been cut include food, health, beauty, beer, wine, home appliances, baby and pet products.

For the first time, shoppers will receive discounts on dairy products and bread.

Customers can enjoy up to 50% off select items such as cheese, milk and bread (see below for more).

In April, the supermarket offered discounts on 300 branded items to Nectar card users.

Nectar customers will still have personalized offers when they use Smartshop with your Nectar Price.

The Nectar Rate Program mimics Tesco’s Clubcard Rate by offering a discount to anyone who scans their card at checkout.

Shoppers will be able to cut costs on items including:

  • Cathedral City Mature Cheese 350g – usually £4.75 or £2.75 for Nectar cardholders
  • Lurpak Butter Spread 500g – usually £5, or £3.25 for Nectar cardholders
  • Yeo Valley semi-skimmed milk – usually £2 or £1 for Nectar cardholders
  • Warburtons sliced ​​plain bread – usually £1.85 or £1 for Nectar cardholders

How does the price of nectar work?

Customers shopping at Sainsbury’s supermarkets or online now enjoy discounts on hundreds of original items, including household products, pet food and confectionery, with Nectar Prices.

The discount is automatically applied to their bill when the shopper uses the app or their Nectar card at checkout.

Those without a Nectar card can still easily access Nectar Prices by downloading the app.

Members can also continue to enjoy individual discounts of up to 30% on their favorite items when they use the SmartShop app to scan their items in the store.

Every week, customers will find personalized lower prices on certain items with Your Nectar Price.

Card members also continue to earn one Nectar point for every £1 spent at Sainsbury’s when shopping at a number of other stores including Esso, Asos, eBay, Expedia, Habitat and Argos.

These points can then be converted into vouchers to spend in-store and online.

We’ve listed over 100 items that are already discounted for Nectar card holders.
