If you’re not a Waitrose shopper, we’ve compared all supermarket loyalty programs here.
For example, Tesco has a Clubcard program that allows you to collect points every time you shop.
Shoppers receive one point for every £1 they spend in-store and online or one point for every £2 spent on fuel.
You need a minimum of 150 points to get any kind of voucher, worth £1.50 – or save them and 500 points will be worth £5, for example.
Or if you shop at Sainsbury’s, you’ll probably be familiar with Nectar’s loyalty program.
To get one Nectar point, you need to spend £1 at Sainsbury’s, or one Nectar point per liter of fuel purchased at Sainsbury’s gas stations.
One Nectar point is then worth 0.5p to spend, which means 100 will convert to 50p.
For a £40 store, you need to save 8,000 points to redeem for usage.
