From today, British Gas customers will be able to collect Nectar points as the UK's leading energy supplier joins forces with the country's biggest loyalty programme.
The new partnership means that over 12 million British Gas customers can now benefit from the full range of Nectar rewards ranging from money off at Sainsbury's and Homebase to Eurostar and Vue cinema tickets.
British Gas customers will be able to collect Nectar points for their Energy or Maintenance and Repair accounts (for example; gas, electricity, Kitchen Appliance Cover, HomeCare 100TM or Plumbing and Drains Cover) as well as collect bonus points for taking out additional products and services. British Gas will continue to add new ways to collect bonus points and run special promotions throughout the year.
Phil Bentley, Managing Director, British Gas comments, "More than 12 million customers count on British Gas to look after their world every day and we don't take that loyalty for granted. As a way of saying thank you and rewarding that loyalty
we've joined Nectar. Nectar's reach will help our customers to benefit from the points they can collect using our services and those of the other great partners in the programme."
Jan-Pieter Lips, Managing Director, Nectar, said: "This is an incredibly important and exciting milestone for Nectar. We're delighted to welcome British Gas on board enabling us to offer even more ways to collect points. "
