Use the Daily Mail Rewards Club to collect free Nectar Points every day with the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday.
Back since August 2017, you’ve been able to collect Nectar points with Mail Rewards. It’s one of the most generous ways to claim more loyalty points each week.
We take a look at how the reward scheme works and how you can maximise the benefits.
How does the Daily Mail Rewards Club work?
You may have never noticed, but there are unique numbers printed on the bottom of your Mail newspaper.
These little numbers allow you to earn Nectar points – every single day!
You’re able to collect up to 250 Nectar points every month, which add up over the year.
It’s straightforward to do – grab your code and head to the MyMail site. Here, you’re able to enter your unique number.
How do I claim free Nectar Points?
You need to create a Mail account or sign in first.
To collect the Daily Mail rewards, you need to link your Nectar account (this is very similar to when you collect Nectar points every time you shop on eBay or with Argos).
You will need to log in on the Nectar website using your Nectar card number and the password you usually use to check your Nectar account online. If you don’t have an online account, you’re able to set up a Nectar card number via the MyMail site.
Start earning Mail rewards
Then you’re in and can start earning points.
Just pop the unique number into the top of the website each day, and that’s it!
You don’t need to redeem the codes the same day you buy the paper. You’ve got until midnight four days from the date it was published. So, if you bought the paper on Saturday, you’ve got until midnight Wednesday to enter the code.
Where are the Daily Mail Rewards Club unique numbers?
The Daily Mail Rewards Club unique numbers are pretty easy to find when you realise.
Look on the back page where the sport is, and you will see a date and code printed at the bottom right-hand corner of the paper.
It’s the 12 digit code you need to enter every day online at MyMail.
I still can’t find a unique number
Sometimes things don’t work out like they’re supposed to.
Perhaps the back page has been ripped, and some of the numbers are missing.
Or, maybe you’ve accidentally split your coffee over the paper, and you can’t read it.
Worse still, someone else could have used the unique code before you, and you can’t use it again!
Missing number system
If that’s the case, you’re able to use the online MyMail missing number system here.
To use the system, you need to have the paper and all supplements to hand as they will ask you a question about the content on one of the pages.
The questions aren’t hard and could be something like who advertises on a certain page of You magazine or to find a word on a page.
Put in the date of the paper (it has to have been from the last 5 days) and the reason you don’t have a unique number. Choose the right answer when asked, and your Nectar card points should be credited.
How many Nectar points do I get with Daily Mail?
You’re able to earn up to 250 Nectar points each month with the Daily Mail Rewards Club, depending on how you get the paper.
If you’re not a subscriber
You can earn a maximum of 50 Nectar card points each week.
With the papers on Monday – Friday you can collect 5 Nectar points.
On a Saturday, you can collect 10 points, and you can get 15 points with the Mail on Sunday.
The rewards should get added instantly.
You used to get a 30 points bonus for entering all 7 unique numbers from the back page in a week (so 80 Nectar points each week), but this has been changed. Instead, they will offer occasional incentives for non-subscribers.
If you’re a subscriber of The Ultimate Pack
You can collect double the Mail Rewards Nectar points as an Ultimate Pack subscriber.
With the papers on Monday to Friday, you can collect 10 Nectar card points.
On a Saturday, you can collect 20 Nectar points, and with the Mail on Sunday you can get 30 Nectar points.
Points will be credited to your linked account on the same day, and you can earn a maximum of 250 a month. On top of the daily points, you’ll also be given £50 of free Nectar Points if you subscribe before 31 December 2020.
If you’re a subscriber of The Digital Edition
You won’t get the codes on the back of the paper if you read the Mail online.
Instead, you’ll get 50 Nectar points by the 21st day of the following month, for as long as your subscription remains active. You won’t need to log anything daily on the Mail Rewards site. On top of the daily points, you’ll also be given £25 of free Nectar Points if you subscribe before 31 December 2020.
How do I spend my Daily Mail Nectar points?
As you collect your Mail rewards, they will go into your Nectar balance along with any other loyalty points you collect. You can then use them as you usually would.
There are also other ways to spend them directly with MyMail. At the moment, they are running an offer where you can redeem 1,000 points for a £5 M&S eGiftcard voucher (which you can use in store or online).
How much are Nectar points worth?
As the points add up, you’re able to convert them to cash.
By using offers and maximising the Daily Mail Rewards Club Nectar points, they add up a whole lot faster.
Nectar points are worth:
- 100 Nectar points are worth 50p
- 200 Nectar points are worth £1.00
- 300 Nectar points are worth £1.50

Double the rewards to £30
Over the course of a year, you’re able to earn 3,000 points with Mail Rewards, which is worth £15 in cash.
But, instead of using them willy-nilly, they are worth even more!
You can double their value using the next Nectar Double Up event as your points will be worth twice their value. Nectar Double Up usually runs before Christmas, meaning it’s a great time to stock up on some pressies.
Are there any other benefits to Mail Rewards?
As well as collecting free points, the MyMail site allows for a whole lot more.
You’re able to collect Nectar points in the Mail Shop.
The shop already has big deals and savings on books as well as products for the home that are usually printed in the Daily Mail paper. For each £1 you spend, you’re able to collect 6 points – that’s triple what you usually get from Sainsbury’s.
Offers and rewards
You’re able to get exclusive offers, promotions and can enter some awesome competitions, which can be things like free stuff, big discounts on holidays and experiences.
Earn Nectar Points from Mail Rewards without buying a paper
If you ever shop at Waitrose and have a MyWaitrose card, you may have a way to get the Mail Rewards Nectar points without buying the paper.
When you spend £10 in store (or £40 online), you can get a free newspaper every time.
You’re able to pick several different papers, including The Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday – meaning you can get a unique code for free.
So, whether you’re popping in to do a top-up shop for some milk, bread and maybe a bottle of wine, or you’re getting a week’s food shop, you can take advantage of their free newspaper offer.
Don’t forget; you can also get a free hot drink at Waitrose. Remember to take a reusable cup and grab a token after you’ve paid. Plus you can save money with their exclusive price offers for cardmembers.
Easily collect more Nectar points
Collecting Nectar points with the Daily Mail Rewards Club is just one way to boost your reward balance.
You don’t need to shop in Sainsbury’s to collect more points. See our guide about how to collect Nectar points without stepping foot in Sainsbury’s.
Also, if you do shop for food in Sainsbury’s, a great way to collect bonus Nectar card points is with the new Nectar app.
