Buy the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday to access the Mail Rewards club which gives you the ability to collect free Nectar Points every day of the week.
How does Mail Rewards work?
You may have never noticed, but there is a unique number printed on the bottom of your Mail newspaper.
These little numbers allow you to collect bonus Nectar points – every single day!
You’re able to collect up to 80 Nectar points every week, 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 loyalty points, you need to link your Nectar account (this is very similar to when you collect Nectar points on eBay).
You will need to log in to your Nectar account 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 this up via the MyMail site.
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 do it the same day as the paper you get 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 is the unique number?
The unique number is pretty easy to spot 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.
I 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 code is missing.
Or, maybe you’ve accidentally dropped the paper in a puddle, 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!
If that’s the case, you’re able to use the missing number system here.
Pick the date of the paper and the reason you don’t have a unique number. You will need to have the paper and supplements to hand as they will ask you a question about the content on one of the pages. Choose the right answer, and your Nectar points should be credited.
How many points can you earn?
You can earn a maximum of 80 Nectar points each week.
With papers Monday – Friday you can collect 5 Nectar points.
On a Saturday, you can collect 10 Nectar points, and on a Sunday you can get 15 Nectar points.
As a bonus, you get 30 points as a reward for entering seven newspaper numbers in a week (Saturday – Friday).
Points should get added instantly.
Are there any other benefits to Mail Rewards?
As well as collecting free Nectar 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.
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.
If you ever shop at Waitrose and have a MyWaitrose card, you may have a way to get the Nectar points without spending any money.
When you spend £10 in store (or £60 online), you can get a free newspaper.
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.
While you may not pop in every day to spend £10, it may tempt you to do a top-up shop from time to time.
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.
