Lumiappaday #219: Nectar demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900

| June 21, 2012 | Reply

Nectar is a point system in the UK whereby you get points when you purchase things at different shops. These points translate to monetary value which you can redeem.

This app makes it easy to keep track of just how many points you have, what offers are available (to acquire more points than normal or spend them) and what stores take nectar card. I’ve never checked out how many points I had before so this was quite useful for me. I only ever use my Nectar card in Sainsbury’s and did not know that i could have been redeeming my points at many more shops (only Sainsbury’s peeps ask for it :/ )

It would be nice if there was a scannable barcode so I did not need to use my card to collect the points – just the phone. But I think the Nectar card requires swiping along that mag strip.
