Press release: for immediate release

Nov 28, 2023

The multi-year renewal of the 18-year relationship maximises value for Nectar and American Express Cardmembers


London UK, 28th November 2023: Nectar360, which owns and operates Nectar, the UK’s largest loyalty coalition programme, today announces the renewal of its longstanding co-branded credit card partnership with American Express.


American Express is the largest global payments network and one of Nectar’s most established partners, having launched their co-branded American Express® Nectar Credit Card in 2005.


American Express Cardmembers represent some of the most engaged Nectar users, collecting 14x more points than average. The Nectar coalition includes partners such as Sainsbury’s, Argos, British Airways, eBay, and Esso. American Express Nectar Credit Cardmembers earn points as they spend and are able to supercharge their points when they spend on these Nectar-affiliated brands.


Cardmembers can collect a minimum of three points for every £1 spent when they buy from a Nectar partner using their American Express Nectar Credit Card and linked Nectar card, or two points for every £1 spent on their credit card anywhere that accepts American Express.


New Cardmembers can also claim 20,000 Nectar points when they are accepted for the product and spend £2,000 in the first three months of membership, and 5,000 bonus points when they recommend a friend.


Amir Rasekh, Managing Director, Nectar360, explains: “After 18 years of working together, we’re delighted to continue our journey with American Express, which represents exactly the kind of partner our customers value. Alongside other trusted partners such as Sainsbury’s, Argos, British Airways, eBay and Esso, we are enabling customers to drive value across a huge array of household spend and across many of the UK’s most-loved brands.”


Nikki Edelman, Vice President at American Express, says: “Since our partnership began in 2005, we have been delighted to drive value for our Cardmembers alongside Nectar360. We continue to find additional value for our customers through the partnership, as they boost their points balance and generate personalised rewards which we know they love.”
