How to add a picture of your Sainsbury's Nectar Card barcode to your mobile wallet
I am a member of a lot of loyalty schemes, and have a lot of different cards. I hate carrying them all around. Instead of having a chunky wallet, I usually have the apps on my phone. I’ve been a member of Sainsbury’s Nectar for a long time, but I’ve only just added it to my Google Play and Curve Wallets. I’ve been adding all of my cards to my phone this way. Because in most shops I visit, there is no mobile phone signal (Vodafone sucks). It started with a trick that I learned ages ago for Tesco, then found out that it also works with Morrisons and Sainsbury’s – just keeping a screenshot of my barcode on my phone. For Sainsbury’s, just take a snap of your Nectar Card barcode. Save the image to your phone, and never get caught without. Alternatively, you can add your Nectar Card, your Tesco Clubcard or your Morrisons More loyalty cards to your Google Pay Wallet and Curve app. This means that you can access Nectar Prices, Morrisons More offers or Clubcard Prices (and get my Clubcard Plus 10% discount) even if there is no phone signal.
If you don’t want Google/Apple Pay, there are actually now a number of apps that you can use instead. Each of these can be used to store all of your loyalty cards in one place. For example, there’s:
How to add your Sainsbury's Nectar Card to Google Pay
In Google Wallet, you can store and use digital copies of your loyalty and gift cards. Loyalty cards also include rewards and membership cards. With the Morrisons More Card, there is a button in the app that let’s you add your barcode direct to Google Pay or Apple Pay.
Add your Nectar loyalty card to the Google Pay app
- Open the Nectar app.
- Tap the card symbol to open up your card.
- Tap Add to Google Wallet or Add to Apple Pay.
- Next time you are in Sainsbury’s, just open up your mobile wallet and scan your card!
How to add your Nectar Card to the Curve App
With the Curve app/card, you can replace all of your debit and credit with just one. Curve is an aggregator card that let’s users use a single card for all of their banking needs and seamlessly “switch the bank card you paid with after each transaction is complete”. This is called the Go-Back-In-Time ~(GBIT) feature, but you can also just choose which underlying card will be charged beforehand.
The Curve app also features a loyalty section that stores your cards/barcodes and makes them accessible even if you have no mobile signal.
Add a loyalty card to the Curve app
- Open the Curve app.
- Tap Wallet.
- Tap Loyalty.
- Tap Add Card.
- Click on the retailer you want to add.
- You will have an option to either scan your existing card , or enter your card manually.
- You may have the option to scan your existing card, sign up for a new account or find your existing account. Follow the on-screen instructions.C
Hope that helps you always get Nectar prices!
