Which ones do people find the best?

Personally for me It has to be Tesco. Mainly as we shop there the most but really no other supermarket lets us change our voucher x4 for meals out which are a god send when we are strapped for cash.

Morrisons - I think they are purely about the petrol miles
Sainsbury's - I have been shopping there for bits and bobs for years and have never really got anywhere with Nectar points


Boots - My other half swears by them!! lol

Waitrose! Not strictly a loyalty card as you don't build up points, but you get a free tea or coffee every day to drink in or take out - no purchase necessary. We've got one in our High Street so I partake of that particular perk regularly!

http://www.waitrose.com/content/waitrose/en/home/mywaitrose/mywaitrose_welcome.html

Also you get a free newspaper (Telegraph/Mail/Guardian or Observer - inc weekends) if you spend £5 in the store - if you coordinate this with a juicy offer in the paper that day and aren't too fussy which one you get, you can do quite nicely.

Waitrose can seem a bit pricey but if you shop wisely, and take advantage of the 10% offers for cardholders and keep your eyes peeled for reduced items (they appear randomly throughout the day - and the fresh meat counter always has reduced goodies) you don't need to spend any more than any other supermarket. I love it. Not been in Tesco or Sainsburys for years.

I'm a Tesco person also. We usually get about £12 in club card vouchers each time they arrive. I think the double up exchange is a god send, especially if one of the categories happens to contain something you need!

I also collect nectar points because I spend so much money on eBay, when these points rack up, I'll go spend them at Sainsbury's.

:D

Wow!, I did not know you get a free paper at weekends - That really is quite a good deal!

An offer like that doesn't really appeal to me, I'm not one to read a newspaper. I think I'd prefer my loyalty going towards more money off shopping than a small freebie.

I suppose that's great if you regular pop in there to get lunch or something, as it's about the right price.

I don't even know where my nearest Waitrose is lol.

I think I have a loyalty for every shop going.. I even got one from The Works last week, I thing you get 5 points per pound spend (can't really remember the details)

Tesco clubcard is great as we save the vouchers so my husband and I can do go karting.

Sainsbury's one is good as i save my points for the yearly toy sale around end of October.

Boots ones i save and treat myself to things like a new hair dryer etc

I do get my free coffee when I'm passing waitrose and have just signed up to John Lewis one to get a free drink and cake every month.

Tesco all the way for me!

I have enrolled into the Christmas Savers Club, where all my points are saved up until December. I can top them up too at the checkout with as little or as much as I like.

November I get the vouchers sent to me, then I use them in the "Christmas double up" scheme. I had £110 in vouchers last year and used the lot on the toys section. I then had £220 to spend on toys! Christmas was sorted!

Nectar for me. I can earn a lot without even having to shop in Sainsburys by doing the Nectar Surveys (Canvass), Adpoints, and toolbar.

There isn't a Tesco near me (that I can walk to) but I did sign up with a tesco card because I go there sometimes.

I also joined the John Lewis one, that's free cake and coffee vouchers (one per month)!

We just got our £25 of Tesco clubcard vouchers paid out

Turned them into £100 worth of Restaurant vouchers (bella italia, pizza express, cafe rouge etc.) - Great stuff!

we have had our payout as well

Traded them all in for Pizza express vouchers as I am on a diet and they do the pizzas with the hole in the middle which is very good for my weight watcher numbers ;)

Re the free paper at Waitrose - they've added the Times/Sunday Times to the list this week :)

I like my Nectar Card and build up a few points for free using Nectar Surveys (Canvass) and Adpoints.
I have redeemed for a few thing using my Nectar Points at Argos.
I don't use Tesco Clubcard much though I have one to use and I also have a Waitrose Card which I use for the free tea/coffee occasionally. Unfortunately we don't have a Waitrose with a cafe near us to go on a regular basis.

Yes free cake and you can have whatever you want too.
The John Lewis Card is worth it for that!

There's a John Lewis near me (is that giving away too much location info?) so I can go there and get free cake and coffee every month!

I wish they would. I used to be near a Lidl and used it for all my shopping now I am nearer an Aldi so use that now. I like both of them so it would be great if they did do some sort of Loyalty Card eventually. They are becoming increasingly more popular as people look to save money on their food shopping.
