Make your holiday dreams come true

hero-stylist.jpg

Whether you’re jetting off to a sun-drenched beach, considering a Eurostar getaway with friends, or just putting together your summer wardrobe, Nectar points can help.

By using the right rewards card to pay for your everyday shopping, your holiday could be happening sooner than you think, at a lower cost.

Recent research from American Express shows that women tend to use their Card rewards points for perks such as staying in an extra-special hotel (and who can blame us?)*

Nectar points can be spent on a huge range of travel-related rewards, from the latest Lonely Planet and Time Out guides, to a new luggage set.

Research reveals that nearly 40% of women spend up to £50 every year on holiday essentials**, so it’s good to know that Nectar points can be put towards stocking up on travel products or to refresh your holiday wardrobe.

And that’s not all, as Nectar points can be put towards the cost of the holiday itself at easyJet.com and Expedia.co.uk.

Plus, apply for an American Express Nectar Credit Card and collect 2 points for every £1 spent globally(1).

What’s more, if you start your American Express Nectar membership today, you’ll get an extra 10,000 Nectar points if you spend £1,000 or more in the first 3 months(2). That’s enough points for £50 off an easyJet flight, Expedia-booked hotel or Eurostar journey (taxes and fees apply) – or a fabulous new pair of sandals.

How will you spend yours?
