Money Saving expert Martin Lewis has shared a very helpful trick to help shoppers get ‘free’ goods at Sainsburys.
Speaking on tonight’s 100th episode of The Martin Lewis Money Show, the presenter revealed that American Express cardholders can get £184 to spend in the grocery store if they have the rewards gold card.
‘This is how to get serious shopping at Sainsburys,’ he began. ‘It’s about the American Express rewards gold credit card.
‘Now, if you’re accepted for that and you spent £3,000 in three months then you get 23,000 Amex reward points, which includes 20,000 point bonus.
‘The first thing you do is you convert 23,000 Amex points into 23,000 Avios points.’
He continued: ‘Then, because you can now swap Avios points into Nectar, you convert that into 36,000 Nectar points, which you can then spend at Nectar partners, including Sainsburys, where it’s worth £184 – nearly double what they would typically suggest.’

‘This is a new thing that’s come in, Avios to Nectar, and you can do Nectar to Avios too, that’s why this trick works,’ he added.
‘Do it carefully if you do this, but there can be free shopping for you there.’
Martin did, however, warn audiences that they should only do this if they’re normal spending is over £1,000 a month.
To convert points, account holders need to link their Nectar and British Airways Executive Club accounts, which can be done on either the Nectar or British Airways Executive Club website.
From there, select the ‘Convert your points’ option on either site and then users can also choose to convert points automatically in either direction.
