Nectar Ushers in Ticket Deals for Cardholders

Press Release   •  Jun 09, 2015 09:44 BST

Nectar, the UK’s largest loyalty programme[1], is putting entertainment centre stage this month with the launch of its brand new digital platform - Nectar Tickets. Through a partnership with Monitise, a leading digital commerce provider, Nectar Tickets allows consumers to use their Nectar points to unlock exclusive deals for events nationwide such as theatre, comedy, live music, exhibitions and museums, at a fraction of the cost and directly on site.

Marking the first in a series of exciting announcements from Nectar this year, Nectar Tickets is an all-new offering which gives cardholders the chance to exchange points for entertainment, whilst enjoying exclusive offers only available with Nectar. From 50% off shows such as Let it Be in London’s West End, to 2 for 1 on tickets for Moscow State Circus in Manchester or Leeds*, access to shows up and down the country is now more affordable thanks to Nectar. Not only that, through Nectar Tickets, customers can get access to one-off experiences including meeting their favourite band or joining the stage during a show.

The Nectar Tickets site, nectar.com/tickets, has launched with the first impressive raft of events for users to browse. Here, cardholders can search for events by venue, city and time (this week, weekend or month) before selecting their seats and the number of Nectar points they wish to spend. Every 500 points redeemed will take £2.50 off the total price, which can be topped up with cash to purchase tickets right there and then.

There will be new offers added to nectar.com/tickets on a regular basis, making Nectar Tickets the new must-check website for consumers looking for fun and excitement with friends and family.

                                                                    -ends-

*These are examples of offers which are currently / will be available. Offers on tickets through Nectar Tickets change regularly, and Nectar cannot guarantee any specific offers (including these) in the future.
