Clubcard, Nectar points, they’re all worth investing into, given the cost of living and all.

And now Sainsbury’s has made it easier to collect more of their store points with a challenge that’s also good for your health.

The supermarket has reintroduced its ‘Great fruit & veg challenge’, offering customers the chance to earn additional Nectar points by putting more fruit and vegetables in their shopping baskets.

The challenge sets customers three personalised portion tasks based on shopping habits and lets them earn a minimum of 1,000 bonus Nectar points once all are complete.

Customers buying fruit and vegetables ranging from fresh, tinned, frozen and dried can contribute towards their portions.

While you can join the seven-week challenge on the Nectar app any time, the earlier you participate, the more chances you’ll have to rack up the Nectar.

You can also use up the Nectar points at several places, including Sainsbury’s, Argos, Esso and eBay, or convert Nectar points to Avios to put towards a British Airways flight.

Last year’s challenge saw a mammoth 88 million portions of fruit and vegetables purchased throughout the period, with participating customers buying over three times more fruit and vegetables than those who did not participate.

Alex Lovell, head of loyalty marketing at Sainsbury’s, said: ‘We know how important it is for our customers to eat a varied and healthy diet, and that’s why we’re bringing back the Great fruit & veg challenge for yet another year.

‘The challenge is a great incentive for our customers to purchase more of the fruit and vegetables they love and to add some more variety to their shopping baskets.’

From Wednesday 23 August to Tuesday 10 October, the Great fruit & veg challenge returns to Sainsbury’s for the fourth year running.

Those looking to take part in this year’s challenge can opt in on the Nectar app.
