No, but we recommend that you do link your Nectar Card as you will have that added bit of security should you lose the card.
The Sainsbury’s Everyday Shopping Card is a gift card provided under Sainsbury’s Corporate Gift Card schemes.
Sainsbury’s strongly recommend that all gift cards are registered for security and transaction enquiry benefits.
To register the gift card must be linked to a Nectar Card – you will need to apply for a Nectar Card if you do not already have one.
The registration process is part of the Corporate Gift Card account managed by Sainsbury’s and requires separate login information from your www.raisewithSainsburys.com shopping card details.
Please note you will still need to produce your nectar card in store to claim nectar points, linking the card does not automatically assign points to your nectar card.
