(Ad) How to earn rewards on fuel and food with Esso Nectar

Earn points on Esso fuel and food

Did you know that you can now collect Nectar points at loads of Esso service stations?

I do love earning rewards on spending I’d do anyway, so I jumped at the chance when Esso asked me to help spread the word. Since June, you can now rack up points via the Esso Nectar loyalty programme – then spend them on something special! 

Loyalty points really can add up to make a big difference. When I last totted up how much we benefitted from assorted loyalty cards over a year, it came to a chunky £300. 

So here’s how I make the most of collecting points with Esso Nectar. 

Pin for later:

Two people, one account

My husband and I have a card each on the same account, so we can max out on collecting points whoever’s driving and whoever does the shopping.

Fuelling up on Esso Nectar points

With Esso, you earn one Nectar point for every litre of fuel. I may not use much petrol working from home, but my husband drives into his office and back every day. Even with a hybrid car, the petrol purchases do add up!

Pay and get Esso Nectar points at the pump

Easier with an app

Esso make it easier to pay, via the Esso app. You can pay at the pump without even leaving the comfort of your own car using PayPal or Apple Pay – handy if the kids are kicking off in the back, or you can’t face queuing.

Plus, if you link your Nectar card to the app, you can rack up points with every payment, plus a handy 500 bonus points the first time you use it.  The bonus is worth £2.50 when spent with most Esso Nectar loyalty programme partners, or up to a fiver  during special promotions.

This all sounded like wizardry to me, but I downloaded the free Esso app and it was super easy to connect to PayPal and put in my Nectar card number.

Plus, it does actually pay at the pump!

I just have to open the app, slide across to the pump number (not ideal to pay for someone else’s petrol…) and authorise the payment. Then shades of James Bond, as you have 90 seconds after authorisation (go, go, go) to leap out of the car and start fuelling. The payment happens automatically after you put the fuel nozzle back in the petrol pump, so you can just slide back into the car and swan off. You even get emailed a VAT receipt afterwards, and the app stores a list of your petrol purchases for 90 days.

G’wan, give the Esso app a go – download here

Earning points on top up shopping

Savvy swaps on shopping

If you do nip into the service station shop, you can also earn two Nectar points for every £1 spent, just by swiping your Nectar card at the till.

So by swapping some top up shopping, like bread and milk, to Esso, we earn twice as many points per pound than in a supermarket. If I cave in to demands for snacks, meal deals or magazines by the kids, or pick up the Sunday paper, at least I know we’re earning something from our spending…

Loads of place to pick up Esso Nectar points

There are around 1,000 Esso service stations where you can collect points from the Esso Nectar loyalty programme – check out the nearest to you here. The Esso app also has a map where you can switch between all Esso stations and the stations that accept mobile pay via the app.

Hoarding points towards a holiday

Hoarding towards a holiday

Personally, I like to hoard points all year, so we can reward ourselves with something special. It’s good to know our essential spending can earn us things we really want. I’ve got my eye on money off a holiday, as a great family present. But you could also put points towards food for the festive season. Check out all the places you can spend Esso Nectar points, from dining to decorating, train tickets to cinema trips, here


Now – over to you. Have you earned any points from Esso Nectar? Have you downloaded the Esso app? What would you spend your points on? Do share in the comments, I’d love to hear!


Between 5 November 2019 and 26 February 2020, Esso customers can benefit from a Nectar points double up, helping to make the everyday more rewarding for drivers.

For every qualifying purchase of £5 or more on shop items such as milk or snacks at participating Esso Stations, customers will receive double the amount of Nectar points, simply by swiping their Nectar card at the till when they pay.

Terms and conditions apply for the Esso Nectar loyalty programme. This is a collaborative post with Esso.

      Sounds like a great use of points! I’ve been glad of the 500 point bonus from using the Esso app to make my first payment at the pump.

    Good post and summary.
    It might be just because Sainsbury’s/Esso is inconvenient for where I live and that we have a Tesco’s nearby – but I find that the Nectar points scheme is a little underwhelming.
    I signed up for an AMEX card and got 20,000 points but found the best value way to spend them was at sainsburys.
    With Tesco (ordinary) clubcard points, I recently exchanged £4 for £12 off a bus ticket – which was a nice saving.
    We use a lot of fuel in our household and the average 3-5p saving at Tesco vs. BP/Esso others means a saving of maybe £75-£125 a year. Plus the nearest Esso Station is a 6 mile round trip out of our way – meaning extra extra costs.

      As you say, with loyalty cards, a lot depends on what’s convenient, so I can see why the Tesco Clubcard works well for you.
      But for anyone who is filling up at an Esso station, it’s great to get Nectar points on that spending, especially with the 500 Nectar point boost the first time you pay with the Esso app.

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

    Real spell casters are hard to find but I am happy to thank Lord Krish for helping me win the lottery successfully after trying so many spell casters and I found my happiness in Lord Krish. I was given the lottery numbers by him which made me the third highest lottery winner in history and this is all thanks to you sir. Winning the lottery is something everyone would like to feel especially with a trustworthy spell caster. I, Yanira Alvarez, won the Powerball lottery in Los Angeles and I really thank Lord Krish because after I contacted him, he told me to only provide the spiritual items for him to do it for me and I didn’t hesitate to give him what he required so I could win it. I have tried so many spell casters who seemed real but only Lord Krish numbers gave me the winnings. I won the Powerball Jackpot of $1.08 billion and I am here today to share my experience to those willing to win the lottery as well. Take this opportunity to contact Lord Krish Spiritual with his email: lordkrishshrine@gmail.com and also share your experience with others.
