Making The Most Of Your Daily Mail Rewards Club Points – with MyMail club nectar points
Hi! We may earn money from the companies mentioned in this post. Thank you :)
So what exactly is the Daily Mail Rewards club?
In 2017 The Daily Mail’s club, MyMail Rewards, partnered with Nectar . This meant that you could now earn Nectar points every single time you read a paper copy of the newspaper.
In the same way you collect coffee stamps every time you buy coffee, My Mail Rewards connects to your Nectar card and gives you Nectar points simply for reading the Daily Mail. Simply put, it’s a loyalty scheme.
You still earn your Nectar points in all the usual places you have been, this is a way to earn extra points for reading a paper you perhaps buy anyway.
You can claim 80 points every single day, including with The Mail on Sunday. 30 of these points are a bonus for collecting 5 out of 7 unique codes.
Getting started with MyMail Rewards
Getting started with Mail Rewards is simple and straightforward. MyMail is FREE to sign up to. Simply follow these steps to start collecting points:
- Head over to the Mail Rewards sign up page when you’re ready
- Once you’ve set up an account, you’ll need your Nectar card number. This is on the front of your Nectar card – If you’ve been a member of Nectar but can’t find your Nectar card, or you are not a member yet, you can join up through the MyMail sign in process
- When prompted, simply enter your Nectar account number and press JOIN!
The Mail has made this process pretty straight forward, but there is a YouTube video further down you can watch if you need to.
How does Mail Rewards work?
Every day, there is a unique number printed in every single copy of the paper. It looks like this:
The codes are 12 digits long, so don’t try and add the 3 letters on the end, just the numbers as highlighted above!
Head over to the MyMail Rewards site and enter your code. The points are then added to your account. It can take up to 2 weeks for the points to appear on your statement, so don’t worry if they’re not showing straight away.
It’s also handy to know that you have 3 days to add your codes before they expire, so if you can’t get online the same day just copy the code and add it in when you can.
This short YouTube video shows you how to set up your account if you’re not sure.
How many Nectar points do I get from mail rewards?
You can earn up to 80 Nectar points weekly. You get different amounts depending on the day, don’t forget, you need to have collected 5 out of 7 papers to be awarded the 30 Nectar point bonus.
These are the daily points MyMail will award you:
Where are the my mail rewards unique numbers?
You’ll find the numbers on the back of the newspaper. They’re headed ‘Enter Unique Numbers at www.dailymail.co.uk My Mail in partnership with nectar‘. You’ll see them right at the bottom, back page.
How much are my Nectar points worth?
People often get confused by Nectar points saying they’re not as clear to understand as Tesco ClubCard points.
This is an easy to understand way of knowing how much cash they’ll convert to.
- 100 Nectar points are worth 50p
- 200 Nectar points are worth £1.00
- 300 Nectar points are worth £1.50
And so on and so on. That’s if you redeem them in the store. At certain times of the year, Christmas and Easter for example, Sainsbury’s have flash offers, so your points might be worth double for a week, or you might get double the value of your points when you buys toys or goods from specific parts of the shop.
Sainsbury’s rarely advertise these sales though, so it’s hard to know when to spend them to get the most value. As a non official rule they’re held about twice a year, but that’s not set in stone.
That said, you generally get better value when you exchange your points for rewards rather than cash off your shopping.

Are Mail rewards really worth collecting?
If you read the Daily Mail anyway or work somewhere that buys daily papers, then yes, these rewards are very much worth collecting.
80 points a week is a whopping 4,160 points, redeemable in cash at just over £20. It’s not life changing, no, but if you’ve got access to the unique codes, it takes seconds to put the codes in and it’s a free £20.
I’ve generally found that Nectar points add up fairly fast, especially when you’re collecting them in other places. It might be useful to know that you can also collect Nectar points in these places as well:
- eBay – Link your card and forget about it. Every time you buy something, points will be added to your Nectar account
- ASOS – Got teens obsessed with ASOS? Link your card and get a little back in Nectar points!
- Next – Double points if you’re a Next shopper
- Sky Mobile – Earn Nectar points on your phone bill. I’ve recently been switching our phone contracts to Sky, collecting Nectar points is a nice bonus for a bill we pay anyway!
There are actually a whole load of places you can collect Nectar points, some of which really surprised me! There’s a link to them here, so while you’ve got your Nectar card out, it might be worth you making sure you’re not missing out on any other places that offer points just for being a customer.
Nectar often has offers that boost your Nectar balance so you might be able to get more for your points when you redeem them against a non-cash reward. Check Nectars site for updated offers.

It’s not only Nectar points the Mail Rewards Club offers, in fact, the club existed long before they joined forces with Nectar.
Mail rewards has a few other things you might be interested to know about. These are just a couple:

The MailRewards Club has it’s own shop, selling everything from financial products to clothes and gardening products to food and wine hampers.
Many of the tings they sell have been featured in their newspaper, so if you’ve seen something that’s caught your eye, you’ll likely be able to find it in the paper.
As always though, make sure you’re not able to find what you want to buy cheaper elsewhere. They do say they offer members exclusive prices, but best to check that for yourself!
