Join the MyMail Rewards Club! Now, as you indulge in your daily news, you can also collect Nectar points. The Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday have teamed up their loyalty programs with Britain's biggest retailer, Nectar, offering subscribers an enticing way to gather bonus points.

What is the MyMail club

MyMail is Britain's largest British newspaper loyalty club. Its official web page is

MyMail & Nectar for your profits

Since 2017, MyMail's loyalty program has become cross-branded, teaming up with Nectar. When you buy newspapers and subscribe, you receive Nectar points to your account. Given the cost of newspapers, you could argue that this is the cheapest way to earn free Nectar points.

To benefit from this, you must register and set up your rewards account with the club. You must also have a Nectar loyalty registration (we wrote about how to get a Nectar card here). Nectar is the UK's most popular loyalty program – and it's free. Nectar account means the individual account associated with a particular user registered with Nectar. As a reminder, Nectar is part of Sainsbury's loyalty scheme, and includes Argos, British Airways, Esso, eBay and the Daily Mail Group, alongside many more of different brands. (Read more about Sainsbury's here). The Nectar Account will need to be linked to your MyMail account. We'll tell you how to do this below.

The accumulated points can be spent on purchases wherever the Nectar card is accepted. Many Nectar loyalty program partner websites and shops accept these points as payment for any product, so there is plenty of choice in how you spend your rewards. Visit for details of all Nectar partners and how to spend your points with them.

MyMail and Nectar: what reward will I receive?

Once you have registered for MyMail Online Rewards Club and linked your Nectar Account you can start earning points for newspapers. The loyalty program will be particularly beneficial for regular readers – the points will accrue quickly and the rewards will be noticeable.

The way to earn rewards is very straightforward. On the back page of the newspaper, you'll find a unique 12-digit number, which, when entered, gets you those precious points.

Rewards for non-subscribers

Here Nectar points will be credited to your account every time you enter your unique number: 5 Nectar points from Monday to Friday.

Calculating the benefit of the reward

Well, let's calculate how much you can earn by buying Daily Mail newspapers.

Number of points per week

If you read the newspaper every day, you'll earn 80 Nectar points each week:

1 Daily Mail newspaper (on a weekday) = 5 Nectar points. 5x5=25 Nectar points per week.

+ 1 Daily Mail newspaper (on Saturday) = 10 Nectar points.

+ 1 Mail on Sunday newspaper = 15 Nectar points.

+ When you buy 5 newspapers or more in one week, MyMail gives 30 Nectar points in addition.

Number of points per month

You could earn between 260 and 350 per month, depending on the number of days.

Number of points per year

In total, you can earn over 3,500 points to redeem each year. That's £17.50 if you cash out for a purchase.

Not a lot in a year, but not a little either. Not a bad reward, well, especially if you already buy newspapers every day.

The good thing about the loyalty scheme is that Daily Mail points are not subject to a time limit. The points can be deducted in any amount, so you can save them for Christmas, for example, rather than spending them immediately.

Important: Although points don't have an expiry date, if you don't use your Daily Mail account for more than twelve months, your account will close and your accumulated points will be lost.

Nectar points are worth:

  • 50 Nectar points are worth £0.25
  • 100 Nectar points are worth 50p
  • 200 points are worth £1.00
  • 300 points are worth £1.50
  • 1000 points are worth £5.00

Please note that 'Newspapers' refers only to the Daily Mail or The Mail on Sunday and their supplementary editions and magazines. But! Newspapers bought abroad (including in the Republic of Ireland) and unpaid copies are not covered by the rewards scheme!

Daily Mail Nectar points: are they worth it?

Let's calculate whether the Daily Mail Nectar bounty is worth messing with if you're not much of a newspaper reader. Of course, buying a newspaper just for the sake of a reward is a fool's errand. Let's look at the calculation of your costs and profits from the reward.

1 Daily Mail newspaper (weekday) = 80p. 5 x 80p = £4 a week.

+ 1 Daily Mail newspaper (Saturday) = £1.20.

+ 1 Mail on Sunday newspaper = £1.90.

So your expenditure on newspapers will be £7.10 per week.

The maximum number of Nectar points you can get in a week by buying the Daily Mail is 80 points.

1 Nectar point is worth £0.01.

That means your reward for the week will be 40p.

So you need to spend £7.10 to get 40p back. Think about it.

Our conclusion is that this bounty system will only benefit loyal readers and subscribers. In that case the rewards are a nice perk. If you have to buy newspapers just to participate in the loyalty scheme, then the direct benefit is questionable.

Where can I get the Free Daily Mail Newspaper?

Here's a little tip – you can get the Daily Mail newspaper for free. But you have to be a registered member of another loyalty scheme, Waitrose (we've already written about the Waitrose rewards scheme here). Waitrose often run promotions on various newspapers: for example, you can get the Daily Mail for free on purchases over £10. To get a free copy of the Daily Mail show your MyWaitrose card at checkout (we wrote about how to get a MyWaitrose card here). If you shop at Waitrose often, this is a way to get extra points that you shouldn't miss out on. It really will save you money.

How can I increase my Nectar Daily Mail Rewards points?

If you're looking to get the most out of your Daily Mail Rewards loyalty scheme, then try taking part in the competitions that are often run amongst registered users. Another good way to increase your benefits is to bundle other rewards schemes together with the Daily Mail Rewards scheme. For example, you could link your card to eBay and ASOS accounts to earn extra points when you shop at these shops.

There are plenty of other places where you can redeem Nectar points more profitably than at Sainsberry's. Keep an eye out for promotions. The Sky Store, for example, is offering to redeem points for movies, while eBay offers 500 points for £5.00 on certain items.

Another way to increase those points is with the Nectar App. According to their site, you can earn three times more, using their Nectar app which is free to download.
