November had a Nectar promotion for double points which we have already covered. Now in December they have this offer where if you book a ticket you will get a 1000 point 'Christmas bonus', 1000 Nectar points are worth £5.

We're not happy that VTEC are continuing to stir the Nectar pot. Those who remember East Coast Rewards don't want constant reminders about Nectar and how poor the scheme is. If Nectar needs to be mentioned why so prominently, all it does is cause resentment.

If East Coast Rewards was still around those who were regular travellers would have earned hundreds of pounds worth of free tickets, those who travelled only occasionally would have earned some lounge passes or WiFi access.

Once again a Nectar promotion turns out to be more of an insult than a reward.
