Bingo and it’s gone!
Nectar loses partner in entertainment sector
Gala Bingo has left the Nectar multi-retailer rewards scheme effective from May 31.
Any Nectar points earned with Gala Bingo until this date will still be valid and can used to spend in any shop still participating in the scheme including Sainsbury’s. From June 1 however, Nectar points cannot be used in any Gala Bingo club.
There has been no comment from either Nectar or Gala Bingo as to the reason for the decision. A Gala Bingo statement said, “We continue to listen to your [their customers’] feedback and remain committed to bringing you great value bingo, everyday.”
In the past Gala Bingo ran a number of promotions relating to Nectar rewards and even produced the first ever one million points nectar card winner.
Gala Bingo has apparently suffered troubled times recently, like many bingo operators, according to the Online Bingo Club which commented: “It is a sad day to see such a great bingo related loyalty scheme like the one Gala and Nectar had going to bite the bingoing dust.”
