What is the Mail Rewards club and how does it work?
We all love finding ways of making our money work just that bit harder. Did you know there’s a way of doing this at the same time as reading all about the latest celeb gossip?
The Daily Mail rewards scheme, also known as MyMail, is a loyalty scheme where you collect points when you buy a copy of the Daily Mail or Mail on Sunday. The more times you buy, the more points you will bank and you can then:
Collect extra Nectar card points
Redeem exclusive offers
Enter competition to win big prizes
Linking to your Nectar card gives you a range of ways to save money on things like grocery shopping at Sainsbury’s, household goods, wine and experience days. To start, head to www.mymail.co.uk to setup and account.

First you need to buy an edition of the Daily Mail. The good news is that it costs just 70p in the week, £1 on a Saturday, and £1.80 for Sunday’s bumper edition.
3. Enter your ‘unique numbers’
Once you’re all set up, you need your “unique number” for each day you want to claim rewards.
4. Collect Nectar points with Daily Mail
You will build up free Nectar points every time you enter a unique code you find in the back of the Daily Mail. Once collected, you can either spend your Nectar points on My Mail, Mail Shop or one of the hundred’s of stores listed on the Nectar website.
What are Mail Rewards unique numbers and where do I find them?
The Mailrewards unique numbers are the 6 numbers you enter in your MyMail account every-time you buy a Daily Mail. Every time you enter your Daily Mail unique numbers you earn free Nectar points.
You’ll find the 6 unique numbers on the back cover, at the bottom, underneath the sports news and the crossword.
You then need to enter the numbers into your MyMail account at the top of the web page.
You have four days to do this, so you don’t need to log on every day if it’s a busy one. So, if you need to enter a code for Wednesday, you can wait until Saturday to get up to date. Just don’t throw your paper in the recycling pile just yet!
How do I link my Nectar account with my Mail Rewards account?
It’s pretty easy to link your accounts – do it through the MyMail site, whether or not you already have a nectar card and account.
Sign up, and you’ll be asked to enter your 11 digit Nectar card number along with your Nectar club password. If you don’t have them, you will be rerouted to sign up for Nectar, and then back to the main MyMail site.
How to claim free Nectar points and how to spend them with Mail Rewards?
You can collect 5 nectar points for each weekday edition, 10 points for Saturday, and 15 for Sunday’s issue. A bonus of 30 points is on offer if you’ve got the code for every day in a particular week (Saturday-Friday), bringing the maximum you can earn per week to 80 points.
Nectar points can be spent in blocks of 500, so you only need a few weeks’ worth of points to start getting money of your shopping bill.
What can I get with my free Nectar points on Mail Rewards?
The rewards really kick in when you combine your MyMail membership and linked nectar card with shopping in the Mail Shop. Scroll down for more on the Mail Shop.
New Nectar members will get their card number as part of this process. Just a few minutes, and you’ll be good to go! Go to your Daily mail rewards login and click on offers to find the most recent rewards.
What is the Mail Shop?
The Mail Shop works a bit like Groupon in some ways, offering seasonal products and experiences like brewery tours local to you.
You will find offers on everything from:
The prices are pretty competitive in themselves, with some bargains to be had this week on fans, portable air conditioners, rattan garden sets and garden hoses.
You earn nectar points at the rate of 2 per every £1 spent on Mail Shop, so that patio furniture could end up helping to pay for a fab summer bbq.

Are there alternatives to Mail Rewards?
The sheer range of offers available on Mymail.co.uk means it compares favourably to other deal and reward sites.
Love the Sales
Want to spend less on the biggest brands? Shop Love the Sales to find the best deals across the web on the world’s top brands. It’s the only site to have all the best deals from across the web in one place.
A lot of newspapers – for example, the Telegraph – offer exclusive discounts on holidays and events for their subscribers, but this means committing to buying every single issue
The Sun Savers scheme doesn’t offer the wide variety of rewards that the Mail scheme boasts, but it is brilliant in its simplicity.
Join the scheme, collect all 28 codes in a month (the paper comes out Monday to Saturday), and you get a fiver in your account, to leave there as a sort of savings club or withdraw there and then for a little treat.
Linked to this is the availability of £9.50 holidays and days out with Superdays.
The holidays are Butlins and similar affairs – cheap and cheerful, but very easy on the pocket and can be great fun.
There are other ways of making and saving cash without even noticing it.
Cashback sites like Quidco just need you to register, install a browser extension or app, and then collect cashback when you shop with a range of major retailers such as boots or Argos.
Alternatively, there are the classic supermarket rewards schemes such as Tesco Clubcard, which offers rather less now Tesco Direct has closed down.
It is still good for days out, and Morrisons More, which gives you cash back and vouchers on food and fuel.
What are the benefits of joining Mail Online Rewards Club?
From a new sofa to some chilled Sauvignon blanc – you can reap the rewards with just a few clicks if you’re organised.
Like any offer site, it’s worth a careful browse and comparison with other sites to pick out the best deals – but there’s some great stuff available, especially when it comes to holidays and long-term bargains.
At the moment, you can snap up a three day mini-break to the beautiful city of Krakow for only £129 per person – including flights.
One offer definitely worth considering for careful energy shoppers is the fixed-price deal with EDF – enter your details to check it out.
