The result of this association accounted store brands for almost 50% of Sainsbury’s revenue.  Earning and redeem of points: The shoppers belonging to Nectar carry a plastic card and produce it whenever they make a purchase and they are credited with the program points There are two ways to redeem the Nectar points: 1. While checking out at the end of the visit 2. Redeeming from Nectar either by calling the call centre or by visiting website Evaluation of the case  Should Sainsbury’s continue with Nectar? Pros Cons  Approximately 57% of the revenue is generated by Nectar’s loyalty program.  Multiple sponsor and incentive coupon awareness drives around 2.9% lift in the revenue  It has a tough competition with the great competitors and it has to sustain in the competition in the market  Sainsbury’s is spending more than 120 million pounds towards the loyalty program of Nectar, because of which the earnings are decreasing.  Should Sainsbury’s have its own loyalty program?

It can divert the funds allocated to the loyalty program towards the expansion and the promotions. It may help the Sainsbury’s to increase the sales volume and ultimately the market share. However, in this plan, it would have to incur the cost of the new employees and set up cost in the other cities. Possible solutions Considering the data in the given case, there can be two possible solutions for Sainsbury’s which it can implement in the current scenario. They are as following: 1. As Sainsbury’s has its own brand name, it can start with its own loyalty program and be independent of the Nectar. It will help Sainsbury’s to enhance the brand equity and in future it may also act as a competitor to Nectar for the best loyalty program host. 2. It can continue its association with Nectar for the restructured values of money. It may award points for every 3 or 4 pounds spent. This will help Sainsbury’s financiallyand strengthen the financial aspect of the company.
