No. GWR has never held details about your Nectar Card number. Strict security measures were in place under GDPR laws preventing GWR knowing your Nectar Card number (which was protected by what is called a Hashed ID which only Nectar could access).
You must link your Nectar card number to the 'My Account' section at one of the FirstGroup train companies shown to collect points on train tickets bought online. Once you have linked your card, you will be eligible to collect:

b) 50 points for the online purchase or renewal of a weekly season ticket (where available)
c) 200 points for the online purchase or renewal of a monthly season ticket (For tickets valid for more than 1 month, but less than a year, you will collect points for every full month, up to a maximum of 2,500). i.e. a 2 month, 3-week season ticket would be worth 400 points. 2,500 points for the online purchase or renewal of an annual season ticket; (All season tickets offers are subject to change from time to time and will be updated on this website accordingly).

Bookings for group travel that cannot be completed online will not qualify for Nectar points.
Incorrect or invalid Nectar cards or Nectar card numbers will not be awarded points. Customers are responsible for ensuring the details they enter are correct.
Points will appear on your account within 28 days of buying your tickets.
If you receive a refund, any Nectar points collected will be deducted from your Nectar account within 28 days. Deductions for multiple tickets are calculated on the individual ticket price. You will not be eligible to retain Nectar points in respect of any fee payable in relation to a refund.
