Default Nhs discounts??

I did not have a clue where to post this so sorry if its in the way...Does anyone have any idea what discounts, if any, are offered to NHS staff?? I know there is a website with a few bits and bobs on but just wondered if anyone has managed to get anything in shops etc. Dorothy Perkins/Top Man used to give discount in store but stopped a few years back.Thanks guys :-)

Default NHS Discounts

The website still exists.

Not sure if the link will show up as it's my first post (been lurking for years) so it's: www dot nhsdiscounts dot com

You will need to register as usual, but to be honest I don't always think they have fantastic offers, but I can complain because something is better than nothing.

Happy Shopping

MOVING THREADS FOR BETTER RESPONSES

Hi, Martin’s asked me to post this in these circumstances: I’ve asked Board Guides to move threads if they’ll receive a better response elsewhere (please see this rule) so this post/thread has been moved to another board, where it should get more replies. If you have any questions about this policy please email forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com.

I am a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly and I can move and change posts there. However, please remember board guides don't read every post.

Domino's used to give 50% discount, and still do in some places, but has been reduced to 25% in a lot of places.

You can get a discount on mobile contracts with orange

You can buy a wide range of giftcards and vouchers via nhsdiscounts.com, which give you anything from 3% to 10% off at a wide range of places. Asda 3.5%, B&Q 6% etc

You get a certain % off at Apple, but the higher education discounts are higher than what the NHS discounts are.

Burtons is 10% off.

You can sign up to the NHSdiscounts site (as posted by another poster above) for additional discounts but with your staff card shown in various stores you can get some perks...

You get 10% at Nandos and cafe rouge with a valid staff card

Do you know how they got the 25% discount on Three?

I've just called them and they said they don't offer the 25% discount and that there's a code we can use to get £100 cashback on our intranet, but all NHS sites have their own intranet.

Confused!!

Three used to offer the 25% discount a long time ago, but its not showed up on NHSdiscounts for about a year now. The three link on NHS discounts just takes you to http://www.buymobilephones.net where the prices are the same as on the three website anyway.

Dominos have also dropped their offer to 25% in some area's, so double check that before ordering. There are always online discount codes around for Dominos so check before you order, it might be cheaper to just use a discount code rather than mess about with the NHS discount.

Likewise with Bodyshop.

Asked orange about their NHS discount on the iphone tarrifs, but it doesn't apply on those!

You can also buy vouchers for a lot of stores which will give you a few quid off here and there but overall, its not worth it. I've worked for the NHS for 8 years and never taken advantages of any of the so called "discounts"

BHS do a 10% discount, including sale items. We use it quite regularly.

Just to let people know, not all Domino's offer an NHS discount. All stores are franchised and it's up to the franchisee on all deals or discounts. Some offer emergency services discounts and military but are collection only, not for delivery. Most won't offer them on delivery. Thanks for all the advice though! I'll make sure and take my ID to Nandos next time!

Thumbs up NHS discounts Nandos and EE shops

I've worked for the NHS for years and was completely unaware of some brilliant offers available to NHS staff . Go seek them out!

A colleague informed me recently about Nandos, simply showed my work ID badge in a local Nando's and got 20% off whole of my bill (for 2 people).
......Be slightly careful though, one server gave me 20% off whole of my bill and another server in the same restaurant asked if both of us worked for the NHS and claimed that the discount was available on the NHS workers meal only?!!

Found out yesterday that EE shops offer 20% discount on all contract tariffs over £20 per month to NHS staff, Emergency workers, Millitary, council and teaching staff!!
Was about to buy a phone at EE store where, after overhearing a conversation I was having with my daughter, the store manager asked me where I worked and kindly informed me of the offer and listed all workers eligible (see above).
Got the discount today, showed my work ID badge and a payslip which they photocopied (to qualify the payslip had to be current, within the last couple of months).

Such good offers, really pleased!.......Does anyone else know of other similarly significant moneysaving offers for NHS staff? (Include terms of the offer, if you can please?).
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Exclamation

Does anyone know if the o2 discount is off the mobile bill each month? I have only ever had a 'lump sum' of credit added to my account and then deduct the monthly amount off that until it has ran out, but if anyone knows how to get a monthly discount, please let me know.
Cheers.

You can also get discounts on new car lease deals - see forcesleasing.com, they supply to the military, police and other emergency services, including NHS.

Default Orange

I changed by tarriff with Orange 2 months ago and I have only just seen this NHS discount thread that you can get a 20% discount on tarriff over £20, my tarriff is £21 so only just.

So I have rang Orange complaining that when I asked if there were anyother discounts that could be applied I was told no, gave it the sob story. They informed me the discount only applies when you initially take out the tarriff but on this occassion they will honour it as its only been 2 months.

Yippe 20% discount. Worth ago
