The way to get a Makro membership is either:

1, Join yourself which you have to provide a: either proof of self employment, this is normally something from the inland revenue or national insurance contributions and 2 recent purchase invoices over £50.

2, As a business: This is either a company cheque book, company credit card, paying in book and 2 recent purchase invoices over £50.

3, If you know a police officer then they can get a Makro card on production of their warrent card. In some stores this also applies to Royal Navy.

4, Services such as Social Services, NHS and councils can normally get a card by writing into the Makro store on headed paper.

If you know someone that has a Makro card then you can use that card if they write you a little note saying that you can use that card.

There are a few crafty ways of getting round the self employed route. I would suggest going in and applying at the weekend normally when there are youngsters working as they are much more flexible. Hope this helps.

You can usually get a card if you buy for a PTA or similar organisation.
Martin has asked me to tell you that I'm the Board Guide of the Telephones, Reclaim Bank Charges, Silver Savers and Scotland boards which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly and I can move and merge threads there.

i used to work for Makro and if you say that your self employed all u need to do its produce " 2 recent purchase invoices for over £50" that you can produce on your computer at home. As tinkerbelle said the best time to go is at the weekends as you will find people to be a hell of alot more flexible and to be honest save you a lot of trouble. If they ask for more pieces of information say that you will provide them at a later date, because 9 times out of 10 the application is just put in the pile to be processed any way. What i would say is just be wary that VAT is added on to the prices that you see instore and that some bargins arent exactly bargins

You would need to provide some evidence unfortunately as everything goes out to the marketing department who check it.

Do you know a childminder as all they have to provide is a coy of their certificate and a bill with there address on it. Which store is it that you tried at?
