  • A lot of in-store discounts some members have posted here are also available by just showing your NHS ID. I've successfully got discounts at Nike, Clarks, Mountain Warehouse, Le Creuset, Gap etc. by just showing my NHS ID. I now as a rule ask everywhere if they do NHS discount. Does the blue light card offer discount where NHS ID doesn't work?

    Blue light card is a emergency service discount. You will often receive anything between 20 to 50% off or a free meal, and you can also do good deals on mobile contracts from the major phone companies.

    Amazing to not see on here the many, many unhappy people that have been commenting for weeks on the BLC facebook page. I applied for the card, using the same form of ID as my colleagues. Frustratingly some of us were successful yet some declined over our ID. Those declined have not had their £4.99 refunded and for some like myself, it’s been weeks and multiple emails. They are very quick to take your £4.99 before your application’s been approved, yet there seems to be no replies to my emails asking when i’ll be refunded. Their Facebook page is full of frustrated key workers failing to get support, refunds or help - lots have given up and just want their refund, yet none seem to appear. Any ideas who I can escalate this to? Yes they’re a small team but they’re keeping an awful lot of money without lawfully refunding and that’s not on

    I put in a ticket a few months ago about a certain retailer, but the answer is still pending. Apart from that though, I have managed to get some good deals over the years.
    There's an updated list of discount retailers here if anyone is interested.
