Iceland Bonus Card

Does anyone understsnd the Iceland bonus card? I thought it was like a Tesco card, but I've just signed up for one and it serms to want me to load money onto it, like a gift card.

I've looked for info on the Iceland website, but it's really not clear to me.

Can anyone explain it?

    You top it up with money, and for every £20 you add, Iceland adds a £1 bonus.

    At the checkout you can choose to redeem your savings to pay for your shopping.

    Doing this equates to a 5% discount on everything you buy at Iceland.

    There are also some prices (like Tesco's Clubcard prices) that are only available when you scan your Bonus card.

    Sometimes there are extra promotions for bigger bonuses, like the current Christmas offer.

    In the past, they would give you a free product on your birthday, but I'm not sure if that still happens.

    Your numbers are wrong. My card states £1 bonus per £20 (which works out at 5%)  loaded onto it, not £2 (which would be 10%).

    Sorry yes £1 is the default - have corrected post above.

    (Though they run a double bonus promotion several times a year which gives you £2 per £20, albeit with a limited window to spend the extra £1.)

    So could I use it just for their offers - like a Tesco card - if I don't want to add money to it?

    @annie1960 - if you are 60 or over, go there on a Tuesday and get a further 10% off everything.

    There are often good bulk deals like £4.50 or £5 products on a 'buy three for £10'.

    With the discount you get that for £9 so it's a good saving
