    At Somerfield, I used to get 10% discount card and one for my mum too, rising to 20% in Christmas period.

    Now I am a schoolteacher, I get nowt! Except 10% discount in Staples, and get to go on school trips for free - sometimes exotic locations, sometimes not...

    OH works for BT, gets broadband for 10/month taken straight from his wages.

    Homebase staff get 20% discount - but 10% on consumer electrics ie telly, video, dvd etc. Can't be used in conjunction with the 10-20% off days they have for the general public or family and friends. They also get 10% off at Argos.

    Got my new discount card at the begining of this year, the discount book that comes with it is much smaller than it used to be! :-( I get discount in Jewellers, for car hire, on cinema, ice skating, Royal Yacht Britannia, National Trust membership, vision express, local chain of indian restaurants and loads of other rather random places. I've got to be honest I haven't ever used it.

    I work for the nhs and we were given a booklet with loads of places that will give you a discount on producing your ID card, Saved about 10 in Chester Zoo last year, can save in restaurants, cinemas, gyms, book shops and loads more. That is the only perk working for the nhs.

    It's a darn shame because I do think HR could do a better job looking after nhs staff escpecialyl considering how many do work for the nhs. But that's a whole other story.

    I work for Midlands Co-operative Society in one of their supermarkets and I get:
    10% off food (15% off at Christmas)
    15% off non food excluding electricals (10%) - although rises to 20/25% twice a year on members days
    Discounts on Funeral Services, Garage Services
    Plus special staff services sometimes! - my mum got a stereo system worth 300 for just over 100 before Christmas!
    Last year after the profits had been announced p/t employees got 50 pounds in MCS vouchers, and f/t 100 pounds in vouchers, but you had to be working there for at least a year, so I missed out . Hopefully if profits go up this year I'll get something!
