    Money Moral Dilemma: Should I share my discount with my friends?

    Money Moral Dilemma: Should I share my discount with my friends? 14th Dec 17 at 12:19 PM
    This week's MoneySaver who wants advice asks...

    I often book theatre tickets for myself and friends, who then pay me back. However, I recently bought a discount card (which cost £40) that gets me money off tickets. Should I continue to charge my friends full-price until the cost of the card has been covered, or just ask them to pay me the discounted price?

    Unfortunately the MSE team can't always answer money moral dilemma questions as contributions are often emailed in or suggested in person. They are intended to be enjoyed as a point of debate and discussed at face value.

    Firstly there's no "moral dilemma" here - as usual.
    Anyway you paid for the card & you're taking on the hassle of buying the tickets. I would just continue having them pay full price - I guess I'm a bad friend :-D
    But honestly if roles were reversed I wouldn't complain. It's like somebody taking you shopping, then you letting them have your reward points on their card because you don't have one. Who cares?

    But yes what you suggest (re: giving them the discount once the card is paid off) seems perfectly fair to me.

    But... are you going to let them foot the full £40 bill for the card, though? Or are you factoring in what you've saved each time as a virtual contribution towards the card? XD
    More hassle than it's worth iof you ask me.

  • Interesting piece yet they asked me if it was a publicity stunt and I said yes partially, in order to raise awarene?
