The idea is simple.
On a monthly basis, we buy supermarket gift cards in bulk at a discount. We sell them to scheme members at face value. The full amount of the discount goes to the school.
We work with Tesco, John Lewis/Waitrose and Sainsbury's.
The percentage of the order value given to us is as follows:
You still get your Clubcard or Nectar points.
For example, if you pay us £100, we give you £100 worth of gift cards. In addition, Tesco give us £5 Sainsbury's give us £4.00 and John Lewis/Waitrose give us £7.50!
Most of the scheme's members buy gift cards for their monthly shopping and petrol. However, we encourage you to consider using gift cards for one-off large purchases as well. Examples include electronics from John Lewis.
