    Well done great thread. Does anyone know of a similar one for NHS employees?
    Thought there was and teachers
    Great thread, I would have loved something like this when I was in the forces.

    You also get 20% off at Nandos when you show your ID card

    should do, I'd check ^ could be a vet?
    Can anyone see what the sky deal is please
    This is also for veterans (ex forces) also!

    At long last the UK has sort to appreciate HM Forces. We still have a long way to go before we show the same support as the USA does to its serving and former serving forces personnel.

    Heat added im a ex serviceman just signed up thanks for thread.
    About time! Although I do think 20%across the board should be a given! Not enough respect or appreciation is given to the people that give up their lives &miss countless holidays, birthdays&important times to serve this country&public. (emergency services included)

    Not sure if you're just joking or poorly informed but veterans in the USA have a lot more formal support than those in the uk.
    Most forces, ex and serving are aware of most discounts, however always worth reminding, plenty more here too arrse.co.uk/for…-97

    Shame there isn't an Emergency services thread too



    there was a post a while back about one
    the scheme on this thread is run by blue light card ltd on behalf of MoD, who also run a scheme for emergency services but the range of companies is poor. they're also supported by the sun who use it as a propaganda tool in their support of 'our lads, wahey, we love it.' just like the politicians, they're quick to associate themselves with us when planes fall out of the sky, but they won't hesitate to stitch us up with stories full of lies when it suits their political agenda, and for that reason you're about as likely to find a copy of it in a fire station as you are in liverpool. until they cut their ties with the scum, I and many of my colleagues won't go near the blue light card with a barge pole

    it is a shame that companies aren't pro-active in offering discounts to emergency services, but i've found in my experience that some companies unofficially give something. nandos famously do, as do (some) dominos and subways. because they're franchises, it varies. i've sometimes only got 30% off full price pizza, collection only, but another time we stopped our truck outside dominos in uniform and they gave us the buy one get one free offer (which was available to everyone) and then when the pizzas were ready the manager came out and gave us half of our money back! the subway near my work are cheeky - they only give discount to coppers!
    i know some people don't like to ask for discounts, but I think take what you can get - it's not like we get 6 figure bonuses or a company credit card for personal expenses, and often the person behind the till feels really happy in giving a little something back
    i think part of the reason why is because teachers and NHS staff are pretty worthy too, so it becomes difficult to draw the line, and after a certain point you start eroding your profit margins for a significant chunk of your market. that said, i'm also an NUS registered student and have far more joy getting discount with that. from an objective point of view, i know students have less money, but think those in the emergency services are more worthy of discounts.
    Do we need to start up a megathread of megathreads?
    There was a time when a megathread was defined by the amount of posts and how long it had been running. Not by some numpty typing it in the title....
    I posted this deal 2 months ago, I'm glad to see you're getting more heat than I did.
    bluelightcard.co.uk is for emergency services and nhs
