    OMG I'll be your new best friend lol.

    Do you get to use it on sale days?

    I get all the usual NHS benefits, even though I don't work directly for them.

    Suppose the best perk, was a meeting with a Consultant, who I discussed a small procedure with and told him I was on an 18month waiting list, He did the procedure that afternoon, after our meeting.

    Oh and still have my old Leeds Uni parking pass, which is worth its weight in gold, good to have friends in high places :whistling:

    i work for boots part time, i get 22.5% on anything boots make and 15% on anything else....plus a range of freebies every week...

    A large salary and all the normal benefits that come with it

    Surely the gyms are restricted though, as there's quite a few gyms out there that charge £150 per month?

    My insurance allows me to go to any gym for £8 per month, eurostar for £10 return, unlimited cinema throughout the country for £25 per year and stays at Champney resorts for huge discounts too. ;-)

    no not really. because chocolate gets boring especially when we get a full tin of chocs at least once a day.
