A Blue Light Card unlocks exclusive discounts for the NHS, emergency services, social care sector, and armed forces, as well as other workers. Here’s where you can get your Blue Light Card discounts.
As a Cedar Care employee, you’re entitled to the Blue Light Card – regardless of your position in the company.
With a Blue Light Card, you can get money off your supermarket food bill, shops online and in store, restaurants, as well as access free tickets to major events all over the country.
The discounts aren’t for the general public but have been specially set up for emergency services, NHS staff, social care workers, and many other qualifying workers.
Where can I use my Blue Light Card?
You can get access to discounts with more than 15,000 local and national retailers and businesses in the UK.
Blue Light Card holders can save money on holidays, cars, days out, fashion, gifts, insurance, phones – there is something for everyone!
More small and large companies and local businesses are added daily. Some of their more popular top deals are from major brands:
- Alton Towers
- Body shop
- Charlotte Tilbury
- Domino’s Pizza
- Go Outdoors
- JD Sports
- New Look
- River Island
And, if you’re planning to book a staycation, check out which is the best Haven park here.
Some discounts can be as low as 2% with Apple (although that works out as a significant saving as they sell more expensive items) with up to 50% off if you eat out at certain restaurants.
How much does a Blue Light Card cost?
The Blue Light Cards are not free, although they don’t cost a lot for the value you get back.
You pay just £4.99, which gives you access to a two year membership.
How do I apply for a Blue Light Card?
When registering, you must select in the section Your service – Social Care, in the section Your Trust division – Care Home, upload a payslip from the last three months and pay £4.99 for a two-year membership.
You can apply for the discount service directly on the Blue Light card site.
You will need your personal details, home address (so they can send you a physical card) and have to show proof that you are a paid employee, volunteer or retiree.
How to renew Blue Light Card?
You can renew your card 30 days before your membership expires. Log into your account and go to the “My Card” section. You will get an email to remind you.
Can a family member use my discount card?
The BLC card is for your personal use and cannot be used by someone else. If you are with them, the retailer may allow the discount.
