Asda has announced a brand new discount for certain workers to get a 10% discount in all stores across the UK.
NHS, emergency services, social services and social care workers, as well as members of the Armed Forces, will be able to take advantage of the discount if they have a Blue Light Card.
A Blue Light Card provides those in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector and armed forces with discounts at retailers.
The 10% Asda discount includes George and Optical, and is open to UK residents aged 16 or over, though it is only available in-store.
It cannot be redeemed on any of the following: Asda Tyres, fuel, alcohol, tobacco, lottery products, gift vouchers and cards, formula milk, cash-back, fireworks, online games and instant tickets, photo printing, saver stamps, postage stamps, ‘top-up’ mobile phone cards, any other online financial services and insurances, or pharmacy and separate concessions.
Blue Light card holders will also need to provide proof of ID which will be verified at checkout to validate they are the Blue Light card holder.
