Top 7 Tips To Get a Black Friday NHS Discount

If you’ve never been shopping on Black Friday – or if you’d rather sidestep the stampede when those shop doors open – this guide is for you. Here’s our top 7 tips to get a Black Friday NHS Discount.

Online shopping is the best way to get a taste of the action without the droves of bargain hungry shoppers pushing, shoving and taking the last iPad.

2. Write your wish list before Black Friday

With so many people shopping on Black Friday it makes sense to go in with a game plan. Make a shopping list of the items you really want. Make a note of the retailers that are selling them.

It’s also a good idea to come up with an alternate in case something you want is sold out. Bookmark our deals into your own Black Friday folder on your website browser so you can access them super quick on the day.

3. Best Things to Buy on Black Friday

It’s often said that the best things to buy on Black Friday is Electronics! Think iPhones, Televisions, Video Game Consoles – those larger items that make great Christmas presents.

It’s also a good time to upgrade your phone or laptop. Think big.

You can always pick smaller items up in the sales that typically follow Black Friday on the high street (with the extra bonus of our discount card if you’re NHS staff).

Electronics are often reported as the first things that sell out on Black Friday.

Money Saving Tips

Protect Yourself from the Energy Price Rise this October

Protect yourself from the energy price rise this October. The time to switch your energy provider is now.

The wholesale prices that energy companies pay are on the rise; this means that your domestic prices will go up during your next billing period.

You will also see exclusive energy deals end this October due to price hikes.

That’s why our Head of Partnerships, Luke Ince, has created a special NHS Energy Switch deal for our members. He tells us:

“Every year thousands of NHS staff do not switch energy supplier. They end up paying way over the odds on standard variable tariffs. Switching is simple and you can confirm your switch in just a few minutes. By moving to one of our exclusive tariffs you could save up to £537*. The current deals are fixed which means you will avoid any price hikes like the ones coming in October.”

Understanding the price cap

Another fluctuation in energy prices that you need to be aware of is the price cap on standard tariffs. Ofgem will be introducing the price cap on standard tariffs by the end of December.

While this means that consumers will be getting a fair deal it is not necessarily the best deal. You could still be paying over the odds. Standard tariffs are typically the most expensive.

The message is don’t rest on your laurels, the sooner you switch energy providers the more chance you have of getting the cheapest deal on the market; even when the price cap comes into play.

Switching is easy

If you’ve never switched energy providers before, it couldn’t be easier. Simply find an old bill that shows your projected or actual usage. Click on the deal and follow through the instructions to enter your postcode and current supplier.

Once you’ve inputted details about your current supplier, run the comparison and choose the right deal for you. Then simply switch and start saving!

 

Once you’ve switched you don’t need to tell your existing supplier. Just take meter readings on the date you switch and keep a safe record of them.

The big six energy providers will be putting up their prices for a second time this year very soon. This rise should hit most consumers on their next bills. There’s still time for you to switch, get yourself the cheapest deal on the market before the tariffs and the weather changes!

Compare your energy in some simple steps and check how much you could be saving with NHS Energy Switch. 

*Our switching partner energyhelpline.com compares all publicly available energy tariffs under the OFGEM Confidence Code. 10% of customers switching their gas and electricity bills through services provided by our switching partner between 1st Feb 2016 and 16th Nov 2017 saved £537 or more. Survey of over 100,000 switches.

Help Nurses in Need

Our healthcare workers push themselves the extra mile – it’s the reason we exist. We want to help nurses in need and we need you!

They might be our heroes but we also know that healthcare workers are only human and sometimes they need support.

That’s why we, the Health Service Discounts team, are going the extra mile uphill to conquer Snowden – the highest mountain in Wales – for Cavell Nurses’ Trust.

For 4 years we have been supporting Cavell Nurses’ Trust – a fantastic national charity that helps nurses, midwives, and healthcare assistants. They exist for those who find themselves in need of financial help and support.

As well as practical advice the charity offers one-off financial grants for things like living expenses, white goods, respite care and aids for daily living for those with disabilities.

They also offer regular assistance when illness or low income causes exceptional hardship.

Over this period our lottery, that has been specifically set up to support Health Service Staff, has given away over £134,000 in prizes and raised over £112,000 for Cavell Nurses’ Trust.

Sponsor us at our Just Giving page

We want to support Cavell Nurses Trust in every way possible. As a team we are taking part in their 10K For Nurses challenge.

Keep an eye out on our blog for an update after 13th of October. With your help our challenge to climb Snowdon at an elevation of 1,085 metres will be complete.

We’d love it if you and your colleagues would support this great cause by donating on our Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/we-are-discounts

A small amount really does help those Healthcare workers who are in need:

£10 Pays travel costs for a nurse suffering from cancer to attend a hospital appointment

£25 Helps a healthcare assistant on a low income buy school uniform for their child

£50 Helps pay heating costs for a retired midwife who’s recovering from illness

£500 Helps pay emergency rent for a nurse fleeing domestic abuse

If you would like to find out more about the great work Cavell Nurses Trust do you can visit their website: https://www.cavellnursestrust.org/

In the meantime, wish us luck, and please donate what you can to this worthy cause.
