How Does Cashback Work?

What Is Cashback?

With cashback, you’ll get a percentage of what you spend at select retailers back into your account. It’s as simple and straightforward as it sounds. It’s an easy way to save even more on your everyday essentials, from weekly shopping at your supermarket to meals out and department stores.

What Does Cashback Mean?

Cashback means exactly what you think it does. You get cash back, simple right? That’s the way we want to keep it, there’s no messing about, we want to keep it straightforward so you can save even more.

How To Claim Cashback?

To claim cashback you’ll need to start by signing up for free to Health Service Discounts. Once you’ve signed up simply visit our Cashback Card Hub and register for your card. You’ll need a valid NHS email address to be eligible. In 3 simple steps you can start earning cashback and be on your way to saving even more everyday. Register, load your card and start earning. Working just like a standard debit card, you’ll be able to use the card even at non-participating retailers and make it your main source of spending.

Where Can I Use My NHS Card?

You can use your NHS Cashback Card at over 40 of the biggest retailers. Save at popular fashion stores including Primark, Topshop, River Island and more or grab a bite to eat and save at your favourite restaurants including Pizza Hut. Check out the full list of retailers where you can get cashback. You can save up to 12% at these retailers and get the cash back into your account straight away. We know keeping on top of your money can be a difficult and stressful thing to do, so with the Spree App you can manage your money and cashback account all in one place and even top up on-the-go to make it even easier.

Find out what current members have to say who already use the cashback card to make great savings!

Remember you need to be a member of Health Service Discounts and have a valid NHS email address to be able to get your own Cashback Card. You can sign up for free and gain access to hundreds of amazing discounts on everything from travel to fashion and so much more!

      Hi Denise,

      Unfortunately our cashback card is unavailable to retired members of staff at the moment. We’d love to be able to open it up to more members at some point and appreciate the benefits it would bring, however at the moment we’re unable to do so for legal reasons. We’re working on this and hopefully we’ll be able to include retired members of staff in the future.

      Until then there’s a wide selection of online offers available through our website here: http://www.healthservicediscounts.com

    You need to allow retired NHS staff to apply tor the Cashback card. These guys need the help just as much. You could always use the NHS Pension statement as proof….

    On behalf of all the NHS staff who’s jobs do not qualify or need a NHS email address and indeed have no access to a work computer, I wish to put the following Comment:
    NHS addresses are provided in response to an employee’s job being such that the use of a digital address is needed in the everyday continuance of that job/position.
    In response to my past enquiry into this mater I was told that my IT department would provide me an email and would administer the business of that email on my behalf requiring me to visit the IT dept and have a member of IT access my email to give me any relevant communications, That should be regarded as an unacceptable invasion of privacy an no-one should be willing to follow such an insulting procedure.
    To sum-up, we are told that the discount card is not available without a NHS email and that ‘FOR LEGAL REASONS’ no other form of qualifying documentation is acceptable … !!!
    This highly insulting and disrespectful requirement should be addressed by all staff who are affected by this requirement by way of recording a complaint of intentional and deliberate discrimination because that is what it is:
    It IS discrimination and as such is illegal

      Hi Rod,

      Eligible members are able to join our scheme and access 90% of the discounts without any verification.

      The verification is a stipulation of the retailers, not ourselves. At the moment the card wouldn’t be available to anyone if there wasn’t email verification.

      We are aware that this isn’t an ideal situation and we are working on taking other forms of ID as verification. The card provider needs to make sure their process is fully GDPR compliant before any further verification methods are approved however we are pleased to confirm that we should have something live around the end of March.

      Hi,

      Access to a work email address is required when registering for the Cashback Card as the Cashback Card provider need some way to prove that our members work within the industry they are registering with.

      Once you have access to your work email you will be able to register.
