Blue Light Card

Post by Bearguy » Sun Dec 01, 2019 7:03 pm

Evening all !

Anyone got a blue light card ? Any major benefits to it ??

Also, our local major theatre in the north east have a deal where prison officers get 2 for 1 tickets on selected shows, which would save a few quid as it’s a fortune to start with !

One of my trainee colleagues has one of these and a few others have ordered them, seems they get you money off food pretty much everywhere and other discounts too

I’ve not had the time to look into yet but will get round to it, I know you need your employee number to apply though

I cannot remember exactly how I found it, I think it would have one of the hundreds of times I was looking on the internet for any scrap of information about being a prison officer :slbg: !!!

I remember seeing a sign up in Starbucks that emergency services and NHS staff get money off.

Anyone know of anywhere else or any schemes that offer discounts/benefits for prison officers ?

They have to send it to your establishment so I’ll have to wait until I start
