Blue Light Card was founded in 2008 with the intention of providing discounts to the Emergency Services and NHS both on the High Street and Online. The Blue Light Card aimed to provide high street discounts on a national basis and provide all members of all services with an equal chance to save no matter what job role or service that they work for.
The first website launched in September 2008 with 100 discounts available to members and provided purely online discounts. In January 2009 the High Street Card was launched providing members with a physical card option that they could take in to store and save directly on goods and services. This again developed when in 2009 the Blue Light Card Cashback scheme launched allowing members to shop at online stores and receive money back as a reward for doing so into a Blue Light Card account. This opened the door to many retailers and saw 400 cashback offers go live at launch.
In July 2009 the Blue Light Card was proudly sponsored by Blockbuster Entertainment who provided High Street Card members with 10 free movie rentals. This saw a surge in membership and gave members real value for money with the Blue Light Card High Street Card. This offer was extended in July 2010 and still runs today with every High Street Card – an offer not available to the general public.
In August 2010 Blue Light Card radically improved its services and approach. With thanks to sponsorship from Three Mobile the Blue Light Card was able to expand and give 130,000 High Street Cards away for free to members of the Emergency Services and NHS across the UK.
September 2010 the Blue Light Card opened its doors to the UK's Armed Forces Personnel and recognised the important work that they do for the UK alongside the Emergency Services and NHS. The Blue Light Card recognised the work of the UK Coastguard service and Prison Service and extended its benefits to these services.
The Blue Light Card wants to make sure that it is benefiting the entire Emergency Services, NHS and Armed Forces. If you do not see your service listed or if you have any suggestions or queries please do not hesitate in contacting us.
