Have you got an Iceland Bonus Card?
We have only had ours for about a year and it has been a great addition.
It is really easy to get an Iceland Bonus Card and there are no minimum spend limits. Just ask next time you are in store. The assistant will be able to issue you with a temporary card immediately and you will be able to use it straight away.
To obtain your permanent card, you will need to register online. Again, this is really easy to do and you will receive your card within a couple of weeks. You can, of course, continue to use your temporary card in the meantime, so you won’t miss out on any offers. We were also sent a very handy miniature version which can be attached to your key ring.
So, what are the benefits of an Iceland Bonus Card?
WIN – when you swipe your card in-store you are entered into a monthly competition. Unfortunately, we have not won anything so far, but you need to be in it, to win it, as they say!
SAVE – You will receive regular emails from Iceland and be the first to hear of any exclusive offers they have. For example, during the run up to Christmas Iceland were discounting certain brands. I was pleased to see an email from them with the offer for Aunt Bessie’s Yorkshire Puddings for only 50p per pack and picked up two, as I was very near my local Iceland at the time.
It’s also a great way to receive free food, again via email offers that they send you. In the past we have had free pizza and free ice cream. Recently I received another email. This time we could choose from free vegetables or free frozen dessert. It was a really tough choice – ahem – and we chose the dessert! The next time we shopped there the till automatically printed out our voucher and we were able to select a free frozen dessert to the value of £2 and this is what we picked:
You can even save cash on your card. When shopping, all you need to do is tell the cashier how much you would like to save on your card. Imagine saving just £2 per week between now and next Christmas, you could have almost £100 to spend. You can, however, spend it at any time and don’t have to wait for Christmas. In addition, for every £25 you save on your card, Iceland will add £1 absolutely free!
As Iceland now have an online shopping facility, you can even use your bonus card online in exactly the same way and you can save money onto the card by clicking ‘Top Up’ in Manage your Account. To use the balance it is even easier. Each time you spend online, at checkout you will be able to choose to ‘spend’ some or all of your balance towards the total of your shopping.
Imagine how easy Christmas, or indeed any occasion, would be if you saved online each week. Then ordered your food online, ‘spent’ your saved balance (which may even cover it all) and had it delivered to your door. See this post where I had a 'Stress Free Christmas Dinner' by making the most of frozen food and not having to spend ages washing, chopping and making the different elements. It was delicious too and I will definitely be making the most of frozen food next year. In fact some of the foods have become regulars on our menu.
