Defence Discount Service
Veterans will benefit from a new scheme offering discounts on the high street.
The MOD has launched a new Defence Discount Service, as part of the Armed Forces Covenant, in recognition of service in the Armed Forces.
THE Defence Discount Service is open to members of the Armed Forces community, including serving and Reserves personnel, Armed Forces veterans, spouses/partners of Service personnel, and bereaved spouses/partners. It is also open to MOD civil servants, members of the Cadet Forces and NATO personnel serving in UK-based posts.
Many high profile companies are engaged with the Defence Discount Service: Vodafone, KFC, Vue Cinemas and a number of major supermarkets, clothing stores and technology companies. They are offering discounts on cars, laptops, supermarket shopping, holidays and mobile phones. The list is growing and it's anticipated that many more companies will now come forward to add their support to those already committed to helping make life a little easier for the Armed Forces Community.
A wide range of discounts and privileges can be accessed online immediately. A privilege card is also a key part of the new Defence Discount Service and later this year it will be made available to members for a small cost, making it easier for people to access discounts in stores and online.
The Defence Discount Service website is now online. To find out more about the Defence Discount Service visit: http://www.defencediscountservice.co.uk/,
