Being a member of the Guild gives you access to many discounts that can save you £100's if not £1000's each year!
Our Discount Card Scheme!
Your discount card offers notable discounts at over 22,000 businesses across the UK. They apply to all aspects of your life and savings vary from 4% off at Supermarkets through to 50% off at the RAC. You can save 7% plus off many High Street retailers including Argos, Boots, BHS, Curry's and PC World, and typically you will get 8-12% off at the Apple store.
Because there are such a huge number of suppliers involved there are several different ways to get your discount. The method to use is detailed against each suppliers name, though in many cases you can simply pre-load your membership card with money, and an instant 7% extra is applied. You then simply present it at the stores to make your purchase(s).
Don't forget that the discounts are also bespoke in that you can also request (through a simple one page form) any local business that you use regularly to join the scheme (be they restaurants or camera shops).
For more details please see the Love2shop website. Cards are provided in your membership pack once you have joined. Upon your card's expiry date, please contact the office at email@example.com for a replacement.
If your card has expired, or it has been lost, and had a balance please contact love2shop directly using their contact details.

Their policies are straight-forward with no listing of equipment or clauses that say your equipment isn't covered after 7pm when out of the home like some companies do. They also have a fabulous no hassle 'pay-out' record should the need arise and a friendly, supportive and dedicated manager to look after our interests (Steve Hewlett).

The discount they give members is significant, including 20% off 'all-risks' equipment cover (and unlimited Annual Worldwide cover for Photographic & Technical Equipment is included with that plus lots of other enhancements).
