What has happened to the Halfords discount card?

Tried to use my discount card today in Halfords on purchasing a DAB radio aerial. At  the till, it scanned in with a confirmation tone but did not take off any discount, is the discount card we got on joining this forum now void?

The Halfords Discount Card still works but not sure the discount extends to audio equipment and accessories according to their T&Cs.

Incidentally, the existing Halfords Card is only valid for 15% until 31st December 2022 when it will reduce the discount level to 10%

All other stuff is still ok/

I'd not be so sure about 'other stuff'. I got refused discount on a can of tyre inflation repair foam. I was told it wasn't part of 'Motoring' !! ( as it happens it was for my wheel barrow 🤣 )

Before long Halfords will have priced themselves out of the market and will be entered in to the hall of names from the past like Woolworth's and British Home Stores.

If you have a technical/ engineering qualification you may be able to get a Trade card, which will give you a discount of 10 - 20%

 

I tried to bluff my way into one of those cards, didn't work 🤣

I got one in my first year of college...but I did buy a car from the manager of our local branch. :laugh: 

Discounts vary massively.  bulbs were often 50% or more!!

I think that's right.  It's always a mystery what discount you'll get - you don't know until you get to the till.  The last discount I got a few months ago was 19.2% off a car battery.

I just tried to use my discount card and the girl said it was an old card that no longer scanned and I would need to go into the Ford Owners Site and get a discount code !!  Really ?  

It does scan, not only can you hear the till giving out a confirmation tone, but on their screen it states that it has scanned. Now whether you have come foul of an item they simply don't offer the discount on (Like I did), is another matter.

Oh, Halfords staff often are trained to a low standard, which they like to maintain! I speak as someone with a 40+ year career in retail management having lost count of the number of 'customer service' training sessions I have written and given...

... It appears my card may be old and expired. ..

LOL, in that case, in true modern governmental terms, I'd like to make a U turn on my last post! :laughing: Though the comment on 'training' still is valid. My code does indeed end in 071.

I was told by Halfords that they won't accept the cards anymore but they will honor the discount this time only, they also said I would have to contact the owners club for either a replacement card, a new discount code or an app based membership.

this was back in august, it really puts you off buying from them, does anyone else have to stand there for the best part of 15 minutes as the barcode never works?

Any help would greatly appreciated.

Now, when you said you were told by 'Halfords', was this from a spotty Herbert manning the tills as his primary Saturday job, or from someone proper?? :laugh:

Just check your card. Mine didn’t end 071 so was expired. Incidentally I’ve just renewed my club membership so have received another card just the other day so I have a choice of two now. Both end 071.  Remember the 15% ends at the end of the year in favour of 10%. Like everything these days, inflation affected.
