(Forces) Discounts and such... put them here

You can undo old style Yale locks by sliding it through the gap...probably.

You might want to get a copy of HM Forces Discount Catalogue, it'll tell you that you can get 10% off at Milletts etc.

I know a soldier can get 10% discount on some service station Burger Kings. But what other advantages come with a MOD 90?
also goes for the newsagents at said service stations, shame it does not extend to the fuel as well :? :? :? :?

Don't forget indulgence flights- I hear they're doing great deals on fly-drives to Basrah at the moment. ;) (Snag is that you have to demostrate that you can pay for you and yours to get back to Blighty if the Vickers Funbus gets re-tasked or goes U/S. But don't worry chaps, you know ASCOT- that never happens. :? )

If you're Spam-side it can work wonders. Especially the Theme Parks, Vegas, hotels, car rental etc. (Just tell them you're working in the US, don't say you're just a tourist.) I'm sure the cousins could fill you in on shopping etc.

Accompanying the missus shopping at the weekend, i was pleasantly surprised to be given 10% forces discount in a good clothes shop in Aldershot. It got me thinking, why do the unemployed and students get discounts and bonuses from cinemas to fast food joints all over the country and not nearly enough businesses and shops offer them to the forces??? I realise that the unemployed and students don't have tons of cash in general, but in the current climate, it would be a nice gesture to servicemen and women, better than a yellow ribbon round a tree anyway. :roll:

My missus and i find it pays to ask wherever you shop as most places do. Now if i could just persuade Sainsburys :D :D

To my eternal shame, I ended up being dragged by Mrs Sticky to a shopping centre near Swindon. There I discovered that a book of money off vouchers awaits all those who can produce a MOD90 at the information desk.

My first purchase was a balaclava to hide the embarrassment of being caught in Swindon in daylight and out of a car. :oops:

Its not such a daft idea! After all, they are always on the news crowing about profits, if a small shop in Aldershot can do it, why not a massive company. :?: :?: :twisted:

Good to hear that Dave but chances are you probably still paid 20-30% over the tops due to it being PC World....
