New B&Q trade discount card offers up to 25% discount

Published: 29 April 2008
Card holders entitled to cash back.
B&Q has introduced a special discount card specifically for the trade sector after successful trials in Scotland.

The card entitles holders to cash back, dependent on the types of products they buy, rather than accumulating points in order to receive benefits.

"For the nuts and bolts and other hardware products, customers could benefit from a discount of up to 25%, with a 5% discount offered for building materials," B&Q said in a statement. "There is also a 5% volume rebate for those spending over £1,000 on average for three months."

Tradesmen will also receive a discount on showroom products, such as kitchens or bathrooms.

Alan Forest, national trade manager for B&Q said: "Our trade customers are hugely important to us, which is why we've been listening carefully to their needs and are delighted to introduce our trade discount card."

The trade discount card runs alongside B&Q's trade account card.

AQ you are foolish to publicly publish all your details on a public www, and why respond to an 8 year old post.?

Sort with retailer direct.
