Discounted Shopping

Significant Savings On Your Everyday Shopping With BTU

Using the Union’s Portfolio shopping scheme regularly can save you hundreds of pounds each year, far more than the cost of your membership!

Administered entirely by the Union, the Portfolio shopping scheme is exclusive to BTU members. We’ve negotiated significant discounts of between 3% and 8% across hundreds of brands, from clothes and homeware to holidays and meals out.

For example, for every £100 you spend in Tesco, the Bonus Points you receive will be equivalent to a saving of £4. If you have a family and spend, say, £100 per week on shopping, the discount adds up to a saving of over £200 across the year!

How does it work?

When you place an order, we send you a reloadable payment card which you can use in-store to pay for your shopping. You can choose either to have the discount applied when you place your order or you can save your discount as points to be redeemed at a later stage. Some members like to save their points throughout the year and redeem them at Christmas – that’s the Christmas food shop covered!

The cards are branded with the retailer’s logo, so they make excellent gifts too.

Monthly orders take the hassle out of ordering

You can place one-off orders with us, as and when it suits you, or you can set up a regular monthly order, paid via Direct Debit. This is a popular way for members to pay for their weekly supermarket shopping.

On either 1st, 20th or 24th of the month (you choose), we will credit your reloadable card with your order value. You can suspend your order if you’re going on holiday or change your order with ease.

Using the Scheme

Here’s what one of our long-standing Portfolio scheme users had to say:

“According to my records, from August 2014 up until August 2019, I have saved £1739.94 (clear of costs), by using this system to buy our food and other goods. A significant amount bearing in mind there are only two of us.

I knew about the scheme for a number of years before starting and have kicked myself for being so slow to join!”

To place an order or to set up a monthly Direct Debit, simply call us on 01234 262868. Lines are open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm.
