As a member of IfL, you can access our benefits and rewards programme, IfL Rewards. IfL has teamed up with Reward Compass to bring this new membership benefit - your one-stop shop for a range of lifestyle discounts and cashback offers.
IfL Rewards provides you with access to a website where you can access over 6,000 lifestyle offers and discounts to help you save money at high street retailers and on your supermarket shopping.
Sign up to IfL Rewards
IfL Rewards costs just £17 per year. If you choose to join IfL Rewards at the same time as you renew your membership, you can enjoy the reduced rate of £14. Savings can be substantial, for example, you could save £5 in every £100 you spend at a leading supermarket.
Members will be able to sign up to IfL Rewards again following the launch of IfL's new website.
How you can save
Here’s a quick guide to all the great ways to save with through IfL Rewards:
Online discounts applied after purchase
Cashback discounts are paid back on the total amount, after you have made a purchase. The amount is then sent back to your cashback account or to a number of cashback cards, after the purchase has been processed.
Discounted gift cards
Discounts applied before purchase
These work just like normal gift cards except that you can use them again and again. Discounts can be claimed on the credit you load onto the card. You can reload some cards multiple times (at a discount) and others you simply spend like cash.
Money saving card
Offers related to your location
This card gives you access to a multitude of offers at local independent businesses, depending on where you happen to be. There are over 4,000 participants throughout the UK, including independent businesses and retailers. To see which ones are close to where you are, simply enter your current location postcode in the search box online and follow the instructions. You can also download the app from the site for your smart phone to see where you can save.
Applied online at point of sale
We are all familiar with these types of offers, such as 2 for 1, or 10% off. You can claim these discounts at the online checkout. These discounts are either applied automatically through the Reward Compass website when you enter an exclusive code provided in the offer description.
Exclusive one-off sales
Once they’re gone, they’re gone
Privileges are member only, one-off exclusive sales that can give additional discounts, of up to 70 per cent on selected quality brands. To make the most of these offers, log in and register to receive your alerts from Reward Compass every Monday.
No need for internet access
These offers are not just for those who have internet access. Many offline offers are also available, for example through text, phone or even cut-out coupons, once you have registered online.
The Gift Card Store
Visit the Gift Card Store through the IfL Rewards website, where you can purchase your gift cards and gift vouchers from a number of high street retailers.
The Gift Card Store can save you money with exclusive discounts on the credit you load, so don’t forget to check if the card is reloadable and you can log back in to top it up whenever you want to go shopping.
Alternatively, log in to the IfL Rewards website and take advantage of the best possible in-store deals from your favourite high street shops and supermarkets. You can use some of the gift cards in conjunction with store sales and in-store promotions, saving you even more money.
How does it work?
Just like buying vouchers at a discount, a reloadable card is a re-usable voucher you can use again and again. Reloadable cards are ideal for all those regular shopping trips, whether it’s your weekly supermarket shop, your favourite fashion retailer, a long-term DIY project or even discounts on your holidays.
To use the reloadable card, simply:
- Purchase your card
- Load your balance onto your chosen card and receive the discount at the point of purchase. For example, at a 5 per cent discount on a Sainsbury’s card, you only have to pay £95 for £100 worth of funds (postage and credit card fees apply).
- Once you receive your card, activate it in the ‘My Account’ section of the Voucher Store. If you activate your card by 11.00 Monday to Friday, your balance will be ready to spend within 24 hours.
- Reload your card whenever you like.
