  • The Cashback Card is a pre-paid debit card - NOT a credit card. The Discounts for Teachers Cashback Card can be used anywhere that accepts the Visa® Acceptance Mark, just like a debit card.

    There are no credit checks when signing up for the card, making the registration process quick and straightforward. Once you have completed the activation steps, you can then start spending and earning cashback with your card. The initial top-up for the card will be requested within the registration process, and the minimum amount is £5.00.

    After the registration process, the minimum top-up amount will be £10.00, and the maximum will be £1,000. You can top up your card securely via your account, which can be found at www.discountsforteachers.co.uk/card. Alternatively, you may also use the Spree App, which you can download from the App store. Simply search for the Spree app in the App Store and download.

    Once you have topped up, you will be able to see your balance and spend immediately. It is the same as using a typical debit card, except you earn cashback when you spend. Amazing!

  • Currently, the Cashback Card is only available to employees currently working within the Education sector. This is because you must have access to a work email address to validate your credentials as an Education Sector employee.

  • Currently, our cashback card is not available to retired members of staff. We would love to expand our service and open the card to former staff, but we cannot do so at this time due to existing supplier arrangements. We are working hard on this and hope to include retired members of staff in the future.

    In the meantime, you can browse through our selection of offers that are available on our website. As a member, you can make fantastic savings.

Registering for a Card

  • Of course! If you are someone that works in the Education Sector and have a current work email address, you can sign up and start earning once you are in receipt of your card.

  • Unfortunately, you must have a valid/current work email address to sign up. If you are employed in the Education Sector and do not have a work email address, please contact your HR / IT department to acquire one.

  • The cashback card is free for the first 12 months. When you register, there is an initial top-up of £5 that is required. After the 12 months have gone by, there is an annual fee of £2.99 per card.

  • Yes. You can get an additional card with your partner or anyone in the same household aged 13 or over.

  • The way additional cards work is through one shared account. Both cards will be linked to one account, which means both cardholders will share one balance and can top-up.

  • After completing the registration process, you should receive your cashback card (approximately) within 7 working days. However, please allow up to 14 days to receive the card.

    It is worth noting that this time frame also applies to reissued cards that have expired or have been lost/stolen. If you do not receive your card after the 14-day waiting period, please contact the Cashback Card Support team on 01908 303564.

  • There are no credit checks or lengthy application process when signing up for the cashback card. All you have to do is fill in an online form.

    Please note that we may use the Personal information provided to carry out anti-fraud checks. The personal information provided may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency - who may keep a documented record.

  • Know Your Customer (KYC) is the process used to identify and verify our member’s identity. We use this to ensure we are compliant with Anti-Money Laundering Laws (AML) and protect our system from accidentally facilitating criminal activity.

Using your Card

  • You can use your card anywhere that accepts the Visa Acceptance mark - which is accepted at 36 million retailers worldwide. Just like a Visa Debit card, the cashback card can be used at qualifying retailers. The only difference is you earn cashback.

  • There are no transactional fees when you use the Discounts for Teachers Cashback Card in the UK. Please check out our Terms and Conditions to learn more about charges when using the card outside of the UK.

  • Our cashback card can be used when shopping online and in-store. However, please note that some of our retailer partners do not offer cashback when purchasing online.

  • To earn cashback when using the card, you must ensure the card is topped with funds. Then, when you use the card to purchase a product online or instore at our retail partners, you will start to accumulate cashback.

    Cashback typically takes 5-7 days and will be automatically credited to your account. The only exception is Sainsbury’s. Due to their process when calculating cashback, Sainsbury’s cashback system can often take longer - typically 3-5 weeks. We will always credit your account as soon as possible - where possible. Once the cashback has been credited to your account, it will be added to your available balance upon your next top up.

  • With our cashback card, you can earn up to 12% cashback at qualifying retailers

  • You still receive loyalty points, such as nectar points, when using the cashback card - giving you more value when shopping.

  • The cashback card can be used abroad at places that display the Visa Acceptance Mark. However, please note that a 2.5% foreign exchange fee will be applied. Check out T&C’s to learn more.

  • The cashback card cannot be used to make cash withdrawals at ATMs, for purchasing foreign currency, cashback at tills or cash advances.

  • Gambling with the cashback card and adult websites are restricted. You can refer to our Terms and Conditions to learn more.

  • Unfortunately, cashback cannot be earned for petrol / non-petrol items sold at petrol stations.

  • We may add or remove a retail partner from time to time. However, we always aim to offer a comprehensive range of brands where you can earn cashback.

    Unfortunately, we cannot rule out any change governed by market forces. Therefore, we will endeavour to try and maintain our current rates whenever we can. You can always head over to the Cashback Hub, as this maintains an up-to-date listing and cashback rates.
