Parcelforce discount

A special offer just for Christmas: until 31 December 2014, Royal Mail Group employees can get 15% off our UK and selected international services. All you need to do is take your parcel to your local depot and show your employee identification card. 

Alternatively, you can go to parcelforce.com or call 03448 004466 and quote promo code DEC. If it is more convenient to send at your local Post Office branch, just quote promo code DEC15. You can use these codes again and again and share with friends and family so they can save too. 

This offer excludes globalvalue and globaleconomy.

Lifestyle discounts

We have increased the number of discounts available to employees on a wide range of lifestyle items covering:

  • High street vouchers - up to 17% off at more than 130,000 stores across the UK, through retailer vouchers and reloadable cards
  • Online discount codes to save money on specific retailers’ websites
  • Chance to earn cashback as you spend
  • Travel and attractions - up to 14% off package holidays, discounts on accommodation, flights, airport parking, travel insurance, car hire, theme parks and days out - saving up to 50%

  • Utilities and motoring – savings on gas and electricity, insurance, breakdown cover, driving lessons and more.

Childcare vouchers

Royal Mail Group employees can save tax and National Insurance by paying for their childcare via the childcareplus scheme.

You choose the amount to be deducted from your salary which won't have tax or National Insurance deducted from it. The amount you choose can then be used to pay for your childcare via the childcareplus scheme.

Cycles

We’ve expanded the current cycle2work scheme with Halfords so that you can now choose bikes up to a value of £1,000 and enjoy a 10% discount*.

We’ve added a new cycle scheme (cycleplus) which allows you to select bikes from a range of other bike suppliers, not just Halfords, whilst enjoying a 5% discount*.  Again bikes can be chosen up to the value of £1,000.

Royal Mail Group employees can save tax and National Insurance by using these schemes to obtain a bike.

*before any financial arrangement fee
