New Search By website feature

New Search By website feature

The new Defence Discount Service adds to members ability to search for discounts and now incorporates a feature that has been a long-standing popular feature of our free mobile app - the Search By feature.

Members of Defence Discount Service can now use the website to search for offers and discounts by Phrase, by company or by category as well as by offer type.  Members could previously search by company via the drop down menu or by category by clicking on the category but the new search by phrase adds a new level to discount searching.

The discount search features have all been pulled into one space to make it simple for members of access.  The search by company, category or phrase can be accessed by Defence Discount Service members via the magnified glass icon which then pulls up all three options.

The search by company allows members to select a company that is offering a discount from the alphabetical list of discount providers.  The search by category allows members to see discounts in a particular category, such as Holidays and Travel discounts.  The phrase feature allows members to input a phrase of a company or item that they may be wishing to receive a discount on. 

Near Me new website feature

Near Me new website feature

The new Defence Discount Service boasts a new feature that has been a long-standing popular feature of our free mobile app - the Near Me feature. 

Members of Defence Discount Service can now use the website to search for offers in their area or any other area of the country that they may be visiting.  Users simply enter the location or postcode and press the GO button and it will plot the stores on the map.  Members can then click on the stores and visit their offer to see more about their company and offers, terms and conditions and other information.

This feature is essential when looking to see where you can use your Defence Privilege Card and displays national retailers as well as local independent retailers that have plotted their store locations.

Defence Discount Service members can find this feature from the drop down offers menu or in the footer of the website once they have logged in.  

If you have not yet applied for your Defence Privilege Card, then this can be applied for under the Privilege Card section on the menu.  The Defence Privilege Card is the vetted discount card of Defence Discount Service, and allows members to show this in stores to redeem high street discounts.  The card is £4.99 for a 5 year membership.
