Starbucks has joined forces with Blue Light Card and Defence Discount Service to give back to everyday heroes, including nurses, fire fighters, police officers and the Armed Forces, by offering a 10% discount off their total bill (excluding Starbucks gift cards) from 14 March 2018.

All members of the UK Emergency Services, NHS, Armed Forces and military veterans can sign up for a Blue Light Card or Defence Discount Service, with the Blue Light Card and Defence Privilege Cards costing £4.99 for a 5-year membership. Card members can then enjoy their 10% discount with friends and family at all Starbucks stores across the UK and Ireland, by simply showing their card, or proof of application, at the till point.

Robert Lynch, vice president operations, Starbucks EMEA, said: “We’ve always championed those who have done brilliant jobs in the community, so it’s time to thank our everyday heroes who are devoted to helping our communities by partnering with Blue Light Card and the Defence Discount Service. We hope those in the Emergency Services, NHS and Armed Forces can take some time to relax and enjoy their discount with friends and family.”

Tom Dalby, Managing Director, Blue Light Card and Head of Defence Discount Service said: “We are proud to welcome Starbucks to Blue Light Card and Defence Discount Service.  It is great to see Starbucks recognising the hard work that the UK’s Emergency Services, NHS and Armed Forces do within our communities and it is their way of saying thank you. Our members love saving on the high street, and all the coffee fans will be very pleased to hear that Starbucks is involved.”
