Your Booths Card FAQs
Here you will find the answers to all the frequently asked questions about Your Booths Card.
What is the new Booths card?
The new Booths card will reward, inspire and treat our cardholders.
Why have you changed your card benefits?
We felt the time had come to overhaul your Booths card and introduce something relevant to what you, our customers want today. Our customer feedback told us that our current Booths card offer had little appeal, didn’t reward loyalty and lacked opportunities to save consistently. We have listened and worked with a group of our customers to offer something new, exciting and more rewarding. Most importantly we have introduced more opportunities to save money and reward our loyal customers.
Do I need a new card?
Your existing Booths card will transfer over and work with the new benefits so you don’t need to worry about getting a new card.
Do I need to sign up to access the new benefits?
If you already have a Booths card account you will automatically be transferred and can start enjoying the new benefits. You will not need to do anything and your existing card will transfer over. However we encourage you to log into your account here or call our Booths card helpline on 0800 221 8707 Monday to Friday between 8.30am to ensure your details are correct.

The 5% Reward
How does the 5% reward work?
You will earn a 5% reward on purchases of qualifying products in selected categories. 5% of the purchase price will be added to your Booths card account. When your account balance reaches £5, you will be rewarded with a £5 voucher to spend in store. The vouchers will be distributed on a quarterly basis and go up in increments of £5. The vouchers will be sent to the address associated with your account.
How do I check my balance?
How do I find out which products are included in the 5% reward offer?
Please look out for the following symbol
next to all qualifying product in store. The qualifying categories are:
Food: Frozen Food, Soft Drinks, Cereals, Preserves, Tinned Soups, Tinned Fish, Veg, Meat and Fruit, Tea and Coffee, Condiments, Home Baking, International Foods (excluding Rafi’s concessions), Biscuits, Confectionery, Ambient Free From, Ambient Desserts, Oils and Vinegars and Long Life Milk.
Non-Food: Pet Food, Laundry, Hardware, Toiletries, Household, Baby Care (excluding Baby Milk), Paper, Tissue, Outdoor – BBQ, Fuel, Car Care, Hosiery and Medicines.
The products I buy regularly aren’t included in the 5% reward. Why am I not being rewarded?
The products included in the 5% reward benefit have been chosen based on customer feedback and cover a wide selection available at our stores.
Why can’t you give me 5% back straight away at the till?
Like other loyalty schemes, customers like to be able to build up a pot of money based on their loyalty and receive this as a voucher to spend in store at a later date.
How and when will I receive vouchers?
We will issue vouchers quarterly through the post. If you have reached £5 in your account balance, you will be rewarded and receive a voucher through the post. Your first set of vouchers will be posted in December 2020.
I’ve moved house, how can I make sure my address is correct so the vouchers go to my new house?
I forgot my Booths card, can I add my receipt to my account at a later date?
Unfortunately you cannot add any missed receipts to your 5% reward balance. Ensure you swipe your card or give your card number to the colleague at the till every time you shop to keep building your 5% reward balance.
How do I choose to request my rewards go to charity instead of myself
Can I alternate between donating to charity and receiving the vouchers myself?
Yes please ensure you keep your account up to date. You can change your preference up until the rewards collection cut-off date for the next voucher release. This information can be found by logging into the website.
Why have you chosen the Foodbank as your chosen charity?
Commitment to supporting our local communities is an important part of Booths ethos, and a key element of this is our food bank scheme.
Pioneered by our very own Colin Porter, we’re partnered with an assortment of local charities from donation hubs, who distribute donations to where they’re needed, to kitchens who can make use of our surplus food. A selection of our partners even work from within the stores themselves, in space reserved for them in our warehouses. Colin says:
“Supporting anybody who is in need is core to the Booths values and we want to help more people and families who are going through challenging times. Homelessness, financial issues or just circumstances that have fallen upon you can make the basics in life a challenge and I am personally delighted and proud to say; we are going to help make a difference to local people and families.”

Removal of Existing Benefits
Why are you no longer offering a free takeaway drink?
We want the Booths card to have universal and wider appeal amongst our customers. Our customers have been telling us the current card lacked opportunities to save consistently across the store and this is what they wanted to see with a loyalty scheme from Booths. We have therefore invested our loyalty scheme in wider areas of the stores to allow us to reward more customers.
Why are you no longer offering half price hot drinks in the café?
We felt the time had come to overhaul your Booths card and introduce something which is relevant to what you, our customers want today. Our customers have been telling us that our current Booths card offer had little appeal, didn’t reward loyalty and lacked opportunities to save consistently. We have listened and worked with a group of our customers to offer something new, exciting and more rewarding. Most importantly we have introduced more opportunities to save money and reward our loyal customers.
Why have you increased the spend on the newspaper to £25, it used to be £15.
We wanted to keep this benefit alongside the 5% reward and in order to do this, we have had to the increase spend.
