Your Booths Card FAQs
Here you will find the answers to all the frequently asked questions about Your Booths Card.
Newspaper Benefit Changes
Why are you changing the newspaper offer?
Following the Booths card relaunch in 2020 we have focused the card on offering more everyday value, especially through the 5% reward benefit. We want to continue this and offer more everyday value in other areas of the store therefore we are changing to a cardholder newspaper offer across the full week with no minimum spend. This will appeal to twice as many cardholders including those doing smaller shops and shopping in the week.

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?

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.
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.”
