The Countdown Card, a new benefit for EIS members, was issued to all members in late June 2014 in the AGM special issue of the SEJ.

Some members will doubtless have heard of Countdown Card member discounts that have been enjoyed by NUT members and others for over 40 years. In these times when every penny counts the benefits offered by Countdown are more valuable than ever. 

EIS has teamed up with Countdown to ensure that all of our members enjoy these benefits. Your Countdown shopping discount card can be used to access thousands of money-saving offers across Scotland and the UK to save £100s per year. 

You can now access over 16,000 local offers in your area such as takeaways, hairdressers and drycleaners, together with 100s of great national savings on holidays, discounted gift cards at popular high street stores, supermarkets and restaurants. 

Plus, you can even earn cash back while you shop and also save up to 90% on famous and luxury brands of watches, jewellery, cosmetics, gifts, household goods and much more from the Countdown Stores.
