BECTU have an enormous range of discount options, from supermarkets to holidays. We’ve done some back-of-beermat maths and figure as a single person you can easily save £450 each year – with new/returning members’ fees at £120 that means you really will be better off. Membership after the first year is typically 1% of your associated income, but this is capped at £400 per year, so there are still savings to be made. If you’re feeding a family those supermarket savings can rack up very nicely.
