Shopping Gift Card Scheme
Do you regularly shop at John Lewis, Waitrose, Tesco or Sainsbury?
Raise money for the school PTA without spending an extra penny and get a free bonus voucher too!
CLESA PTA raised £4,441 in the last academic year 2018/19 from our gift card scheme through which we earn commission of up to 5% by selling John Lewis, Tesco and Sainsbury’s gift cards to parents. This accounted for 23% of the total money raised.
We earn 4% from Sainsbury’s and John Lewis sales and 5% from Tesco. However, every year we lose families when they leave year 6 so we always need new families to sign up and keep raising money in such an easy way.
Simply set up a standing order. If you do internet banking, setting up a standing order online is very easy. All you need are the following details:
Account Name: CLESA Voucher
Account Number: 00017568
Sort Code: 40-52-40
Payee Reference: Your Name
Start Date: The 15th day of whatever month you wish to start.
Amount: How much you want to buy each month.
Then email: email@example.com telling us:
- which shop
- amount of standing order
- your mobile number.
It all adds up, doesn’t cost you anything more than the face value of the gift cards, and if you sign up to £250 a month or more you will receive a free bonus voucher as a thank you for joining the scheme!
If you are an existing member of the scheme you will also receive the bonus gift card if you increase your standing order to £250 a month!
You will receive £10 for a Tesco standing order, and £15 for a John Lewis one. They will be given to you with your first month’s gift cards.
Why don’t you join in?
- £150 could be raised each year by every family that sets up a standing order of £250 per month.
- The gift cards we sell are identical to those sold in the shops so they’re perfect for using for the weekly shop in Tesco, Waitrose or Sainsbury’s.
- John Lewis gift cards can be used in-store or online at both John Lewis and Waitrose.
- Tesco and Sainsbury’s gift cards can be used in-store only and are topped up by us mid-month to spend any at any time. The value of your shopping is taken off leaving the remainder for the next shop.
How it works
- This can be done at any time in the school year. Once the standing order has started you can start collecting your gift cards.
- Gift cards can also be bought on an ad-hoc basis and paid for by cheque (e.g. for furniture purchases, Christmas gifts etc).
