    Anyone recieved a letter about their trade discount card and the new TradePoint counters ?
    I just wondered if we are to lose our earned discount if it doesn't reach the monthly limit for a refund?

    The letter is a bit ambiguous.

    i was wondering this today, though ive not recieved the letter yet. I cant remember why but i cant be bothered with tradepoint, but the discount card was a good thing.

    Everything you buy through these tradecounters goes on their database linked to your card with your details. This databased will be accessed by the tax office.

    Think about it.

    There's no discount using Tradepoint, they said it's because of their trade prices...

    In these hard times don't bother with B&Q use your local builders merchant and pay cash you will beat B&Q prices every time and if they don't want to play ball take your trade elsewhere ..."Cash is King ".

    Well I got aletter from Trade Point today, they are holding onto any discount earned over the previous 12 months if it's not worth £50.

    I have £46 so I am effectively being forced to buy something to earn £4 in discount to get my £46.

    Can you imagine Tesco doing this and getting away with it ??

    No telephone number on the letter to call them either, B & Q ?? more like Pee & Poo :-(((((

    I quite like the new set up. Good products, in stock ( unlike Screwfix TC's) no more oldies clogging up the tills. All in all 9/10 so far!

    B&Q tradecounters and screwfix use the same catalogue.
    They are the same company.

    They are both separate trading companies owned and run by Kingfisher. The catalogues are NOT the same and the big difference is B&Q keep things in stock!

    The catalogues are the same,even the photography is identical. The B&Q one is in a different format though.
