I emailed them to ask why I only get 1% and got this reply:

Thank you for your email.



Please be advised that the 5% discount on Co-op branded products is a members benefit offered by the Co-operative Group society. This benefit is available to C-op Group members only within Co-op Group stores. Co-op Group have a different blue branding to differentiate themselves from regional societies.



As an independent society, Central England Co-op has its own membership and reward scheme offering 1% return on purchases made within our stores.



I trust this helps clarify the differences.



Kind Regards,


Katie Halley
Membership Advisor

Central England Co-operative Limited
Thats interesting, I thought the Co-op's nationally came under the same scheme... :eh:
Having read this I now remember I had not seen the 5% plus 1% banner in the local Co-ops but I had seen them in the Southwold Co-op (the town is in my District Council area but no longer in my Parliamentary constiuency so not far away).

Will make sure we buy our 2 jars of coffee in Southwold instead of getting one in our regular shops at the local Co-op.

I know I live in the East of England but the Co-ops in most of Norfolk and in most of the far north of Suffolk are part of the Central England Co-op. But go a few miles down the road and you will be shopping at the East of England Co-op. We did have one of their shops in the far North West of the town but that has closed.

And we have 3 Co-op funeral director's in the town, 2 are Eastern Co-op and one is National Co-op funerals.

Wish the local shops were Eastern Co-op because "Earn dividend points - Members earned 2p back for every £1 spent since 2010" Double what I get from a far bigger group :thumbdown:

With all these closures and lay-offs there is obviously something going on or just about to happen - but what???

Never hold on to a coupon. Use it or give as a present to someone who will use it
