The T&C's for CUK and BC are the same, you need your card and that months voucher and it only applies to cycle stuff.
Of course Halfords being Halfords, either some of the staff don't know or can't be bothered, I've had the discount recently without showing card or voucher, I just asked, started getting the card out of my wallet and they were already asking for the payment. It was for tools that could be used on a bike but were not cycle specific, I didn't want to make it too easy for them.

The BC deal changed a few years ago (maybe 3 or 4) before that it was just a discount on "any purchase" at Halfords (& didn't exclude sale items either).

Is that recent experience? Yes it used to be the way things were done. I'm guessing things have changed, both for BC & Cycling UK, because it was too easy for lapsed members to carry on getting the discounts. The old BC discount used to be much wider too - you could use it for car stuff & sale items. I once bought some car floor mats that were in a sale AND got a BC discount!


Last time was about 3 weeks ago when I bought some disc pads for a job at my shop (the trade supplier was out of stock) - he did look at the card validity date. There was a laminated card beside the till with about 10 barcodes which I assume were for different classes of purchase or discount - he just scanned my product and one of the codes.

I ordered some cycling bits 2 days ago from the Halfords website when they had a 10% off flash sale. On collection today received an extra 10% off with my CUK card and voucher.

Halfords Discount

Postby Marin2005 » 16 Jan 2020, 9:20pm

Hi all, this is my first post on the forum so please forgive me if this is in the wrong topic area.

I have started doing up my second and very neglected bike for commuting to work. As Halfords is the nearest bike spares shop to me and my Cycling UK membership gets me a discount on cycling bits n bobs I gave them a whirl a couple of days ago. So I made my purchase, showed the assistant my Cycling UK members card and got a discount off the whole order.
Today I needed one more component that cost over £20. I showed my membership card and the assistant told me that they only allow the cycling UK app on a phone to give a discount.
I paid the full price, went home and tried to find 'we are cycling uk' app on the google store. I can't seem to find it and I don't even know if the Halfords assistant had the correct information either.
Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

There's some more info here:

https://www.cyclinguk.org/member-benefits/halfords


Seems like you can print-out the voucher, OR take it on your smart-phone.


Aplogies if that page is out-of-date, or just plain wrong!


How to claim your discount
Present your voucher and membership card in store to receive your discount. You need to be logged in to this website to view the promotional voucher at the bottom of the page (see below for instructions).
A new voucher will be published on the first of each month. You can either show this page on your phone, or print out the voucher below.

I ordered a part and on collection had the same issue with not being able to access the Cycling UK code. I then remembered i could get the same discount using my AA membership but same applies and as i hadn't registered online with the AA that didn't help. I finally got my discount using another source. Altogether very frustrating.

Many thanks, I did some digging after posting my message and felt a bit lazy for not seeing the voucher code in the first place. I think I will knock Halfords on the head and buy my spares on line in the future.
