The Blue Light Card is a nationally recognized system that offers employees in the NHS, emergency services, social services and the armed forces a range of discounts.
Asda launched its Christmas cardholder discount to recognize the great job they do every day to keep everyone safe.
Asda Chief Merchandising Officer Derek Lawlor said, “Blue Light cardholders work in difficult and dangerous situations every day of the year to support people across the UK who need them most. We wanted to acknowledge this and thank them for everything they do by offering a discount in our stores for Christmas. ”
The UK is in an energy crisis after gas prices have skyrocketed in recent weeks.
Many utilities are out of business, leading to food shortages warnings in UK supermarkets.
Households are warned that anyone buying cheap, fixed energy deals could experience huge price spikes, even at the cheapest tariffs. To avoid a possible price increase on the energy bill, customers can:
- Keep the price cap for six months as prices could potentially fall if the energy market stabilizes.
- Switch at the cheapest fixed price for a year or two, but act fast – see here to switch.

Tom Dalby, Blue Light Card CEO, said, “Asda has always done so much to show its appreciation to NHS staff and other frontline workers, and this partnership will help millions of blue light workers in the country.
“After last year’s restrictions, this Christmas will feel special for those who couldn’t see loved ones during the 2020 festive season.
“It is often the norm for so many of our members to work long hours leading up to the big day, but at Asda they can save so much time on their Christmas shop by buying everything under one roof.
“I hope they take advantage of this exclusive 10% discount to save on their tree, turkey, board games, and even their Christmas sweater.
“We really want to thank our members for doing everything in their power to help protect the most vulnerable this year and every year.”
