Can you use Blue Light Card at ASDA?

| Published | LAST UPDATED .

The ASDA supermarket chain has re-entered the Blue Light Card discount program in Spring 2022. Blue Light Card holders receive a 10% discount. ASDA Supermarket is introducing this offer due to recent increased health risks, as well as a general rise in the cost of living.


According to Blue Light Card General Manager Tom Dalby, BLC is very proud to partner with ASDA. "As the cost of living increases," said Mr. Dalby, "my hope is that this exclusive 10% discount will help families and individuals throughout the UK buy everything from great groceries to new school clothes".

What is Blue Light Card?


As a reminder, the Blue Light Card is a discount program for health and emergency care workers, NHS employees (NHS is an acronym for National Health Service. By the way, we have already written about the NHS discount program; see also webpage Which retailers give NHS discounts), social service and military personnel, and other front line life safety workers. We have described the details of this program on a separate web page, Blue Light Card discounts.
