We have highlighted some of our most frequently asked questions in order to guide you through your journey at The Mustcard.
The Mustcard is a local discount membership card that covers areas within Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire, with over 100 businesses offering members huge savings every time they purchase an item or service. Each member receives a personalised membership card which they can use within any of our independent businesses to receive the advertised discount or offer. After you have received your membership card, you just need to present it at the point of sale to claim your discount. All discounts and offers are live and are subject to cancellation and amendments. So, please do check our website to make sure you know what all the latest promotions are. However, we do ask all our independents to honour any old discounts and offers for 7 days after they have been discontinued or amended. The Mustcard is an annual membership card. Once signed up with us, your membership will automatically renew from the date on your card.
No! Anyone can be a member of The Mustcard and the card offers great value savings for all of the community. Our focus is on working with retailers and businesses that offer products and services for the entire community and so anyone can benefit from being a member of The Mustcard.
The Mustcard gives you access to a wide variety of discounts, deals and special promotions. Many of the participating partners offer between 10% – 50% discount off full priced goods. Such deals typically don’t work in conjunction with any other promotions so you cannot get The Mustcard discount or offer on top of sale items. Some retailers offer special one-off offers during holidays or various seasons, whilst other retailers have special discounts during less busy times of their operation. The Mustcard is committed to provide you with more offers and discounts throughout the year and we will work hard to secure these for you.
Signing up for a membership to The Mustcard is very easy and can be done through our website. You will need to have a debit/credit card/Paypal account to set-up a recurring subscription with us.
You can cancel the subscription any time, please see the terms and conditions.
If you require any help do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

On occasion we offer clients the ability to purchase a year-long membership without setting up a reoccurring subscription.

"Such a fantastic scheme. As a business we have an offer on with the Mustcard which has given us a platform to reach more local customers. But more than that I have been personally using my card to shop locally in Haslemere and Midhurst. Some of the discounts are brilliant. The best part for me is the fabulous write ups on local shops and pubs that I otherwise would not have known about! We have visited so many new places because of the Mustcard, it has opened up our local area. I love scrolling through the business listings and exploring all the new places! Supporting the local independents, what could be better than that! Thank you Mustcard."May and Grace Bridal, Haslemere
"I don't know how i lived before this card came about! The Value for money is unmatched! After 1-2 uses, you have made your money back and then you have the rest of the year to save? Um, yes please! It's not just the value for money. It's the inspiration. I find myself quite frequently going onto the website to find places for me an my girlfriend to visit! so yeah, its a no-brainer. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a Mustcard. The bigger this gets, the more we all benefit."Luke Cullis
"What an incredible opportunity for local people and businesses alike! We love the sense of community it bring to everyone."The Kings Arms, Fernhurst
“I’m looking forward to being able to try new places that offer a discount. A little change from the usual chains.”Narinder Kaur
"It's a no brainer! Tailor it to suit your business and it doesn't cost you a bean. We've already had business from it as a result."Woodie and Morris, Haslemere
In today’s fast changing world the things we value are shifting equally as fast. The move away from chain style shops and departments stores to online ordering for example. Within this the Independent shops have become the marker, not only for defining our towns, by giving them identity and individuality, but by increasing the sense of community. Supporting Independent small and family businesses keeps our towns alive. The Mustcard is a superb, affordable way for us to say ‘YES, we are in. YES we value and support our town’s individuality, it’s personality and it’s people’. The additional twist is that, in so doing, these amazing shops and their owners reward Mustcard Members with special discounts!! It’s a true win win!My Midhurst Life
