FAQ's

  • The Ode card from Discounts for Carers is an additional benefit we offer to our members on top of our incredible deals and discounts. The Ode card is a prepaid VISA card that allows you to shop online or in-store at the places you love, just like a regular contactless debit card. 

     

    It is entirely free to sign up, and as an Ode cardholder, you can shop at qualifying retailers and earn up to 16% cashback on your purchase. Also, the Ode card is Money Supermarkets top prepaid card,  so you’re in safe hands with Ode.

     

  • Signing up for the Ode card couldn’t be easier. Once you have completed the registration process, your Ode card will be sent to you in the mail. From here, all you need to do is follow the activation steps provided then your Ode card will be ready for use.

     

    You will be required to provide an initial top-up of £5 when registering your Ode card.

    Please note that the £5 top-up is credited to your card for you to spend. Once the registration process has been completed and the initial top-up has been paid, the top-up minimum will be £10, and the maximum will be £1,000. So how do you top up your Ode card? It’s easy. Simply head over to your online account at https://www.spree-card.com/DCHSPR/Home/Login 

     

    Alternatively, you can download the Spree App to top up and manage your card. The Spree app is available via the App Store and Google Store.

  • With the Ode card, our members can shop at their favourite stores, track cashback earned, and budget their monthly finances. You give at work, so why not start winning at life with Ode?

     

    If you are a Discounts for Carers cashback cardholder, you may have noticed that it has been rebranded to “Ode Card”. As an existing cashback cardholder, you do not need to worry, as the cashback card you know and love will work the same. 

     

    The card will have already changed in your Apple Wallet and Google Pay. Also, we will be sending you a shiny new Ode Card when your existing cashback card expires...but if you can’t wait, all you need to do is order a brand new Ode card for £2.99 per card.

  • Those who work in the Care Sector can apply for an Ode card and earn cashback when shopping at partner retailers - providing you have a valid carer work email address, or you can use a personal email address and you will need to upload a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions when registering which states that you work as and are paid as a Carer.

     

  • Unfortunately, the Ode card is not available to retired members of staff at this current time. This is due to existing supplier agreements. Please note that we are working hard on this and hope to include retired members of staff in the future.

    Until then, why not check out our scheme? As a member, there is a wide selection of online offers available.
