The Carer Business Discount Card scheme operates in a similar way to the popular Seniors Business Discount Card scheme. It is a partnership between the state government and businesses to provide discounts to Queensland carers.
Under the scheme, participating businesses agree to offer a discount on goods and services to cardholders. The offer should be a special discount or incentive for cardholders that is not available to other customers.
Carers shop like everyone else - they buy all types of goods and services, from food to fridges, hobbies to holidays, cars to clothing and tools to tow bars. A wide range of businesses have discovered it makes good sense to be part of the Carer Business Discount Card scheme as well as the Seniors Business Discount Card scheme.
Offering a discount to cardholders promotes your business to an expanded customer base. It also demonstrates that you recognise the contribution carers make to the community.
Businesses joining the scheme can access a range of services online to make participation simple.
Free promotional materials are available to help direct cardholders to your door.
