MySavings - Wheatley Group
Customers of Wheatley Group can use a new scheme called MySavings to save money on their shopping. The scheme, launched on 9 May 2019, gives tenants access to offers on everything from food at the supermarket to clothes for the family. There are even offers on things like cinema tickets and takeaways.
MySavings offers customers an opportunity to save up to 10% on their everyday expenditure. It is a web-based application that links to discounts from over 1,000 high street and online retailers.
MySavings is designed to be easy to use. Offers change every week and are available by signing in to an online account. MySavings keeps people up-to-date with offers by email.
The scheme is part of Wheatley’s commitment to Better Lives and encouraging digital inclusion. The scheme also provides a platform to promote wider opportunities to customers from trusted partners (e.g. Glasgow life, Co-Wheels e:car club, Wheatley Foundation, etc.) Users can also see jobs and training opportunities and a handy budget calculator to keep their finances on track.
Wheatley expects customers who use MySavings to save £100s a year. Over time, Wheatley will add more great benefits to help customers save money through MySavings.
MySavings is easy to use. All tenants have to do is log in to their online account, click on MySavings and then on ‘See today’s best deals’. On their first visit, tenants will be asked to sign up to MySavings. Once they’ve signed up, they can start saving.
MySavings is exclusively for customers of the organisations in Wheatley Group. The scheme is delivered by a specialist provider which is not part of Wheatley Group.
Hundreds of tenants are already saving money on their shopping through the scheme, which offers discounts every week at lots of different shops.
In the first week alone, almost 350 customers used it – and were able to take advantage of almost 750 different offers. That means tenants and their families are making savings on the things they need.
Tenant Susan Rowan, 52, from Barmulloch, said: “There are lots of ways you can make the most of the savings. “You get a reloadable card
for different shops and I load mine up when I get paid and use it at Asda for my weekly shop.
“I’ve used it for the discounts on holidays and at Asda, buying things like clothes at Primark. You get 4% off your food shopping. Tesco do it too.
“It just makes your money go further.”
Wemimo Ogundiwin, from Knightswood, added: “With five kids, I’m always looking for ways to save money.
“I’ve used it once – my daughter wanted an iPad for school. I didn’t think I could afford it, but I found a deal and got £45 off.
“That’s enough for a week’s food for us – so it’s a really big saving.”
GHA Managing Director Jennifer Russell said: “MySavings can really help people save on the cost of everyday things.
“With lots of different offers every week, we hope it will help people with the costs of running their home.”
