Valerie Singleton OBE, Nigel Houghton (Managing Director) and a small group of colleagues, have launched www.discount-age.co.uk, a new money saving website for all the 60-pluses in the UK.
With the UK economy on its way into recession, 60-pluses are likely to be badly hit; not only because they are living on fixed pensions, but also the drop in share prices has actually cut the value of many pensions by up to 25%.
With over 12 million people in the UK over 60, many already suffering the effects of the downturn, the new website offers a one-stop shop for this diverse and growing market, offering hundreds of ways to save money through information, advice, discounts and comment.
Some of the many topics covered on the website include, Mind and Body, Travel, Hotels, Holidays, Insurance, Entertainment, Food and Drink, Home and Garden, Money and Work.
Valerie welcomes visitors to the new website, with her monthly webcast on the homepage.
The website is free to all – however, for an annual fee of just Â£10, visitors can become members and enjoy a growing number of exclusive additional benefits and discounts, negotiated especially for discount-age members with international, national and regional organisations.
The cost of membership can be easily recovered from these discounts.
Launch discounts include holidays, wine, a car club, food, flowers and even spectacles.
All members will receive a monthly e-newsletter, to keep them up to date with new offers, discounts and developments; the aim for the year is to find and negotiate up to Â£2,500 of discounts for members.
The first crop of discounts is worth about Â£350.
