Wider Wallet - What is it?
The Wider Wallet benefits hub offers a tempting package of benefits and discounts, all designed to make its users money stretch further. Introduced as a new NAS membership benefit in late 2019. The platform has had over 115 registered users, who are regularly logging in and redeeming offers.
Any employee of an NAS member is entitled to register and access the hub. We encourage our members to offer Wider Wallet to their employees to reward them and raise engagement. The NAS is also keen to ensure that employees at all levels see the benefit of their employer being a member of the Association.
How does it work?
Once registered, users can access instant offers, high street savings, cashback, and discounts on supermarket shopping. The discounts at all of the major supermarkets range from 3% to 5%, depending on the store. As Tesco say, every little helps – particularly as we enter periods of significant price inflation.
Wider Wallet have used Office of National Statistics (ONS) data and have calculated that the average annual saving is around £255, which would be the equivalent of two free weekly shops in most cases.
