Local Blend (powered by Coffee Club) has brewed up the yearlong discount especially for Vodafone customers.

Coffee lovers across the UK looking to support local, independent shops can now enjoy a tasty yearlong 25% discount that Local Blend (powered by Coffee Club) has brewed up especially for Vodafone customers.

So, whether it’s a visit to the café around the corner with the creamiest lattes or the coffee shop near the station with their commute-worthy flat whites, VeryMe Rewards users will be able to enjoy 25% off at a huge range of their nearest and dearest coffee shops. The yearlong discount can be accessed using a new membership, Local Blend, through VeryMe Rewards where customers can enjoy savings on all barista-made drinks.

The Local Blend membership is open to all customers with access to VeryMe Rewards and entitles them to a 12-month Local Blend membership (powered by Coffee Club) giving 25% off barista made drinks at participating cafes and coffee shops. All customers have to do is simply activate their Local Blend membership through VeryMe Rewards, explore the range of coffee shops, and sip their favourite lattes, cappuccinos, mochas and more – for less! Membership must be presented at the time of purchasing to enable the discount.

Billy Keast: Rugby pro tackles coffee and clothing

A winner of this year’s Gain Line Award, sponsored by Vodafone, Billy has been brewing up a successful Cornish business while continuing to play professional rugby.

Vodafone’s VeryMe Rewards launched in November 2018 and over 60 million rewards have been claimed to date. The loyalty programme uses machine learning to tailor and personalise deals to meet individual tastes, with daily rewards including free treats and money off well-known brands. Over time, the app learns what customers like so that they don’t miss out on deals from their favourite brands.

Vodafone customers can access VeryMe Rewards in the My Vodafone app which can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play store.
