Re: armed forces discount

You need a payroll number and valid email address so it's doubtful ?

Re: armed forces discount

It's worth asking customer service but I too doubt it. Once upon a time there was a discount for veterans but I think that was discontinued when the O2 Open was introduced.

If you are a genuine veteran you can join https://www.defencediscountservice.co.uk where you'll find information to obtain the O2 Open discount you are referring to.

Re: armed forces discount

Hi everyone, just double checked this on our end as well regarding the O2 discount - it is indeed serving forces only that get the discount, so looks like that's why it was not working for you @alidon. If you are active though and there's still a problem, the Armed Forces HR might be able to help with more info.


Cheers for posting that link @DaveA. Smiley Happy
