You dont need to take your card everytime. I requested they took a copy of mine and it's good for the year, just sorted it for this year as it happens.
Edit add - just to make that clear they give you a membership card. R
Membership lasts forever at bookers. But I was informed that you should purchase 'something' from the store once a month. To keep your membership open.
I use them all the time now and NEVER buy sugar anywhere else.
Tesco sometimes its 95p a kilo, Iceland 75p a kilo.
It might be worth checking with your local association as well.
Last year ours was able to buy in a 'job lot' of sugar from the wholeselars at a reduced price... I ended up paying 60p per kilo for my share.
Have you or a friend got a MAKRO card? I got all my sugar from them before christmas. It was about 56 p per kilo in a 15 single kilo pallet or they did sacks of 25 kilos which averaged out at 53p per kilo
Makro and Costco are both selling granulated sugar at 56p/kg in 25kg bags.
Sadly both require a card, Costco is £25+VAT/year, available on production of any business paperwork BUT also available to NHS workers, Police, Fire, HM Forces etc.
Makro - can't remember what was required for the card but it's free.
As an offer, I can "host" a guest at either establishment, I'm in Bristol, Makro is at Cribbs and Costco at Avonmouth, if anyone wants to get a load PM me and I'll get you in. I have spoken to Makro about getting a shedload at a time, they need about 4-5 working days notice to get enough in, I was asking about getting 2-3 tonnes at a time.
