Employee shopping card now available for organisations of all sizes

Grass Roots Group, a Blackhawk Network company, has announced the launch of a new platform to register for its Pure card, allowing employers of all sizes to offer it for free, and without the previous requirement of a structured flexible benefits programme.

Pure is one of the strongest employee rebate cards in the benefits marketplace, offering cardholders rebates of between 3 per cent and 15 per cent from over 70 leading high street retailers and brands. Rebates are automatically paid back onto the card in the month following a purchase, and over the course of a year, can potentially amount to hundreds of pounds.

The new Pure platform enables businesses of all sizes—including small businesses and those without a flexible benefits provider or salary reduction arrangements—to quickly set up their own Pure programme online free of charge. Employees can then order their card through the same site, paying a one-off fee of just £9.99 for their card, which is valid for 36 months. They also are provided with the option of ordering a card for their spouse or partner for £5. There is no cost to the employer, and no requirement for payroll administration, making the whole process quick and easy for everyone.

“This is an exciting development for an already popular benefit,” says Adrian Warren, Senior Product Director at Grass Roots. “It makes Pure totally free for organisations to set up and run. When you consider how salaries have been stagnant over the last few years, giving employees a way to save money when doing their everyday shopping is a significant benefit to support your employees’ financial wellbeing.”

Cardholders can manage their Pure account via a secure website, where they can top up, check their balance, find locations where they can use their card, and review their spend. They can also use the MyPureCard app (available for iOS and Android) for quick and easy access and top-ups on the go.
