Here's how to apply from the horses mouth so to speak [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

To get my trade card I took in a pile of invoices from bits I had bought from a Skoda dealer and GSF (some older than the 3 months specified by Halfords with a new one on the top). He asked if I had a wage slip - I showed him a print out from the website link above that said a large amount of invoices should be acceptable. He asked if I was a self-employed mechanic and I told him the truth that I was a student and did work on my own car, and he went off to ask the manager who ok'd it. I guess some stores might still be a bit funny about it and expect a mechanics wage slip. It would of course be technically fraud but on ebay some people sell wage slips for which you can provide fictitious information.

I know Halfords tends to be pricier than many motorfactors but this discount tends to bring the prices more inline with the motorfactors. I wouldn't shop there if it wasn't for the trade card.

Here's the current list of the types of discounts that can be had that we're trying to maintain on MSE, to illustrate the discounts. Some things not very much off, others there's quite a saving. Unfortunately you don't find out until you pay or ask for a price check.

I have a basic account with "maccess" who supply most of the workshops and motor factors around my home. The only stipulation is that there is a £25 minimum spend. But if you are careful you can build a shopping list of bits and then its not problem. Outstanding deals on oil, service items, batteries and paint (which is really cheap). My local branch even delivered a pair of batteries for my old shogun when it failed to start. One of the guys dropped them on the way home. Great service!
