How to use your Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock discount

Posted by Peter Burnside on 01/09/2019

It’s easy to save the price of your BMC membership and much more with our discount scheme. Get 15% off at our recommended retail partners Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need. Find out more below.

With the discount scheme, BMC members can save money on outdoor gear, equipment, expedition kit, and much more. The list just keeps growing.

From 1 September 2017, the BMC entered into a partnership with Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need. As our recommended retail partners, BMC members can get a whopping 15% off their purchases online and in store.

 

How to get your discount

If you are shopping in store, all you have to do is flash your BMC membership card (or BMC affiliated club membership card) at the checkout to get your discount. Please remember that T&Cs will apply, and you won’t be able to get the discount on items that are already reduced.

For online purchases, there will be a code to enter at checkout. The code can be obtained by checking the back of your BMC membership card or by contacting the BMC office: office@thebmc.co.uk / 0161 445 6111 or by directly messaging us in on our social media.

Please note: there is a new code, same discount, for 2024. If you're membership card still has the old code, please email office@thebmc.co.uk or phone 0161 445 6111 for the new code for online purchases.

What is the Explore More scheme?

In June 2019 Cotswold launched Explore More, which is their customer loyalty programme. They also now use this programme to administer the discount offer in store for their partner’s members, these discounts are not available to general members of Explore More, only to their partner organisation members.

There are additional benefits to being part of the Explore More scheme which will benefit BMC members:

  • 3-year extended warranty
  • 100 day return with no receipt
  • Price-match promise

The system is also used for Cotswold to report our members spend back to us and (when relevant) trigger additional payments to the BMC to further contribute to the work we do on behalf of our members and communities.

What if I don't want my data to be used by Cotswold but still want to redeem my discount?

The Explore More scheme is required to administer the programme and you can specify the use of your data i.e. if you are concerned about data use you can request that it is not used in any other way other than to administer the discount on your purchase when in store.

What does the partnership involve?

Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need have an established partnership programme with many other like-minded outdoor organisations, such as the Mountain Training Association, Plas-y-Brenin, The National Trust and The Ramblers. The BMC have had a long-running relationship with Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need and this evolution of the partnership formalises many of the existing elements. 

In return for supporting our work, we will promote Cotswold Outdoor, Snow+Rock and Runners Need as our Recommended Retail Partners, and all BMC members will receive a 15% discount in Cotswold Outdoo, Snow+Rock and Runners Need

Full T&Cs apply. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount. Selected lines are exempt. Only valid upon production of your BMC membership identification in store or use of valid discount code online.

Having serious trouble finding my discount code on your website and would appreciate some help please. All I can find in the members area is my membership number which doesn’t work on the Cotswold Outdoor website....? Thanks.
