Jewson Privilege Account Scheme 2013 Guidance Notes

1. Aim

The Jewson Privilege Account Scheme aims to help cricket clubs make improvements to their facilities and grounds.

2. How does the Scheme work?

2.1 Jewson will issue up to 1400 privilege Accounts (Accounts) on a first come first served basis (with no more than one Account available per club).

2.2 Each of the Accounts will be provided with £400 pre-loaded credit to spend in Jewson branches (see www.jewson.co.uk for product range).

2.3 To activate an Account a cricket club must pay £100 up front; this is non-refundable. This will give a total account of £500 to spend.

2.4 Jewson will add value to the Account by providing additional discounts / preferential rates on selected products (this varies regionally and can be discussed with the Jewson branch manager).

2.5 Once the money in the Account has been spent, the Account will become a Cash Account whereby a club can continue to purchase Jewson products with the same terms as before by paying in cash up front.
