This Man Has Figured Out A Genius Way To Get Discounts



We could all do with saving a little extra cash on our everyday purchases, the world is an expensive place nowadays after all. This man, Richard Macrae from Aberdeen, has taken that sentiment to the next level by acquiring discounts with his “Ginger Discount Card.” What a guy!

Let’s face it, gingers have had their fair share of stick over the years, and that was probably the motivation his friends had when they made him the card for his birthday. However, the 30 year old says that he has put the home-made card to good use, and has managed to save money on a variety of purchases from restaurants to cinemas, and even taxi drivers.


Richard said”It comes out with me more than my bank card. I ask if they do the ginger discount, and when they look confused I slide across my card. I’ve saved a couple of hundred pounds maybe, with money off booze, taxis, food and club entries – over four years it fairly builds up.”


The comic book illustrator claims to have saved more than £200 and said he is constantly asked by people how they can acquire one too.

He said: ‘I’ve been asked to leave a bar once because the bartender assumed that I was too drunk if I was attempting to use the card. 

‘But usually the only places that have turned it down are places I’ve used it at before anyway.’  

Richard has sold us, the ginger discount card should be a real thing nationwide.
