My VIP Card is a multi-award winning discount card and employee benefit scheme that helps people to shop local, support their high street and save money,
Founded in December 2017 by Maddy Alexander-Grout after she suffered from postnatal anxiety with the birth of her first child Ben, Maddy was housebound after Ben was born as she was too scared to leave the house in case something happened to her little boy.
After getting some help Maddy found a group of wonderful mums who had been in the same place and she started to connect with her community a bit more, she quickly realised that she felt better being out of the house but it was all so expensive constantly getting coffee and going to soft play so Maddy started to arrange discounts for her and her mummy friends.
Then one sleepless night with Ben she had the brainwave to create a discount card that helps people to connect with their community like she had done.
Starting with 80 discounts Maddy made her mark on Hampshire selling My VIP Card to local mums, it was only when someone said to her that she was discriminating against non parents that she opened up the card to be more inclusive.
My VIP Card soon became a hit with the residents of Hampshire and when Maddy was made redundant from her corporate job in HR she decided to combine her passion for shopping local with her corporate background to launch the scheme as an employee benefit.
My VIP Card is a way for businesses to shout about what they do without spending any money and is a great way for employers to reward, retain and recognise their employees.
