I just spoke to Gareth Owens and he will look into it and get back to me by the end of the week.
He thinks that as I haven't updated the account for a few years (I've just let it run and let anybody use it) that it may need me to update/refresh the account to make sure ALL the % discounts are available at ALL branch's in the UK.
I sent a random email to head office and got a prompt reply from the branch. Unfortunately it just stated that all discounts were applied that are on the account and it may not show that a discount has been applied on the receipt. Sounds like the account may be missing some discounts, let me know what Gareth has to say cheers
Hi folks, I'm aiming to begin my pizza oven project this weekend after considerable reading both here and elsewhere, so thanks for being so enthusiastic! What I wanted to know is, is this discount that you've struck up still valid? (Thank you in advance for saving me a few quid!)

I know Cranny Fradock has been to get the discount reconfirmed with Jewson's and has asked for the help of any forum member that can spare the time to re-establish / confirm the national account pricing.
I went into my local Jewson today (Tetbury, Gloucestershire) and asked if it was possible to do this. I was told that any changes to the account have to take place at the branch where the account was opened.
Sorry Terry I tried.
The chap found the discount and applied it to the cement (39.91% discount) £4.18+vat 25kg bag. He said the sand was coming out at over £3 with the discount so reduced it further to £2.70 + vat per bag.
It would be interesting to see what others are paying for their materials and from where - there is definitely still a live national forum discount a Jewsons so its worth going in and seeing deals you can get
