Frequently asked questions
What are the changes being made to the Diamond Card scheme?
We have limited the number of products that qualify for the Wednesday 10% Diamond card discount. From 3 September 2018 the 10% Diamond Discount applies to over 10,000 gardening and Christmas products when you shop and take away in store on a Wednesday.
Why do gardening and Christmas products still qualify for the 10% Diamond discount and other products don’t?
We know that gardening and Christmas products are popular amongst our Diamond customers, so as a way of saying thank you for shopping with us, we’re keeping the discount on over 10,000 gardening and Christmas products.
Every time you shop with us, we’ll continue to send you an email with a voucher for the next time you visit, for use on any day of the week. And you’ll still receive 10% discount in B&Q cafés as a benefit of Club membership.
When did the changes take effect?
3 September 2018.
On which products will I continue to receive the 10% Diamond discount?

Are any gardening products excluded from the 10% Diamond discount?
There are some exclusions, please see here
Why has the 10% Diamond discount changed?
We want all our customers to benefit from stable low prices they can trust every time they shop so we are simplifying our pricing by reducing the number of deals and reviewing our loyalty benefits – to make our prices clear, transparent and trusted.
Can I use the 10% Gardening and Christmas Discount on Click + Collect items and online?
No, the 10% Diamond Card discount is only available in store on qualifying gardening and Christmas products to buy and take away that day. It cannot be used for Click + Collect or for orders placed online.
