Dividend card

Dividend is a traditional way of giving members a share of the profits. As a Lincolnshire Co-op member you'll receive a dividend card to collect dividend points when using our stores and services. As a co-operative we give you dividend in proportion to your purchases so the more you spend, the more dividend you'll get in return.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I collect dividend?

Dividend is a traditional way of giving members a share of the profits. As a Lincolnshire Co-op member you'll receive a dividend card to collect dividend points when using our stores and services. As a co-operative we give you dividend in proportion to your purchases so the more you spend, the more dividend you'll get in return.

How do I check my dividend balance?

Every time you use your dividend card the receipt will show your current balance in pounds and pence. You can then use this money to pay for goods straight away.

How do I use my dividend card to pay for things?

Just tell the assistant you would like to pay with your dividend card and hand over your card at the till. The value of your purchase will be deducted from your current dividend balance. You can use your dividend points for full or part payment.

If I forget my dividend card, can I still collect my dividend points?

Yes. Make your purchase as normal and ask the assistant to suspend your points. Return to the store with your dividend card and receipt within seven days and ask for the points to be added onto your dividend card.

How much dividend will I get?

Dividend points are issued at a standard rate of 1% in food stores, travel, for motor parts and service and florists, so you'll receive 24 points for every £1 spent (2400 points equals £1). You'll receive 5 points for every litre of fuel purchased in our filling stations.

How can I boost my dividend balance?

There are always extra dividend offers on selected products in food stores – it's an easy way to top-up your dividend.

From time to time we also have special 10x dividend events in our food stores and travel branches.

Keep an eye on our website or sign up for member emails to see when the next one will be.

I've lost my dividend card, what do I do?

If you've lost your dividend card you'll need to let us know as soon as possible so we can stop anyone else using it and send you a new one.

Contact our Member Accounts Team on 01522 781 135 or email memberaccounts@lincolnshire.coop (including you dividend card number if known and your address).

Don't worry, we'll transfer your current dividend balance to your new card so you can carry on where you left off.
