- Chain Reaction BC discount – change of Ts&Cs
Ignoring the expiry date that’s cocked up a bit, my membership is showing as ‘£10 off orders over £150’…
If this is the shape of things to come, then that’s a bit arse, especially with the potential uselessness of 10% Evans discount… (Ride membership, BTW)
EDIT: This – https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/membership/article/20141218-Chain-Reaction-10–off-for-Britsh-Cycling-Members-0 Their site is half updated, with references all over the site still quoting at 10% but pointing to that page.Posted 1 year agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
You’re right. I saw this change and thought, well that’s 10% off I will get to use A LOT less often, and subsequently custom that CRC will get as a result. Not that I would hold a business to ransom, but when I have needed stuff that approached the £100 mark, I would have always pushed it up to £100+ and done my shopping at CRC. But £150 just makes it that much harder to excuse, and therefore a lot less likely.Posted 1 year agothisisnotaspoonSubscriber
…Or is the Halfords discount worth it…?
They price match CRC so as long as it’s something they stock. I use it a lot.
Dunno if it’s changed recently but I’ve always just used my card and they scan a barcode on the till for the discount. Never had none bike stuff refused although I’ve not tried anything too blatant like car parts.Posted 1 year agodangeourbrainSubscriber
Halfords discount also changing I think, to a code system like the CRC discount and they properly check it’s bike stuff now as well.
It doesn’t suggest it’s limited to one purchase a month mind, i guess just b cut down on people lending their cards.
Indeed, but more crucially the fact that it’s not 10% any more. Just a whole ten pounds. Harrumph.
And makes it worse than most of the offers on the front page of crc too.Posted 1 year ago
I honestly can’t see how CRC made any money at all on my last bike. it was already hugely discounted and I used BC to get a further 10% and at 4months old it’d already had £1400 of warranty returned parts replaced/sent out to me and been shipped to Ireland and back for a repair..
CRC’re already cheap as and offer a price match if thy’re not the cheapest and folk are spitting the dummy about a further 10% they think they’re entitled to for joining a corrupt orginisation they probably had no other use for.Posted 1 year agondthorntonMember

Yeah what’s your point….that’s the only reason I bought the membership – what else does it offer. BC ought to compensate me for the remainder of my year subscription.Posted 1 year agoFOGSubscriber
Too right why else would a non racing , non spectating person join BC? I only joined this year because I was going to buy a bike from CRC which turned out to be out of stock. Seems a straightforward transaction to me , you join because they promise something, then they don’t deliver so I for one will definitely not renewPosted 1 year agovincienupSubscriber
Why is it relevant who pays for the warranty returns/replacement? Those are consumer protections, and the idea is that companies persistently selling good that are unfit for sale will be driven out of business by the cost. As CRC are still in business, you can rest assured that they at least try so sell products that are fit for use.Posted 1 year agoGarry_LagerSubscriber

Third party accident insurance? I realise you could get this separately from lots of places but it seems a solid thing to offer if you commute by bike. It used to be the only reason I had a CTC membership.Posted 1 year ago
