How do Give as you Live store cards work?

Give as you Live store cards allow you to raise an average of 3% in free funds for your favourite charity when you buy or top-up online.

We have a range of cards and e-vouchers available from popular stores including Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Tesco and Asda.

Purchase store cards for yourself or as a thoughtful gift. Many of our cards are reloadable, so you can raise a free donation each time you top-up.

The scheme is managed by Give as you Live with the card distribution and payment process handled by our partner, SVM Global Limited, who are a world-leading reseller and distributor of corporate gift cards, e-codes and gift vouchers.

Is there a cost to the charity?

The Give as you Live store cards scheme is totally FREE for charities, as are the marketing materials we make available.

How do I pay using my store card/e-voucher?

The store cards are a standard method of payment. Just hand the card to the check-out assistant or, if you are using a self-service checkout, swipe your card to pay for your goods.

E-vouchers can be used in a similar way and provide a unique code that contains details of the amount of cash that can be spent.

I am unable to pay with a credit card or Amex card on the website. Why is this?

All personal credit card payment methods and Amex have been removed from the site. Please make your payment using a debit card.

I am trying to place an order and I am receiving a “card type not supported” error when entering my card number. Why is this?

If you are using a credit card, credit cards have been blocked on this site. Please make your payment with a debit card instead.

If you are using a debit card, certain issuing banks sometimes use 16 digit card numbers which were previously associated with credit cards. As we have blocked credit cards on this website, if our system is identifying your payment method as a credit card, you will not be able to proceed. Please use an alternative debit card, or contact our Customer Care team who will be able to help you.
