Gift cards available for:

  • Sainsburys (in store/online)
  • Waitrose (in store/online)
  • John Lewis (in store/online)
  • Tesco (in store only)
  • Argos

If you are planning a large purchase for your home or garden (eg from John Lewis or Argos) you can make one-off payments and CGS receive the commission! You can also save up monthly amounts and receive a card to spend at Christmas.


If you buy £100 per month of your food shop using your ShopSmart Sainsbury’s card:

  • This earns 4% commission (donated by Sainsburys to CGS)
  • Which generates £48/year to CGS – FREE!
  • Multiply by many parents and teachers can bring in over £15,000 a year (FREE!)
