Member benefits

In this section

There are lots of benefits to being a member of the East of England Co-op.

Our co-op is owned by over 275,000 people - which makes us a very different kind of business. Here are some of the reasons we think it's brilliant to be a member:

A share in our success

A share in our success

Earn dividend points - Members earned 2p back for every £1 spent since 2010

When we do well, so do our members. We share our profits with our members and this is known as our dividend (affectionately known as the ‘divi’). Every time you shop with us, you earn dividend points*. The more you shop with us, the more you get - it all adds up!

* There are a few things like cigarettes, National Lottery, infant formula, PayPoint, Subway, funeral disbursements and prescription drugs that don’t qualify for dividend points.

Have your voice heard

Each of our members owns an equal share of our co-op. That means that you can vote on important things, including our annual Election of Directors, and on motions at our Annual Members' Meeting.
