Here are some frequently asked questions about the Surrey Extra portal.
Benefits membership card
The benefits membership card is exclusively for Surrey employees. It can be used in two ways:
- It is a pre-paid reloadable card (Love2shop) with a 7% discount at the time of loading. Once topped up, you can use it as method of payment at participating retailers (such as Argos, Boots, Iceland, M&S, Oasis, PC World, Wilko...).
- It is a proof of eligibility for "Local Deals" on Surrey Extra: Look for special offers from local independent retailers in your area in the "Local deals" section of Surrey Extra and show your card to the local retailer to get the discount advertised.
You can get your card (one per employee) from the reception of the following Surrey offices (make sure you have your Surrey ID card or a recent Surrey payslip with you to prove eligibility):
- County Hall (Kingston)
- Consort House (Redhill)
- Fairmount (Leatherhead)
- Merrow Complex (Guilford)
- Quadrant Court (Woking)
- Surrey Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters (Reigate)
To activate your card, register on Surrey Extra and from the My Staff Shop, click on membership card (LOVE 2 Shop) and activate your card. You can then top up your card and start saving.
Childcare voucher scheme
The Government has now closed Employer Childcare Voucher Schemes to new entrants (on 4 October 2018) as they introduced a tax free childcare scheme in 2017.
However, if you have previously been in receipt of childcare vouchers in your current employment (including TUPE situations), you can re-join the scheme provided that:
- You re-join within 12 months of your last salary sacrifice deduction for childcare vouchers.
- You have never been in the government's Tax-Free Childcare scheme.
If you are a current user, you can access your Childcare Voucher Scheme by logging in via Surrey Extra and navigating to 'My Childcare'.
Sodexo (Childcareplus) Childcare Voucher account
In order to access your online Sodexo (Childcareplus) childcare voucher account, please go to Childcare Plus and login.
If you have a question regarding your Sodexo (Childcareplus) childcare voucher account, you can contact the Sodexo customer care team by telephone 0800 328 7411 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
