How did you get one of those, thought you ran a couple of nightclubs as a job, now you're a car mechanic?
They do have extremely good discounts using the card from what i can see online.
Haven't used rainx myself but have heard good things.
All I did was showed the fella a bunch of invoices i had to him to show i would purchase alot of things, he then gave me one .......
Read it on a forum , think moneysavingexpert..........

Official MoneySavingExpert.com Insert:
If you're a mechanic or in the trade and can prove it then the Halfords Trade Card could mean sizeable savings. To prove you're eligible you'll need to show either your City and Guilds in Motor Mechanics certificate, or equivalent, or proof that you're employed as a technician.
However, even if you've been working in the trade for some time and can't prove you're qualified, some store managers will, at their discretion, give cards to those who can prove they make a lot of purchases by showing receipts from local motor factors although they'll also prefer that this be accompanied with proof of employment where possible.
You can usually get these trade cards by joining a car club, the Vauxhall Owners Network give you a Halfords card upon joining whereas autobahnstormers gives you Vauxhall Dealership trade cards. Quite handy if you do a lot of car work.
You get better discount on the Halfords own brand stuff than on other brands.
You will still retain the normal trade price on stuff that's on special offer.
For example, if a 5l bottle of oil has been reduced by 20% retail, you won't get 20% off the trade price. It will remain the normal trade price, so be careful about that.
