Welcome to MyDurham!

MyDurham is the central hub from which eligible staff can access a range of employee benefits including corporate and local discounts and our Cycle to Work scheme. There are hundreds of offers available including discounts for supermarkets, holidays and travel, and high street retailers. MyDurham is run in conjunction with our partner Sodexo Motivation Solutions Ltd.

We very much hope that you will make use of My Durham to make savings on the things that matter most to you.

Spree Cashback Card Special Offer

With the Spree Cashback Card, you can earn cashback on your everyday purchases. Spree Cards are prepaid Visa cards that automatically earn you cashback when you spend at partner retailers including ASDA, Sainsbury's, Argos and M&S. You can purchase a Spree Card for £2.99 (usually £9.99) until 5th February 2021.

For those with a MyDurham account, log in to the platform and select 'Spree Cashback Card' under the 'Ways To Save' heading or simply search for 'Spree' in the search box.

Those with a MyDurham account will need to set up this authentication when prompted, you can find further information on how to complete this process here and FAQs regarding two-factor authentication here.
