We’re thrilled to announce that, after months of planning, our UWS membership card has officially launched!
But just what is a UWS membership card, we hear you ask?
The idea behind the UWS card was born out of a desire to give something back to our tenants, that showed our appreciation and gave support to their business and other businesses in the local area. And so the UWS card was created!
Whether you’ve been with us for 10 years or 10 days, as an UrbanWorkSpace tenant, you’re automatically eligible to receive one of our free UWS cards; regardless of which of our sites you’re based at.
For something so small, the UWS card packs a mighty punch by giving you access to exclusive deals and discounts from local businesses; some of whom are your fellow tenants. These deals range from free introductory yoga lessons to money off spa and beauty treatments to discounted lunches at some of the JQ’s best foodie haunts. With new deals and businesses signing up all the time, there’s always going to be something on offer that will pique your interest.
As well as helping you save a few pennies and encouraging you to help other local businesses, the UWS card can also be a great way to promote your own business and attract a new audience to your door for free. You can share your own deals on our membership page, which can then be accessed by our wonderful UWS tenants across all of our sites. It can also be a fantastic way to find networking and collaboration opportunities with your fellow tenants, which can only be of benefit to you both!
How to use your UWS card
Once you’ve moved into one of our office spaces, your UWS card will be delivered to you by a friendly member of our UWS team. But before you head out and start using your card here, there and everywhere, you need to register and become a member. We know you’re all busy people, but we promise registration is super quick and easy.
To begin, all you need to do is visit urbanworkspace.com/directory and click ‘Sign up’ where you’ll then be asked to fill in a few details. Click the ‘Register’ button and await a confirmation email from us to let you know that you can now log in. Once, logged in you’ll be able to browse the current deals we have on offer, search for a specific business or submit your own deal for our UrbanWorkSpace tenant network to take advantage of.
Now that your card is fully registered, it’s time to start claiming all of those amazing deals we have on offer. There are a few different ways of doing this depending on the business and the deal you’re using. To claim a deal in-store, all you need to do is show your UWS (which can fit perfectly in your purse/wallet by the way) and the business will honour the deal specified on the listing.
If you prefer contacting a business via email or over the phone, you just need to tell them that you have a UWS card and quote the deal from the listing to them. If you have any trouble claiming a deal, please get in touch with a member of the UWS team.
To celebrate the launch of our membership card and to share our excitement with our tenants, we recently hosted a card launch party at our Branston Court offices. The weather might have put a dampener on our plans for an outdoor shindig, but we certainly made the most of it with music, snacks and wine galore! We were thrilled with the turnout from out tenants; who were all eager to find out more about the card and get to know their fellow tenants.
We’re already looking forward to hosting more UWS card events in future to bring our tenants together and to continue developing a real sense of community at each of our sites.
If you’re a tenant and you’re still yet to receive your UWS card, please get in touch with our marketing team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
