Will I be asked for ID? Suppliers may require proof of employment with your organisation such as a business card or letterhead when you present your Employee Benefits Card, Discount Vouchers or Special Offer flyers in-store. Can I use the card for business purchases? Employee Benefits is only available for personal purchases by employees and volunteers. n3 member organisations receive better trading terms by purchasing on-account or through the n3 Trade Card. What happens if a staff member leaves and takes their Card or Discount Vouchers with them? Eligibility to use the n3 Employee Benefits program expires when an employee leaves. Once n3 is notified, we can deactivate access to the program for former employees so they cannot continue to use the n3 Card or On-demand vouchers. If they do use them in the meantime, this is still ok, as there is no cost to your organisation or ability to use On-Account facilities. What happens if an n3 Card or on-demand voucher is stolen? Please inform n3 in order to remove unauthorised access.
