Staff Discount Portal

Overview

The Staff Discount Portal provides employees access to a variety of savings across hundreds of retailers, offering great discounts, cashback savings and offers across hundreds of high street brands, travel, tickets and much, much more.

Who does this apply to?

All current University employees are eligible to access the Staff Discount Portal. Access to the portal is free while you remain an employee of the University.

What do I need to consider?

As access to the portal is dependent on your being a University employee, if you are planning to leave the University then you will need to make sure that you don’t sign-up to discounts that will become available after you leave, as your account will be cancelled. This wouldn’t affect existing discount cards with money still on them.

The portal is only for University employees. You are welcome to purchase items through the portal for friends and family but you must not share your login or password or let anyone else use the portal with your account.

What do I need to do?

To gain access to the portal, you will need a University network account. If you don’t have a network account, this MyPort article has instructions on how to obtain a staff network account. Once you have a University account you will also have access to the portal, and on entering the portal it will prompt you to add any personal details if you want to use it.

You can access the portal via http://mydiscounts.port.ac.uk . If you are accessing via the University network and have logged in to the portal via the University network previously, you will not have to supply your username and password again. Whenever you access the portal from outside of the University network you will be prompted to enter your username and password, to ensure the security of your account.

You can choose to add a personal email address to your account for order confirmations, special offers and so on, but it won’t be used for logging in.

What else do I need to know?

The University does not pass any personal details to Sodexo. You can enter your personal details (for postage and payment) if you wish to use the portal.

You need to be aware that personal data will be held and processed by a third party (Sodexo and also known as P&MM) and used in accordance with their terms and conditions. The University has no access to the data you provide to Sodexo other than that you have become a member of the Portal.

Nothing personal about you will be shared with the University apart from whether you have registered with them. Sodexo will provide the University with the number of staff who have registered, overall spend through the portal and most popular discounts.
