The great thing about working with our partners at Currys PC World is that we’re able to offer even better savings for customers. Currys frequently have great sales where you can pick up high-quality tech with impressive discounts, but when you go to them through Techscheme’s employee benefits scheme you can save up to 12% more on even those sale prices.
Your employer will first need to approve the purchase so it could take a few weeks to come through, but luckily Currys almost always have some sort of sale happening. To give you an example of the sort of savings you can expect to make, we’ve taken a look at some of the personal products (rated 5 stars by customers) that you can buy in their current sale.
SAMSUNG QE55Q7CAMT 55-inch Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR Curved QLED TV
We’ll start with a big ticket item, this high-quality QLED TV is staggeringly good. Q HDR 1500 with Quantum Dot Technology from Samsung creates brilliant, crisp, clear and colourful images. Whether you’re enjoying an Ultra HD Blu-Ray or streaming TV or gaming you’ll get the absolute best out of your media.
There’s also all the expected smart capabilities you’d expect of a top of the range TV, and, let's face it, the Samsung QE55 just looks cool. At the time of writing this TV is down to £1799 at Currys – down £400 from £2199 but if you were to buy it with our scheme you could save up to £215.88 on top of that. That’s a total saving of £615.88.
CANON EOS 200D DSLR Camera with 18-55 mm f/3.5-f/5.6 DC & 50 mm f/1.8 STM Lens
This incredible DSLR camera is perfect for the photographer in your life (especially if that’s you). With a 24.2 Megapixel sensor, an 18-55mm zoom lens and a 50mm prime lens, Full HD video, Vari-angle touchscreen and full connectivity for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC there’s nothing you won’t be able to do on this stunning Canon camera.

SONY SRS-ZR7B Wireless Smart Sound Multi-Room Speaker
The SRS-ZR7B from Sony lets you set up the music in your house from one central speaker. You can hear the same song everywhere so that you can carry on listening as pop through the house to make a cup of tea, or pair up compatible devices with SongPal Link so that everyone at home can listen to their own tunes. You can stream music easily from Spotify Connect or Google Cast and High Resolution Audio elevates music above CD quality, so that you get the best listening experience possible.
Today, it’s available in the Currys sales for £199 – down £130 from £329 but with the added Techscheme savings on that sale price of £23.88 you’ll save a total of £150.88.
ACER Iconia B1-7A0 7-inch Tablet
Lastly, we’ve picked a great little tablet from Acer. It’s not necessarily the all-singing, all-dancing affair you’d get from an iPad, but it’s a great low-cost option. The 7-inch Android tablet is great for streaming movies at home or on the go, has 16GB of storage with the ability to expand up to 128GB and the battery will last a full work day. That’s more than enough for the average tablet user.
At Currys you can pick it up for £59.99 – down £20 from £79.99, and Techscheme savings of £7.19 will inflate those savings to a total of £27.19.
These are just a few of the excellent 5-star products available in the current Currys sale, but Currys have got great savings all year round, so being prepared and buying through Techscheme could net you market-leading prices. All you have to do is make sure your employer is signed up, so if they aren’t already – why not mention them to us?
