Peugeot extends its discount scheme to UK teachers

Published 24 August 2020

Peugeot's PRIDE discount scheme - available to employees and nominated family and friends - has been extended to include qualified teachers, following an extension of the programme to NHS staff in June.

As a thank you to those that have been supporting the country during the Covid-19 crisis, Peugeot has extended the programme to qualified teachers that have been teaching for at least six months.

The PRIDE discount is available for both cash and finance purchases – with the latter provided through Peugeot’s approved finance providers. Buyers can also combine the savings with the part-exchange of their existing vehicle.

To register, eligible teachers simply need to submit their details using the PRIDE Thank You form to unlock their promotional code and view the offers that are available on the all-new 208 and e-208; all-new 2008 SUV and e-2008; 3008 and the full plug-in hybrid line up. This includes the four-wheel drive 3008 SUV Hybrid4, as well as the two-wheel drive 508 and 508 SW Hybrid.

Once Qualified Teachers have found the offer that’s right for them, they can complete their order online and arrange to Click & Collect from their local Peugeot dealer or take free home delivery.

Sorry, but I disagree with this. Given the current furore about many teachers' 'reluctance' to return to full work and encouraging pupils to stay at home and in many cases refusing to even teach online, they as a group don't deserve this.
Even those who did better - how exactly are they any more 'special' than the rest of workers who did their jobs throughout lockdown? Some frontline healthcare workers, perhaps, but many other healthcare workers haven't exactly been busy (unless you think that participating in highly choreographed tiktok dance routes or refusing people treatments and twiddling their thums [again on full pay] being busy), have they.

Once again, someone ill-informed decides to 'knock teachers' for expressing care and concern rather than being 'work-shy' and 'lazy'. Obviously a person who has not had any teaching experience speaking from a position of ignorance.

Very sad. Speak to some real teachers. During term-time work hours often extend to over 60 a week, just to get all that is necessary done.

Be aware that I said 'some' teachers, not ALL teachers. Perhaps if you read my post rather than get all het up, you might have realised I wasn't making any sweeping statements. Noting that teachers have how many months off work compared to ordinary workers?

Maybe if the whole profession was like the best who didn't effectively 'go on strike for 5 months' then go on holiday for 6 weeks and then STILL are agitating to close schools FOR NO GOOD REASON, I might have had some sympathy. Schools should NEVER have closed, as many Northern European countries have ably demonstrated.

But I say again - why should they get preferential treatment ove many other people who have ALSO been working long hours, or, as many have been, made redundant through no fault of their own, but need to replace their car?

This is just pandering / virtue-signalling to earn woke points and a cynical ploy to get sales at the expense of the rest of us. We are fed up.

I agree, in our family we have have two who work in the local hospital and one who works in the local school, and have done so throughout the lockdown. The teachers have been quite vocal in their objections to coming to work or returning in September, yet the profession is being hailed as key worker status and getting offers and pay rises. None of my family are getting any of the special treatment mentioned yet the nurses rely on the ones who work in the hospital and the teachers who do make an effort to do their job couldn't do so without the support of my wife who gets nothing, neither do any of the care workers we know.

Before you say I don't know My wife is a teacher and I think it is discusting to offer teachers this over all the carers that have spent weeks living in care homes looking after our loved ones trying there hardest to keep them all safe while they have sacrificed there family life and because they do not work for the NHS they have not been entitles to the £500 that NHS cares was given etc etc. Peugeot you are playing the numbers game all you are doing is offing it to teachers because they get paid enough to afford to. your over priced cars why don't you put your real money on the table and offer carers the chance to pay a low cost monthly price for new cars at cost price to you changing them at 5000 miles so you can sell on your forecourts and get your money back

Even with the discount Peugeots are grossly overpriced for what they are. As my old Dad would have said "cheap car, expensive price"

  1. I agree, my 2008 was going to be p/ex for the new 2008, I went along to my local dealer fell in love with the style and design then was told the PRICE. It was approx £10000 more than the new price of my previous car to the same spec. Walked across the road and bought a Vitara and so far very pleased with my choice. This ended a 22 year relationship with Peugeot and replacing a car every 3/4 years.

(P.S. Don't expect a mad rush of teachers to the nearest Peugeot showrooms in the Midlands - people remember how you shafted the workforce in Ryton and legged it to Slovakia with your corporate snout in the EU gravy.)

Couldnt agree more Engineer Andy. My son in laws a teacher and has virtually had half of this year off on full pay. Im an essential worker and have just got on with my full time job, no reward,no fuss. Teachers have it pretty easy in my opinion.

As they say, “those that can - do” “those that cant - teach”.

My daughter is a nurse, if anything, Covid has made her life easier - she runs eye clinics and her workload is a quarter of normal due to the restrictions just now.

The way the public sector is run beggars belief.

Too many companies jumping on the bandwagon for free publicity.
