How to become a member

For nearly 150 years, people in Essex have chosen to become members of the Chelmsford Star Co-operative Society and now tens of thousands enjoy the benefits of membership.

How do I become a member?

Invest £1! See the Join Today page to join online or pick up an application form from any of our shops. Send the form back or hand to your local branch, and the card will be posted to you within a week.

Where can I earn points?

Points can be collected on our Membership card every time you make a purchase in a Chelmsford Star Co-op shop, whether that’s one of our food shops, Quadrant departmental stores, Co-op Travel agents or Co-op Funeral Directors (some products and services are excluded).

New members also receive 15% off their first three food shops.

What are points worth?

We give 2 points for every whole £1 spent in any of our stores*. With the announcement of our financial results at our AGM, usually held in May, we’ll know how much our points are worth. At the current rate, they are worth £3 per 1,000 points. Your points are then converted onto your Membership Card into your electronic share of the profits for use against future purchases in the Society.

The more you spend with us throughout the year, the greater the share of our profits you’ll earn.


* items excluded from points include:
PayPoint, mobile top-ups, SIM cards, gift cards, postage stamps, fuel, cigarettes, tobacco, lottery, foreign currency, infant and baby milk formula and some funeral third-party costs
