The Defence Discount Service (DDS), operating since 2014, has 242,000 Defence Privilege Card holders.

A total of 12,750 companies participate in the DDS. The Ministry of Defence will not publish a full list of these companies as the DDS is operated by a private company (Blue Light Card Ltd) and this information is judged commercially sensitive.
