NUS cards. - August 25th 2010, 08:58 AM

Well. when I go to college and I'll probably get one anyway. I don't really want to pay £10 for something I'll never use. Does anybody here have one? Are they actually any good? Do you get any travel discounts (that's what I really need)? Now I wish I'd got one last year.

Yes, I love my NUS card, I have definitely got my £10 back and more.

Cinemas do student tickets, buses around here do student tickets (an adult ticket is £1.80 and a student ticket is £1.) The trains here don't accept it but others do.
Most shops do 10% discount some do 15%. New look does special weeks were there is 20% student discount instead of 10%.
Some big chain restaurants do a student discount between 10% to 20%.

Have you looked at the list of discounts here http://www.nus.org.uk/en/NUS-Extra/Discounts/?page=1

I would definitely recommend getting one. They are quite dear but you get the money back and it is worth it. Have a look at the discount link Rachel posted. If you are going to be using the train I know there is a discount on getting a Young Person's Railcard. A lot of shops will take it for Student discount. There are lots of advatages in having one.

It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

That's like our "Student Price Cards (SPC)". I got mine for free by my parents, but I absolutely love it. I really recommend getting it, you'll never know how much you will save! Take it everywhere. =)

You can close this, I'm getting one. There's actually very little around here that I can use it on.

Same! Part of the reason I'm going to do a course on the OU is because then I qualify for one xD
