NUS Extra card for £5.99 with website glitch

AntylaAntyla

Website glitch means you can get the card for £5.99 instead of £11

Click on NUS Extra
Sign up for a card
When you get to the payment screen, close the tab/page
Re-open the website and log in with the details you used on the sign up page
Click on 'my account'
'Replacement cards'

Order a replacement card. Comes to £5.99

Even though you didn't buy the other card, it still works and accepts paymentna dn I have received a confirmation e-mail.

**Unsure if they are actually going to post these out but worth a try for students.

    Not so much a "glitch" as a "scam".

    I didn't intentionally scam. I closed the page until I could get my credit card details and then when I click on the card page, it kept telling me "a card has already been ordered with this e-mail".
    I then went on the my cards page and it said I had placed an order even though I hadn't paid

    So I ended up buying a replacement card as the only way I could buy a card with my student union e-mail!

    Nope, they had a half-price sale on not long ago though.

    Yeah sadly :( I'm not sure if you can order one that starts being valid for the next year though

    Given it a go. We'll see if they accept or not!

    I noticed that it would actually be only £4 for a replacement but they are charging £1.99 for the replacement ISIC card which is currently being offered free when you buy the full price NUS card. If you remove this from the original order (which you don't complete) then you wouldn't be charged for the replacement (if you don't want it that is).

    I got an nus this year and have not used it for anything yet, not sure it was worthwhile.

    Cineworld cinema 3d film tickets are £2.61 cheaper for students, and regular films are £2.06 cheaper too. Me the Mrs save a fortune. The NUS card pays for itself.
