Next 'deal' will be a PPI refund calculator website
Can't believe how absent minded the lot of you are that you're forgetting about the £5 deposit you pay on each new oyster card.....money smart, you are not.

If anyone other than a MOD had posted this, it would have instantly been moved to Misc. This is not a deal, its merely a tip for getting a refund on something you have already purchased. It is a good tip for those that were unaware, but it's definitely not a deal in any sense of the word.
It's not hurting anyone by posting it as a deal so why don't you moaners go and do something constructive. I don't have an Oyster card but it is good to let those that do, have the easiest way of being notified of this. Well done the mods.


True, its not hurting anyone to post it on this site and I'm glad that it has been posted as it will help a number of people that were not aware you could get Oyster refunds - however that does not change the fact that by HUKD's very own definition, its not a deal. See below.

https://www.hotukdeals.com/help
What are the different types of deals?

Deals can be any product or service people can buy for a bargain, including two-for-one sales, reduced prices, and clear out sales.

Vouchers are additional discounts on products. Sometimes a voucher is a code you can provide at the time of purchase, or a discount earned by doing a survey. Vouchers usually involve a promotional code, so be sure to provide that when you post the deal.

Freebies are things you can get for free! Whether it's a free download or a free pair of socks, you can post it here. Free items included with a purchase are considered deals, since a purchase is still required.

Competitions can be anything you can enter for free online or in a store to win a prize. The cooler the prize, the hotter the competition will be. We do not allow raffles or soliciting votes for a competition which you've entered. (Eg, you cannot post asking for people to vote for your child in a Cute Kid contest!)

Ask is an area to post in if you are looking for a deal on something specific, or if you are wondering about a previously posted deal you are unable to locate.

For Sale/Trade is an area of the site where you can post items you would like to sell or trade. In addition, HUKD member accounts will work on fo.lk, a for sale/for trade community with additional features to help you sell and trade safely.

Miscellaneous is a place to list anything that doesn't fit into the other categories, including questions, general chat and links to deals or opportunities that do not involve products or services.

Feedback is a good place to discuss any problems, concerns or ideas you have for the website or the community. The feedback forum is monitored by moderators and we use your insights to help improve the site.


It's pretty obvious therefore this should be in Misc, as this is not a thread about a product or service people are able to buy, but actually a method of getting a refund on a product they already own.
Thanks for the reminder. Just claimed £14 back, sure I've got a couple more,lying around the house too. Might not be a deal in the true sense of the word but who cares!

I agree with other posts - this is not a deal. They are giving back YOUR money !
Yes and all the 'deals' on here are TAKING YOUR MONEY OFF YOU. I know which I prefer

I've still 80 HK$ left on my Octopus card from 2009. Can I get a refund on that too? ;)
Yes, but you have to create a deal here first !.

Thanks OP, this is a great deal for those Londoners that can use and benefit from it. Meanwhile, I'll just wait for the deal to move North and move to Andrid.
Some people seem to enjoy making things complicated. This is, no doubt, a HOT deal!

Probably a silly question - is there any way to pay via apple pay on a samsung mobile phone? Thanks!


The name Apple Pay says it all. Only valid on 6 or 6s phone models and certain iPads.

Gonna be refusing acceptance of parcel. I cannot even sign up in ta app, both in IOS and Android versions. Keep getting all sorts of BP errors. Reviews in the Apple store and Play store are extremely poor for the app. People cannot even top up which means that have a useless bit of rubber on their wrist.

i got it free when barclay launched it since then it have never used. it that really useful and worth? or is it just another show off accessories on your body?
well, it depends on individual preference. I posted it because its a deal, whether you like the product or not is another story.
i am not conflicting this deal.. in fact i voted hot.. i just trying to know about this band. just want to make sure i am not missing anything by not using my band.


If only there was some magical way of finding out whether or not you were missing out on something by not wearing this device. If only you could think of a way of taking it out of your drawer & using it???
This is very useful. Had the old one but this is better made. Not worth the £25 RRP maybe but use it a lot. Heat added too.
Is this like Apple Pay, from Wallet app?

You also seemingly pay interest on this so the prices quoted above are not representative (Z1-4 being £1901 after interest)

Rather, check if your employer does a season ticket loan scheme first and buy it this way. You aren't getting any greater discount through commuter club than the tenner offered through Metro. And your employer won't charge you interest on the loan.

I guess with this its not about discount - normally you would have to pay all at one shot to get 2 months free - but through commuter club although you pay monthly you get one month free in effect and also you get the annual gold card for discounts, lock the price for 12 months - Of course if your employer offers travelcard benefit that saves tax as well and is anytime the best option. But, most (80%) of the london employers do not offer this benefit


Not an allowable tax deduction.
Is this tube only?
The Gold Card isn't a discount across all of National Rail.
http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/ticket_types/46573.aspx

As well as being an Annual Season ticket, you also get a range of discount benefits, including discounts on other leisure rail journeys in the Network Railcard Area for yourself and others.
Annual Season tickets and Annual Travelcards are issued as Annual Gold Cards when:
the origin station is within the area, or
the issuing station and either the origin station, destination station or both are within the area.
A Gold Record Card will be issued if your Annual Travelcard is on an Oyster card.

The Annual Gold Card only gives you a discount in the SE no?

Gold card gives you discount on the entire british rail network unlike network railcard which is for the south east. Cheers!

Cold too expensive use the bus
why not to take a walk? Its free

Walking wastes expensive shoe leather. The most economical method of transportation is to purchase a very cheap old bicycle (max ten pounds is usually enough) and cycle barefoot.


Walk barefooted then.

PS railcards cannot be added to your contactless card for tube travel. This applies to all railcards, young persons, disabled, 60+ etc.
can you still get OYSTER monthly statement, even though you use contact less

I might be wrong but I did a lot of reading up on the NFC Oyster payments before it was introduced just over a week ago and I'm pretty sure your payment card needs to be linked to an active Oyster card for it to work properly. So I don't think you can just send back your Oyster card, get a refund and expect the payment card to work properly as an Oyster. Before this has been confirmed by TFL, I would advise against it.

Coming from someone who works at TfL for Oyster I can confirm that this is not true.

CPC is an alternative way to pay for travel and has no connection whatsoever with your current Oyster card. You can link your CPC to your pre existing Oyster online account should you want to keep track of how much you spend and for checking journey history.

Before the 16/9/14 the information about the contactless introduction on the TFL website stated that you needed to link it to your Oyster account, that is what confused me. You are right, it isn't necessary to link it to an Oyster card. You just need to register it on the Oyster website. Having just read through the T's & C's on TFL about contactless, I can see that you can track your journeys and fares without an Oyster card. You just need your payment card registered online.

I told my Sister about using her contactess debit card a few months ago when she couldn't use her car. She has never had an Oyster card & had no problems with her debit card. I cannot see anything on TFL's site about having to link it to an Oyster card.

btw...you have been able to use contactless debit cards on the busses for nearly 2 years. It's only recently that it's been extended to the underground.

I knew about the buses. It isn't just tube, from 16/9/14 you can also use contactless on DLR, London Overground and National Rail.

Hey,
This is great info. Marking HOT now...

Questions/Doubts:
1. I got the Network Rail Card for £1 (the person at Victoria station knew about it, and did it), as my wife has an annual pass. So does she have to travel with me for me to avail of discounts?

2. I got the 'Network Railcard' - what option do I select on the ticket machine, for getting the discounted Z1-6 off-peak day pass. When I click railcards, the 'Network Railcard' does not show. There is an option to select Gold card, but thats only for my wife right?
1. No, as long as the network rail card is under your name
2. I think it's best to get it from the ticket office. They only sell the network rail TC after 10am I think (well since it's offpeak)

just to make a few points here.

firstly, station staff do NOT get paid 40k! what a load of nonsense! its far less than that, do not trust the papers who inflate the salaries and are usually stating the station supervisors salary.

secondly, NO, the underground is not obliged to add this discount on for anyone! it is not a 'TFL' discount and is given by national rail however TfL have allowed this to have it added on to the oyster card. the actual discount card however if given by national rail and it is something customers must request however as stated, it is normally added without your request by TfL staff as a goodwill gesture. it is NOT part of your ticket with TfL and is NOT a TfL product. if you do not add your discount on, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure it is on as it is not part of TfLs season ticket nor in its terms and conditions. as i said, its a goodwill gesture by TfL so before bashing them, have a little think. i know this as my friend is a station assistant!

"My friend is a station assistant". What a great line. You must know EVERYTHING there is to know then if your mate works at an underground station. We'll all bow down to you.

As others have said, station staff are next to no use. So many of them annd they just stand around all day doing nothing.

Times have changed. There is no need for all these staff at LU stations. Time to stop wasting cash keeping these people in pointless jobs.

Hmm, I think you'll find that TFL and National Rail work in partnership with Travelcards and Oystercards shared use that either can issue and accept. So for all your capitalised words, that is not true.


TfL and National rail have some agreements but both are completely separate. Remember the days when National rail would not even allow Oyster to be used on their services and only after much criticism allowed it to be used? Yes there are certain tickets that both companies allowed to be used but i have bought many national rail tickets which do not cover the underground. TfL are a bit more flexible therefore have allowed national rail discounts to be added to their oyster cards but they are still not obliged to do so as its not their product. Just like no shop is obliged to accept a student NUS card. So yes they work together but both are two compeltely separate companies, different terms and conditions and rules. Cant believe to this day people still bash TfL for something National rail might do!

TfL = Transport for London
National Rail = Private companies!!!
