What does the membership include?

The price above is for individual membership. Joint and family memberships are also available at a reduced price and qualify for the cashback. Plus, currently, buy membership online and you get a free set of binoculars.

National Trust membership gives you free entry to its houses and gardens, as well as those of the National Trust for Scotland and partner organisations. Membership also includes free parking at National Trust carparks, great for saving on car parking costs in the summer months.

Why would the National Trust do this?

Remember, the National Trust is a charity that doesn't receive direct government funding. The more members it has the more likely it is to raise funds from purchases in its shops and restaurants when they visit. So of course if you use your membership regularly, not only are you learning more about the history of the places you visit, you're also contributing to the upkeep of the nation's historic houses and monuments - well worth it!

This is excellent value. I am currently a member of English Heritage and at this price I can afford National Trust as well. Will be nice to visit some historic buildings that have a roof on for a change. lol. Heat and rep added.

I did this a few months back. It takes 3 months for the quidco to be paid. In my case also, the amount was only validated a week before it was paid. I did what lots of other people on here did, and bought a single membership for myself (£34.50 with £21 quidco) and 3 seperate memberships for my children. (I think the rate for DD at the time was £15.75, quidco was paid for all memberships-all 4) Beware that you need to clear your cookies and cache, otherwise you will only receive one amount of quidco cashback.
Mine worked out really well and I paid nothing for our membership, before anyone has a go at me for this, a) lots of people did this-not just me, and b) we would never have joined or visited without this deal and have spent a lot more money in National Trust properties than we ever would have without this deal.

The binoculars are rubbish!!!

i see no mention of a free rug online.....

Yeh this is a good offer, i did it last year - the free rug was good enough on the back seat of the car for the dog to sit on! no problem getting the cash back on quidco

:?

Do the national trust do their usual trick of asking if you would like to also make a donation after you have paid and when you say "no", they treat you like scum of the Earth?

Anyone know if quidco £20 payment works for a 18-25 membership?

Yep, so they're paying you to be a member.

The Lady and I have been doing this for two years! :-D

I don't see mention of a free PS3 either, what a rip. What else aren't they giving away?

No they do not. Which charity organisations do that?

I will put the cat amongst the pigeons here and remind you if you sign up to the NZ NT it costs $69+$10 postage NZ dollars which works out about £29 for a family membership. This entitles you to go to NT sites anywhere in the UK. I did this last year and it has been great and not even had to use a phoney NZ accent which is good because I sound Welsh! Before anyone gives grief about UK NT not getting the money etc etc.. I should point out that they get money in other ways i.e. when we go into the shop money they would not get because I would not be a NT member. There is also the issue of parking which is not included with the NZ NT but so far I have not been anywhere were there is a charge for parking and we have used it quite alot.

the original post mentioned that when joining online you get a free rug. Would prefer not to have comments like that thrown at me, thank you.

Well rep to markbloke as I chuckled! :thumbsup:

when does this expire?

i am due to renew in march.

thanks

Thanks for your answer. Another question - if you pay by direct debit (which is cheaper), does the money for the whole year just come off instantly so that you can then just cancel the direct debit straight away? Cheers

yeah it comes out straight away & you should be able to cancel it with your bank once it's gone through. NT will say to you in your opening letter that they also want to be informed, so make sure you tell them

They've been doing this offer for years, so will probably still be on in march, but you could always buy now to be sure. I think they have an option to post-date the membership start date for gift memberships.

Mine was DD a month after I joined. I then cancelled it online.
And benhi, this offer has been on for at least 8 months, so I can't see it ending before March....

Or you could take out a new membership with a slightly different name (initial etc) I don't mean dodgily, I just mean something that differs slightly from your current named membership.

Another thing that is worth mentioning (although it is slightly naughty).

The National Trust (for some strange reason) decide that it's a good idea to send you next years card before you've paid.

So if you forget to pay...........

;-)

Brilliant, thanks, we were talking about joining only last weekend. Heat added. Thanks all for the feedback...

Yeah, I cancelled for this year and they sent me a new membership card, parking sticker, guidebook etc while at the same time asking if I would like to rejoin.

Totally inept administration...

Honestly though, I would pay to rejoin before I'd use these things - it's only £15 and it's a *charity* - trying to rip off a charity makes baby jesus cry

Certainly do :thumbsup: The reduced price you pay for entry still includes the voluntary contribution to the park etc. and when you say I don't want to pay it, they are like, "EXCUSE ME, DID YOU SAY YOU DIDN'T WANT TO PAY THE VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION?" loud enough so that everyone behind you hears as well.

but not that I've ever tried that....

If you are on internet explorer go to tools - internet options - browsing history(delete) - delete cookies

ChrisPalmer;4200062

No they do not. Which charity organisations do that?



Oh but they do. I went to Cragside Hall, paid the entry fee and then was asked if I would like to pay more as a gift.
The same happened to my friends at Hardwick Hall.

Simple answer - "No".

Excellent price as i didn't renew when i lost my young persons discount

Forgot to delete cookiest but both memberships have tracked in quidco already!

crazymacaque;4202404

Yes, they will all track, but only the first will validate, and get paid. (this is what happened to loads of people, so they just received the first lot). No problem with the tracking, but the validation takes months.

You may get an extra gift if you register yourself then register someone else (partner) who can also use the quidco.

Thanks for posting. Heat and rep added.

I believe that its not right to "get a good" deal from an essential charity such as the National Trust.

Normally good deals are good, because its a win for the consumer against the big fat profits of companies, but the £20 cashback from quidco comes from money the National Trust would otherwise spend on conserving heritage sites and historical buildings.

I urge others to be as ruthless as they can in getting good deals against companies, but when it comes to charity, please pay full price.

I've got to agree with boonkoh, if you are using this deal to buy yourself a membership and intend to use it then great. However, if people are taking out loads of superfluous memberships to profit on the quidco then that is really low.

Maybe take out the deal, then give the difference back as a gift when you next visit a National Trust place.

Taking advantage of a charity? An interesting point, but I suspect a number of people taking advantage of this "offer" wouldn't bother to join the National Trust at all if it wasn't for the discount . Therfore it's all incremental revenue for the NT that they probably wouldn't have received otherwise.

I bought today costing £15, probably wouldnt have at the full price but do visit NT sites now and then. I'll just deal with the not contributing thing!

Thanks for this - I have just joined which I wouldn't have done at a higher price.
