Become a student and get an NUS card for £16 all-in! (Excel IT course from GoGroupie £4)

Found 1st May 2016
There has been similar offers posted before, but I've managed to find a course and NUS card £16 all-in which is the cheapest I've seen.

For those who don't know how to become a student, and become eligible for an NUS/NUS Extra card, here's how in 3 simple steps:

1. Purchase the £4 eCareers course, found on GoGroupie here:
gogroopie.com/dea…rse

2. Active your voucher (instant) on the eCareers website here:
e-careers.co.uk/red…her

Remember to be careful when going through the T&Cs, and only accept the FIRST box, or you'll need to wait 7 days before you can access your course.

3. Once your course has been activated and assigned to you (you will receive an email once this has been done) you can head over to NUS and sign on up as a student. Be sure to select eCareers as your place of study.

Link: cards.nusextra.co.uk/?ut…tra

NUS may check your eligibility with eCareers, so make sure your data (Name, DOB etc.) matches up!

Have purchased mine, and received my card.

This is my first post, so please don't roast me ;-)

it always amazes me how easy the NUS make it for people to just purchase a course and become a member. Just shows how money can go to company's heads.

however in terms of the savings you can get for the price this is a cracking deal, especially as it includes amazon. Heat.

It's cold because on the NUS site you don't even have to be a student or show proof to order a NUS card. So what's the point of paying the extra £4 to become a student ontop of ordering the card

I've ordered a NUS card on the website, didn't have to show proof. Amazon accepts NUS as a proof of student status. I have it, 6 months prime free and then £35 a year for 3 years
Do you get a .ac.uk email address when you buy these type of courses?

They just require you to send a photograph of the card when you receive it. I did it a few months ago using Shaw Academy

No
Will this stop all the begging posts for Unidays codes ? from folks who just join to get a code and then forget HUKD exists ?- ie is this a viable alternative ?

You don't need a course to get one just enter false information they don't check. I haven't been a student in 3 years and I renew mine every year

The trick is you put "NA"
I just made a number up and have had confirmation the card will be delivered within 7 days
Say your doing an open university course... that works too.. got my 3 year card a few months ago for 36 quid.

I've just had the first lesson. Never knew about the mirror or pentaprism! (I haven't bought my NUS card yet though!)
