Credit goes to sinxa for originally posting the deal at the start of the year, used it to get Amazon Prime Student: 6months free prime and then £39/year. Had a look and the deal is available for another 5 days for those of you who may have missed it.


How to become a student, and become eligible for an NUS/NUS Extra card, in 3 simple steps:

1. Purchase the £4 eCareers course, found on GoGroupie here:

gogroopie.com/dea…rse

2. Activate your voucher instantly on the eCareers website:

e-careers.co.uk/red…her

When scrolling through the T&Cs, only accept the FIRST box, or you will have to wait 7 days before you can access your course.

3. Once your course has been activated and assigned (you will receive an email) navigate to NUS and sign up as a student. Be sure to select eCareers as your place of study, the card itself should cost £12.00.

Link: cards.nusextra.co.uk/?ut…tra

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

List of all discounts here:

nus.org.uk/en/…ts/

My favourite NUS Discount:

6 months Free Amazon Prime Student membership followed by £39 a year student membership.

PLEASE READ COMMENTS, MANY USERS REPORTING ENTERING 'Study Smart Online' WHEN IT ASKS FOR PLACE OF STUDY WORKS INSTEAD OF PURCHASING A COURSE FROM ECAREERS.
Community Updates
* * * IGNORE THE OPS ADVICE TO BUY A COURSE - YOU DO NOT NEED TO * * *


Enter 'Study Smart Online' on the NUS Extra site where it asks for Place of study. If it asks for Course reference just enter any number or name.


(I am currently looking at the NUS card i received after entering Smart Study Online, for you doubters )



The Two biggest perks (for me) are
1. Amazon Student (free 6 months trial then £39/Year)
2. Co-Op 10% off (certain items excluded)*

*Bizzarely, their T&Cs say Baby milk is excluded - yet i managed to get a few quid off it the last time i went in!

Could someone let me know why I'd want an NUS card really though? Swear it's basically only Co-op that give you a discount these days
This Keeps being posted EVERY MONTH or so, yet the OP who posts it always seem to make out that you have to pay for a course. In case its not clear enough:

YOU...DO...NOT...NEED...TO...PAY...FOR...A...COURSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Simply type in "Study Smart Online" in the 'Place of Study' box. If it asks for course reference just type in any number.
Follow the procedure through and it will complete. Pay the fee, wait a week or so and Viola!
Enjoy your new card and the £4 saving!

If in doubt, futurelearn.com has a bunch of free online courses run by legit universities up and down the country. You can easily enrol on one of those if you need any course details to get the NUS card.

NUS is laughable, and that's coming from a student (a proper one).

It worked for me but I used the voucher via the email as it goes to e-careers lifestyle. I initially had the same issue with the code when trying to just use e-careers.

All ok now, must have just taken a while to go through
Any idea how long it takes for the course to be active ?
Can we apply for 3 years NUS? Also, in the NUS form, there is a question: "What is your Student Password ?"

Any idea what they are asking for here? The field isn't protected so whatever you type in is exposed

My daughters 3 year NUS card ends soon and there’s no doubt she will miss it when it ends!
A full list of shops accepting it and giving a discount was posted on here a while back:

Anything which reduces Amazon's tax-avoiding profits it's good from me. Not using the high-street destroyers at all would be even better.

No. Unidays needs a .ac.uk address.

Take a bit of time to research it, if you are interested.
Why don't you have a look at their website,and see the hundreds of discounts you can get?
nus.org.uk/en/…ts/
10% off at Superdrug, and 20% around Christmas alone does it for me!
10% New Look, Miss Selfridge, Jack Wills, Asos, Accessorise, and plenty more.
Loads of discounts on eating out...40% Pizza Express, 25% Presso, 20% Pizza Hut, Frankie & Benny's, Dominos.
Also 6 months free Amazon Prime student trial, followed by 1/2 price for 4 years..
1 year ISIC international card on the reverse side.
There is a lot more, and as you know, 10% at Co-op.

Hello,

As you seem to be up to speed with this just wondered if I have to wait for my card to get the actual number? I've signed up and have the email etc but physical arrival takes 7 days to arrive.

Also do you have any experience signing up for amazon without the .ac.uk email address just using the NUS card. Looking at the website they want all sorts from you that I'm not sure is available from this course

Thanks
Does anyone know if this student status works with council tax?

Amazon still profit from this

On a side note, considering any free course on these sites works to get nus, I don't understand how these posts always go hot

They wont accept an online course, otherwise everyone would do it! You have to be full time a registered college or university
Purchased the course and received a voucher code via the email. However unable to redeem on eCareers lifestyle or eCareers. Anyone had similar?

Half agree. You definitely don't need to pay for a course (see DJBenz reply above, there are many other options too). But, you don't have to commit fraud either. TBH I would rather pay £4 than lie on the application.
If you get a NUS card now when is it valid until? Is it a year or the start of the next academic year ie september?

Depends what your conscience tells you. Some would argue that pretending to be a student and buying a course just to get an NUS card is wrong.
But yes if it makes you feel better then you can "legitimately" apply for a free or paid course as mentioned.

Unless I'm mistaken, it unlocks a limited selection - but noway near their full library. If you want to listen to full albums you need the music sub. If you have an Amazon echo you can get a cheaper sub that is limited to only 1 device
If using just an NUS card to sign up for Amazon Prime, how are people getting round providing proof of their course!?

There a list of things it's says you need like a .ac.uk email address, a letter with your uni course details etc.
I contacted them about using my NUS and they said I can't have the Prime discount until I prove my course info.
can you select the 3year option - £32.

Buying the course isn't even needed, I chose 'eCareers' as the institution when signing up for a NUS card and the card arrived ok.

Yes. I have done this before and have had it 6 months now. Just renewed at £39 and says will charge £39 again in 12 months time on my prime account.
Had a student ticket for my football team season ticket. I saved £200.
