Thanks, just got a membership for myself and my girlfriend, took one phonecall and two mins - and I saved 20 quid!!

Good timing on the post, I am backpacking for a few months starting next week and was going to get a membership regardless. :thumbsup:
this is gonna sound and read like a really stupid question, do you need to buy the railcard to get the membership for nowt? and is it a worldwide YHA card?
Thanks. Just got my free membership. They asked for a railcard number, but i've got one so was fine.
DOn't suppose someone could do me a massive favour and email me their railcard number, even if you change a couple of numbers around, as i've just phoned up and they need the number to process the order.
Does anyone know if this is still available please?
Railcard Website states:
"Offer valid to 31 October 2009"
but also states:
"Offer may be withdrawn at any time and is subject to change"
