That's an astonishing price - voted HOT! :thumbsup:

Cracking present to buy for someone....you know, for that person you can never think what to get.

Yes, an amazing price BUT, if you enjoy and can appreciate the work the National Trust do, then join at full price directly with them.

They need the money!!!

The point of these offers is to encourage people to join who wouldn't normally join so I would take full advantage of the offer (if I hadn't already joined). If you feel guilty at having joined so cheaply (and you can afford it) you can always make a donation.....

BTW English Heritage and NT places are great to take the kids for cheap outings and if you have membership you don't feel you have to stay there all day to make it worth the entry fee....

Thanks just joined for myself and the 2 kids...remembered quidco too..Thanks..

I agree that if you've just heard about the National Trust through this offer, and can afford to pay full price for membership, it would be nice to do so because it is a charity organization and they never do get enough from Blair to fund their projects.

Agree with all above, however born and bred in Scotland, parents still live there. They buy me annual membership for me and kids but it costs half the price because Scotland, although can still use it in England to all the same places.

They also need members! Join using the deal and enjoy the visits. After a year, when you add up all the fantactic places you have visited and the money you have saved, then pay the full whack if you feel the need!

That's just a fantastic deal. Have been meaning to join the National Trust for years but have never got round to it - until now. Also just signed up with quidco. Does anyone know how that works. How do you actually get your £20 back? Voted hot by the way & thanks for posting.

Thanks for that. All makes sense now.

They obviously agreed the cashback with quidco based on the full membership price. I'm not saying they won't pay up, but I would not be surprised if they realise the mistake and decide not to.

For those who might want to help the National Trust on a long term basis without it costing you any money you may want to consider the National Trust Credit Card. This makes a donation to the National Trust everytime you use the card.

Also if you go via Quidco you will receive £8.50 cashback for applying.

Great to see such positive feedback about the National Trust. I have been a member of the National Trust for years and feel the work they do is wonderful.

As well as owning many buildings and gardens they also own thousands of acres of land in places like the Lake District and Snowdonia, protecting them from development and allowing farmers to still work the hills.

They also own thousands of miles of British coastline, again stopping development of houses and flats and "fun fairs". They own some of the beat cliffs and beaches in the UK.

When you are a member you also get a quarterly color magazine showing the latest work the NT are doing.

Even if you do not visit a NT single property a year it is great to know your £50 (or whatever you pay) is used to help protect our country from over development.

But of course if you DO visit properties it is a bonus. You only have to visit about 3 properties and year (free entry) and you have saved your yearly subscription.

Some of the places you can visit free as a member:

Stourhead - en.utexas.edu/Cla…jpg

Waddesden Manor -

Fountains abbey -

and hundreds more

Thank you for posting the offer. I have been meaning to join for ages. How could I refuse at such a cheap price!

Also on the same vane, the RSPB is hiding in Quidco as well somewhere if anyone is interested!

[SIZE=2]Fantastic deal - worth every penny, especially if you have kids. [/SIZE]

If people were not going to sign up to the National Trust at full price then going the Quidco route is good as £12.63 to the National Trust from each adult is better than nothing.

Some great places to visit, Stourhead is stunning!

Stourhead is fantastic ! Stowe park is great ! Snowshill is lovely ! Cothele is wonderful ! Buscot Park is nice...... the list goes on ...

JOIN TODAY !!... oh and take enough change for a cream tea !!!!!

remember this is a charity not a corporation.

Bottom line: give what you can afford.

Young people regardless of whether students or not can join for a 12 months membership for £15 via DD and its well worth it. (I've been a member for the last two years its fantastic to have)

This is also a great deal for fishermen.

The National trust own some great fishing marks (my local one is Cogden beach in Dorset) and this will entitle you to free parking!..

Since the parking there is £2 a day (and changes at midnight ARRRG!) this money to join would be recouped very quickly!

Hot!

Are the venues worth going to as a lone traveller? I've noticed a lot of them are family and group orientated - fair enough - but can you enjoy them on your own?

Hi Where are the RSPB hiding? Have tried searchin but nothing available. What category is it under?
Thanks

HI everyone,

Can I ask if Quidco will honour for two adult memberships ie £20 off each adult purchase? Not trying to sound stingy but we both work in social work organisations (not financially rewarding) so any bit that enables us to enjoy the beautiful countryside and helps preserve the historical sites as well, will go a long way :thumbsup:

Think quidco will only honour both if they are on seperate quidco accounts, hth

I think you should be able to enjoy a stately home on your own. It is nice to say "wow, isn't that lovely" to somebody, but far from essential. And the wardens in the rooms are often more than keen to natter for hours ;o)

If you care a jot about the countryside, the coast, rural matters or architecture (from medieval times right up to modernism) you should most certainly be a member of the National Trust, even if you dont get to visit much.

If you are in London don't forget Osterley and Ham House. The former a fantastic Adams creation and the latter a lovely Elizibethan manor house. Both doable by tube and a bit of walking. There are also a fewer smaller properties scattered within the 6 zones.

Why wouldn't they honour it on the same quidco account, it doesn't state that you can only do this once as on other things?

you're right it doesn't say ... i got Quidco validation for one but haven't purchased the 2nd one yet as cant afford it if it is £60+ for both of us. bummer to go alone though ... anyone experienced double purchases yet please share, thanks.

I would say so too. I am a lone traveller 80% of the time & have visited many National Trust properties before & thoroughly ( is that spelt right? ) enjoyed myself. I have joined - go for it.

Can anyone confirm, with me living in Scotland, if I take out a National Trust membership (rather than a National Trust for Scotland membership), can I use that to visit any of the National Trust locations in Scotland ?

On the website, on Membership Benefits:
The National Trust has agreements with a number of other countries. If you’re visiting any of these places and have a valid membership card, you could visit their National Trust facilities for FREE or at a concessionary rate. Be sure to check that your membership is valid before you go as you will only be allowed access on presentation of a valid membership card.

Click on 'Other Countries': [url]www.nts.org.uk[/url] is for Scotland so I'd say it's free entry for both.

oh forgot to add this is from the National trust Scotland site:
nts.org.uk/Joi…ts/

"Enjoy free access to over 300 properties throughout Britain (including free admission to National Trust properties in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and others worldwide)."

Has anyone ordered a child membership via Quidco? I'm interested if the tracks at £20 too as this will work out cheaper than buying the family membership - so long a Quidco tracks for all of them. The Child membership is only £14.63 + 3 Picnic rugs if 3 seperate memberships.

PS I don't feel bad about the cheapo membership as we always spend plenty in cafes etc when out & about - the profits will go to NT I expect.

If you pay in person more of your money will go towards your local area. If you only visit a certain area you may feel better knowing your money is staying local.

I've had a child membership tracked but not yet validated and also 2 seperate adult memberships tracked on the same account but not validated

Will I get 3 picnic rugs too?!

I just tried the child first & that has tracked. Now I will sort out the others, Thanks Cheekymole for the reassurance.

Scoutfinch

you're welcome but remember tracked DOES NOT mean validated
