I can't believe people are voting cold!!!

It appears that if you do a gift for a child it's £15.75 by direct debit. That means £6.25 profit on quidco and you get a free pair of binoculars.....

Cost seems to be £34.50 for direct debit - where is the £21 membership?
Still a good offer though.

It's showing up as £34.50 everytime I try and register

This price is only for 18 to 25 year olds as it states in the title!

The lifetime at £1,125 is a steal don't you think?:w00t:

Shelling out a bit of cash to this concern of preserving national historical importance is a steal seeing that the National Trust is after all a registered charity which relies on its members :thumbsup:

I could get my other to sign up as she is 25, but wouldnt that only cover her?
Not sure why i have to buy 2 differant memberships as im 28 and she is 25?

You voted cold for that?

So students have to buy family tickets? What is with some people!

Can't say most people could care less about New Zealand to be honest!

I did this deal 18 months ago. NT is really good. I have just renewed my membership becuase I think it is worth it even if I'm paying.

This "deal" could quite easily lead to a heated debate on here. Whilst I think its good that young people be attracted in by the "deal" a lot of 18 to 25 year olds being students, getting youngsters involved in supporting the National Trust is great, hopefully as they get full time work they will continue support by keeping membership with the National Trust.

However, really, saving money on National Trust membership by signing up to the NZ one, or by paying through a quidco cashback is really only going to hurt the charity in the long term.

Thank you OP, great for me and my toddler as somewhere else to go on days out. And being profit too!

I use my NT all the time, they have events for all tastes. In my area over the haloween period they have ghost tours and fancy dress events etc

Tbh I doubt they would mind too much. If it attracts some people to become members who would not ordinarily have done so then its likely that a fair number will renew their membership in the second year and longer so the NT may not gain any revenue in the short term but will in the long term.

Tbh in this day with age discrimination laws in place I would think it was illegal to offer someone a discount because they were under 25, but I doubt anyone would ever push them on the matter

The thing is that the Trust must be completely aware of this loophole and if they are willing to lose money that is their own problem!

Watch out, I took out membership with NTUK when it was offering £20 cashback, it never tracked, I questioned why and got nowhere!!! Just be aware that you may end up in the same boat....

Mine did in fact track and I would suggest it would if done correctly.

Also just to mention that I doubt this will hurt the NT since the director general gets a salary over £200,000

its actually £15.75 for membership not £21 .in the first year

The National Trust will actually benefit from this it will encourage people to visit their attractions where they will spend money thus recouping more money than they lose. Win win to be honest.

Great deal

Nope they can argue that under 25's don't use the national trust facilities as much on average, thus charging less.

By your principles nowhere should charge less for child admission :P. I'm afraid age discrimination doesn't work that way.

Yeah, either that or everyone should have a free bus pass even if they're not old

I signed up for this last year, originally due to the Quidco meaning it didn't cost me anything, but after using it a number of times I quite happily paid to be a member again this year.

May have cost them £1 for my first year, but they made that back again from me so I think it's worth it :thumbsup:

I aslo took advatage of this last time it was posted-tracked and paid out on Quidco.
Voted hot and recommend anyone who is interested to go for it.:thumbsup:

I'm absolutely certain that the NT would not run these deals if they didn't feel it was worthwhile to them. Overall they must gain in the longer term else they wouldn't do it.

I got my £20 too. No problems at all.

I think this deal is for 13-25 year olds not just 18-25 year olds

A little bit of a daft question here, but who actually checks you are the correct age? Ie if you were 26 and ordered as 25?

voted hot, shame im over that age and have tp pay £34.50

Awesome!!

I just signed up and for some reason my Quidco is tracking as £20???

Thats me told then......:whistling: I was afterall ADVISING caution to anyone EXPECTING Quidco, its never guaranteed no matter how CORRECTLY you do it!!!

Oh, and if you want to get pedantic, your comment re salaries is TOTALLY irrelevant! NT may be a charity but its certainly not a weekly "Coffee Morning" and requires a lot of direction and support. The finance team, PR and GROUNDSMEN command a salary so why wouldnt the top man?? Would YOU manage a multi-million pound organisation for free???? THOUGHT NOT!!!!! Peace out.

fyi, binoculars are useless .. 2 or 3x zoom, doesnt make any difference ...

This might sound like a daft question, but I don't know much about NT...

I have just become a member, does this mean I can take my girlfriend who is not a member to a NT place, or would she have to pay full price for entry?

Done.
Actually for 18-25 year olds paying via Direct Debit it's only £15.75 for the first year!
Hot, thanks!

Just signed up both my sons. Showing as £20 for each of them. I might put in an enquiry in a few days.

Mine's tracking at £20 too but at only £15.75 to sign up it's still meaning i'm £4.25 up!
