After going to use my Varsity card on Play the other day I realised it had expired.
I have just recieved an email saying the new card is out today.

Just pop into your local Varsity with £2 to get one (plus they usually chuck in a free book of vouchers with it.)
It gives 5% off on all items at Play.com, as well as allowing you to save money in Varsity bars

They used to have them available on-line here, but it will probabaly take a few days before they change it to the new card: varsitymanchester.co.uk/ind…htm

You've set the expiry date as yesterday, which is why this has instantly expired. ;-)

Yes, they're not a student card. Well worth having one.

I was worried they might not continue the Play.com discount this time round, so that's good news.

just rang the manchester branch where they mail them out and nice lady told me that allthough it says 2007/2008 you will get 2008/2009 card as the others are long gone just website hasnt been updated, said she was going to inform manager of the need to change website details, so should be fine to go ahead and order via paypal.

Well done Katya1971, rep left for you.

Great, thanks for the reminder. Worth it for the play.com discount alone!

Cheers collected one this afternoon

I posted this deal last year. This year they have teamed up with even more people like:

Blockbuster rental (3 months unlimited for £15).
EA Games store - a massive 20% off (though probably RRP).
Holiday Inn Express.

Seems good deals. However the site is playing up. Whenever you click a deal it says "register to find out more" even though I have registered and logged in. Annoying!

Also - last year I got people cards. Willing to do so again (you only need card number for discount) if people pay me the cost of card + small paypal fee of 5p or whatever it comes to.

No worries - wasnt having a go! Just came to post the deal and found that I was a few hours too late due to being at work!

Here is the original post from last year which should answer any questions:

hotukdeals.com/ite…on/

so if i use this card and get 5% off, can i also use a 5% promo code (if there is 1) at the same time to get 10% off?

Could you get me one Babbler? I would pay via Paypal gift

looks like website is now updated - just got one from there £2.

Has anyone tried this on Play yet? I'm entering the card number in the voucher code and it says it's invalid.

Ordered for £2, cheers :thumbsup:

No, you'll only get one discount on it. However you can still use quidco.

All those who have asked me for a card - I dont mind still getting you one but if you want to you can get it here:

varsitymanchester.co.uk/ind…htm

now updated as stated.

Let me know if you still want one from me but not sure there is much point now? Am happy to help!

Cheers for this, ordered myself one, heat added.

I've ordered one of these cards but it says "Have you remembered to fill in the date and image number of your picture?" What does this mean?

Is it just a question of registering it when it arrives to receive the discounts from Play.com, etc?

The funny thing is, these cards are actually the least use in Varsity Bars! Their drinks prices are so expensive, this discount only take them down to slightly expensive instead of hideously expensive!

Yes - registration doesn't actually seem to do anything though.

I've just ordered one online too, and was confused by your question until I finished my order. The website says:

Photo and Key Ring Orders Only - Did you remember to fill in the date … Photo and Key Ring Orders Only - Did you remember to fill in the date and image number of your picture?




Thanks for pointing this out - I'd never heard of Varsity cards before! Similar to Scream pubs 'Yellow Card' except that only gives you cheap drinks, not the other discounts...

Original Poster

Yep, the drinks in varsity are way overpriced...but the book of vouchers you get with them are normally well worth the price...and you'll make the £2.00 back using it on play in no time at all.
Remember, you have to register it on the link I provided in the deal itself!

So has anyone actually got this working with Play.com? I'm having no luck. The last card I had worked fine...

Original Poster

markross, have you registered it on the varsity website?

the dandy p;2784980

markross, have you registered it on the varsity website?



Yes I have registered - I don't think it actually makes any difference though. Have you got it working?

uh oh ... not working on play?

Original Poster

I am leaving in about 30 mins to go and pick mine up...and yes with last years one i had to register it before i could use it on play, otherwise how can they validate it?
It will definately work with play, it even has the 5% play logo on the back, it will probably just take a few days, it was afterall only released yesterday.
K9plus1...yours doesn't work on play either then?

Anyone had this working on play yet? im going to order one for £2 but would be good to know in advance if its working.

Just read the website. confirms you get the 5% off play. 25% off a £20 online order at dominoes is going to be dangerous for me lol
