Order a replacement card. Comes to £5.99

Even though you didn't buy the other card, it still works and accepts paymentna dn I have received a confirmation e-mail.

**Unsure if they are actually going to post these out but worth a try for students.

Not so much a "glitch" as a "scam".

I didn't intentionally scam. I closed the page until I could get my credit card details and then when I click on the card page, it kept telling me "a card has already been ordered with this e-mail".
I then went on the my cards page and it said I had placed an order even though I hadn't paid

So I ended up buying a replacement card as the only way I could buy a card with my student union e-mail!

Aren't they this cheap at the moment anyway due to near end of Academic year as they expire in August

Dont these expire every august though, got one last year in may and it ran out

Nope, they had a half-price sale on not long ago though.

Yeah sadly I'm not sure if you can order one that starts being valid for the next year though

Given it a go. We'll see if they accept or not!

I noticed that it would actually be only £4 for a replacement but they are charging £1.99 for the replacement ISIC card which is currently being offered free when you buy the full price NUS card. If you remove this from the original order (which you don't complete) then you wouldn't be charged for the replacement (if you don't want it that is).

I got an nus this year and have not used it for anything yet, not sure it was worthwhile.

Cineworld cinema 3d film tickets are £2.61 cheaper for students, and regular films are £2.06 cheaper too. Me the Mrs save a fortune. The NUS card pays for itself.

nus card is the best £11 ive spent, only thing im going to miss about college is not being able to get one

You can get a 5% discount on alot of Amazon products. Worth it just for that!
