NUS Extra cards for all - no need to purchase a course £12

51
Found 29th Aug 2015
Now I know that NUS Extra deals get posted regularly, but bear with me.

you can purchase a year NUS card for £12 WITHOUT buying an online course first or studying.

Go to the NUS extra form and say that you are studying at an institute (I used CIPFA, but there are loads you can use, just google them).

It'll then ask for a student code - make one up.

I've received my NUS card in the post with no issues.

Then enjoy a year of student discounts including:

Apple Store
Spotify
Odeon
National express
McDonalds
And loads more!

You'll earn your £12 back in no time and make huge savings.

Hope this helps!

Great...a deal on how to obtain something fraudulently ..as thought this country doesn't have enough cheats and liars.

i think my grey beard would give away that i'm too old to even be a mature student

I've applied couple months back and they check your place of study. They said I was lucky that they didn't get the authorities involved.

Buy at your own RISK.

Bet you're a hoot at parties.

Also the money goes to supporting student unions. Take a day off

You are not a student therefore not entitled to student discounts... just as NHS staff and Army/Forces get specific discounts because they are in the Forces or work for NHS...

No wonder companies are reluctant to offer discounts anymore when people take advantage like you are doing!

Yeah there will be haters who don't agree with what i've said here.... everyone loves a bargain i get that but, taking advantage of something such as a student/nhs/forces discount is just really unfair!

Cold, many students could lose out if a few selfish people like yourself spoil it for the majority.

​When I was at Uni there were two people on my course who were over retirement age - one celebrated his 70th birthday in our final year.

Why would you abuse the system and spoil it for the real students, hope NUS catch on to whats happening and cancel all the fraudulently gotten cards with no refund!!!

Lol on what grounds were they going to go to the authorities? Trying to get a student discount card? And actually paying £12 for it. They should so the checks up front. Maybe you should tell the authorities that they almost gave you a student card.

Haha yeah they are really going to go out of their way to stop all that extra income they get as well as the collective numbers of cards they use to bargain discounts with. Use some logic

Think of it this way. They have a million members (as an example). They ask retailer for a discount. 'We have one million members so potentially 1 million customers for you. Please give us a discount'. If that number drops significantly, that bargaining tool is massively reduced. And as I said above, the £12 goes to supporting student unions.

I renewed no problem.
Also got my date of birth chaged so I'm under 25 and can benefit from some european train discounts.

Oh and to the usual cretins...

This isn't a subsidized scheme, retailers make money, NUS makes money.
Everyone makes money! It's just about building brand loyalty and enticing skint people who possibly would not have actually used the participating company to begin with.

Though I do take pleasure in non mature students being deprived of something, that's my right

Bullocks. I've done as in the OP four times, for four family members, so they each have an NUS card for passport-free travel between Britain and Ireland. Worked every time, paid the £12 fee in each case. No problem at all.

I'm actually entitled to one of these as I started a course in June but I've yet to get round to ordering one!
Does anyone know what the discount is at McDonald's? Any at Subway?

Interesting comments - Its wrong for companies to avoid tax (legal / morally questionable) but fine to break the rules to get an NUS card for discounts (arguably illegal / morally questionable).

Not voted either way - just interested in comments!

anybody know where i can get some moat cleaner?

The real question for retailers is if you would have gone and shopped their anyway without the nus card, if yes then all you are doing is reducing their profit margins but often there are alternative deals available for those retailers anyway. If no then the retailer is making extra money they wouldn't have got as we all have to assume that even with the nus discount the transaction is a profitable one for the retailer.

Not going to vote but again interesting to read some of the discussion on this. Interestingly has anyone thought of starting a paid discount card scheme for non students that offers the same discounts as nus. I reckon people would pay up to £25 for this.......

+1 on this. Even let me change my place of study so that it makes more sense..

Careful about getting this on the basis of McDonalds free burgers etc. They no longer accept this and will only accept a Unidays ID which has to be verified with a student email address or a valid Student ID card (which this is not)

Because there are so many fraudulent NUS cards out there!

This does my nut in.

WHY THE HELL DO STUDENTS DESERVE DISCOUNTS ON ANYTHING???

What have they contributed, other than racking up debt (unless bank of mum and daddy are paying) and spending student loans on booze? (granted not all are like that)

I think the idea is that they will contribute in the future.

I,ll just use this one, it's got d/o/b and number+ name.

They said they will get HMRC involved next time as I was trying to defraud this country's student union group as its fraud.

Remember I told you this.

​As if HMRC are going to give two hoots, and how exactly are you defrauding the student union? You are getting discount from stores you shouldn't be entitled to.

Think you got an over zealous phone ranger.
