Student Choice Gift Card - Now TV

19
Posted 1st Mar
Hi hotukdealers

I received a Student Choice gift card that I won recently (I'm not a student but apparently you can spend it regardless of that). I went on the website and saw that Now TV is temporarily unavailable. Does anyone here know if that has happened before and if so, how long it took before it became available again? I currently have a Now TV pass so wasn't going to get it today, but just saw that and didn't know why it would be unavailable.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Thanks, but I was asking if anyone knows when Now TV is likely to be available again on the Student Choice gift card options, not about the Now TV service being down

It's fine no need to apologize, you were just trying to help, I appreciate it
I got one like 2 years ago, never used it as it's rubbish, in store staff don't know how to use it and online is only rubbish merchants. Now TV passes all free on VeryMe right now so better not to waste your GC on that.

Though CS is good, they just sent me replacement card as mine had expired with full balance on it.

I don't have VeryMe. If Now TV doesn't become available when my pass expires with Now TV I will just use it at Costa if they know how to put it through the till. I might try buying a different gift card at WHSmith first though, on self service machine of course

I can sort you out, which codes do you need?

Thanks Jamie, I just logged in to my Now TV account and for some reason my cinema pass expired early? If you have a cinema code I'd really appreciate it, although I will contact Now TV customer service as well to see what's going on there. Entertainment pass is on my account until 1st May so don't need that at the moment - if there's anything I can give in return for the cinema code let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Isn't it false advertising then to have Costa and Now TV on the card? Could at least have notices on the gift card stands. I managed to buy a different gift card in WHSmith with mine using self service though

Wow thanks for that, I will do the same! Do these just go through as credit cards at self service? Do you use PIN or does swipe work?

It goes through as a MasterCard swipe card (select bank card as payment and swipe it, don't select WHSmith gift card or voucher) although do not get a gift card that has a multiple choice for amount (so Uber won't work for example) as they can't be bought on self service. A gift card with a single amount only will work. I got Nintendo eShop $15

Also, if you get a higher value gift card than what is on your Student Choice gift card just pay the difference with cash first. I'm not sure if it'll let you use the Student Choice card and a bank card together

Thanks, will take a look

No worries! Of course, best to use self service as it isn't actually allowed to get a gift card using a gift card in WHSmith let me know how it goes

40035387.jpgAccording to Costa they are still accepting them until the end of 2020. They're too late now anyway as I've spent my card like I said

I contacted Student Choice and they said it's stopped. Will try WHSmith anyway as I prefer GC
