    I thought you could get the card if you were an Open University student but I do not see the Open University on the list. :confused:

    OU students are able to apply for the NUS affiliates card - there's normally an advert or flyer in Sesame, or look on the OU website

    The NUS make me angry.

    How do they get away with bringing in this extra card just over a year ago.

    Before that we used to get a NUS card free through the uni, just for being a student at a university that paid the annual fees to NUS etc. Now how do they get away with suddenly charging us this extra £10 to get discounts. If shops are going to offer student discount they should offer it to all students, just presenting uni id should be enough.

    This £10 is just extra money making for NUS, and is VERY cheeky. Don't we pay enough money as it is in tuition fees and alike in order to get the extra discount privelages that should come with being a poor student.

    We've turned around unnecessary bank charges on this site. How about turning this charge around to!

    Odeon Cinema at Cardiff Bay (Red Dragon Centre) gives you tickets at child price on production of a valid NUS card. I think that this must be national and not just Canterbury specific.

    I've just started a post grad course. Do I have to get a NUS card to get discounts or will retailers accept my Uni membership card? Sorry if this seems a dozy question but it is several years since I was last a student.

    NUS cards were being sold for £30/£40 on Ebay so they have done this to stop the practise as many stores were going to withdraw the discounts completely.

    Personally I think the £10 charge is nothing, you soon make it back. I got my card a week ago and have already used it in Republic buying jeans at £30 with a special 20% discount, saving of £6, New Look spending £38 saving £3.80 and Miss Selfridge spending £10, saving £1. Therefore I have already made my money back and I now need to order some books which I will get from Amazon and use my discount.

    I sent off for an NUS Card with the relevant information last month, and haven't yet received anything from them. I called NUS yesterday and they told me that they haven't received anything, and to re-apply.

    Another 28days I'll waste off my NUS discount period....! Don't understand why it takes them up to 28 days to process an application. Should be done within 7 days.

    It can be done online

    I got mine free with my student account at Lloyds. It was all done via NUSextra's website and I had it within 4 days.

    I am studying towards CIMA, so can I order it online aswell? Don't think I can. CIMA provided me with the NUS Card application form, and sent off a cheque for £10.

    Most should accept your uni card, except the ones which are actually NUS only (Just Amazon's 5%?).

    This is certainly the situation up in Glasgow, which isn't NUS affiliated, but I still get student discounts all the time.
