Advantages discounts to be had
Disadvantages finding the discounts to be had
NUS is pointless. Unless you have rich parents and plenty of time to spare..and lets face it, if you are a full time student who is thinking of getting an NUS card then you will probably do not have rich parents and probably will not have the time (as you will be studying or working!) then this card is absolutely pointless. When I got one, I though brilliant, I'll get loads of discounts..and save loads of money. So far amazon.co.uk, I got ONE discount, which I cannot use again..so if you are gona do it, wait unitl you know ALL the books you need, plus any of your mates needs, then put them into one order and the discount might be worth it!?!?!??? But I doubt it.I'm annoyed as the website says you can get student discounts almost everywhere..but realistically clothes shops like Burtons are the only ones bothering. I went into WHSMITHS today, and was shocked at they do not accept student discounts anymore..infact 9/10 places I have visited recently do not accept these cards.
If you are thinking of getting one, I paid out for mine. Then go to ALL the places you think you'll get discounts and ask them face-to-face what the discount is and how long it is valid for, because if you ask me, this card has been a con.
