What's my NUS number

    I am trying to register online on Waterstone's website to order as a student...and it asks me for my NUS number.
    I'm enrolled in uni and everything, but if I try to put the number it says on my card (even with or without the /1) it says that "could not be verified).
    I've tried even the UCAS one...

    What's my NUS number then? It is supposed to be the one in my student card, isn't it?
    Or should I get it from the NUS (even if in my card it says I'm a member) ?

    Hey
    I have a 7 digit number on the front of my NUS card (Kingston) and to make it up to the 18 digits Waterstones seems to require I just put lots of zeros on the front and hey presto they agree that I am a student and I can save money on ridiculously priced academic books and trashy fiction! Happy Days. H x

    Kingston has a student bookstore anyway - You get your discount automatically there and you don't have to pay P+P on their website.

    I think you're trying to put your University ID Card number in. That's not an NUS card, it's a Uni ID Card with the NUS logo on it.

    You need an NUS Extra card to get the 18 digits, or you could try the adding 0s trick.

    thanks Spotty Dog but I am on Wandsworth SCITT and live in Croydon so I don't actually make it anywhere near Kingston unless I really really have to! If you sepnd over £15 there is no p and p at Waterstones anyhow.

    Do they find out you used the 18 0's or have you all gotten away with it?

    If I use it they wont track me down or anything ?? p

    Haha, just bought an item of clothing and I saved 20% by putting 18 random digits into the 'NUS Student Number' box. I don't even have an NUS card. Fantastic, I love you guys.
