    You know, you don't have to bank with NatWest to get a young persons' railcard, right?

    No holds barred? Why has no one suggested 100% off everything?

    Anyway, I love my 40-50% Dominos Pizza NHS discount and 25% Nandos discount

    Also get things like cheap/50% off/2for1 tickets for things like the cinema, theatre, amusement parks, hotels, flights, as well as -% at a few clothing outlets and restaurants.

    Well that's much better than the Natwest 30% or whatever it is off. I presume you had to buy that yourself? However we are disputing the Natwest rail card here.
    Nope, it was free.

    I realise that, but, regardless, a free railcard gives discount and discount is better than getting nothing off at all. :yes:

    Ok, Let me give you an example.

    A train to london from where I'm from is £60, now that is a pretty much standard price, peak, off peak whatever.

    33% off that price would make it £40.20, that is really not worth me having the rail card for, I'd much rather drive it and save money.
    How on Earth can you say that anything FREE isn't worth having??? I'd get it even if I only saved 10p lol!! Better in my pocket than theirs I say!

    Personally, I'm rather glad I don't have to bank with Natwest, they have atrocious customer service.
    I've got a feeling I've said this to you before, but I've always found their customer service pretty good. Nationwide, now there's terrible customer service.

    Agree about the railcard though; plus, you have to do online banking for it. An £8 saving once or twice a year really isn't worth the risk.

    I don't bank with natwest or use their railcard.

    I get my own 75% rail discount. :sexface:
    I get 100% - hop the fence and get onto the platform (only travel rurally), proceed to board the train, wait for someone to enter toilet, when I knock on door and pretend to be the ticket inspector with the 'helpful' suggestion of passing their ticket under the door. :yep:

    The free railcard is great, if you are actually going to make use of it.

    I thought I read it right. Was just a bit shocked that anybody would do that! What happens when the real ticket inspector comes along to that person - the excuse 'somebody stole my ticket' doesn't sound that believable, does it?

    Well, no, but then they shouldn't have been so gullible, should they?

    I don't know what they say, though - I'm in a carriage far away from them by then. All I know is I've got a valid ticket, so no hassle for me.

    Yeah, I bank with Nationwide, Lloyds and RBS, and all provide me with excellent service. Just different experiences I guess.

    Thanks.
