    Just a heads up every one - Midlands Coop have stopped their 10% student discount with your NUS Extra card as of 1st July 2014. Is this on the NUS web site? NO! I called up the COOP and complained about this vehemently, and they said it wasn't being used by anybody! They sent me a £5 voucher.

    Now, I personally don't care about the voucher but I care about the fact that they've STOPPED the discount so I urge all students to call the helpline and complain, seriously, complain, make them send you a £5 voucher. Demand it and pretty soon they will realise that reinstating the discount will work out cheaper! If they can pay their Chairman for non-performance after a year in the job then they can damned well keep the 10% off and support us students!

    This is the number Tel: 01543 414140 (lines open 8am–5.30pm Monday to Friday)

    Hello all

    If you have an NUS Extra card you might have found that you used to be able to use your card to get 10% off your shopping at the Coop until recently. Well they've pulled out the rug from under us without any notice to the Student Unions or to the NUS as the promotion is still loud and proud on their site.

    There is a petition which has been started to ask to reinstate this valuable offer as it exists in other parts of the UK.

    As Birmingham has a student population of over 65k, it's crazy to stop it, don't you think, we pay enough and they made such a big thing about the collaboration.

    So I ask you, if you care about this and want your 10% for the new academic year please, please, please sign the petition, tweet, FB.

    Thanks!
