Great news for anyone looking to save money both online and on the high street - NUS extra cards are now available to all University employees.

The NUS extra card costs just £12 for 12 months and allows you to access hundreds of exclusive offers and discounts at a host of popular retailers including Amazon, Domino's, Dorothy Perkins, Odeon Cinemas, National Express, Superdrug, Miss Selfridge and many more. For a full rundown of all the available savings, visit the NUS website.

The initial cost is more than covered if you use the card every time you shop, plus there is a free downloadable app so that when you are out shopping you can quickly check if there is a discount in a certain store before you buy.

Lee Hornsby, Head of Relationships and Culture at the Students' Union, said: "You can buy your card online or at the Students' Union information point at University House. You don't need to bring a photo as we have a camera here to upload an image for you. It's a great opportunity and perhaps the most exciting new offer is ten per cent off groceries at the Co-operative, all day every day."

Ricky Chotai, Member Support Advisor at the National Union of Students, explained: "University employees are very welcome to take advantage of NUS extra and the fantastic online and high street discounts the card offers.  Not only will the individual benefit, but each sale provides valuable income for the Students’ Union which is then reinvested and spent on services for Salford students.

To buy a card online please go to to apply and select ‘Buy your NUS extra card now’, You will need to apply under the normal student application, however under the course details please select ‘other’ as a member of staff.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Lee Hornsby at the Students' Union at
