Anybody else had issues obtaining student ticket?

I’ve shown my UNiDAYS ID, the college have emailed the club directvyetvthey still say I haven’t provided suitable ID.

They want an NUS card which I don’t have (not paying £15 when UNiDAYS is free.

The NUS Extra Card is the ID required and that's pretty much that. They're not being unreasonable, it's just the way it is. It costs £12 for one year, £22 for two and £32 for three.

Due to his age my son has changed from a junior concession to full time student. He purchased his NUS Extra Card online today and it'll be here within seven working days. It's then a simple process to scan and email it to the club along with a small photo of yourself. Failing that just take them to the ticket office and let them sort it for you.

I had an NUS card (as a mature student) and saved shed loads of money on a variety of items ranging from clothing, trainers and restaurants etc; not just my season ticket. Up to you of course but it may be in your best interests to think again. I sent them a scan of my card each year when renewing. It was absolutely no hassle at all and I wish I was still eligible for one now.

It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Not exactly a huge outlay for the discount you get! Besides, you get some nifty discounts with NUS cards anyway.

Bloody students eh?  ;D

UNiDAYS is an NUS app which is free. If you search it you’ll see. They have partners in exactly the same way NUS does.

I have brought trainers, clothes, Spotify, phones, food & gym memberships with it but Albion are playing hardball.

Yep, had problems verifying my student status too. Told them that i don't have an NUS card over the phone, they told me to send some online screenshots of my Uni portal/emails and my students card, preceeded to do that, and then they told me it's all sorted and thank you.

Fast forward to yesterday, i get an email saying it's not actually all sorted, and they need an NUS card or acceptance letter. Anyway, i've just given up now and bought an NUS card as i can't be bothered with the hassle.

I don't need to search for UNiDAYS and see as I already know what it is thanks.

I also know club policy states you need a valid NUS card to purchase a season ticket at student rates (aged 18/18+ at the start of the season). So, and I don't mean this to be as rude as it may come across, it looks as though you're going to have to purchase an NUS card, scan it and send it to the club to receive your student discount. Alternatives. Ask to be changed to a young adult (U23) which is currently the same price, but whose rates may or may not change the following season; or ask for a refund.

I pointed out the discounts which are available in NUS format as an advantage of purchase, as a UNiDAYS ID will not guarantee you a student season ticket at this current time. Expanding the point, if you wanted to go abroad you'd need a valid passport. If you want to drive a car you need a valid driving license. These cost money. Likewise if you want a student season ticket down the Albion they currently request that you provide them with a valid NUS card, which also costs money. £12 to qualify for 26 Leagues games at a discounted rate, and just under if you take out the three year option.

The club are not playing hardball and they are not messing you about, it's a requirement of discounted student purchase (aged 18) and has been for a number of years. I'm taking  it you've just turned 18? Well my son turns 18 in July and I'm miffed to miss out on the Junior rate for his ticket, but that's life. If you're over 18 and you've slipped through the net previously then well done you, just not this season apparently........

Side note:
If you're a student under 18 you've opted for the wrong season ticket category, as you should have gone for a junior ticket (U18).

Does anybody know how long it takes to send you the season ticket?

I ordered mine on the 19th June and it's not arrived yet.

I was wondering if I needed to chase them up about it.

I ordered mine the first day they went on sale just after the prices were announced and mine hasn't arrived either. Not worried though I'll give it another couple of weeks before I start chasing them up.

If you’ve renewed you aren’t sent another one, they just enable this season on your current card. If it’s a new season ticket they’ll send it to you. Try giving them a call or an email and they’ll let you know

We were told our cards would come out in July, so don't worry.  Perhaps you won't get one at all, at the moment that would be  good news.

This is the pricing policy that should have been used in the premier league. Full house every week instead of ripping people off for £39

Some clubs will be ripping off away fans. No cap for away fans in championship.

Too true, Sheff Wed charged up to £42 but the average price was just a little more expensive than the prem. I found this from November last year on the subject.

Sorry to ask people, but if you were a season ticket holder last year and have renewed for this season, are we using the same stile card to get in with? I am sure when I renewed that the ticket office said it was.

Thanks

Yes that’s my understanding. I think they said it in a news article somewhere. We’ll all find out when we get there later today!

Edit: there it is:

Did you change anything like the type of tickets they were? Says above in the article that they will not be replaced. Also just found an email from the ticket office answering the same question from me saying: ‘You will just need to use the card from last season”
