So now we’re in October that can only mean one thing… Halloween is only weeks away!




To get some inspiration on how you can use your NUS Extra card to bag a bargain costume that still looks super creepy, then keep on reading! Order your NUS Extra card online, or come to the SU to buy one in person (did you know you can pay for it using Books Plus?)


The Costume

You can get 10% off New Look year round with an NUS card.  You can also get a massive 20% off with Missguided all year round as well. Miss Selfridge and ASOS both offer 10% discounts to NUS card holders. If you shop in store at Topshop or Topman, all you need to do is display your NUS card for a 10% discount. Guys and gals, all it takes is the right inspiration. A red dress, or red trousers, could become a devil costume. Or an all-black outfit could be anything from a witch or wizard, to a cat. Be creative!




Trim that beard!

For those of you wanting to groom your facial hair for that perfect werewolf look, you can get 55% of Braun grooming products at Amazon. There’s no better time to try out some wicked Wolverine sideburns.




Don't forget to accessorise!

For the perfect creepy, or super cute accessories, head to Claire’s Accessories for a whopping 15% off. From devil horn headbands to flower garlands, they have everything you need to add the perfect accessory to your costume - all for less with an NUS card.




Perfect your look with make-up

Superdrug also offer a 10% discount in store when presented with an NUS card. Grab all your make-up essentials here for that perfect unicorn or fairy look. You can also get hair dye and hair supplies here if you wanted to go wild with your hair – go crazy!




Or make your own!

For you arty people who want to have a go at making part or all of their costume, you can get 15% off on artist materials at WHSmith when using an NUS card. If you wanted to paint a T-shirt with a particular design, or make your own accessory such as a sword to go with your warrior outfit, then this is the place to go.




Tell us about your costume ideas! Oh, and for a full list of the discounts available with your card, take a look here.
