Valentine's Day - love it or hate it, you can get lucky with NUS extra


Share This Article:

Roses are red, violets are blue… you know the rest, and love it or hate it Valentine’s Day is fast approaching.

February 14th is considered the most romantic day of the year and therefore we are bombarded with red hearts, red roses, and heart shaped boxes of chocolates. But St Valentine certainly creates a division between the happily loved up couples who embrace the day and can’t wait to gaze at their loved one over candle light, and the singles who feel like seeing red as they are blasted with romance, romance, romance… arghhh!

To appeal to both the couples looking to create a romantic evening with their special someone, and the singles planning to celebrate (or commiserate) singledom with their friends, NUS extra is running a few special competitions that play on the love/hate valentine theme with a selection of prizes up for grabs to help you to either be a big lovebug or rejoice your single status.

Alex Butcher, Marketing and Partnerships Manager for NUS extra, said: “We know that not everyone looks forward to it, and so this selection of prizes should appeal to everyone. We wanted to make sure all our card holders felt loved this Valentine’s Day.”

For the couples there is a romantic meal for two at Zizzi’s up for grabs, as well as 24 long stem red roses and chocolates from Bunches, and five romantic chocolate pizzas courtesy of

If you’re sharing Valentine’s Day with mates this year you could win a dinner for you and three others at Zizzi’s, or a new outfit for you and an item for two of your best friends from Missguided, plus we’re pretty sure a group of fabulous single ladies would enjoy delicious a chocolate pizza too! 

Alex added: “As soon as we get close to February we are bombarded with red hearts and flowers and urged to spend, spend, spend, which can be hard when you’re a student.

"But remember, Valentine’s Day isn’t all about money. Whatever your plans make sure you check out the list of NUS extra discounts to save on presents for that special someone, or to save on a pampering night in with pizza and your single friends.”
