How to get cheap gig tickets

Most students love to attend gigs. The average student, however, earns £112 a week and with cheap gig tickets sometimes hard to find, and certain events exceeding prices of £130, it’s clear that seeing your favourite acts can eat into your ‘fun’ fund.

For example – if you were to buy tickets via Ticketmaster to see Beyoncé who is performing at Manchester (Emirates Old Trafford) on Tuesday the 5th July it would cost at least £81.25.

What about the larger weekend festivals such as Isle of White Festival 2016? If you’re looking to go here, the cost is even higher at £208.20 for a weekend pass and camping.

Or perhaps you would like to go to Reading Festival 2016. Ticketmaster’s best price for a weekend ticket is £213 plus an additional £20 for early bird entry.

Cheap gig tickets are difficult to come by – in fact, the price seems to go up and up every year.

The brilliant news is that you needn’t pay full price at a National Trust venue. Purchase a National Trust discounted gift card from our website and use it for your admission fee as well as all your purchases at the venue including food, drinks and gifts, or for a National Trust annual membership. Enjoying National Trust discounts is easy with My ID Rewards; our National Trust discounted gift cards have 8% off the value you purchase, so you pay that much less to get in and for anything else you purchase during your visit.

A National Trust annual membership is an excellent investment as it gains you unlimited access to over 500 National Trust venues, many of which can cost up to around £14 per person just for admission. Membership for a couple (under 5s go free) is £105 per year (just £97 when you purchase with a discounted National Trust gift card from our website). If you purchase items such as food and refreshments within the venues using the discounted loaded gift card, you continue to save 8% on everything, every time.

By joining My ID Rewards, you can not only benefit from National Trust discounts but also discounted gift cards for many other participating retailers so you can save plenty of money on a daily basis.
