Railcard Giveaway

I will admit this is a very weird giveaway to have on a beauty blog but I am trying to expand and do more fashion and lifestyle posts so when National Rail offered to give one of my lovely readers a year long rail card I had to say yes. I’ve had a rail card for 2years now and have got so much use out of it! I use it to get to university and even to travel on the tube and bus in London by buying a travel card. As I know a lot of my readers are students I think this is a great giveaway as I am hoping it will save one of you a fair but of money with up to 1/3 off.

More info…
Rail card will be re-demable online only (therefore can not be redeemed by mature students)
Must between the ages 16-25 (as it is a young persons rail card)
Giveaway closes Saturday 6th October 2012 at Midnight (BST)
Leave your email or twitter below (so you can be contacted if you win)
Leave me a comment below letting me know where you would use your Rail Card to travel to.

Good Luck!

They are also running a great giveaway of 6 rail tickets on Facebook here which is worth a look!

    Ahh best giveaway EVER. We don't have to be a student to enter, do we?

    I would use it to make visiting my parents cheaper – Colin and I are saving up for a mortgage at the moment so it would make life a lot easier if I could save some money on train tickets to see mum and dad every few weeks!

    This is probably one of the most useful giveaways ever! I'd use the railcard to travel between uni and home – this is my 6th year at university and I hardly ever get to see my family! On top of that it'd be nice to travel to see my friends who are all over the country! 🙂

    Ah this could potentially help me so much. I'm at uni in Edinburgh which is an 8 hour train journey away from my home town and as a result is a very pricey ticket. I had a railcard for the past three years through the bank but they don't provide one for 4th year even though all degrees at 4years in Scotland soooo I would love to have one to help my purse for the last year.

    This card saves me so much at uni, & mines due for renewal next month! I'd use for travelling from uni to home also my friends just gone to uni so be cheaper to visit her too!

  5. 29th September 2012 / 4:27 pm

    Mine expires on the 13th so that's handy! I would use it to visit my best friend who I met at uni – weird living without her now we are graduates… @margenotbutter

    This is a really practical and useful giveaway! I'd use it to travel to London and to the Lake District!



  7. 29th September 2012 / 5:37 pm

    I'd use the railcard to save a few pennies getting to University in Salford as it takes me 40 mins on a train! What a great giveaway!



  8. 29th September 2012 / 5:45 pm

    id use it for all the uni open days i need to go to this year! im most interested in falmouth but thats a six hour train journey from home! xx


  9. 29th September 2012 / 6:02 pm

    This post just completely reminded me that mine has just run out from last year! I'm at uni away from home and a rail card is essential for saving money! I visit my boyfriend every weekend and hour and a half away so would get plenty of use out of it! Such a useful giveaway xxxx

  10. 29th September 2012 / 6:02 pm

    I actually was thinking of buying one myself because i have to travel to uni every day!
    Great giveaway 🙂 xox

  12. 29th September 2012 / 6:21 pm

    Oooh this is such a practical giveaway! I'm always hopping on the train, so this will take the sting off the extortionate prices!

    Will be super handy for those who are travelling away for uni and want to save some money (train tickets are quite pricey nowadays :|).
    I would use the railcard to travel between uni and home…and probably on the odd trip to visit high school friends who are going to other unis.
    Thanks for the giveaway. 🙂

    -a nervous but excited 1st year student 🙂

  14. 29th September 2012 / 8:27 pm

    I'd use it for trips to visit my sister and friends at uni and getting to and from uni myself!

  15. 29th September 2012 / 8:49 pm

    I'm a fashion student so I'd love to be able to use the railcard to get to london lots and search for fabrics etc, also would be awesome to go and see all my friends at all the other unis all over the country 🙂 Great giveaway, thanks!


  16. 29th September 2012 / 10:18 pm

    i'd use it to travel to see my family, I moved to Kent to be with my boyfriend and hardly ever get to see them now, especially my sister who is studying in manchester!

    This is amazing! I graduated this summer, and my friends and I have ended up spread out all over the country, so I'd use it to go see them, to visit my boyfriend, and go home to see my family! 🙂



  18. 29th September 2012 / 10:47 pm

    I would use it to travel up to London more regular as I only get to go up once a year and I would love to visit a lot more as it is a wonderful place and great for shopping.

    i would use the railcard to go to poole with my fiance so we can visit his family, with rail prices as high as they are we can rarely afford to go, so this would help allot 🙂


  21. 30th September 2012 / 8:14 am

    I personally think this is a great giveaway!
    I'd use this to expand my blog basically. I get invited to a few blog events but I can never afford to go because the train fare is so expensive. So I'd use it to go to blog events because I live in the Midlands and they're mainly all in London 🙁
    Also, one of my friends lives in Scotland and I haven't seen him in a very long time. So I'd go and see him there too 🙂



  22. 30th September 2012 / 10:06 am

    I would use the travel card to travel to London for blog events and to visit some old friends


  23. 30th September 2012 / 10:19 am

    I would use the travelcard to visit my boyfriend aaaall the way up in Newcastle! (:
    Great giveaway.

  24. 30th September 2012 / 1:55 pm

    aww i think this giveaway is fabulous!
    i have my own railcard, been purchasing it for a couple of years now! it helps me when i travel to see my boyfriend. he lives in northampton and im from southampton so the pennies add up every time.

  25. 30th September 2012 / 7:14 pm

    what a great giveaway! so useful! hah i sound really boring but i would use it to get to college everyday in egham because it is so expensive! and would make my train journey more enjoyable if i could save some money for things that are more fun! 🙂

  26. 30th September 2012 / 8:01 pm

    Would love to be entered into this giveaway!
    I use the train a lot and would use the rail card to travel to visit my friends at their universities across the country.

  28. 30th September 2012 / 9:31 pm

    What a useful and practical giveaway!

    I'm going to University in Scotland (hopefully) next year and know I'll be getting the train home a lot, a rail card would vastly reduce my student pennies spent on travel!



  29. 1st October 2012 / 1:01 am

    This is such a good giveaway!

    I'm going to London at the end of October, so this would be so handy! Also i travel back and forth between Leeds and Leicester for uni and it always costs a lot of money so i don't often visit home. It'd be nice to be able to afford a few more trips and to visit friends at other unis too!
    Thanks 🙂

    What a fab giveaway!

    I would love to win this railway card because I have just finished uni and all of my friends are now scattered all over the country. I would use it to go visit them so I don't die of boredom.


  31. 1st October 2012 / 12:41 pm

    Fab giveaway! i would use the railcard to go home from university to see my family and i would go to glasgow as well to see my boyfriend who i NEVER see anymore 🙁

    I would use it to go to Sunbury and London and also Sheffeild and York because that is where a lot of mine and my boyfriends family lives and we dont get to see them often. Also Wesfeilds in Stratford (everygirl loves abit of shopping)

  33. 1st October 2012 / 8:25 pm

    Ahh, i think this is such a good giveaway 🙂

    My Uni is wicked, but in the middle of nowhere, which makes travelling to any sort of city for beauty products a bit of a drag. I'd use mine to travel to London and do a massive crazy shopping spree, and possibly visit the boyfriend if i have a spare minute 🙂 xx

  34. 2nd October 2012 / 8:37 pm

    Beauty giveaway are always fun but practical ones like this are good stuff 🙂
    If I won, I'd use the card to travel to uni. As it is, I need a new one as mine ran out last week!

  35. 3rd October 2012 / 7:04 pm

    I would use this railcard to go see my lovely boyf who is based miles away in the raf, and also my best friend who went away to uni this year 🙂
    Great giveaway !


  36. 4th October 2012 / 8:50 am

    I would use it to get to uni every day. At the moment I'm taking the bus as it's cheaper, but it takes over an hour each journey. With the rail card it'd be so much easier and cheaper for me!


  37. 4th October 2012 / 12:19 pm

    I would use the travelcard to travel to my father who lives in south west wales. I just moved to London for uni, all the way from north of norway, so I havent realy had the posibillity to travel to him that often before.

    I would use the travelcard to visit some of my friends who have just gone to uni and have invited me to come and visit them!


  39. 6th October 2012 / 3:00 pm

    This would probably save me a lot of money and time and is probably one of the best competitions that I've entered as of yet this year!
    I'm at University over two and a half hours away from where I live; train tickets are expensive and this means that I can rarely get home to see my family due to my student loan just not quite covering these costs. If I were to win this train card, it would vastly help but taking just a few pounds off of the price of a ticket for me.
    I would be beyond grateful to be chosen as a winner for this.
    Thank you for giving us such a helpful and useful opportunity!

    I would use this railcard to travel from Leeds to Brighton to visit my boyfriend! If it wasnt for these beauties it would have made the past 4 years living apart a nightmare!x

  41. 6th October 2012 / 7:19 pm

    I would use this railcard in order to go to London, because I have always wanted to go to London, but have never had the opportunity to go. I am in love with the image of London I have created in the last 15 years and would love to see it before my eyes.
