    25% off on TPE with Totum/NUS Extra if you're eligible for one of them (as many staff are) but not for a 16-25 railcard.

    But if you have a 16-25 railcard enter TPESTUDENT to bump the discount up from 33% to 50%.

    I have a question about the JPI Media Northern Offer, if I may? I've had a look on Northern's website but not understood. I live just on the edge of the region and our local JPI title isn't included.

    If I want a pair of Ranger tickets for a future weekend, for me and my boy, if I buy three identical copies of the Doncaster Free Press as I'm going through the station this Friday, will that give me everything I need to claim the offer, or do I need material from three different weeks?

    Might I be able to buy the ticket from the TPE-operated station at Grimsby Town, as there are two different Northern Services running through there?

    I've used 3 identical copies of the Yorkshire Evening Post to get my vouchers before now.

    You should be able to buy at any staffed station served by Northern.

    Thanks very much. It's very much worth my while going to WHSmith tomorrow then.

    Have people ever traded Northern newspaper vouchers after the papers stop printing them? (Am concerned about wanting to do a trip on 14 July but having run out of vouchers)

    It's the last week for the papers at the moment so they are still being printed, but to answer your question, I've never had any problem doing so. I usually exchange them a day or 2 before when I fancy using them rather then commiting in advance to a date.

    XC have 20% off using code MAY19 if you book by 2/6 and travel before 9/6. You can use the code as many times as you want.

    Should I be okay using three tokens from different JPI titles ? I've just bought the Ripon Gazette and Harrogate Advertiser, should I simply buy a third JPI paper or am I now looking for two advertisers and gazettes so I can take advantage of the offer (albeit with the ability to do so twice)?

    Didn't realise they now had the name of the publication on now you see...

    The terms say: "Affix three tokens from participating newspapers". So I can't see why not.

    How long has it been since the last LNER seat sale? Have they actually had one at all?
    Just curious as it's been a long time since there's been anything for my services anyway so I'm not expecting any change on that.

    How on earth are you meant to fit the tokens in the boxed area on the form without trimming the token down to size?

    This is the last one I can see in my inbox:

    "Don’t miss out on our Winter Seat Sale. We’ve got 250,000 tickets up for grabs starting at just £5 each way, for weekday travel between 4 January and 1 March 2019 inclusive. But hurry, you only have until midnight 22 November to book."

    I was hoping they might put a promo on to mark the launch of the Azumas. There's plenty of publicity posters here in Leeds right now but no sign of a special offer....yet.

    This one works with Railcards too. Some amazing bargains to be had - e.g. £5.90 Chester to Leeds!

    Heads up! I think it's the last day for the Northern tokens newspaper £10 offer. I just bought the last 12 papers from my local. They thought I was mad! :)

    So Omio appear to offer 12% cashback with Topcashback and there are 10% off codes lingering on the web...but it couldn't find the journey I wanted to make which involved crossing London and another connection. Chiltern Railways found it fine though, offering 5%.

    Anyone else having difficulties with the online form for the Johnston Press offer ?

    Every time I try and submit it, it just comes up with a "must submit a departure station" error, even though I've entred it.

    The drop down list of stations isn't working either.

    I had that issue. I refreshed the page until it worked and it did eventually.

    Is there any chance of having a separate thread for the Northern offer ? I missed the tokens this time because most of the stuff on this thread is irrelevant to me.
