* Membership is free to join for life.

**The Gold Card is a subscription service and there are three ways to get one.

  1. A one off payment of 100 for life Gold Card membership. This offers the best overall value and wouldn't it make a wonderful Christmas or Birthday present!
  2. A subscription payment by DDR of 13 a month.
  3. You can buy them over the counter as you need them for 15 a month.

If you spend more than six hours a month in the cafe, in any capacity, this card works out the cheapest overall. In addition, you are eligible for a 10% discount off your purchases at GAME Retailers in the High Street. Please ask a member of staff for details on this (if you are in the cafe).

^ This card is only available to students whose establishments have an arrangement with Quarks. Please ask a member of staff for details on this (if you are in the cafe), or if you want your University of College to be added to this scheme.
