    Thanks mate! It's a wonder anybody actually pays for these memberships ;Þ

  • +5

    I've already used the 1 year deal (6/2013), now using the 3 year deal (3/2014), so will get this as a guest pass in another name as my current membership has almost 2 years before expiry.

    Good office (cubicle) use around the world, free coffee etc, free fast WiFi, friendly staff.
    I download large files (cough) at Regus.

    Handy when travelling to have a choice of CBD office spaces.

    • Quick question about the facilities from a first timer…

      When they mention "Print / scan / photocopy facilities available"

      Does that = free printing?

      Also I'm assuming that there aren't any 'communal' computers for use in the common areas?

      • What do you think from a place that rents it's facilities at high rates…. I pop down the street to OfficeWorks.

        Communal computer (1) at offices I visited. No USB or other way to access the computer, so make sure you set up cloud access.

        • No worries, thanks for the clarification!

        • @Chimpus:
          When you first visit, usually they show you around. Just ask.

          Most people using the facilities would have an account to bill for those items.

          When logging in first time it asks for your membership number. It tells you it will be billed to your account. But it isn't as we have free WiFi.

        • @brucefromaustralia:

          Hey Brucey! Have you tried entering those offices on weekends?

          Also how do you make a guest pass? What if you want to bring a different guest each time?

        • @MasterNoob:
          Reception hours only. Offices are in office buildings, so mainly open usual office hours. Only some paying long-term clients have secure access out of office hours.

          Join up with another name like I did (I already had a current 3 year membership) - I just used an initial rather than first name, which leaves latitude for male/female guest. Also can use it in places wherever I don't want to be called "Brucey" ;-)

        • @brucefromaustralia:

          But Brucey ;) have they asked your guest to ever show ID as proof the card belongs to them?

        • +1

          @MasterNoob:
          No one will come with me :-(

          I've only just applied for guest membership. Will probably use with overseas friends. Great view, with free coffee, & on free WiFi go down well.

          Never been asked for ID at any office.

  • +4

    This will come handy one day

    • +52

      No, no it won't.

      • +14

        Sure you'll use it - somewhere to sit and do all those Udemy courses…or read all those dubious quality free ebooks….

      • +1

        But I'll get it anyway

  • +9

    Tried a few times on phone to activate but get message "We are unable to process your activation at this time - please contact us on the number below".

    Then realised there is a validate button below code entry… worked ;-)

    Why am I always the first to make the foolish mistakes?

    • +1

      No, you're just the first to talk share it!

      • When I stuff up, others usually aren't too far behind. Finding the solution first - now that's better. I've made a bit of money specialising in that position in life, so I'm not complaining.

        • Hmm can't seem to find a validate button

          edit: using safari worked

        • Finding the solution first - now that's better. I've made a bit of money specialising in that position in life, so I'm not complaining.

          thanks - deal updated :)

    • Thanks for the help! I figured it was expired

      • +1

        Your not the only one ;-)
        I thought the same, hence my comment to warn others.
        Enjoy the office!

  • anyone tried using their membership yet?

    • This current one - that's rushing things a bit, teehee.

      Been using 2 free memberships for over a year, as commented above.

  • +16

    We could use it to hold a ozbargin get together

    • +35

      Ozbargain Christmas party at Regus!

      • Serious, lets do it!!

        • +6

          Well the description says it has professional surroundings so it's perfect.

        • +1

          @luke73:
          What, the OzBargain Chrissie Party at HN is cancelled? But they love professionals like us & there's a free Santa to have our photos with ;-)

        • @brucefromaustralia:

          This is exclusive. Only those with a card shall enter.

        • +1

          @anthonettex:
          Ah, exclusive…
          (8091, no 8157 clicks) plus members from those other deals ;-)

          I don't think Regus in Oz has space for that many. We'll have to take turns. At least HN have the carparks.

        • +2

          @luke73:
          we can all turn up with our professional battery chargers

  • +2

    Love the Regus business centres. They recently opened one up in the QV building in Melbourne. Very convenient, unlimited Nespresso, work pods and free wi-fi.

    Anyone know how to tell when the Regus membership is going to expire? I swear they used to have it in the account settings but can't find them.

    • +3

      I asked at my local Office. They told me both my gold cards expire in 2072!
      Was told I can use the facilities til then. They don't even ask to see the card.

      When I questioned when the promotional membership expired, they said to contact head office as it does not show on their computer.

      My expired card from about 2 years back is still accepted.

      • Sweet! Did you get yours via the Virgin Atlantic Silver Upgrade?

      • I have a 3-year membership card (2014) and have been coming to the office in HCMC Vietnam since I arrived here. Unfortunately, just been told that my card has already expired since March 2015. A 3-year card expired in just one year? I emailed their help desk and was told that the card is a partnership card, with 259-Work from Anywhere (not Diners' though) is only valid for one year from the activation date. I don't understand. Anyone with a similar experience?

        • Oh, and last year, I also signed up for a friend of mine. She got until 2078 (?)

  • Same here=>We are unable to process your activation at this time - please contact us on the number below

    • Read the above post. There is a validation button you press BEFORE you put in your personal details

      • Yep, I saw that right after I submitted my post :P. Anyway, just got mine.

    • Did you click Validate by where you entered the code first?

  • +3

    Thanks OP

    Congratulations! Your Regus businessworld gold card has now been activated.

    Your full membership package will be sent to you within 21 working days. If you wish to start enjoying the benefits straight away, you can use your temporary membership card which will be emailed to you.

  • Do you need to register with Regus first? Or is this for existing customers only?

  • where do we enter in that code?

  • Cheers! Should come in handy.

  • Wow this is awesome, I never knew this existed, and there is one 5 min from my house!

    I work from home, but this would be great if I needed a change of scenery, or if my stupid Optus cable went down like yesterday.

    So do I just book and then rock up with my laptop and get to work?

    • +1

      u dont need to book.

      unless u want a meeting room. which you have to pay for.

      but the common area with wifi and coffee is free for walk-in visits

      • hey could i kindly ask, so all the regusworld locations would be free for a walk in with the gold card?

      • you dont need a driver license or passport with you? so i can put any name i want, or just an initial?

        • usually they dont ask but they could if they wanted

  • Thanks op

  • Potentially free lunch?

    • +2

      Only the coffee (latte/cappuccino etc.) is free however I've found that after a meeting they leave extra sandwiches/snacks in the kitchen area which I assume is free for anyone to take.

      • I've eaten too much good left over cake with my free coffees.
        Borrowed a good Regus umbrella a week or so back.

      • +1

        Saw a place in Sydney that has a sandwich bar, yeah!

        • which one?

        • @melfes: Would like to know too!

        • +2

          @melfes: the one in the Citibank building next to town hall station

  • This should come in handy

  • +2

    how does it work? so I just bring the card to any of the offices they have and then just find a seat?

  • Still trying to work out what the "Acitivation" code is. I assume it was the 3 digit code on the back of my Diners Card.

    • It's the deal code up the top of this page!
      diners08bus

      You're a member!!

    • -1

      no it's the promotional code provided by OP

  • Cheers OP! I'll take you to free lunch to nearest branch to my home for this.

  • I've been to a few Regus centres around Oz for meetings and conferences - this is an excellent deal to be able to use the common areas. THANK YOU so much OP. Great for travel, networking and in summer - the air con.

  • +1

    Can I get the deal even if I'm not a Diner's club member?

    • +3

      Of course not ;-)
      But on OzBargain we're all members, aren't we.
      So yes.

    • +2

      Yes

  • +1

    Do they make good study spots for students?

    • +5

      Is there a dress code? Like will I be judged if I'm working on my thesis in jeans and vans?

      • +7

        I've used it a handful of times: everytime I've been in, everyone is formally dressed in business attire.

        • +1

          so basically it doesn't look good going there with thongs/shorts/tee?

        • +3

          Well except me. I'm regularly in shorts, t-shirt, sandals, wiping off the sand from the beach ;-)

          Depends on the office - no one seems to pay much attention - they're too busy.

        • @brucefromaustralia:

          so there is no dress code for entering the lounge?
          Perhaps next time when you see someone in the lougne with shorts+tee+thongs, it might be me :P

        • +17

          @chonghe:
          Honest, I don't know you ;-)

          1 t-shirt clad OzBargainer is acceptable, they may worry if more arrive clad in cut-off Bintang t-shirts, eneloops bulging from pockets, mumbling about dupes, jv, and the best deal they almost got.

          They may soon introduce a dress code :-(

        • +2

          @chonghe:

          And suddenly, an epidemic of people with laptops, thongs and singlets talking about Udemy courses and their most recent dumpster dive successes

      • I've used one in Kuala Lumpur with thongs, shorts, a sweaty tshirt and backpack ;)

        • +1

          Yea that's Kuala Lumpur though

        • it's ok, its always freaking hot outside anyways.

      • +2

        please don't ruin it.

        Bintang singlets might be funny now, but please make an effort.

  • Can't believe this could be free! Thanks OP!

  • +2

    Thanks OP, looking forward to a free shower

    • +3

      I've never seen a shower, but probably depends on the office. Probably listed on the website. Good for cyclists.

      • toilets? Could be handy for tourist travel ;)

        • I find the free WiFi, coffee, English language papers, helpful staff, in a central location close to transport, and a good place to rest or do some 'work' trumps toilets when travelling.

          That's what MacDonalds are for, at least in France.
          No toilet for you.

    • After some thought…
      Most upmarket office blocks like these supply showers for cyclists & possibly joggers. Just ask.

  • nice share thanks OP. never knew this existed

  • +2

    highly recommended to everyone who hasn't got it. Get it even if you don't think you need it.

    • +15

      Isn't that the first rule of OzBargain?

      • +1

        The first rule of OzBargain is never talk about OzBargain :P

  • +1

    Too good to be true? Who funds this?

    • +22

      The people that paid $700 for gold membership!

      • +3

        Seriously though, I'd like to know how this business model works. I've looked into it, and normally, the cost of renting a single office slot in one of these shared office areas, especially in the city is enormous. Granted, that's for a dedicated desk and space, but this is not too far off from that. The facilities also look brand spanking new. How could they possibly sustain giving out these multi-year free memberships …

        • +1

          I'm guessing they use it to entice you to move up to that actual "shared office space." This really only works well for individual work, for meetings etc. you'd need to rent a space off them.

        • +2

          These free offers are provided to business & frequent flier groups. (We have piggybacked on one of those.) Those are the likely users of this type of rental office space. Corporations are major clients, with whole office groups / teams located for long periods.

          The office I use was renovated at Christmas, opening up a great window wall with a fabulous view. And that's where the pods for people like us are.
