        If this is on Ozbargain and its regular price is THIRTY BUCKS, where is the "bargain" or discount?

      Seems like it's $30 across the board for a bunch of them, according to statravel:

      http://book.statravel.com.au/staglobe/DiscountCardsRetrieve....

      • International Student Identity Card - ISIC | $30
      • International Youth Travel Card - IYTC | $30
      • International Teacher Identity Card - ITIC | $30

      This just seems like advertising and not really a bargain at all, unless someone can find evidence of it being more expensive and having a price drop recently.

        Hi, yes $30 is standard price, we're constantly adding new discounts so it really is a bargain!

          So this is just spam then..

        •  

          Hi, yes $30 is standard price,

          So, this has no place as a bargain! It's not a discount.

          How, perchance, does this qualify as worthy of Ozbargain? It's an ad, pure and simple.

    Does "teaching staff" apply to employees of edu institutions as well?

    •  

      Hello,

      You'll need to show evidence of being a full time teacher or professor when you apply. if you're not sure send over what you have to support@isic.com.au and we'll have a look for you.

      These cards are limited to teachers. We have student and youth cards too with similar discounts if you are eligible for either of those.

        So only FULL-TIME teachers?

        Mmm … so four-day per week teachers like me who have a union card through AEU/NSWTF plus the Ambassador Card and its app can't use this ITIC.

        Smells like a dodgy deal of some sort?

        Can you tell me Louis, when you contacted the New South Wales Teachers Federation (13-23 Mary Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010 … phone +61292172100), how did they respond?

        I'm tipping they were NOT interested. Did they offer you FREE promotion in the union journal or bulletin so you could make all 75000+ members aware of your offer?

        •  

          Hi Iain,

          Our eligibility requirements are:
          To prove your full time teaching status, you will need a letter on official school or university stationery. This must state that you are employed at a recognised school, college or university for at least 18 hours per week, for a minimum of 1 academic year.

          So I should imagine working four days a week you would fit into that bracket

          @louisab:

          Why buy your dodgy card? Teachers already have a better benefit.

          AGAIN … Can you tell me Louis, when you contacted the New South Wales Teachers Federation (13-23 Mary Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010 … phone +61292172100), how did they respond?

    Not a deal. Move it to….???? Some where.

    Teachers used to get free entry to Sydney aquarium, Wildlife park etc.
    Not any more unfortunately.

    • +1 vote

      Pull out your Ambassador Card.
      There are discounts (or specified free 'research' entry) to many places.
      Australian Reptile Park and many NSW museums are kind to teachers.

        I will try the Ambassador Card, but my teacher ID didn't work at Sydney aquarium last time…
        I think they changed their policy, no longer kind to teachers.

        • +1 vote

          Congngo,

          Read the promotions in the journal. Often I do the aquarium and IMAX together on one day for a great deal … FREE for me and about 10-15% off for each grandkid.

          Or put yourself on the subscribers' list for discount emails.

        •  

          @IainLMTA: Good idea! I will add myself to the subscribers' list. Thank you.

    Teachers who are members of their union already have their union card and their Ambassador Card.

    Teachers with the AEU (and its state and territory branches) are already members of IE, Education International, the international affiliate.

    Even "independent" teachers who work outside public education but are in the ITU are covered.

    This $30 spend on an ITIC is a clear waste of $30.

    Don't fall for it, Aussie Teachers. It appears to be someone's pocket-lining exercise. (BEFORE YOU SPEND $30, SPEAK TO YOUR UNION MEMBERSHIP SECTION and do read what local and international benefits you already have through your union card, your Ambassador card or both.)

  •  

    Are TAFE lecturers eligible for this?

    The ITIC gets you access to specially negotiated offers for teachers, there is a team of people globally who do this. This is the point of difference for this card over other cards. While we know that many teacher cards gain their owners great deals, this is different and can be used both in Australia and overseas.

    We have submitted a request to have this removed and will post in forums after being advised by a kind member that that would be best.

    Thank you

    •  

      In other words, your penny dropped when enough people explained the meaning of 'bargain' and 'discount'.

      I see you tried a similar 'stunt' 23 months ago.

      •  

        We have just received a message from OzBargain that this deal will not be removed, nor should be posted in forums.

        They advised it was a fine deal for this section of the website. Just passing on the message we received.

    Ah, the good old student ID card.

    Back in the day, every Aussie backpacker heading for Europe had an obligatory stop on the Khao San Road, to get a fake student ID card.

    Is that still a thing?

    Come on children. Move on. Move on. No bargain here.

  •  

    Pay $30 for the card, get $12.50 Palace Cinemas tickets and $14.50 Hoyts tix or $15.50 Event cinemas tix. Not terrible value if you're a frequent movie goer and don't like being tied to your mobile network's discount tix. I'm with Telstra for example and can only get Village Cinemas tix cheap in VIC - this card would allow me to get $14.50 hoyts tix as well.

    •  

      Buy a $2 Optus sim (unless you get one for free - many ways to do this) and get Hoyts tickets for $11.50

      Or use your Ambassador Card (free with union membership) and, in New South Wales, get:

      READING Cinemas
      Daytime movies (commencing before 6pm) for $7 MON-FRI and $7.50 SAT-SUN
      Evening movies $8.50 MON-FRI and $9 SAT-SUN

      HOYTS Cinemas
      All movies, all sessions $9.90

      EVENT Cinemas
      Daytime movies (commencing before 5:45pm) for $7 MON-FRI and $9 SAT-SUN
      Evening movies $9 MON-FRI and $11 SAT-SUN

    I fail to see how this is a deal, more like an ad.
    even if this is a deal, this will be targeted, not everyone can get this.

  •  

    Use your Ambassador Card (free with union membership) and shop at Liquor Stax liquor stores for:

    7.5% off non-discounted shelf/fridge liquor, soft drink and snack foods
    as well as
    2.5% EXTRA off weekly specials and bulk wine (6 bottles or more)
