(*) Please note: your 10% discount on RSN Shop purchases, Online Talks and Tours will become available automatically only after your Friends membership order has been processed. For this reason we recommend you complete your Friends membership order individually and that you do not include other items in your shopping basket on the same order as those items will not receive a discount. Subsequent orders will automatically receive the Friends discount for qualifying items only if you are ‘signed in’ to the site at the time of purchase.
(**) Please note: the 10% discount for classes is not valid for Certificate and Diploma Courses, or for our self-paced video courses by David & Charles.
