Ratings and Reviews
I’m actually quite upset that I bought the TOTUM card without researching first. For one thing, the app seems to break down often and it seems to have no deals on it at all at the moment. I’m paying around £30 for this card and it constantly freezes or doesn’t easily display discounts. There also seems to be exactly the same deals on UNiDAYS for free. This makes this card pretty redundant and I can’t really figure out how to refund the card. However, there does seems to be some good deals (when the app actually works) but I would recommend getting a UNiDAYS card rather than a TOTUM card if you don’t want to waste your money.
Total con and a UI written by a ten year old
One of the biggest draws for me to the TOTUM card was the Pass ID you get when you pay the £15. However when going through the application process it wants a picture of either your drivers license or passport which you try to provide only before having the app persistently crash and registering as a “failed attempt” P.S you only get 4! Why? You might ask? Well after a quick search on their FAQ’s the answer is basically “just because...” SO basically now I’ve payed for something I won’t receive, FANTASTIC. Absolutely fuming.
Let’s hope I can justify bothering with it by hammering all the frankly mediocre discounts that you have to trawl through for hours to find something remotely worth while, the whole experience is about as much fun as gonorrhoea.
A lot wrong with this app
There is a lot wrong with the app, from the odd way discounts are organised to the very annoying “Wallet” feature. The cars shown in the wallet are very low res, until you click them. This needs to be integrated with iOS Wallet to that your cards are available on demand.
Probably the biggest disappoint is that I paid extra for the Gourmet Society add on, only to find out after that it’s a fraction of restaurants that GS offer. You can’t use the GS app to search for restaurants but instead have to log into NUS, and search. The worst thing is the search website isn’t even optimised for mobiles. Useless. At least add a restaurant search feature on this app, if you really have to continue ripping people off.
