Unlock discounts with the V-Plate app

If you haven’t downloaded the new V-Plate app, what are you waiting for?! It’s a super convenient new way to grab your on-campus discounts and vouchers when shopping at UCSA outlets. You can also use it to enter the competition Swipe and Win.

To download V-Plate, visit Google Play or Apple’s App Store and search for ‘vplate’. You can also visit the V-Plate website here.

If you already have a V-Plate card but want to use the new digital version, you can. Just use the email address you registered with and your card number with an extra ‘0’ at the end. For example, card number ‘12345’ will have pin number ‘123450’. For security reasons, it’s recommended that you change your pin number when you first log in.

Tip: When you register for a V-Plate, you need to use your UC email address rather than your personal one.
