Discovering the heart and soul of Cluj-Napoca has never been more exciting, thanks to the innovative “Cluj Card”. The Cluj Card, innovatively conceived by Simon and Fay Williams, is your passport to exclusive discounts and offers across a wide range of over 40 partner venues. From tantalising eateries to bustling bars, this card is designed to enhance the urban exploration experience for both locals and visitors.
The Vision Behind the Card
The inception of the Cluj Card stems from the founders' love for travel, socialising, and their profound connection with Cluj-Napoca. Transitioning from visitors to residents, Simon and Fay leveraged their extensive backgrounds in business development, events, and recruitment to create a platform that not only benefits cardholders but also bolsters local businesses.
What You Get
For a one-time fee, which at the time of writing, is just 50 lei, the Cluj Card offers unparalleled value, potentially recouping its cost within the first few uses. It's a tool for everyone—whether you're a student, a working professional, or a tourist. The card's flexibility and lack of a subscription model make it an accessible choice for all, promoting local economy and offering the thrill of discovery with its ever-changing offers.
How It Works
- First, you need to purchase your Cluj Card from the website. The great news is, as a Cluj XYZ reader, you benefit from an addition 10% off your subscription when using the discount code “CLUJXYZ10” during the checkout.
- Select from a list of locations to pick up your Cluj Card and wait for the confirmation email to let you know that your personal Cluj Card is ready.
- Simply show your card to the participating venues and enjoy the discounts which can be found on the Cluj Card website or by scanning the QR code which is printed on your card.
You'll probably notice a couple of things during your checkout. Firstly, there are two versions of the Cluj Card. One standard card and one “Student Edition”. There's currently no difference between the benefits provided by each card, however, it does help the Cluj Card team to determine if there's a high demand among students and helping partners identify needs within the community.
The other thing, is that right now the price of 50 lei is a special offer until the validity period of 31st July, 2024. This special price, combined with the additional 10% you can receive by using the CLUJXYZ10 discount code will guarantee that you start making savings right away!
