    they'll be in tomorrow's Echo apparently and you can activate them via a website:

    http://icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk/c...name_page.html

    and here's the website:

    This is a really great idea that will help raise the profile of 08 and help get more people involved.

    If you don't get one tomorrow in the Echo, you can order one via the 08 website geoffrey quotes above - expect 28 days for delivery.

    They'll also be available in libraries, one-stop shops etc but don't know when from

    What crap offers, you don't need those S2 and 3 buses. It will take longer on those buses because of traffic congestion In the city centre.

    Like when I met Pete and the homies, they jumped the bus to Wellington dock while I had my bike to and I got there faster.

    My mum just brought back an Echo with a card In.

    I've ordered mine,my one never turned up with the Echo,nothing to do with the special prizes that are on offer in which you have to activate your card by the 26th of this month is it?

    I've got mine but they are useless at PR

    On leaflet you get with it the shtick is

    Are you fed-up with finding out about events too late to grab that elusive ticket or attend?

    Once you become an 08 Card holder that will become a thing of the past


    Is the 08 Ambassadors thing so soon forgotten?

    Seems little more than a PR stunt to me to sell a few more copies of the Echo.

    Wonder when the 1st one will go on e-bay?

    But when you live in town and need to drag a 20 kilo large box across town, believe me the S2/3 come in handy.

    Must agree time wise though. Walked down Queen Sq and bus was in, got to Tithebarn St and it had only just caught up with me.

    Got mine with the Liverpool Echo.
    Found a good use for the envelope as well >>>>>
    Laminated it and stuck it in the back window of the Van.

    Well it does say "08".

    Two-for-one ticket offer for hottest shows is on the cards

    TICKETS for two of the hottest shows in town have gone on sale exclusively to 08 Card holders.

    Cardholders can be the first to buy two for the price of one tickets for the opening nights of Blood Brothers and Doctor Dolittle.

    Tickets, which range from 10 to 35, are on sale exclusively to 08 Card holders until July 16, when they go on sale to the general public.

    two for one offer available on first night only I think?

    Well I got tickets for the front block for Dr Doolittle for 16 each,normally I'm priced out of going to these shows because I'm not willing to pay about 100+ for an evening out at the theatre.I'll pay 65 for a family of 4 so I'm already finding my card useful.

    Default Used my card

    Used me card in a cash machine as I was doing a performance art piece called "Turning my Bank Account upside down" and thought the Culture Company could spare some money to pay for it, as it had a legacy effect (I wouldn't spend the money until 2009) and it also had the WOW factor but unfortunately it didnt pay out. So it looks like another engaging the community event bites the dust

    I haven't had any emails from them telling me of any events, I did register for email alerts when I registered the card, perhaps there just haven't been any events at all.

    Apparently they are also good for "chopping" coke whatever that means

    I got mine yesterday aswell. I think the e-mails will gradually increase as the card becomes more popular and the offers become better. The best thing to do is go on the website to view any updates. It's still in its infancy, but the closer 2008 gets the more offers we will get. Be patient!

    Same here, mine turned up yesterday and has already expired.

    Also heard a rumour that they might be available to use on more bus routes but only within the city centre. No idea if that will ever work but the two routes currently would only help me to get from Lime St to Tithebarn if i had luggage.

    Don't panic good people. Looking at the 08card website it says this about the said problem - My 08 Card has an expiry date of 06/07, is it out of date?
