What is Nike Membership?

Nike sportswear

Nike Membership is Nike’s reward scheme, formerly known as Nike Plus or Nike+. The scheme allows shoppers to enjoy a wide range of benefits, accessed through the four key Nike apps. Each app is available to download on iOS and Android devices.

What is the Nike App?

The Nike App is the brand’s main app, which acts as their mobile storefront and allows you to quickly and easily purchase Nike products just as you would on a computer. With this app, you’ll be able to discover the latest sales, promotions, and new releases, some of which are exclusive to Nike Members.

What is Nike Training Club?

If you’re looking to break a sweat, the Nike Training Club app will be right up your street. It includes over 160 guided workouts, from yoga and pilates to high intensity training, dance, and more. There are also challenges you can join, in addition to flexible training plans tailored to you and your fitness levels. You’ll earn badges and trophies as you reach workout milestones, so you can always monitor your progress. As you achieve new milestones, you’ll have the chance to be rewarded with special Nike Member exclusives.

What is Nike Run Club?

The Nike Run Club app is the go-to app for finding the motivation for better and more regular running sessions. Otherwise known as NRC, the app features guided runs, performance tracking, challenges, personalised coaching, and more. Nike Members can enjoy integration with the popular Headspace app too.

What is SNKRS?

The SNKRS app is home to new releases, such as limited edition sneaker models or replays of retro styles. You won't find any price cuts on these exclusive releases, and voucher codes are usually not applicable. However, if you’re looking for something special or want to keep up to date with the latest sneaker drops, this is the app for you.

What is Nike Plus (Nike+)?

Nike Plus, also called Nike+, is the previous name of the Nike Membership loyalty program. The associated apps were also previously called the Nike+ Run Club and the Nike+ Training Club. The only difference in those apps is that the + has been dropped from their names.

How to become a Nike Member

It’s quick and easy to become a Nike Member. Anyone already registered on the Nike website or the Nike app, SNKRS app, Nike Running Club app, or Nike Training Club app will automatically be a member.

If you haven’t yet signed up with any of these apps or websites, follow the simple three-step process below:

  1. Visit the Nike Membership page
  2. Click “Join Us”
  3. Complete the online registration form to create your profile

How much does Nike Membership cost?

Nike Membership is entirely free. There are no costs involved in becoming a member, so there’s no reason not to sign up, particularly given the excellent discounts and benefits you can enjoy.

What discounts and benefits come with Nike Membership?

There are several discounts and benefits exclusively available to Nike Members. You can begin enjoying the offers as soon as you register for membership.

Member-only sales

Nike offers exclusive member-only discounts, alongside early access to the latest sales. By downloading the app and signing up for push notifications, you’ll be alerted whenever new sales launch and early access is available. 

Birthday discounts

During your birthday month, Nike offers a generous 25% off full-price purchases. You’ll receive a unique discount code by email, which you can use multiple times to save on all purchases you make throughout the month.

Anniversary discounts

Anniversary discounts work in a similar way to birthday discounts, but refer to the anniversary of the day you became a Nike Member. Anniversary discount offers vary and are delivered to members by email. You’ll usually receive 10% to 20% off your order.

Member exclusive products

Nike Members have access to exclusive products, which aren’t available to the general public. These offers are only accessible through the Nike app, or when members log in on a PC. You’ll usually discover any exclusive lines via the app homepage or by email. 

Free standard delivery

One of the best Nike Membership perks is the unlimited free standard delivery, which automatically applies to all orders you place as a member. Nike delivery usually costs £4.50 (unless spending over £50), so regular shoppers will notice big savings.

Free returns

Nike Members also have access to free returns without needing a receipt. Nike currently has a 60-day return window, throughout which you are free to test out your new trainers or clothing before making any decisions. Post-pandemic, the free return window will likely drop to its usual limit of 30 days. Some exceptions apply, as detailed in the returns policy

  • Use student discounts. If you’re enrolled on a university course, take advantage of Nike’s generous student discount offer. The discount can often be coupled with sale items too for even lower prices.
  • Sign up to the newsletter. Make sure you don’t miss out on any new savings by signing up to the newsletter. If you’ve downloaded the app, enable push notifications too.
