Best student discount websites
September means fall, fresher’s, and, unfortunately, expenses!
Whether it’s getting your new room or flat to feel homey, the necessary clothes for cold walks to lecturers, or even expensive meals out with your new course mates, there always seems to be something to pay for when you’re a student.
But… it’s not all bad. In the UK, students are benefited by getting a range of exclusive discounts in high street shops and restaurants alike.
Here are the best services that will help you make the most out of your money, plus the hottest discounts at the moment.
If you haven’t signed up to UNiDAYS yet, do it now! All you need is your university login and you’re all set up. They’ve got you covered from everything from clothes, to technology, to fitness.
Right now you can enjoy 50% off a PURE Gym subscription, a new Samsung S6 Lite phone for £13 per month, or free airpods and 10% off an Apple MacBook.
Having reliable technology is essential for pretty much any university degree, whether it’s English or Computer Science. Check out the Apple, Dell, and HP discounts, among others!
If you’re looking for the latest fashion, you can get up to 50% off big brands like Calvin Klein and Coach.
Or maybe you’re thinking of hosting a pizza night with your new flatmates. Check out the 35% discount from Domino’s or get £15 off UberEats!
The possibilities are endless, and eating out is a great way to get to know your new city, so why save some money if you can?
TIP: Make sure to check out the ‘Limited Time Only’ discounts and grab yours before it goes!
Thought that was all? No way. Student Beans also holds an amazing arsenal of discounts. Much like UNiDAYS, they cover fashion, beauty, food and drink, and even travel and finance!
You can get exclusive discounts on hotels if you decide to take a trip with your mates, discounts for services such as Amazon Prime, and even free treats from Greggs!
Again, all you need are valid university login details to prove that you’re a student and voila, you’re all set up for a year of discounts. Just remember to renew your account for every academic year and you can keep on saving.
TIP: Student Beans constantly update a list of their top 20 discounts, so check that out every now and again to see what’s new.
While these online services are truly lifesavers for student’s spending habits, getting a TOTUM card might also be worth your while.
TOTUM is a great option as not only does it give you over 350 discounts, but it also doubles up as an ID card that you can use to verify your age at pubs, bars, and clubs.
In addition, you’ll get 10% off all shopping at Co-Op for only £14.99 a year, or a special £24.99 for three years - great if you’re just starting your degree!
TIP: On their website, TOTUM has a number of giveaways you can enter to get something for free! Can’t hurt, right?
Being a student can be hard. It’s the first time you really leave home and stand on your own two feet - but a little help can go a long way!
Remember that you don’t need to change your spending habits to fit in with those around you - it’s important to be on top of your finances! But, at the same time, it’s also nice to treat yourself and have fun while you’re at university, it’s part of the experience!
