Being a student isn’t all fun and games, especially when it’s time to check your bank balance. Luckily for us, more and more companies are realising this, and offering students discounts on their products. I’ve rounded up the top 5 ways to make the most of your money whilst being at University:
Online shopping is becoming more and more appealing for lazy students like myself. UNIDAYS offers online discount codes for multiple big name fashion stores such as ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Office. It’s free and simple to sign up – you just need your university email address to prove you’re a student. They usually offer 10% off but from time to time there will be 20% or 30% off so keep an eye out!
Student Beans has all kinds of student and general offers in one place, ranging from discounted Alton Towers tickets to a free Kinder Bueno. You can even search for offers specifically for your area. The website will also show you any sales that are currently running.
No matter how skint students are, we always manage to have a very expensive smart phone in our hands. Vodafone is helping us out by offering 10% off selected pay monthly phones, iPads, tablets and SIM only price plans. On top of that, you can get up to £200 for your old phone with Vodafone Buyback.
Foursquare isn’t exclusively for students but it’s a good way to save money on eating out. Download the foursquare app to your smart phone and see what deals are in your area. For example, restaurants could give you 25% off your bill if you ‘check in’ using the app.
The Student Store
Computer software such as Microsoft Office is essential for all students. Phoneix Software Student Store supplies a wide range of programmes at discounted prices. This is particularly great for students studying graphics, film or game developing as all the Adobe software is available, including the Adobe Creative Cloud for only £15.88 a month.
