University: The Student Advantage Card

One of my most treasured possessions is my student card. I never pick up anything without checking if it’s eligible for student discount, as a loyal New Look fan it gets pretty regular use.

From paintballing to zoos, clothes to meals out, even driving lessons, this card will save you money at over 3500 locations across the UK. I’d suggest checking on the website as to what deals are available in your area as they are a bit more limited that the usual NUS…but it’s still well worth picking up! I’m pretty sure it might also get you access to Bella Italia’s secret menu too…though don’t quote me on that!

It calculated I could save £25.20 in a year…which I was a little disappointed about, but equally the discounts available in the area I’m currently living in are very limited (as there’s no university nearby I can understand why!). I know that my NUS paid for itself immediately when I hit Joules one year (whoops, though it was technically a birthday present!).

You can get a one-year discount card free at the moment, with just delivery charges to pay. Check out if you are eligible here, and get ordering and saving!

This is a sponsored post, but as always all opinions are my own. 

Do/did you take full advantage of student discounts? I know I do, probably too much…it’s so tempting knowing New Look have 20% off at the moment!

  • How did I not know about this? Thanks for the tip about the free one year!

      No worries, it was a card I hadn’t come across much before either! x

  • This is such a great card! I’m only in high school, so I don’t get any discounts but when I go to college, I’ll have to check this out!

      Definitely get a discount card as soon as you card, they save so much money! x

  • I miss my student card :'( I see you’re a Kent uni student, I went to CCCU for a little while (don’t hate haha!) Canterbury is lovely isn’t it? x
