Many students wonder how it’s possible to study, save and be a student at the same time; so we’ve provided budgeting and discount websites that will help.

One of the most obvious benefits of being a student is access to student discounts. Usually, an NUS card or your university student card provides you discount to shops in-store. But when it comes to online shopping, two websites give you access to the best discounts; these are Unidays and Studentbeans.
Unidays gives students free and instant access to student discounts and signing up is easy with your university email and matriculation number. Unidays is available online, but they also have an app which takes you directly to your desired retailer, making shopping even easier! Unidays has a mixture of fashion, technology, stationery, food and much more, with brands including ASOS, Topshop, Missguided, Adidas and Apple.
Another website with free student discounts is StudentBeans. StudentBeans and Unidays are very similar, but both have exclusive codes with different brands – so it might be beneficial to sign up to both to make sure you get the most from your student discount. Student beans have discounts on travel, fashion, health – and sometimes even provide free Uber vouchers.
