Whether it’s your weekly shop, a takeaway meal, a textbook or new clothes, there are plenty of ways to save money on the essentials of student life (and the not-so-essentials).
A huge variety of discounts and deals are on offer, although to take advantage of some of them you will need to be signed up to a student discount scheme.
Totum says it has more than 350 offers and discounts available across its platform. It has a free digital version but the membership that comes with a card, which you will often need for a deal, costs £14.99 for a year or – at the time of writing – £24.99 for three years.
UNiDAYS and Student Beans are free to join.

Keep a close eye on websites such as MoneySavingExpert.com because they feature regularly updated lists of the top student deals.
