Sadly I never went to University, so I only benefited from student discount for two short years of sixth-form. Now that has all changed thanks to online courses and now you can join me in becoming a student (at any age) and benefit from endless discounts…
So what on earth am I talking about? Well, to apply for a NUS Student Card you don’t actually have to attend a University. By simply purchasing an online course with Shaw Academy you are officially classed as a student and can apply for a Student Discount Card. So why pay £12 just to get a few discounts? Well, let me show you what discounts you can get and how much I’ve saved in a week.
So what extra’s can you get which aren’t listed above, well in the 4 days since getting my card I have got;
– £5 off London Zoo Tickets
– 10% OFF Paperchase
– 10% OFF New Look
– 10% OFF Superdrug
– 10% OFF The Co-operative Food
– 10% OFF Cath Kidston (This is my favourite!)
– 15% OFF Ted Baker (In-Store)
So you can see how this NUS card can really benefit your spending in everyday life and can up your weekly savings when the coupons and deals run dry! I am so glad I found out this savvy way to become a student again and can’t wait to see how much I save over the year with my NUS Card.
For anyone looking to just become a student and get a NUS Student Card, you can apply to numerous FREE courses at Shaw Academy here. They are completely free to join, there is only a small charge (about £5) at the end of the diploma to sit the final test and get your certificate. You don’t have to complete the course but you might as well get a qualification while you’re at it!
Here are some simple steps to make sure you get your card:
1. Sign-up to a Shaw Academy course as mentioned above.
3. When they ask for the institution put ‘Shaw Academy’.
4. Follow the instructions, upload a picture and pay the £12.
5. Your all done! The card came really quickly for me (5 days).
Let me know if you have used these tips or know of any great savings to be made with a student discount card! I know I certainly won’t be paying full price again.
