Top places I use my NUS student discount.

Having an NUS card can be amazing, if you’re a student or just got one on the sly. You can use it in so many places. However I wanted to let you know some of my favourite places I use my NUS card and what I actually get when I use them. Having the card is all well and good but if you have no idea where you can use it, not so good! So sit back and enjoy the discounts. Oh, I’ve not been endorsed or sponsored by any of these companies, I just like bargains! Co-Op At the Co-Op you get 10% off your food shopping. Which is perfect for most students because it doesn’t matter what university you’re at, there’s normally a Co-Op lurking around the corner waiting for your hard earned student finance! It doesn’t matter if you’re a student or just a normal every day…

How to get Free student prescriptions and more!

Being a student can be difficult, I mean that’s just the stress involved with your work and actually turning up to university. If you have a long term condition that you are taking medication for then it can be even worse. I suffer from mental health, BPD to be exact and I have to take medication for it daily. It can be expensive but thankfully there are things in place to help us students out, like free prescriptions. So the NHS have this thing in place to do with a low income scheme. So imagine it like your student finance, the less money your parents and yourself earn; the more help that you will get. This is one of them instances where you’ll get help and most students will fall under this. If you’re not sure, apply anyway and find out; what have you got to lose? Okay, what is…

Earn easy Amazon Giftcards with JobSpotter

Whenever I used to hear people talk about JobSpotter I couldn’t give a dam, I didn’t care and I wanted them to stop talking. Months afterwards I kick myself for ever thinking that way and hate that I could have been throwing away hundreds of pounds in Amazon vouchers for a few minutes of my time here and there! I think it was mainly due to the fact that I had no idea what JobSpotter was and I never bothered to learn. I’m here to make sure that doesn’t happen with you as well in this easy to follow post I’m about to write! JobSpotter? Well to put it frankly, it’s an app. I used to think that it was only available to people on a certain network but that doesn’t seem to be the case. It’s totally free to download and you don’t need to worry about losing any…

Students, plan your future in year one!

Ask most students and they will tell you that the reason they are doing their course is because they want to work in that industry. You have the odd few that took their course because they didn’t know what they wanted to do, so they wanted to piss about for a few years though; I won’t be focusing on them! I want to talk about the students that have taken the direction in which they want to work and are focusing on university, with no end goal in sight. Although I want to talk about what happens after graduating and what you need to be prepared for, I also want to talk about a few options that might come up while you’re studying. The main one being placements, no matter how long. So take a read and find out why I’m so passionate about them, even if I hated the…

Cashing in on your used receipts with Shoppix!

If you find yourself collecting receipts and throwing them in the bin the first chance you get, you really need to read this post. If you haven’t done so already I would suggest checking out my Receipt Hog post, which is another app that can be used at the same time as the one I’m about to tell you all about! How to start…. 1, Download the Shoppix app on your app store. 2, Register to the app using this referral code 06JFUC08. 3, Grab your receipt, hit the camera button at the bottom and start snapping.
