As the cost of everything increases, spending less (or getting more for your money) can be a challenge. Fortunately, there are tons of tricks to help you get some money back: Here are 7 best ways to get you started.
Ask for a Student Discount Even if you are Not in UNI:
You do not have to pay 30 large tuition fees to qualify for a student discount: Some free or largely discounted online courses are also eligible for NUS members. An NUS extra card will cost you £ 12 per year, and there are tons of student discounts, plus free or discounted Amazon Prime membership. If you have already paid Prime, you can ask for a refund when you switch to a student contract, and then double the rewards below!
Use Amazon Prime to Create Rewards:
Sure, the Amazon Prime membership comes with an unlimited one day delivery, but offers for non-urgent postage (such as a credit 1 loan for your next purchase) can be well stacked. If you use it, buy your prime-qualified items one at a time to get credit for each. Use the reward of your next worthy item or, if you purchase Kindle video, music or apps, save credits for larger savings.
Have the Right Discount Cards:
Paying for lock-discounts is only worth it if you get your money back, so make a payment first! As an alternative, you can also discount some discount cards for free or for less:
– Taste card: Delay card 80 annual payment with free card to get you started. Alternatively, keep an eye on trial offers – some may get a membership for a few months.
– Train and coach cards can be redeemed for the purchase price on one or two trips. Get a student discount at a low price or for free with some student bank accounts.
Be the Code Hunter:
It’s never too late to snatch the cheek discount code! When shopping online, always look for a voucher before paying: it is usually enough to put the retailer’s name and “promo code” on a search engine. Want to organize more? Wait until you have the purchases in mind before signing up for retailers’ newsletters – first time subscribers will be paid with loads so they can pay on time.
Get the Most of your Birthday:
Birthdays are brilliant at making money and can capture everything from compliment cakes to cut price starters. What makes these offers particularly lucrative is that loads will look good throughout your birthday. You need to sign up at the retailer’s newsletter, download their app or get their loyalty card in advance, and then plan the offers you want so you can get everything on time. Do not miss:

Always Keep an Eye on the Small Print:
It’s hard to replace some everyday expenses – but it pays to read small print. You know that if you are the only adult in your household, or if no one else living there is considered an adult, you may receive 25% of your church tax. So who doesn’t count? Children, frankly – but student nurses, full-time university students and some trainees.
Likewise, free or discounted TV licenses cover the entire home. If you live with someone who is registered as blind or over the age of 75, it is worth licensing their name, so you will all benefit from a cheaper contract.
The easiest way to get a discount is simple: Ask for one! Retailers will not always take the bait, but it is worth trying your luck:
– Compare prices in advance. If you like what you want, then ask the store to win the deal or just throw in the extra. Also works for broadband providers.
– Do you buy more than one item, or boot parts? Discount means you can buy everything on that day instead of cheap stuff
– If they do not turn to a discount, the withdrawal will be enough to trigger a better deal. Similarly, you need to get a call back from the customer retention group to the changing phone, broadband and utility providers – those with the power to lower prices!
– Some retailers set aside their hefty discount for cash, plastic or finance, so do not show your hand until you get the best offer. Once the discount is locked, you can choose the best payment method.
Even one of the above ideas may get you a chin discount – but to really feel the benefit, start at the top and work on all of them. Stop paying more than you need this year!
