Student discount platform TOTUM has announced a Win your rent! Giveaway to help students deal with some of the challenges of the cost-of-living crisis, as they prepare to return or join University this autumn.
The TOTUM Win your rent! giveaway, will see four lucky students, one in each UK nation, receiving one off payments of £1,300 to support their cost-of-living this coming semester.
With NUS (National Union of Students) reporting that 96% of students are cutting back on both essentials and socialising, at a time when they are also struggling to adjust to new surroundings, experiences, and relationships, it’s good to know they still have options to help them navigate Uni life.
Elizabeth Bone, Managing Director at TOTUM said, “The UK cost-of-living crisis is hitting everyone, and we know that every penny really counts for students right now. So, we’re really pleased that our Win your rent! Giveaway will see 4 students, one in each UK nation, receiving £1,300 towards their living costs.
“Whether you’re an undergraduate, postgraduate, UK or international student studying and living in the UK, you can enter, and if you win, you can put the funds towards your rent, mortgage, travel, food, or energy bills. And to make this giveaway as accessible as possible we have multiple ways for students to enter.
“It’s our mission to help students to still be able to enjoy themselves, while putting a little bit of money back in their pockets. We have multiple offers and other giveaways available to help them further and multiple ways to enjoy the benefits of TOTUM.”
Recent surveys by NUS have confirmed that 1 in 3 students has less than £50 to live on each month after paying for rent and bills, which is why TOTUM is constantly looking for ways to help students live their Uni life for less.
TOTUM recently announced a partnership with tastecard that will see students being able to access not just the hundreds of discounts available to TOTUM members – think savings with huge brands like Apple, Samsung, Asos and Amazon as well as an exclusive 10% off at Co-op – but also access to 2 for 1 dining at restaurants, including Pizza Hut, Prezzo, Zizzi, Ask, Banyan and thousands more of their favourite local spots due to this partnership!
And it doesn’t end there. Student TOTUM members can also get stuck into 50% off pizza delivery at Pizza Hut Delivery, Papa John’s, and Domino’s London & Yorkshire, as well as up to 40% off cinema tickets, up to 50% off days out and a 60-day free trial of Coffee Club, which gives them 25% off barista-made drinks at thousands of coffee shops, including Caffè Nero with TOTUM and tastecard. Whether eating in or out they can save and keep on saving with TOTUM and tastecard.
The new partnership comes during a time of rising costs of living, where discounts could make all the difference to UK students.
