How to become a student & get endless discounts for £21.99!

Sadly I never went to University, so only benefited from student discount for 2 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 a online course with E-careers you are registered as a student and can apply for a Student Discount Card. So why pay £21.99 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.
