May 13, 2011

Want to make the most of your student cash? Here are some of the very best offers and discounts for students on the net:

Wealthy Student is an excellent, easy-to-navigate site that specifically helps students make money and save money. Editor Steve Burford graduated with over £5,000 left, and has written a book as a companion to the site. has an amazing number of vouchers available for anyone, not just students!  You really should check this site out for a bargain, even if you check no other…

Student Free Stuff is a no-frills site, updated three times a week with thousands of great offers.

Student Beans is a well-presented site, which is easy on the eye and easy to navigate.

The Student Finance Blog is a well-resourced site with hundreds of articles on a variety of subjects ranging from accommodation to budgeting to making money and getting discounts.

Money Saving Student is my personal favourite and is written by a student, for students. The site is very regularly updated, and reads like a blog.

Moneywise is all about your money and your life, and although it is aimed at a wider audience, has thousands of excellent articles on spending wisely.

Money Saving Expert is probably the UK’s best money saving website, and regularly gets over 200,000 hits per day. It has loads of money-saving categories, and an excellent forum where readers can pose or answer questions and exchange money-saving ideas. The e-mail newsletter comes out weekly with all of the latest discount offers and links to vouchers.

Freecycle is a site dedicated to advertising unwanted goods for FREE! You can find all sorts of furniture and electrical goods on this site, as well as thousand of other products in excellent condition that need a new home. In the West Midlands and Warwickshire, there is a similar site called Community Freebay.

Couch Surfing is the ultimate site for getting a free night’s stay anywhere in the world. Millions of users with a free couch or spare bed post their details, and will happily give you somewhere to stay in exchange for your company and conversation. Users receive ratings and reviews in a similar way to Ebay, so you can be reassured of your personal safety before staying with a stranger.

Young Money is a website dedicated entirely to young people and their finances, and contains information for US as well as UK audiences. There are sections on student entrepreneurship, money management and financial aid for students. One excellent article for students by Elizabeth Hart can be found here.
