Get your TOTUM card

First up, sign up for a TOTUM card with your student email address. It’s quick and easy to register. Getting a card allows you to unlock discounts at many different retailers and services.

Unlock exclusive travel offers

As a student you can access all sorts of travel offers including discounted bus fares in Oxford, a range of bike services and discounts, save one-third on rail fares with a 16-25 Railcard (also available to mature students in full-time study) and lots more.

Pay less for your weekly food shop

The Co-op offers 10% off your shop when you use your TOTUM card at checkout. Take advantage of its budget recipes and inspiration webpages and make you money work even harder by signing up for more rewards as a member.

Key an eye out for student discounts and offers

Check the student discounts page on the Save the Student website and the Which? best student discounts guide before you buy anything. Unidays and Student Beans also have apps featuring offers, discounts and advice.

Take advantage of tech offers
