Whether it’s coupons, freebies or discounts, there are many different apps you can use to save money whilst at university. Here are five of the top apps you should download in preparation for your studies.
Whether it’s discounts on fashion, beauty, lifestyle, food or drink. Unidays has a great variety of stores where their discount is valid. All you have to do is verify your student status and you will be confirmed for a year before having to renew.
Get cashback on your purchases using Quidco. It may take a while for the cashback to track and it might be months before you receive the amount, but it will all be worth it once it reaches your account and builds up to quite a saving.
If it’s discount vouchers you are looking for then Vouchercloud is the place to search. Vouchercloud provides discounts for pretty much anything. There is a featured deals section which lists the best deals of the day. You can also search locally using the “near me” option to find the best deals located around you.
HotUKDeals has not just the latest deals available at different stores but also vouchers and freebies. There is a designated area for each option and you can search specifically for the type of discount you are looking for. Discounts are rated via a hot and cold system with the hottest being the most recommended discount.
This app is very useful in search for the best deals at the popular supermarkets. Each time you create a shopping list on the app it will search and compare supermarkets to find you the best possible price for a particular item. If you are walking around the supermarket and curious to find out whether a product is cheaper in another store then you can. MySupermarket gives you the option to scan bar codes to see if a product is cheaper elsewhere.

I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
