How to Get Student Discounts & Freebies | ad

I chose to write this sponsored post for UNiDAYS^, since I initially joined UNiDAYS myself in my first year of university. Back then I was a blood hound for anything that mentioned the words “free” and/or “student discount”. If you too are a student and enjoy a good bargain, I’d like to introduce you to UNiDAYS. UNiDAYS is a free student discount company, used for online and instore student discounts. Keep reading for my tips on how I scored student discounts and freebies, when I was lacking in the funds.



1. O-week

Also known as, orientation week, or freebie week. This is the week of free BBQs, free pens, and free random stuff(mostly junk, to be honest). I’d recommend going in on the first day of O-week (even if it’s not your degree’s ‘day’). Swoop, swoop, swoop!



2. Keep an eye out at your university throughout the semester

There were free twice weekly BBQs at my university, as well as free fruit, discounted vegetable boxes, free bra fittings, free breakfasted  and more. Make sure you keep subscribed to the Student Centre of your uni on Facebook to keep updated and chat to your uni friends.



3. Compensated Scientific Studies

I got $250 in second year for participating in a study for a new Strepsils spray for a sore throat. I just had to spend three hours there on the first day and come back for half an hour a week later. Easy money much! There were people handing out flyers for this study at my university.



My personal favourite student discounts from UNiDAYS are 10% off ASOS and up to 10% off Apple. Amazing right! Make sure you check it out before you buy your next Mac. ASOS is my personal favourite online clothing store since returns are easy and the quality is great for the price.

What I didn’t realise until now is that they also offer 25% off Australis when shopping online! You can see my Australis Cosmetics collection here.

    I remember what it was like to be a Uni student (even though it was ages ago!). I was always on the look-out for freebies! 🙂
