As I’m sure I’ve no doubt made you all aware by now, I seem to be living up to the stereotypical student lifestyle… right down to my finances. It’s actually been something that’s had me pretty concerned over the last few weeks – I thought trying to find time for a job as an undergraduate was bad, but being a full-time, 9-5 daily Masters student? Nooo thanking you.
So, what do you do? I can’t exactly afford to start skipping classes just to start earning, and I’m hella not creative enough to become one of those people who magically starts up their own little money-maker in their own time at home. So, what’s the next best thing?
Discounts, of course!
Honestly, I LOVE a discount. If I get a chance to flash my student card, or get a two-for-one deal, I am very happy. So when I discovered that a website dedicated to discounts exists, I jumped straight on it – especially when they have a dedicated lipstick section!
LatestDeals.co.uk is a fab money-saving website for finding deals and freebies. From online stockists to high street stores, these guys aim to find their users the biggest savings on a whole range of products. They have steps in place to ensure that they only list and advertise genuine deals, and have a system in place so that the deals come from other customers, rather than businesses themselves. So many of these websites sometimes have some sort of catch to them, so it’s super reassuring that these guys have reflected on this and taken steps to ensure this doesn’t happen!
Using the website is also really simple; just search for your deals, and when you come across one, click on the “Get deal” button (as seen in the image above). They will then redirect you to the website offering the deal, and you just go about completing your purchase as normal – and get your discount in the process! Easy peasy!
Just by scrolling through the first few pages of results, you’ll come across brands such as Rimmel, NIP + FAB and Bobbi Brown. And when I consider how much I actually spend on makeup when it comes down to it, the thought of saving a few pounds on such products is definitely a welcome one!
These guys have a pretty good rep in the money-saving community, with so many people really enthusiastic about the deals they’ve managed to get involved in. Check it out here – and let me know if you manage to score any bargains!
