TOTUM advert As an OU student, you are eligible to purchase a TOTUM card, powered by the National Union of Students (NUS). With the TOTUM card, you will have access to an ever-expanding range of discounted deals from food, essentials, tech, travel to home delivery, fashion, beauty and a whole lot more...

Prices are £14.99 for a 1 year card, £24.99 for 2 years and the 3rd year is thrown in for free. So, whether you are new to student life, are returning after a break or have recently graduated, make the most of your current student status and bag yourself three years of discounts for the price of two!

Cards include a free 12 month International Student Identity Card (ISIC) bolt-on and the option to include PASS-accredited Proof of age ID too.

In response to our changed circumstances during the current pandemic, TOTUM are working closely with brand partners to bring new offers for products that use home delivery and the internet.

TOTUM’s Essentials category includes lots of offers on the kind of things that make life that little bit easier. Current offers include 10% off every time you shop at the Co-op, easy-to-prepare food subscription packages delivered straight to your door with HelloFresh, sampling Smol’s eco-friendly laundry tablet delivery service and six months FREE Amazon Prime membership.
