Student loan running low?

Been studying hard?

Need to unwind?

Well no problem! You can still have a party! Put the textbooks away for one night and treat yourself to a night of fun. With our fabulous cashback deals you don’t have to pay big money to have a good time. No matter what sort of party you want to have, we have it covered. Whether you want a quiet film night or social gathering of the year, sleepover or fancy dress there is no need to stress out with these cracking deals available for you and your mates! From Freshers to Postgrads we’re sure you will appreciate them.

Fancy Dress:

If you want to be the best dressed even when money is tight, then Angels is the place for you. You can get 5% off your first order, and if your group of friends buy together and spend £70, you can get free delivery as well!

Fancy Dress

Film Night/Sleepover:

Lovefilm – get a free 30 day trial and get £12.50 cashback on new subscriptions. Bargain! Have as many cosy nights in as you want for just a small sum each month. Don’t forget the popcorn! Or perhaps splash out and get a takeaway and who can resist that when there is cashback to be had.

Fancy that takeaway we mentioned? How about up to 3.15% cashback on Domino's and Just Eat?!


Party in a different City:

Planning on going to a different city to party, here’s how to save money!

The most obvious tip is to think whether friends or family live where you intend to travel to, this will help to offset some of the cost. If that isn’t an option, we have some great cashback deals with hotels such as Travelodge and Premier Inn. These two well-known hotels offer London stays from just £69, plus you get up to 4.2% cashback. Remember it’s cheaper in the week so if you have a particular day off, take advantage before the exam time comes.

Don’t be worried about transport costs! Coaches/buses can be really cheap especially with 5.25% cashback at National Express. If you prefer trains, offers 1.57% cashback to put you on the right track. Also if you own a 16-25 railcard, you knock a third off of your train fares!


Cashback On House Party Essentials:

Planning on have an awesome house party with the coolest music, lots of snacks and plenty of drinks without having to spend over the odds? Then here’s where we can help. Let’s be honest, what’s a party without good music? (We’ve all been to those parties where the music sucks!) Save yourself some money with iTunes 4.2% cashback and create your ultimate party playlist without paying the ultimate price.  

Plus, you have to have snacks right? Eat like a real student with bulk buys on value/basic food at Asda (£5.77 when you sign up as a new member and spend over £30) and Tesco which give £5.25 cashback on sign ups. Indulge in lots of crisps and sweets and also stock your cupboard whilst you’re at it with plenty of noodles/pasta. Already sick of that? Need to stick to a budget? Just take a look at our TCB Student Living – Easy Budget meals blog for a few fancy ideas that won’t swallow your student loan.  


Party Holiday:

When the exams are over next summer, there is one thing on many students’ minds… Holiday! Whether it’s Ibiza, Magaluf, Malia or any of the other summer destinations, there are ways to help you cut your costs. With plenty of sales all year round and some great cashback there are plenty of ways to slash your holiday expenses. Thomas Cook offers plenty of cheap package holidays such as stay in Majorca from just £117pp and with 2.62% cashback on top who can resist? Looking for a place to stay? has you sorted with upto 5.25% cashback, or if all you need is a ticket then Monarch offers up to 1.05% cashback on flights.
