WHAT IS THE TOTUM STUDENT DISCOUNT CARD?
Studying with us here at Absorb Online Learning doesn’t just further your knowledge and opportunities –it also allows you to take advantage of several benefits. We all know that students at university or college can take advantage of a number of student discounts – so why not those learning from home? Replacing the old NUS Extra card comes the new TOTUM PRO card, a way for our online students to enjoy the 100’s of discounts in the UK alone through our online learning courses. Read on for how you can sign up for this card, and the many savings it will bring you.
With all the great discounts you’ve come to love, the new TOTUM card gives you the same savings, but with new additional features and functionality all rolled into the TOTUM app. The pair allow you to access more local deals, exciting financial features and act as a proof of ID. If you have an NUS card this will still be valid for all of its old features, to gain the full benefit of these new updates you’ll have to sign up for the new card as soon as your old one expires. To qualify for the TOTUM card, however, you will have to be a student completing a course that leads to an Ofqual regulated qualification. Here at Absorb Online Learning, we only run online Ofqual courses that validate you for the TOTUM Card – GCSEs and A-Levels.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Much like the old application process for the NUS card, applying for TOTUM is simple.
Following your payment (£14.99 for 1 year, £22 for 2 years), your card will be delivered within 7 working days, and you can start saving with over 200 UK discounts.
THE BENEFITS OF THE TOTUM CARD
The TOTUM Pro card offers a huge range of discounts from 10% off Macs and ASOS to 15% off Dell and 20% off EE phone contracts – all designed to make studying that little bit easier. The card is £14.99 for 1 year but TOTUM do have an amazing offer on at the moment. TOTUM PRO Price Promotion – members can buy a two-year membership card and TOTUM will chuck in an extra year FOR FREE.
