With the Office for National Statistics (ONS) highlighting that half (50%) of students feel they’re facing financial difficulties, Virgin Media O2 wants to help students start their university year on a money-saving high this September.
From ultrafast internet to a market leading 20% off mobiles, Virgin Media O2 is helping students to kick start the academic year while saving money on some of the essentials.
Students looking for a new device so they can study, stream, and stay in touch with friends and family can enjoy 20% off a new phone simply by signing into UNiDAYS, UNIiDAYS GRADLiFE or TOTUM to get a unique online basket code. Those who already have an O2 contract can simply apply the student discount code to their bill by signing into UNiDAYS to get a code and then texting the word ‘STUDENT’ followed by the code to 61202 to benefit from a student discount.
The deal doesn’t stop there as O2 offers a range of additional money-saving perks including:
For students in need of extra help, can benefit from a free O2 SIM which provides 20GB of free data per month for up to six months if they’re from a low income household and either have no access or insufficient access to the internet at home, AND/OR have no or insufficient access to the internet when away from the home AND/OR cannot afford a monthly mobile contract.
For those in a house share looking to boost their broadband so everyone can get online to work, game, and stream simultaneously, Virgin Media O2 is offering a 12-month contract with no set up fee so students can pocket a little extra saving.
Virgin Media broadband is available on 12-month contracts for the below bundles:
Plus, any student household with both Virgin Media broadband and at least one eligible O2 mobile plan can unlock extra benefits at no extra charge simply for being a customer of both Virgin Media and O2. All they need to do is sign into their Virgin Media and O2 accounts and activate their Volt benefits there to get a broadband speed boost to the next available tier, a market-leading WiFi guarantee as well as double mobile data on all eligible mobile plans.
