TOTUM Tips: Best Tech Deals To See You Through Lockdown #3 | TOTUM
Ben Hayward January 13th

By now most students should have received the second instalment of your maintenance loan for the 2020/21 academic year. 

Now, while we don’t want to encourage any sort of reckless spending as soon as the cash hits your bank account (you can check out our advice on how to make sure your loan lasts here) with bars, gyms, restaurants and a whole host of other money-sapping places closed for at least the next couple of months, you may find you have a little bit more can than usual in your account. 

You could always save it - but you could also invest in something useful which you otherwise may not have been able to afford...


And with so much of our lives now moving into online or digital platforms, it kind of makes sense to make sure that all your tech is fit for purpose to help make doing things remotely as painless as possible. 

So, from the best deals on laptops and tablets, to money-saving phone contracts, online shopping and more, TOTUM has some of the best student tech discounts to get you through lockdown #3.
