As an affiliate, I get bombarded with student promotions every August. Strictly speaking, I should post these to the Smarter Card website but as that’s still under construction, I have picked the best three and shared these below.

First up, the Virgin Media student package.

Virgin Media is always a favourite with students as their cable broadband is accessible without a landline, which is an instant saving of around £10 per month compared to  other providers like BT, O2 and Orange. Furthermore, Virgin Media offers the fastest download speeds, even when internet is shared between a large group of students. Finally, Virgin Media’s student package is available on a 9 month contract whilst other providers require students to sign up for 12 months.

Our 9 month broadband deal for students is perfect if you’re sharing a house for the next academic year. Choose broadband on its own or get a great value bundle with home phone or TV as well. Whichever you go for, you’ll get all the trimmings too, like Virgin Media Security, our free security package, and free servicing and repairs.

Next, we have Endsleigh’s student contents insurance.

Other insurers have tried to break the student market but none have succeeded. There’s a good reason for this: Endsleigh’s product offering has been refined over the last 40 years and is without doubt the most comprehensive student insurance package. And it’s cheap, too!

Finally, we have a range of offers from Orange.
