Savvy Students “Bag” savings boost at Co-op

22 August 2017

Savvy students can “bag” an extra saving at their Co-op food store with NUS extra and Co-op Membership.

NUS extra cardholders receive a 10% discount off their groceries at the community retailer.

In addition, students who also become a Member of the Co-op will gain a further 5% reward on purchases of own-branded products and services – with a further 1% benefitting local good causes, community groups and charities.

Amanda Jennings, Co-op’s Director of Marketing Communications, said:

“With many students living away from home for the first time our partnership with NUS extra aims to support young people trying to balance their budget - eating the right food can bring about a boost to health, wellbeing and even educational achievement.”

Ali Milani, Vice-President (Union Development) at NUS, said:

“The cost of living is a concern for many students and this welcome move helps to reduce the burden on their budgets. On top of the 10% NUS extra discount, the Co-op’s new membership proposition not only provides a further 5% personal reward, but gives 1% to good causes and charities who make a difference in local communities - something that this generation of student cares deeply about.”
