Staff save more than £7,500 on Sussex Staff Discounts website since October

Since the University launched Sussex Staff Discounts website in October, more than 1,000 Sussex staff have registered on the site – making total savings in excess of £7,500.

Christmas is an expensive time for many people, so it’s worth remembering that you can save money by using the site, and it only takes five minutes to register.

The most popular retailers that colleagues are saving money with are Marks & Spencer, Cineworld, Sainsbury’s and Curry’s.

If you haven’t already registered this is a good time to do it. Colleagues who used the site to help with their Christmas shopping have made savings from £5 to £50 on single transactions.

“Every little helps”

You can buy e-vouchers instantly on your smart mobile phone, so even if you are already out and about doing your shopping, it’s not too late to get a discount.

If you’re travelling home over the festive period, it’s worth bearing in mind that the site also offers a 15% discount on Virgin Trains. You can also save money on theatre tickets in case you fancy a panto over the holiday.
