One thought on “Andy’s deals of the week 20 August 2022

  1. Hi Andy,
    I just found out I’m eligible for a Totum Pro card, so have signed up. Unclear if this will also allow me access to in-store discounts with some of the big retailers, do you know? Or do high streets only accept My Uni Days membership?
