    You obviously have all the large companies such as Blackwells and AbeBooks.

    I think a couple of sites have tried to corner the market but have not really excelled due to low volume!

    I especially find the online banking helpful as a student. it makes it much easier to see what you have left from home and to be more efficient with your money.

    Student Council Tax Rebate
    Hi All

    I understand as a home owning student nowadays that you can get 25% council tax discount (certain terms and conditions apply etc.) but does anyone know if you can claim back any discount if you have finished studying?

    I sat a 5 year degree course back in 2007 and potentially could be ~£1800 better off if this was the case.

    Probably clutching at straws, but worth an ask!
