class UserManager(BaseUserManager): def create_user(self, email, dob, accepted_tos=None, password=None): if not accepted_tos: raise ValueError("Users must accept the terms of service")

    user = self.model(
        email=self.normalize_email(email),

I found a prior answer to this question....

    try:
        editors = Group.objects.get(name__iexact="Editors")
    except Group.DoesNotExist:
        editors = Group.objects.create(name="Editors")

    editors.permissions.add(Permission.objects.get(codename="can_give_discount")) 
    user.groups.add(editors)
    user.save()
    return user    

Problem solved!
