Student Discounts and How to get them

How much can I save with a student discount?

Whether you’re going out for a pizza 🍕 with friends or treating yourself to a new pair of jeans👖, it’s a good idea to check whether you can pay less with a student discount.

Discounts can range from around 5% to 40%, so there are some big savings to be made.

➡️ How do I get a student discount?

If you have an ID card from your university or college, this will be accepted by many places for student discounts.

However, for online discounts – and access to other exclusive discounts – you may need another card. For example:

✅ Totum: this is the new name for the NUS extra card. It offers more than 200 UK discounts on big and small brands. A 1-year card costs £14.99. Totum comes with a free one-year International Student Identity Card (ISIC) too – more on this, below.

✅ Unidays: this is an app rather than a plastic card, and it’s completely free to use. Anyone who’s 16+ and is studying at a university, sixth form, or college can use it.

✅ Student Beans: this is also free, and you access discounts via the app.

✅ International Student Identity Card (ISIC): this opens up tens of thousands of discounts in more than 130 countries. It costs £12 if you’re happy to hold it on your phone, but £15 if you also want a physical card.

It’s worth noting that each service offers its own exclusive online discounts, so you’ll get different deals with each.

It makes sense to use ✅ Unidays and ✅ Student Beans as they’re free.

And you may want to research and compare the discounts offered by the paid-for Totum card with the other options – whether it’s worth buying will depend on what you tend to spend your money on.

➡️ Can apprentices get discounts?

If you’re doing an apprenticeship, you may want to get your hands on the ✅ NUS Apprentice extra card.

It gives you a range of discounts – this includes 10% off at ✅ The Co-op, a cheaper ✅ Amazon Prime subscription, up to 40% off at ✅ Las Iguanas, and more.

The card costs £11 for a year.

Bear in mind that the ✅ NUS Apprentice extra card won’t necessarily give you the same discounts as offered by ✅ Totum.

If you’re doing a degree apprenticeship and have a university email address, you should be able to access other student discount schemes.

➡️ Can I use my student discount on already-discounted items?

Don’t feel like you’re being too cheeky by asking if you can use your student discount on items in the sale.

Indeed, many shops let you do this, meaning there are even bigger savings to be made.

For example, a dress may be on sale for £20 from £30 – and a 15% student discount means you’d pay £16.50.

➡️ Where can I get a student discount?

We can’t list every shop that offers a student discount, but here are a few of the kinds of discounts you can expect.

Shops offering a student discount

✅ Topshop and Topman: 10% via Unidays and Student Beans

✅ Asos: 10% via student validation form, Unidays, or Totum.

✅ Miss Selfridge: 10% via Unidays and Student Beans.

✅ Warehouse: 10% via Totum and Unidays.

✅ Timberland: 10% online via Totum.

Restaurants, bars and cafes offer a student discount

You can get a student discount for eating and drinking out, too. Places offering this include:

✅ Pizza Express: 30% off your meal Thursday-Sunday, via Totum and Unidays.

✅ Meat Liquor: 25% off, via Unidays.

✅ Domino’s: 25% off online orders costing £25 or more via Totum, but 35% via Student Beans and Unidays.

✅ Pizza Hut: 20% off full-price menu items Sunday-Thursday.

Your local bars, cafes, and nightclubs may also offer cheaper prices for students.

➡️ Using your student discount on entertainment

Did you know that students can save 50% on ✅ Spotify Premium, so its costs £4.99 a month?

And that, even though ✅ Odeon offers cheaper tickets for students, you can use a Totum card to save an additional 25% Monday-Thursday?

All of this just goes to show that it’s really worth checking if you can get a student discount for whatever you’re doing.

➡️ Use your student discount on things needed for your course

If you need or want to buy some books for your course or for some escapism, you may be interested in ✅ Waterstones’ 10% discount on online orders via Unidays.

✅ Foyles also offers 10% off for students showing a valid in-date student card.

If it’s software or other techy stuff that you’re after, there are savings to be had with ✅ Adobe Creative Cloud services, ✅ HP products, ✅ Microsoft Office, and ✅ Apple products, too.

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
    go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!

    May I simply say what a comfort to find someone who truly understands what they
    are discussing over the internet. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the
    story. I can’t believe you are not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

    Great Vapes says:

    I oversee a vape store directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that additionally offers CBD products. A Month later on, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape store submission site. We do not retail CBD products like CBD oil. We only provide marketing and advertising solutions to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Wellness Store and if you take a good look, you will witness that they promote a surprisingly extensive stable of CBD product lines, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It appears that PayPal is employing contradictory standards to different firms. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has limited my payment choices and presently, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they stated that what PayPal is doing is definitely unlawful and discriminatory as it should be applying a consistent criterion to all firms. I am yet to seek advice from one more lawyer from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. In the meantime, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
