The Great 'Student Discounts' Thread Part 2 Official Insert:

MoneySaver Smickan has compiled a fantastic list of discounts available for students at the moment so as the original Great Student Discounts Hunt was several years old and had grown long, we've hijacked Smickan's post and turned this into the Great Student Discounts Hunt Part Two!

If you know of any others not included here please click reply to add your top spots.

Many thanks Smickan and all other contributors to this thread.

Back to the original post...

With the previous thread for Student Discounts being started four years ago, obviously a lot that are already listed have expired or changed dramatically.

I hope I'm not treading on anyones toes or annoying anyone but I thought that we could have an up-to-date list :)

Thank you to all who contributed - I've put the usernames at the end of all offers to show who posted each.

A lot will need the NUS/NUS Extra cards, especially if the discount is just listed with the amount (example: Burger King) Remember to take at least your college/uni card with you when you ask)

Some of them may have expired or changed again :) I've stopped going back when I reached the year point as I didn't want to link the old ones together when we couldn't check. If anyone knows if they're still running/knows of anymore please let us know :)

  • The 5% Amazon discount through NUS Extra can only be used once :mad:

    You can get 10% at Zavvi with one of their student discount cards - just produce your NUS/NUS Extra card and fill in a form for their student discount card.

    10% at HMV, but you MUST have one of their discount cards - they issue these in September to coincide with the new uni term.

    10% at Dorothy Perkins and Topshop.

    The 5% Amazon discount through NUS Extra can only be used once :mad:

    Thats not true I have used it many times this year. Once its been added to the account once it automatically takes the discount off when you buy a CD, DVD or Book. You don't need to enter the code each time it stays on the account.
  • Thats where I've been going wrong then ... I've been entering the code, then Amazon tells me to sod off :p

    Apologies folks - was having a dumb moment :o

    Not so much discounts, but studentish-freebies - It may be worth emailing some companies and asking if they have samples/donations to a poor student - it all depends on how much cheek you have :)

    I sent an email to places like Bic, Sheaffer, Pritt, various local stationers etc and although a lot have been no-no's, many others have surprised me with their generosity.
