    Dorothy Perkins have a 10% or 15% discount for students. (It used to be 15%, not sure which it is now, but it's still there!)
    it's usually 10%, but sometimes they have promotions where it goes up to 15% for a while. Also, if you have a snapfax, there is an offer for 20% off your first purchase.
  • All Arcadia stores ( Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Evans etc) are stopping student discount at the end of this month !!!!

    Apple have an education store which offers 10% off i think, on laptops and apple powermacs (not ipods tho :) !!! ) Click the education store link on their online shop.
  • If you're at uni in London you can get a student oyster card, which enables you to a discount on travelcards (e.g. £16.90 for a weekly zone 1 & 2 travelcard, it's usually £24.20)

    Most cinemas will do discounts for students, but if you live near a Vue the lastminute.com Vue cinema standby offer may well be cheaper:

    Also, hopefully most people know this, but if you are a student you should get a discount or exemption from your council tax.

    I walked past Schuh shoe shop on my way to work this morning and they have a big "10% student discount" sign in the window. I imagine this would be the same in all branches.
    Thank you to all who post comps and good luck to all who enter :j
  • Specsavers are giving a 25% discount on frames and lenses at the moment which is the same as the standard student discount. However, if you are a student and are considering purchasing a new pair of glasses, it may be wise to hang on as the student discount will rise to 30% around the 8th (ish) of September. If you are lucky, as I was, the very nice staff may offer you the student discount at 30%, before it is officially available.I am looking for a pair of Varifocals at about £130, so the saving is certainly worthwhile and it looks like it is even cheaper than Dolland and Aitchison which is offering 50% off selected frames.If you can get the latest M&S Magazine, it has a voucher for20% off frames and lenses at D and A, although it is not valid on sale prices, so the choice is yours.
    I hope that the above is helpful and if anyone knows of any other discounts for this(rather mature) student, please share them.

    Thanks for the info about McDonalds - I wasn't actually aware of that one at all. Also I would be interested to know if the 10% discount at Poundland that somebody mentioned previously is actually true, because it would be v embarrassing to ask if they do student discount and be refused!

    I don't know if QS the clothes shop is in all parts of the country but I got 20% off there recently (and on sale stock too which I'm sure shouldn't have been allowed).

    Also at Odeon Cinemas their student ticket is £5 and I don't think it matters what time of day it is.
