    The Great 'Student Discounts' Thread Part 2 18th Jul 08 at 4:53 PM
    MoneySavingExpert.com 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

    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.

    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.
  • Titch89
    Is this for any any student or just uni?
  • isellapples
    www.zionic.co.uk - they sell DIY PC kits (ie, all the parts and instructions you need, you just build it yourself). If you email or post them a copy of something that proves your a student (enrolment letter, student/nus card etc) after you register then you get access to their student prices. theres a link somewhere saying about it, cant remember where

    at McDonalds you can also get a Big Mac or McChicken sandwich with medium fries for 1.99- but this offer is for NUS Extra cardholders only, unlike the free McFlurry etc. offer which is available to all students.

  • Smickan
    Thanks

    With that are you able to buy 2 meals (for yourself and a friend who doesn't have the card) or is it one meal per card?
