10% Student discount coming soon at Morrisons - Starts 21st Sept

Just noticed on unidays that coming soon morrisions will be offering 10% off instore for students. Co op also do this but I do find them expensive. I am not interested in any negative views towards students and them being able to get discounts I just want to let people know about it. Says coming soon so worth keeping a eye on unidays and see when it does become available.

Update

High street supermarket Morrisons has become the first food chain in the UK to join the student discount club, and it launches just in time for Fresher's Week.

In an attempt to help cash-strapped students beat rising living costs, the supermarket is offering those in higher education 10% off all groceries and food at Morrisons Cafés nationwide, in a new three month trial set to launch on Wednesday

Think just about everyone who uses this site is a student so hot from me, probably won't last once they clock the majority of 'students' using the offer are over 40!

i am guessing being an open uni student this would also apply. would also guess needing an NUS card would be needd as well? never applied for one if im honest but regularly use co op and morrisons

You don't need an NUS card for UNiDAYS. You just download the app which can then be used for in store purchases.

If it's a UNiDAYS offer, why would you need an NUS card? It's a separate student platform..

You will just have to show your UNiDAYS app on your mobile.

Oh I stand corrected thanks for letting me know. Hubby has just finished his masters but can still use unidays till next year till his university email expires but still has the Nus card for 3 years

So what sort of course do you need to sign up to to get the unidays app?

how wrong could you be, i'd rather see old people and familys getting 10% off, oap's that have worked all their days, paid all their taxes and still cant feed themselves properly, and parents that work full time plus overtime and still cant feed the whole family, so maybe you should think first before you try and be smart, because all your doing is making an idiot of yourself

No, and they shouldn't. Giving to students is a strategic move that will pay off in the long run. For instance I used to work at tesco where due to the 10% staff discount I used to do all my shopping there. Now despite that I don't work there anymore, I still shop there. That's what Morrison is hoping. Capture the market when they are still young. Sorry for my economic lesson

We are all students.... for learning is life long

Guess you're not a student then.

just a heads up the discount will most certainly not include alcohol. I worked there a couple of years ago and they stopped staff discount on alcohol because of the introduction of minimum prices of alcohol.

Heat added though hope they keep up some of the sales theyve been offering

​We are all students but some of us are without unidays account

this is the final straw. discounts everywhere for students.
changing my name tomorrow by deed poll to Stewart Dent. easier than 5 years at uni.

Why shouldn't students get the discount? Do you realise how little money they have left after forking out accommodation costs.

Excellent deal, students are already being shafted by people who have benefitted from free education.

Good on Morrisons, strategic move.

I hope the discount also applies to NUS card holders as well as just via Unidays.

It doesn't. Unidays ID not an NUS card. If you show your NUS card you won't get anything

Just to set some things straight, oaps in this country have a very decent standard of living. Any oap who does not go into their senior years with bad habits and multiple debts has a perfectly reasonable standard of life. They have a minimum income called guaranteed pension credits. That, along with housing benefit , council tax benefit, Attendance allowance and winter fuel allowance means that without vices, they should be able to live comfortably without the need for 10% off in Morrison's. It seems you have forgotten the hard working students (many who have families themselves) who have racked up thousands in debt to try to better themselves to try to contribute more to society too pay the pensions, benefits etc of the other parts of society who need it.
Your argument is not only poorly informed, its rather insulting to large proportions of the people you feel you are arguing for.

We study full time, if you're doing a demanding course like mine (electromechanical engineering) we don't have time to work on the side more than maybe a Saturday job. If I lived purely on my student loan I'd have around £40 a month once my accomdation is paid for, and I'm looking at graduating with ~£55k of debt after all that. Assuming I get a reasonably good engineering grad job (£45k) I'll be paying back £3000 a year until the loan gets written off when I'm 50 or whatever, which due to the interest the loan accrues I'll never manage to finish paying off. Money which could go towards a deposit on a house etc will instead be going towards a loan which had its terms changed after we had taken it out, alongside the fees being increased this year half way through our degrees.

So yea, 10% less on shopping will be nice. I feel very sorry for the OAPs who can't afford to heat their houses but students also have problems to deal with.

yeah, you tell 'em! bloody students, it's all their fault...

economy, ISIS, immigration.. can all be directly attributed to the student population

I'm not so sure it is that good for Morrison's longer term. When people leave university and move on, they probably won't feel much loyalty. Many people go to a supermarket out of convenience rather than brand.

For regular customers, they need to watch pricing to see if they start to go up by a percent or so. When one group get something for free or discounted, others are paying for it somehow.

​as someone with a degree in electronics and a PhD in semiconductor physics, I have to tell you that 45k is not realistic,perhaps when you have 10-15 years experience

I think all the hukd members now knows who the idiot is



As a full time student, I can only get decent work during the holidays. Of course I work during term time but I don't get many shifts and I'm on a zero hours contract so it's not something I can rely on. Holiday work is competitive and normally advertised internally first and companies are unlikely to choose a temporary worker like me. It means I don't have much money and small discounts like this really do help me.

It's all very well moaning about students but, when my student loan doesn't cover my accommodation, let alone living expenses, I'd invite you to walk a mile in my shoes first.

At least some percentage will remain. That's why you've uniday and NUS extra. Also, some newspapers such as the Economist and financial time, have heavy discounts for students as they try to get them reading and get use to it sooner than latter
Edited by: "Kindsaver" 19th Sep 2016

If you can afford uni fees and you are gonna get boosted graduate starting salary, why do you need discount at Morrisons, it would be better if folk on benefits got the 10% surely not.

But, if you went to uni and can't afford the fees and you're not getting a boosted graduate starting salary, why did you go?

Not looking for a load of students to jump down my throat, just looking to make other people on here aware of my views whether they agree or not.

​Well I'm a single parent who works and also goes to uni to eventually get a better life for my son. I struggle constantly at mo and this would help. Please don't presume that all students are non-working people and don't struggle, there are a wide range of students in different situations..same as in all walks of life.
Thank you op

Anyone know if this includes Morrisons Discount and the fuel garages too?

Well, time to go back to school

I'll start shopping at mozzies then
