A to Z list of available student discounts in the UK (Online and in-store discounts listed)

LocalFound 12th Dec 2012
I just received a list of available student discounts through email.

I thought this would make an excellent post on HUKD, as I'm sure many students visit this site, and with Christmas upcoming what bettter time to be aware of this discount list than now?! I've compiled this list into a nice readable format, and added some of the discounts that I know about personally. Please post if you know of any others, and I'll add them to the list.

Please remember that you may need an NUS extra card to take advantage of some of these offers...

Thanks! Just added your list of discounts to the OP
The 25% off National Express is only off FULL PRICE tickets, not off saver ones in advance. Just worthy to note. Hot for the effort, as a student, thanks.
Heat for the effort.

How do you get the Play.com discount?



At the checkout stage on the right hand of the page there will be a "promotional or discount voucher" feature. Enter the last 8 numbers on your card for the discount to apply
Thanks just emailed the list to my daughter to forward to her uni mates

You're welcome, I'm glad I could help contribute! I wish there was a more wide-spread list as a lot of my friends have no idea about these discounts

I wondered about this too, I don't have a NUS card at the moment but I am supposed to have one coming through Lloyds TSB soon. It probably will always work out better to buy the £5/cheap fares in advance, but good to know if you need to book a coach ticket at short notice. It is also worth noting about the £10 O2 coach offer - which you can find here. Very useful if you need to use multiple coaches to travel home from Uni as one £10 ticket covers coach changes
brill post!
Great effort, cheers
The HMV or Play.com doesn't work online for me, tried my NUS extra card.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that one is instore only.
Sent list to hapless junior, maybe he can spend his own money instead of mine!

Thanks Op!
Thank You! .. heated
hmv hasnt done student discount in a while, only that certain few weeks offer a while ago and thats it.
Note: Matalan discount is only applicable when you have a Matalan card (It's free ofc)
Dorothy Perkins varies, could be between 10-25%, it varies when they have offers on etc.
Amazon isn't off everything, but I can't remember precisely what.
GAME still offer a 10% discount instore with a NUS card still.
Shadowmancer88

NUS Extra for that one, definitely.

Shoe Zone offer 10% I believe (on non-extra!)
Everytime I try and use the amazon one it always says its not valid on this item so not sure if it is on everything
Thanks..
Page bookmarked! Very useful. Thanks OP.
Thanks for this! Good idea OP
This is great! Thanks
I hope I'm corrected by this- I used to get 5% off at Play.com through NUS (I'd get my code from the NUS site upon a purchase) earlier this year I noticed they weren't listed on the NUS site so I called Play.com and they informed me they had discountinued their business with NUS. If someone can inform me how you get your discount with Play nowadays, I would be greatful. Great post btw, Subway I never even knew!
I've just seen that Motel are giving 20% student discount at the moment too (I think they normally do 10%) - you can also get £10 store credit if you sign up for their newsletter, I'm not sure if you can use them together but might buy a dress or two and see if I can
Frankie & Benny's NUS discount is 20% I believe?
thanks so much OP, me and other student will find this very useful
Thanks
Plenty here I was unaware of, need to start asking more places again worst they can say is no

Yeah exactly

Another money saving tip for those that go out clubbing quite a bit:
Its worth buying discount cards from 'reps' sometimes... I used to work for 'Bubble Card'. This card entitles you to 50p off many clubs, and 10% off Nandos on weekedays. Do the maths and you will save... Be sure to always do your research before buying one of these discount cards mind.

I can't find the student discount for Play.com on either the NUS site (used to be there) or the MyUniDays site, anyone know how?
