Honestly? , for Currys/PC World... with Nectar points I'd wager.
10% is pretty stingey for any company and is not a proper discount as it can easily be absorbed by other business practices.

Yeah making the other customers foot the bill to give the snowflakes a discount. They should add 10 percent for these economically inactive individuals.

Tbh 10% is decent if you're after a high end TV or something
7.5% off a laptop. WTF?

You do realise why companies offer student discount right?

Are you aware how little profit is in stuff like that?

It's better than not saving 7.5%.

Judging by the date in his username, university was probably free/a lot cheaper if he attended university. Correct me if I'm wrong but we've had a 900% increase in tuition fees (I know, inflation etc.) in the past 20 years and will not likely ever pay off our student loans unless we get a real top job but hey, 10% off a new TV makes up for that...

Well to be fair student discounts are not about the money, if they were then the discounts would be better.

It's a token gesture to a group of people going through a very important and informative point of their life, if a company treats them well during this period they've got a customer for life.

Then again, that reasoning requires intelligence, empathy, and common sense. It's hard to believe anyone who uses the word "snowflake" without irony is capable of such reasoning.

Employees only get 10% and you have to put up with working for them. So this is a great deal!

Even then this isn't good enough for them, they want more, because they have no money. Their loans are tax payed subsidised, they're economically inactive for the next three years and still want more.Poor Ollie87 thinks that such things will earn these companies a customer for life, he is very wrong indeed. Ollie thinks I have no empathy with university students and yes that is in most cases correct. The generation that looks for excuses for everything and are upset and offended by everything while being fluid gender, non-binary, trans-age. The pensioners have no money, the working poor have no money, the "Just About Managing" familes have no money but yet Ollie thinks that students should have a discount because they have no money. Poor Ollie doesn't seem to understand that they discounts offered by these awful companies is not borne by the companies they simply pass these costs on.Poor Ollie thinks discounts are a token gesture and not a sales gimmick. Poor Ollie thinks the whole world owes him because he is a student. Poor Ollie has no idea. I'm sure Ollie will get a job while studying or while he studied and pay tax.


To be fair, Graham, you can't put all students under the same umbrella.

As I posted this deal, you'll appreciate the fact that I'm a student - albeit not in my 20s, and studying from home, but regardless, I'm still a student.

I've worked hard and self-funded the vast majority of my courses, and it's being done for my development rather than career or other reasons - I'm lucky to be in a position whereby I've climbed the ranks into a relatively high position employment wise.

Admittedly, I'm sure your statement does apply in some cases, but there's also plenty where it doesn't.

I brought up the money as a lot of the older people that I see complain say about not having discounts like these when they were a student but forget about the massive jump in fees All very true though!

What we need, going off topic, is to get rid of courses that have no meaningful benefit of society. Medical and STEM get priority, heavily subsidized and the focus of colleges and HE institutions. We have pointless courses that the only outcome is for the students to teach the course. Native American history? Labour destroyed this in 1997 with the "everybody should go" mentality.

We HAD a university system that was the envy of the world. Now if you like the look of the building you get to go. We need strict entrance exams to the university not just your a-level grades, we need rolling pass marks in courses, your competing all the time with others on the course. Work experience (paid or voluntary) will be built into the course, those three months over summer wont see you "have a well deserved break" you will work!

There's too much money to be made. Education is no longer about education, it's a business.

Wish I knew that before I got myself in £45,000 of debt + interest. But, parents being parents are always pressuring their kids into university thinking that's the best way to get a good career - in fact it's been the opposite most cases for us uni grads post 2012.
