Students in need discount card - 5% at Play.com, 20% off Borders + more

Found 28th Feb 2009Made hot 1st Mar 2009
Students in need are doing their card for "free" at the moment with just a £1.95 postage and packaging charge (card is normally £5 + p&p I believe).

Gets some decent discounts most notably 5% off at Play.com (excludes PC and electricals) and 20% off at Borders.co.uk. Card will pay for itself very easily!

Got mine today, took just a few days to come. Get it while you can.

I beleive they now have another deal added to their card, 20% off AllPosters.co.uk

Is that for all of them? If so; better off to wait a bit until next cycle.

I think so but that's still a good few months. Basically if you want to order one book from Borders the card has paid for itself and I'm sure there are a lot of people that use play.com regularly.

But can you not use that RAC 5% off multiple times? Fair enoguh if you're using borders but it doesn't seem to have much extra that a regular student discount wouldn't have. I'll vote hot for borders though, 20% is decent.

Not everyone is an RAC member though, especially not students!

You don`t need to be a member to use the discount code. :thumbsup:

Isn't this the same as a V-card, seems to be the same discounts

Ah, I'm guessing you should be. I'm sure they'll clamp down on it sooner or later. There looks to be a good car insurance discount too, also oasis, french connection, avon etc. For £1.95 I don't think you can go too far wrong.

thanks heat added

Cheers

Thanks Barneydog. Will check it out.:thumbsup:

Gotta be worth it for the borders discount - text books can easily be £40 quid so 20% is well worth having - borders are good to use - used the 50% discount code at xmas (now that was a cool code !)!!

Paying for a discount card just seems mad. Even if it is for delivery.

We all carry bloody student cards - short of advertising, what do they want?!

well i ordered one. hopefully 10% cashback at borders will still work on top of the 20% off, serious saving.

The 5% @ Play is listed under "offer of the month". So will that only work for March?

I agree but Play.com don't offer discounts to holders of student cards. Not even with NUS cards!

I don't know if they still issue them, but to anyone that has one, the UCAS card gives you 5% off at play.com including electricals, and it doesn't seem to expire.

20% off borders sounds fine, but they are sooooo expensive to start with that is not a great deal. Also even when they do have a good buy they dont let you use the voucher with it, if the item was reduced.
