Where Can I Get Student Discounts & Top Student Discount Shops

Quite simply here!

SDS was established in 2010 by a group of University friends studying at Bristol University, Leeds University and Manchester University – all who loved to save money.

We were initially an online forum of mates who would share online codes, company promotions, deals and special offers amongst ourselves. We each invited more friends to join the group until one day it became too large to manage and so we decided to launch our own website, with a view to spreading our money saving tips with other like-minded people all over the country; The Squirrel was born!

At the time there weren’t many sites dedicated to student finance and promotional codes so the squirrel led the charge. Nowadays there are also really good other websites who do great offers such as Unidays, Student Beans and Save the Student, so check those out too!

Since those early days our following has since grown – and we have recently relaunched our website – but the initial three of us still work on the site, whilst we also work with current undergraduates to keep us in the loop and sane. We like it that way.

UK & Worldwide Discounts

Although we are UK based many of our offers are applicable with oversea companies. In a world of online shopping we keep an eye globally in case there are offers that we think would appeal to you. We like to keep the squirrel busy!

Where possible we seek out discounts from retailers all over the world and these are often invaluable when you are travelling in summer, terms abroad or when backpacking on gap years.

As well as finding exclusive products some of our favourite brands can also be up to 50% cheaper just because they are bought online and from a different country. 

Where possible we also seek out discounts for retailers in Europe, USA, Asia and Australia – basically all over the world. 

Money Saving Advice For Your College & Uni Days

Let’s face it, no one wants to be spending all of their loans, money and hard-earned cash on basics and essentials. And despite the stereotypes, being an intelligent person of study (LOL – that’s you!)  doesn’t mean you must eat beans on toast for every meal. Far from it!

Allow us savvy squirrels to save you money by finding you amazing promos and money saving tips so you can still afford to live a lavish lifestyle! (Try saying that after a night down The Union!)

We will also help you find out how to FIND FREE CASH!!!! Yes, you read that correctly, there’s piles of cash tucked away in bursaries, scholarships and grants for those who need financial support: the trick is to hit as many angles as you can (location, dependents, your gender, subjects studied).

Your uni will have some schemes, but there are also private scholarships, sponsorships, grants and emergency funds floating out there too to help those who need support.

At SDS we therefore not only seek out online offers and promos but also more practical tips to help you save (and sometimes gain extra money), supporting you in difficult times.

Why The Squirrel?!!

LOL. The name Student Discount Squirrel came after a drunken night out. Something to do with squirrelling around for offers etc… you get the idea! We have been told to change it on many occasions but we love it, so we refuse. We would feel bad dumping the squirrel for a more corporate name so he’s staying!

Here is a photo of a squirrel. 

To celebrate Squirrel please share your squirrel photos on our Facebook page.

Every month we offer a prize to the best photo posted on the page.

In fact we giveaway lots of fun FREE prizes on our Facebook page – join the fun today! We have given away free university hampers and even all singing and all dancing Christmas trees!

Life as a Student

Student life is amazing, we’ve been there and loved it. Every aspect. Well, almost every aspect.

The fact is, you do have to budget, take advantage of deals and spend your money wisely. If you don’t, you’ll quickly run out of cash and that really is not an enjoyable experience. You’ll find yourself literally crying into your (Smart Price) cornflakes whilst your flatmates are frolicking off at the latest fresher’s event. But if we managed it, believe me you certainly can, especially if you use our money saving advice, discounts and tips.

Here at SDS we want you to have the best college and university experience possible so we will work hard on your behalf to offer you the biggest discounts.

It’s also worth checking NUS discounts as they have great promotions and deals too.

So, keep an eye on our website and our Facebook page for pop up online sales, discounts and special promotions on your favourite brands to ensure you are making savings on everything you buy. We even get bargains on essentials, from toilet roll to tea bags, right through to luxury items and designer brands. We like to cover all bases.

So what are you waiting for? Search our dedicated website today to start saving yourself money and taking advantage of our offers.

There are no catches, no obligations, sign ups or subscriptions, you are just a click away from a world of money saving offers, promotions, special offers and discounts to dive into.

Get involved.
