We can confirm that currently there is no standard Argos student discount. This means there is no Unidays Argos code, NUS Totum or Student Beans codes either. However, there is a student essentials page which is a useful place to pick up all you need for uni at cheap prices.GET STUDENT DEALS >
There are some useful categories to browse such as laptops and tablets, student house essential starter kits, home office and photography.
We’ve done some more research and found it’s still possible for students to save. The first is students must check out the Argos clearance page. It’s a directory page to the best bargains.GET DEALS >
It’s a really well-organised page and breaks down the deals into categories including technology, home and garden, clothing etc. Then within these, they again are divided into subsections such as for technology laptops and pcs, ipads and tablet and video games.
Also sometimes students can get a £10 voucher off spends over £100. There is also one for £5 off £50 spend too. This runs on limited weeks throughout the year so check the page to see if the offer is live.GET VOUCHER >

1. DOES ARGOS DO STUDENT DISCOUNT?
As you can imagine “is there an Argos student discount?” is one of the top questions we get asked here at the Student Discount Squirrel HQ. At the moment there is no official Argos student discount scheme (although this can change). This also means no Argos Unidays, NUS Argos or Student Beans voucher code available either. But, although they don’t have a year-round Argos Student discount scheme we will update you if short term ones pop-up – which they often do!
However, no fear. there are still ways that you can save at this top British retailer – there are the current Argos Student Savings listed at the top of this guide (which we think are fab).
Plus in this official Argos Student Discount guide we also look at other Argos discount codes, Argos sale, offers and deals so read on and bag yourself a bargain today.GET STUDENT DEALS >
2. UNIDAYS ARGOS
With so many different student discount schemes in the UK now, such as NUS Extra and Student Beans, it can be confusing to find out if it is possible to get an Argos student discount code to use. We get asked about it a lot. Never fear, the Squirrel is here to answer them.
Unfortunately, there is no Argos Unidays discount. This means there is no code available through the myunidays.com website. Argos is also not listed there. We believe this is because there is currently no Argos student discount in 2020.
NUS ARGOS TOTUM & ARGOS NUS CARD
Unfortunately, there is no Argos NUS Totum agreement. This is not surprising as there is no Argos student discount to be had with anyone at the moment, as we have mentioned in section one! However, remember to read our savings section at the top of the page for the latest ways students can actually save, such as Argos sales, Argos clearance deals, Argos voucher codes and the latest Argos promo codes.
With so many great discounts on at the moment – but no direct Argos NUS Discount or current Argos student code as mentioned – one good way to save is with free same-day home delivery for NUS Argos discount for cardholders (for all online purchases). All you have to do is get validation with your ac.uk email address and you are good to go. Every little helps.
Also remember, there are regular Argos discount codes releases during the year. SDS is here to update you with the best of them here. As these are limited-time Argos promo codes we recommend you sign up to our FREE newsletter or follow us on Facebook, that way you will be the first to hear!GET STUDENT DEALS >

3. STUDENT SAVINGS AT ARGOS
There are lots of ways to save money at Argos but without a permanent full-time Argos Student discount and standard NUS Argos deal in place as mentioned, you have to be savvy students about how to save. We recommend checking out their main homepage, checking for one-off Argos voucher codes and Argos discount codes (which we always list) and making use of their student free delivery scheme.
They also have great Argos clearance pages – discussed further down this guide. This is a great way to save, also check out delivery options such as fast track and same day.
Most of the top offers and best savings are made online – so you don’t have to do what this woman is doing in-store with her small pencil and paper! #throwbackGET DEALS >

Take a look at our table for the latest ones. As there is no Argos student discount these are currently the best ways to save.
So keep your eyes peeled we will update those latest deals here.
5. ARGOS FREE DELIVERY AND ARGOS CLEARANCE SECTION
As mentioned above there is FREE DELIVERY on all orders for all students – at all times. No student NUS id is required and it is applied at the checkout. This is BRILLIANT!
It’s a pet hate at Student Discount Squirrel when you’ve bagged a bargain then pay for delivery – you lose half of the saved money! Other UK shops and retailer – listen up! There are lots of options to consider including fast track and day delivery – so check out what is available for you.

6. STORE OVERVIEW
UK-based catalogue retailer Argos is a subsidiary of supermarket Sainsburys and a one-stop-shop for anything the British public needs to buy on the high street.
Twice a year, the company releases a new catalogue from which items can then be purchased either online, through a smartphone app or in high-street stores.
The newest editions of the catalogues have over 1,600 pages of items and can be browsed online or in-store. The in-store catalogues can be taken away or browsed within the shop, where each page is individually laminated to allow for heavy usage.
Items desired for purchased are then written onto a small order form and taken to a till (either a self-service card machine or a staffed till point) to be bought. And who doesn’t have a mini Argos pencil somewhere stashed away in a bag or pencil case?! Items are then delivered to an in-store collection point which the customer can pick up their selected purchase from the warehouse. Catalogues are accompanied by frequent seasonal sale event additional inserts.
The Argos range is all-encompassing for all things house and home, including, but by no means limited to technology, home and garden, baby and nursery, toys, sports and leisure, health and beauty, clothing and jewellery. Bar groceries and specialist items, there’s very little you could need and not find in an Argos store!
Brands stocked include a range of Argos own brand products (such as Elizabeth Duke, Steamworks, Cookworks, Pro Action and Opticom), as well as well-known household names across all of its store categories.
Student wise, Argos offers some great value home furnishings that make for cheap and easy decoration of any student home without breaking the bank.
What’s more, with almost 900 stores across the UK and Ireland, it’s estimated that 96% of the population live within 10-miles of an Argos shop, so you’re not often far from your next bargain purchase! This includes shops and concessions within Sainsburys and Homebase stores.
It’s always worth keeping an eye on the Argos website rather than just physical brochures, as there’s often money-off offers and sales featured online that aren’t available in-store – and you can have such items either delivered directly to you or to a local store for free pick-up. This iconic British retailer can be a real destination for bargain hunters no matter what it is they’re shopping for. It’s certainly a friend to skint students everywhere, and thoroughly Student Discount Squirrel approved!GET DEALS >
THE HISTORY OF ARGOS
Argos began life as Green Shield Stamps, which could be bought as a type of gift voucher and then spent at a range of retailers, and the Green Shields catalogue. The stamps were popular through the 60s and early 70s but the scheme began to struggle when retailers started to pull out to focus on their own sales and offer events. Eventually, the stamps could only be spent on items from the catalogue, then combined with cash, and then finally, as the catalogue became cash-only, it re-branded to Argos.
The first Argos-branded store opened in 1973 in Edgware and within a year was taking £1million a week! Thousands of staff were employed by the new chain and as the own-brand Elizabeth Duke jewellery counter opened, it quickly became one of the largest jewellery retailers in the UK.
Previously owned by Home Retail Group, the chain was sold to Sainsburys in 2016 for £1.4billion after a bidding war between them and a South African firm. Some standalone stores have closed and moved into supermarkets, but there’s still over 900 of them throughout the UK. Argos is now firmly a household name and has seen off competitors such as Index and Littlewoods. We have been helping students save money at this leading and versatile retailer for years.
