1. Does Argos do a Student Discount?

A very popular question we get asked at SDS!

Well to be honest the answer is not a straightforward one and policy changes all the time.

There are the current Argos Student Savings listed at the top of this guide – both great ways to save your student loan money – but not an official money-off scheme. But, although they don’t have a year round discount scheme at the moment – we will update you if short term ones pop-up – which they often do!


We’ve compiled our famous student discount table below, which lists the best promo codes, voucher codes, top offers and more on leading products. If one takes your eye just click and save money!

2. Student Savings

There are lots of ways to save but without a permanent full-time Student Saver and standard NUS Argos deals as mentioned, you have to be savvy students about how to save.

We recommend checking out their main homepage, checking for one off voucher codes and discount codes (which we always list) and making use of their student free delivery scheme.

They also have great Clearance pages – discussed further down this guide.

Most of the top offers and best savings are made on line – so you don’t have to do what this woman is doing in store with her small pencil and paper! #thowback

There are over 1 billion visits to according to the Sainsbury’s website and 2 of their catalogues are produced every year. With over 29 million customers, it looks like she is here to stay!!! Woooo that is massive!
