“There is currently a special page to get the latest Argos discount codes in 2019 . Head here on and see if you can save. No NUS id is required so it’s quick and easy!”.

1. Does Argos Do a Student Discount?

At the moment in 2019 there is no official Argos student discount scheme where they give validated students a percentage off. This means no Argos Unidays, NUS Totum or Student Beans voucher code is available either.

However there are still ways that you can save. There are the current Argos Student Savings listed at the top of this guide which we think are fab.

This has the latest ways to save including Argos discount codes, Argos sale, offers and deals.

But, although they don’t have a year round Argos Student discount scheme at the moment – we will update you if short term ones pop-up – which they often do!

2. Is There an Argos Unidays, NUS Totum or Student Beans Codes?

With so many different student discount schemes such as NUS Extra and Student Beans, it can be confusing to find out if it is possible to get a Argos student discount code. We get asked about it a lot. Never fear, the Squirrel is here to answer them!

Argos NUS Totum

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. However, remember to read our savings section at the top of the page for the latest ways students can actually save like Argos sales alerts, Argos clearance deals, Argos voucher codes and the latest Argos promo codes.

With so many great discounts on at the moment – there is no direct Argos NUS Discount or current Student code as mentioned. That said, there is free same day home delivery for NUS Argos discount for card holders for all online purchases. All you have to do is get validation with your email address and you are good to go.

There are regular Argos discount code 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!

Argos Student Discounts, Sales & Deals Discount Expires

10% Argos Discount Code (selected items) 20% 30/06/2019

3. Student Savings

There are lots of ways to save but without a permanent full-time Argos Student discount 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 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.

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! #throwback

4. Argos Voucher Codes & Argos Promo Code

Argos Voucher Codes and Argos Promo Codes are the easiest and quickest ways to save money.

These types of offers are open to all too – not just students.

At this time of year – with so many standard sales and offers around – there aren’t typical Argos Voucher Codes and Promo Codes around, however when there are we will release in this section! Take a look at our table for the latest.

So keep your eyes peeled we will update them here and also on our social media channels and via our free newsletter. Have you signed up yet?

5. Argos Free Delivery and Argos Clearance Section

As mentioned above there is FREE DELIVERY on all orders at 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!

So great to get some money saved straight off the bat with their Argos free delivery scheme.

Take a look at our great video below to see all about how students can save in the Argos clearance section. 

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!

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.


Fantastic Facts about the store

Current editions have well over 1600 pages containing photographs of items, brief descriptions, prices and a catalogue number. Store copies are ring-bound and the pages individually laminated.
