2. Is there a Burton UNIDAYS, NUS or Student Beans discount?

As the student discount market is quite dispersed in the UK it can be confusing to find out exactly what student discounts avid learners are entitled to.

The 3 biggest students discounts websites are NUS, UNiDAYS and Student Beans and each of them have a different offering.

We get asked a lot whether there is a Burton student discount through these schemes so we’ve done some extensive researching so we can answer your questions properly!

The Burton Unidays Discount

So the good news is that there is a Burton UNiDAYS student discount. To get it you need go to this page on adidas.co.uk, put your awesome football boots, trainers or sports clothing in your basket, then get verified with UNiDAYS are you’ll be issued with a student voucher code to enter at the checkout and bob’s your uncle you’ll get a terrific 15% reduction on all full priced items.

Burton NUS Discount?

So this is a tad confusing so bear with us. There is no NUS Burton scheme at the moment for students to save. This includes not being included in the NUS Extra card scheme.

HOWEVER, NUS students can still get an Burton discount through the UNiDAYS scheme and get the voucher.

Read the first section for full details on how to get it.

Plus make sure you check out our savings section to see the latest ways that you can save and any available promo codes that could save you even more.

Are there Student Beans Discounts?

Nope, there is no association between Student Beans and Burton. This would make things easier for students, but you can still get the 10% promo code for free through UNiDAYS.

Burtons Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Burtons like to go big on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and usually release a voucher code to get 30% off everything.

This is double the normal student discount so is really worth waiting for!!!

Boxing Day & Burton Menswear January Sales

There are some big sales on around Christmas. Usually they start a couple of days before the 25th, then on Boxing Day there are further reductions and even bigger ones nearer New Year and January.

We recommend that if there is something you want then get it as soon as it’s in the sale as it might sell out.

Spring Mid-season & Easter Sales

Around mid March Burtons have a mid-season sale and also something for Easter too.

We’ve found that they have a good 50% sale on selected items, and then add additional discounts of 20% on sale items so you can get up to 70% off. This is one of THE best times for students to bag a bargain.

Big Summer Sale

Around the end of July there is a huge sale with big discounts off  spring/summer mens fashion at Burton.

We’ve seen discounts of up to 70% and you can still use your student discount code on top.

Burton Black Leather Watch – £29.50

A classic shape and style, this black watch is an instant hit and looks considerably more expensive than it is.

The strap is actually leather-look rather than leather (so no animal cruelty concerns here) and the face is silver-coloured that won’t rust or fade. Every man needs a basic watch, and this one is perfect for both formal and informal occasions alike.

Formal Suit Hire, 2-day try-on period – FREE!

Burton stores all offer hire services for formal suits and occasion wear so that you don’t need to fork out the full amount to purchase an outfit that you’ll only ever wear once.

Store staff will even size you up so everything fits just right, and unlike other suit companies, Burton give you a full two days to try and wear the items at home to decide whether or not they fit the occasion the way you’d like them to (perfect for weddings and other big events where you need to compare your outfits to others).

Navy and White Raglan T-Shirt – £10.00

A wardrobe staple for all men, this long sleeve crew neck tee its for everyday errand running and lecture attendance but can be dressed up with tailored jeans and premium trainers for a smarter feel.

It’s 100% cotton and machine washable for easy maintenance. This is a great cheap buy for every man’s t-shirt drawer!

6. Summary & History of the Brand

Through shopping during sales to using promo codes, there are some clever ways for pupils to get fashion for cheaper.

We wish you luck and let us know how you get on.

History of the Brand

Burton Menswear London is a 115-year-old menswear and suit retailer that now features on almost every high street across the UK.

Part of the Arcadia Group, who also manage the likes of Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins and Ms Selfridge, now has over 400 stores across the country and is well reputed as a must-visit when shopping for guy’s clothing.

Burton has such a reputation for design and aesthetics that when the business started expanding, it hired an architect to ensure its exterior building and interior store design was consistent across all sites and really made a distinction between it and its competitors.

These stores, where designed externally, were art deco in style and all looked broadly the same – with large non-retail rooms available upstairs for billiard halls, black fascia for signage, industrial-style metal grates and tiles spelling out the store name around the door.

Many of the stones laid for these first stores were done by the Burton family, and several still exist today.

Some of these locations are protected by preservation orders in both England and Scotland so remain in place today, even if they’re not still used as Burton retail stores.

Today, Burton is considered a premium high street menswear retailer. Their current range includes suits and suit/occasion wear hire, smart casual clothing (think chinos and smarter t-shirts over ripped denim and logo tees), shoes and accessories.

The price points are reasonable rather than luxury, and their sales and clearance events throw up some real bargains that put them firmly in the Student Discount Squirrel favourites category! It’s preppy and smart tailoring with a casual price tag.

There are over 400 Burton shops in the UK and numerous more worldwide, but if there isn’t a store near you, their website offers their whole range as well as some online exclusives and a clearance section that offers discounted rates on items unsold in stores.

What’s more, there’s a 10% Student Discount as standard and a further 15% code available if you sign up to their email newsletter.

If you’re not sure about a purchase, you can choose to ‘try it and pay later’, giving you up to 30 days to model the items at home before you have to pay for them, or return them (for free!).

There’s not a credit agreement in place, but you can also choose to ‘slice’ your payment on orders over £60 and spread out the cost across three instalments so that it’s more affordable for you. This customer-friendly option makes buying pricier items such as formalwear easier.

Burton’s range of payment options and their frequent sales make them a discount and student-friendly retailer, and one you can easily nip into a store of should shopping online not be your thing.
