Halfords Sales Diary

As there are no student discounts, the biggest savings that students can make is when there is a big sale on. We keep our squirrel eyes open so any sales will be in our fabulous savings section. Take a look and see how much you can save.

The Squirrel has a top saving tip:

“The biggest sales happen around the same time each year. Check the dates below as if one if coming up it might be best to hold on.”

Halfords Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Halfords takes part in the Black Friday sales which take place around the last Friday in November.

There have been some excellent discounts on Black Friday on commuter cycles which are perfect for getting to campus or mountain bikes if you want the option to go off-road. Look out for a valid voucher code released around this time, especially as they don’t have a Halfords student discount.

Boxing Day and Halford January Sales

The Halfords Boxing Day sales are a key time for the company and they have some great discounts, deals and offers available. We have it under good authority that they now commence online at halfords.com on 24th December, when the shipping deadline for Christmas presents has passed.

The sales then continue well into January, with extra reductions being made. Careful though, if you see something discounted earlier on that you really want then get it as stock can run out!

Don’t forget that Halfords run promotions throughout the year that you can make great savings at. Check out the savings section for the latest deals, promo codes and discounts.

Halfords Store Overview, Wiki and Buyers Guide

Halfords is a British and Irish retailer of car parts, car enhancement, bike and bike accessories, and camping and touring equipment. Unless you’re a bit of a petrolhead, you may not visit a Halfords often; but there’s lots of practical equipment within and it’s a firm favourite amongst savvy Student Discount Squirrel shoppers!

If you’re a cyclist or driver, Halfords is a must-visit store: not just for its range of parts and enhancements, but also because of the advice and recommendations that staff at Halfords offer.

Highly trained and able to not just converse with you but also to fit parts and practical solutions, Halfords is the place to go even if you’re not sure of what you need or how to fit it.

Their staff will do everything from tightening nuts and bolts, clipping on new windscreen wipers and in some cases full auto-centre services such as MOTs and mechanic repairs – the in-store experience is exceptional. This range of servicing means that you don’t need to book in with an expensive mechanic or specialist cycle repair shop and instead, can have your motor and bike needs sorting on the high street.

You don’t need to be a pro-cyclist to use their cycle facilities, either. Even fair-weather, hire-only or super casual cyclists will feel at home here as the staff can help with everything from chain repairs to major structural bodywork. Many of their staff themselves cycle to work, so they’ll feel your pain on rain, angry motorists and frustrating bike niggles!

This cycle superstore also attracts lots of seasonal custom as summer hits and everyone plans ahead for festival season. Their range of fantastic value tents varies from cheap one-man pop-ups to huge tent villages… just make sure you’ve got some extra pegs and lots of willing volunteers to help with the latter when you make it on-site!

You’ll also find festival essentials such as:

  • cool boxes
  • camp chairs
  • sat nav options
  • sleeping bags
  • camp beds
  • marquees
  • gas stoves

All of which we here at SD Squirrel heartily endorse for cheap getaways and to stop you from spending all your hard-earned cash on ridiculously priced eats at festival food outlets.

To make their shopping experience even better (both in store and online), Halfords are super student-friendly and offer not just a student discount but a whole student membership and loyalty programme!

Sign up through Student Discount Squirrel to receive a discount, invites to and advance notice of lots of seasonal promotional events and money-off sales and specially discounted selected products.

If you’re in-store, just ask; many Halfords staff are students themselves and you’ll never feel frowned upon for seeking out a bargain with them. They really are a great example of how retailers can – and should! – help out, skint students. If you want to know more about Halfords then check out our information page.
