2. Is there a TK Maxx NUS, Unidays or Student Beans discount?
There are 3 big student discount schemes in the UK: NUS, Unidays, Student Beans.
We get asked a lot whether there is a TK Maxx student discount through these schemes so while you’ve been to lectures (or down the union pub, ahem) the Squirrel has been doing the researching. And the results are in.
TK Maxx NUS Discount?
There is no NUS TK Maxx scheme at the moment for students to save. This includes not being included in the NUS Extra card scheme.
Usually this would be listed on the nus.org but there is no entry there.
TK Maxx & Unidays?
At this time of writing (April 2018) there is no tie in with Unidays.
Not to worry though, check out our savings section to see the latest ways that you can save and any available promo codes.
Are there TK Maxx Student Beans Discounts?
Nope, there is no association between Student Beans and TK Maxx.
Usually you would be able to get a unique student discount code to use at the online check-out but there is none.
Make sure though that you do check out the offers page though as all the deals should be located there.

5. Store Overview & Buyers Guide
Whether you know it as TK Maxx, TJ Maxx or TJX, you’ll understand that TK Maxx is the undisputed home of designer clothing bargains at its well-stocked (and often a little overwhelming) stores.
If you appreciate the quality of a designer label but don’t have the appetite, or the funds, to splash the cash on couture, TK Maxx is the shop for you. A self-proclaimed ‘off-price’ retailer, the chain doesn’t indulge in sales, special offers or promotional prices; instead buying up designer clothing, accessories and homeware cheaply where it can and selling this onward for up to 60% less than its intended RRP (Recommended Retail Price). A common misconception is that TK Maxx are a designer outlet store, but this isn’t quite right; as they stock a huge range of brands and never limit themselves to a certain sector or collection.
TK Maxx’s business model works by entrusting their Buyers around the world with full entrepreneurship; the ability to select beautiful and bold items they love, the freedom to negotiate great deals on them and the opportunity to import them into the UK to hit the shelves of a store near you. This unique approach allows the chain to stock a brilliant variety of brands and items year-round, rather than waiting for seasonal collections to be released and then selling them alongside everyone else when they’re allowed to. However, this sales method does mean that there’s no stock replenishment: once it’s gone, it’s gone, so if you see something you like, you need to snap it up right away as it’s unlikely to be in-store again.
Whilst you can buy many of TK Maxx’s available ranges online, their stores are designed specially to accommodate their ever-evolving product collections, with no defined barriers or walls between departments – allowing shops to continually move around their items to fit in. It does mean, however, that you’ll need to double check whereabouts you’re headed in the shop, as things move around a lot!
It’s often thought that TK Maxx can be a bit wasteful; buying up out-of-season clothing, not displaying them in the traditional way for sale, and heavily discounting their prices can give the impression that the chain is trying desperately to get rid of stock. However, this really isn’t the case. It’s just the way they work! TK Maxx is an ethical and socially responsible business. Having raised over £32m for Cancer Research UK, you can donate old clothing to the charity through their bricks-and-mortar stores and the brand often stock charity merchandise for causes such as Comic Relief and Sports Relief. Sure, TK Maxx isn’t your standard traditional designer label shopping experience – but it offers much more and is worth investigating if you’re a dedicated bargain hunter looking for a great buy. Student Discount Squirrel (or should that be Student Designer Squirrel?) firmly approves!
Top Student Buy: Kurt Geiger Black Flat Aviator Sunglasses – £14.99
Accessory designer Kurt Geiger is by no means a budget brand label, so you’re bagging a real bargain with these discounted shades! The classic aviator shape of sunglasses is aimed at women but are essentially unisex for wear and the quality and finish is exactly what you’d expect from a couture fashion house. A case is included for safe-keeping when they’re not on your nose, to best protect the thick black rims, 55mm lenses and narrow silver tone arms. A wardrobe staple, these sunnies will see you through this summer and beyond.
Top Student Buy: Bench Black Multi Waistband Hipster Briefs – £14.99
Good pants are worth their weight in gold, for both washing and aesthetic reasons… so if you can buy designer briefs at high street prices, it’s really win-win. This three-pack of pants comes in at under £15 and is available in a variety of sizes, styles and colours to suit all. Machine washable and made of 95% cotton for comfort (the other 5% is elastane for the nice gentle stretch you’d expect), this underwear set offers high quality and easy maintenance – and they’re easily recognisable as yours in a load of mixed washing!
Top Student Buy: Isaac Jacobs Gold Tone Cosmetics Organiser – £14.99
This cosmetics organiser is a must-have whether or not you use a great deal of make-up or bathroom products – so listen up! A few days into having to share your university bathroom, you’ll quickly realise that nothing is sacred and there’s a frustrating cycle set firmly in place for the next few years of losing bathroom essentials and then quickly realising that one of your housemates has used them. This purchase organises everything bathroom-related neatly and makes it immediately obvious when something is missing or running low. You’ll never lose a tube of toothpaste, bottle of shampoo or earring again.
History of the Company
TJ Maxx, the American version of the designer store we’ve come to know and love, was founded in 1976 by Bernard Cammarata in Massachusetts, USA, buying up a small chain of discount household item shops.
The chain grew in popularity and quickly launched around the globe, but under several different monikers – including TK Maxx in the UK and Ireland, to avoid confusion with the already well-established high-street chain TJ Hughes. It wasn’t until 2009 that the online store was launched and from here TK Maxx took a stand with heavy television advertising and expansion of its stores throughout the UK to better establish itself as a household name. Indeed, at the same time, TJ Hughes declined in popularity and decreased its high street presence from 57 shops to just 20.
Now, you’ll find branches of TK Maxx, or one of its other similar names, worldwide in territories including the UK, USA, Canada, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany and Australia. The chain continues to grow from strength to strength as consumer expectations demand continually high quality at low prices, and their e-commerce offering expands its delivery services globally.
