Top Student Discounts UK


From student laptops and tablets through to jewellery, phones and funky furniture for your student digs, Argos has it all and Argos delivers. Literally!

Argos already offers fantastic standard prices and often has seasonal reductions, they, therefore, don’t offer a standard official Argos discount code (although this changes from time to time). HOWEVER, fear not, we have squirrelly ways to get further discounts and save money.

Check out our special Argos student discount guide here which shows you clever ways to save at Argos. So here are our top Argos Discounts

So, whip out that trusty Argos catalogue or get online today, order and wait for it to arrive. What could be easier? Even though we have heard there is no longer a catalogue

I love Argos but I’m gutted the iconic catalogue is going – I loved that thing.


House of Fraser has a fantastic range of quality fashion brands, from Lacoste to Lyle and Scott, Michael Kors to Moschino, you’ll find it all here.

Now (we’ll be honest) we used to think that House of Fraser was a bit old fashioned and one for the grannies… how we were wrong!

The Big Brand Sale blows us away every single year… and between you and us, it’s on most of the time. Another top tip is that they also offer free delivery once you order over £50 which is easily achievable, especially if a couple of you and your friends order some stuff together.

This makes House of Fraser one of the most popular choices for outfits for summer and Christmas balls and big graduations – think that prom dress. It also just offers brilliant brands at low prices. At Student Discount Squirrel we promise you the prices here are lower than the high street store, so jump to it and save today.

What Makes a Good Student Discount and How Can I Take Advantage of Them?

Obviously, any form of discount or sale is only valuable if it’s off something worthwhile and something you want!

Just because an item is in a sale doesn’t mean it’s good – shock horror! Often retailers will reduce items that aren’t popular or selling – so ask yourself – “why is it in a sale or discounted”? Do I need it? If you do, then check out the best ways to save money. Our site updates offers and promotional codes from hundreds of shops and stores every month so make us a go-to.

For some of the discounts listed above and with student discounts, you will often need a valid student discount card. For some of them, you may need to be affiliated through schemes such as student beans or the NUS Extra scheme – these are excellent organisations so do check them out as well.

Our site will also list the best deals we can find to make your student money go further. I’m a busy squirrel. I don’t just eat nuts, party and go to lectures you know!
