2. 7 Ways for Students to Save at USC
Even though there is a USC student discount, we’ve found that there are more ways to save as we’ve been researching this guide.
So this next section shows you how.
1. The USC Sales Page
There is a permanent sales page on usc.co.uk which lists all the latest clothing that has been reduced. In fact they call it ‘The Outlet’. The divide it into Men’s and Women’s sections and then by clothing, shoes and accessories.
When we last had a look we noticed some nice discounts including:
- 50% off tees
- 50% off selected trainers
- Reductions on big brands including Boss, Tommy Hilfiger and Champion
Unfortunately the 10% USC student discount won’t work on sale prices but students will still be getting a good bargain.
2. USC Promo Codes
Throughout the year we have seen that USC release some voucher codes that anybody including students can use.
These have included free delivery, 20% off everything and additional reductions too.
You can’t stack your USC Unidays promo code on top (unless otherwise stated) but the discount can be bigger than the standard 10% so you’re better off using that.
3. Check out the Savings Section in this Guide

This is regularly updated with some of the best offers, sales and deals that USC offer.

Off course you get the latest new lines, fashion tips and exclusive offers too so it’s well worth it.
5. See the Hidden Deals & Offers Page
Did you know that there is a USC deals and offers page.
It’s not available from the home page so it’s a little hidden away buy you can find it here.
The Student Squirrel is good at sniffing out these types of pages!
With a great range of footwear and urban clothing and a student discount, USC is already a great place for you uni goers to get value.
The Student Discount Squirrel says:
“I’ve been doing my research and found that there are bargains to be had at usc.co.uk. I’ve been looking into some of the best and here are my top 3!”
Top Buy: Adidas Duramo Sliders – £16.00 or two for £26.00
THE shoes right now, and easy to slip on and walk off, sliders are everywhere and make for the perfect summer shoe.
These premium sliders come in a range of colours and sizes and the combi-buy promotion makes for a great bargain buy.
They have a cushioned footbed, gripped sole and are branded heavily so everyone knows you’re not wearing knock-offs. The only question is: to sock or not to sock? DOH!
Top Buy: Only Embroidered Heart T-Shirt – £13.99
A plain white tee with cute embroidery design on the breast, this is an easy wardrobe staple that’s more fun than a plain white tee and jazzes up any outfit.
Tuck into a big skirt and wear with heels for an elegant twist, or just pop on with jeans and trainers for an every-day easy ensemble. This tee is 100% cotton, machine washable and lightweight, so makes for a great addition to your wardrobe.
Top Buy: Vera Wang Preppy Princess Perfume, 100ml – £15.00
Vera Wang is an extremely premium brand and so this perfume is a real bargain. You won’t find cheaper!
A limited-edition spin on the Princess perfume range, the top notes of this fragrance are a little fruitier than the original; red berry, apple and tangerine.
This gives a more playful feel to this scent, with base notes of jasmine, coconut, honeysuckle and sandalwood. It lasts all day on the skin and as a 100ml bottle, will keep you going for a while until you need a new perfume… unless you buy two, of course!

About the Store
USC is a fashion retailer found in most big cities across the UK, but short of stopping in occasionally to browse, it seems to go largely unrecognised by most of us. Originally standing for ‘United Sports Corporation’, this Scottish-founded business now focuses less on sportswear and more on fashion – and is one of the hottest stockists of branded fashion on the British high street.
The chain is often underrated and disappeared from many high streets in the last few years as the business underwent a restructure, but it is now firmly back in the black and moving from strength to strength. There are now over 60 stores throughout the country, including a flagship store on Oxford Street and even now a first international store in Belgium, on the infamous Brussels Dock!
A selected stockist of some of the world’s finest fashion labels spanning menswear, womenswear, and children’s wear, the collections in-store and online are what really makes USC. We cover off some, but by no means all, of them here!
German luxury fashion house Hugo Boss are notoriously picky with who they allow to stock their ranges, and USC play home to almost their entire ranges of Hugo, Boss, Boss Orange and Boss Green! Polo Ralph Lauren have also chosen USC as a trusted stockist, and offer regular changes of collections through their stores and website spanning all genders of clothing. Headquartered in New York, the label is still run by Lauren himself and he’s now valued at hundreds of billions of dollars!
For less formal looks, Levi Jeans can be found at USC – a bonus, as their standalone high street stores are few and far between. You’ll also find Quiksilver, Fire Trap, G Star, Calvin Klein and Kangol. And staying true to their sports roots, premium sporting brands including Puma, New Balance, Skecher and Slazenger are all stocked too.
With so few high stores, and their space being limited given the number of labels that USC offers, shopping online is the best way for you to be able to gain access to the full range of fashion designers on offer.
Seasonal sales offer further money-off promotions year-round. Pre-orders can be made for fashion collections that are yet to be released on general sale, and any returns that need to be made can be done so for free. You can also pay by PayPal through the USC website: so if you’ve managed to make some extra cash online through eBay or other online sales sites, this could be the place to spend it!
If you’re a label junkie, USC is the shopping destination for you, both online and off. You won’t find a better or more comprehensive fashion house range anywhere else.
History of the Brand
USC started life in Edinburgh as a single sportswear store in 1989. It stocked third party brands, but only spanning sportswear and leisurewear, and continued on largely as it was without vast growth or business development until 2004, when it was purchased by Sir Tom Hunter.
Within four years of the purchase, the firm went into administration but was bought again to save it. In 2011, the entire chain was sold to Sports Direct, owned by Mike Ashley, who already had good experience in managing a rapidly-expanding sportswear brand business. Ashley also bought the fashion retailer Republic to stop them going under, and merged the two. Many stores were closed over this period, and it was these closures that saw many consumers lose faith or forget who USC were.
However, by 2015, things were chequered again for USC. Media reports were that Ashley was preparing to place the brand into administration. The administrators restructured the business to streamline it and avoid further losses, and things began to look positive again. The brand portfolio expanded vastly, and fashion labels began to flock back to USC, helping the business grow and develop.

6. Get Free Delivery
Unfortunately the standard delivery fee for USC is £4.99. It is even the same for click and collect.
We found this relatively high when compared to similar retailers.
However, there are sometimes free delivery USC promo codes released.
Check out our savings section at the top of the page to see if there are any current ones available.
7. Shop in a Big Sale for Biggest Discounts
One of the best and biggest ways to save at USC is when there is a big sale on.
These happen at regular times throughout the year and have the biggest discounts. The main ones are:
- Black Friday & Cyber Monday
- Christmas and January Sales – up to 50% Off
- Spring & Easter Sales
- Summer Sales
There are also mid-season sales that occur which also see some good reductions. We list the latest sales alerts in our savings section at the top of the page.
It’s also worth taking a look at the Outlet page on USC as this is a permanent page which lists all the discounted clothing, trainers and accessories.
Remember that unfortunately the USC student discount code doesn’t work on sales items.
