1. IS THERE A WHSMITH STUDENT DISCOUNT?
Now there is good news and bad news. It looks like there is a 15% WHSmith student discount but only for art materials and only for those that have an NUS Extra card and are in-store.
We’ve also had a good rummage around the internet and we can’t find a WHSmith student discount for whsmith.co.uk BUT, there are still ways that students can save. The first thing you can do is check out our savings section in this guide. We update this regularly and have the latest WHSmith student codes, sales, deals, offers and if there is a current WHSmith promo code to save you money.
Also, make sure you check out the offers page which lists the best WHSmith sales currently on. They regularly include:
- 3 for 2 Offers
- Price reductions
- Free gifts
There is tons more advice on how to save though, so keep on reading!
2. UNIDAYS WHSMITH
We get asked whether there is a WHSmith student discount through the big student discount schemes in the UK including the NUS Extra, Unidays, Student Beans.
The Student Squirrel has been doing the research so you don’t have to and this is what he’s found.
At this time of writing (June 2020) there is no WHSmith Unidays code. We’ve checked myunidays.com and it’s not listed on there.
Don’t fret though, check out our savings section to see the latest ways that you can save and any available promo codes.
WHSMITH NUS DISCOUNT?
No, we’re a bit confused about the answer to this question. On whsmith.co.uk there is no mention of an NUS WHSmith discount.
However, on nus.org.uk they state that there is 15% off all art materials. We’ve got a sneaking suspicion that this is now out of date but if you have an NUS Extra card and are in-store and are buying art materials then, by all means, show your card and ask for a discount. If you don’t ask…
ARE THERE WHSMITH STUDENT BEANS DISCOUNTS?
Nope, there is no association between Student Beans and WHSmith. 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.GET DISCOUNTS >
The savings don’t stop there though students. Read on to get some more excellent money-saving tips!
3. WH SMITH PROMO CODE, VOUCHERS & DISCOUNTS
Throughout the year WHSmith promo codes and WHSmith vouchers are released. We update any new codes in our savings section at the top of this page so make sure you take a look.
What we love about WH Smith voucher codes is that you don’t need NUS id to prove your student status. They are available to all. You just shop on the site and when you come to the online checkout, just pop in the discount code and you’ll receive your special saving.
It’s saving the easy way, just the way we like it here at Squirrel Towers.

4. WHSMITH SALES
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 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.
BLACK FRIDAY & CYBER MONDAY
As well as having deals on the day, on Black Friday and Cyber Monday WHSmith usually included a voucher code to save £5 off spends over £30, or £10 of spends over £50.
We also saw good savings on stationery, books and tech like Apple Air Pods.
It’s one for the best times of the year for students to save.
BOXING DAY & JANUARY SALES
Another time when you can get the best discounts at WHSmith is the Christmas winter sales. There are initial discounts of up to 50% but later in December they can increase.
However, our tip is if what you want is reduced then buy it there and then as it may sell out and you’re still getting a great deal.
5. WH SMITH – STORE OVERVIEW & BUYERS GUIDE
Now a whopping 225-years old, WHSmith has the experience to know a thing or two about stationery. Alongside this core range of products, they stock books, magazines, music, cards and gifts, computing products and electronics. There’s not much you need as a student that you won’t be able to find either in one of their stores (there’s 600 of them on British high streets and in Universities, and 600 in rail stations, bus stations and airports!) or online through their e-commerce website.
WH Smith is home to a huge range of stationery, which is where the chain’s focus has been historically since it branched out from a humble newsagent. Whether it be notebooks, pens, folders or specialist art supplies, you’ll be able to find them at WH Smith, so they have you covered for all things to do with your uni work. Expanding more to fit consumer’s modern technological tastes, you’ll also be able to find anything extra that you need to go with your laptop or tablet, such as anti-virus software, batteries, and chargers.
Despite their prevalence on campuses across the country and their product range so perfectly tailored to students, there’s no current permanent student discount at WH Smith. Keep checking back here and the team at Student Discount Squirrel will update as soon as we hear of any discounts, offers or sales, we’ll update you!
