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 (January 2021) there is no WHSmith Unidays code. We’ve checked 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.


No, we’re a bit confused about the answer to this question. On there is no mention of an NUS WHSmith discount.

However, on 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 We’ve got a sneaking suspicion that this is now out of date but if you have an NUS Extra card and are in-store and are buying art materials then, by all means, show your card and ask for a discount.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…


Nope, there is no association between Student Beans and WH Smith. Usually, you would be able to get a unique student WHSmith discount code to use at the online check-out but there is none.

Make sure though that you do check out the WH smith offers page though as all the deals should be located there.

Another time when you can get the best discounts at WH Smith 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.


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.

WH Smith are fab – they often have 3 for 2 sales on stationary in store… always worth looking out for!

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!

Whether you have a WH Smith on your campus, down your nearest high street or in your local station, there’s no doubt that you know the brand already: but are you taking full advantage of having this one-stop-stationery-shop on your doorstep? You should!



As we’ve seen previously, there is no WHSmith student discount. Therefore there is no WH Smith Unidays code, or one with NUS Totum or Student Beans either.

However, it doesn’t mean that you still can’t save. Look out for sales, deals and voucher codes which you can use to get discounts and save students money.
