1. Is There a Wilko Student Discount?

At this time there is no Wilko student discount.

That’s a shame but never fear, the trusty Squirrel is here to show you that it is still possible to save students on your Wilko purchases.

The first thing you must do is check out our savings section. 

This is at the top of the page and is chocked full of the latest  Wilko promo codes, sales, deals; basically anything that can put money in your pocket for that Saturday night out.

Did you know about the offers page on wilko.com. It has all the latest deals and you can even order to click and collect for free which is a nice added bonus.

Next, we deal with promo codes.

2. Is There a Unidays Wilko or NUS Discount?

NUS, Unidays, Student Beans; these are the 3 big student discount schemes in the UK. We get asked a lot whether there is a Wilko student discount through these schemes.

So while you’ve been revising the Squirrel has been doing the hard graft and researching. And the results are in.

Wilkos & Unidays?

At this time of writing 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.

Wilkos NUS Discount?

There is no NUS 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.

Are there Student Beans Discounts?

Nope, there is no association between Student Beans and Wilko.

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.

3. Wilko Promo Codes, Vouchers & Discounts

So unfortunately there isn’t a Wilko student discount NUS code, but there are short term promo codes that this fantastic card maker releases every so often. Take a look at our savings section which will list them all there.

The great thing about the 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.

Easy peasy, just the way we like it here at Squirrel Towers.

Bic Cristal Fun Ballpoint Pens, Assorted Colours 10-pack – £1.25

Make revision and note taking a doddle with these coloured biros that will stand out from your standard blue, black and red writing.

They’re intended to be a touch of fun in pink, purple, turquoise and lime green, but actually, these unusual shades make for the perfect note taking touch to help key stats, words and points stand out amongst your normal work and help you remember them easier.

These pens are standard biro size and quality, and there’s several of each colour so you won’t lose them all at once.

A heavily scented candle with a vibrant, exotic and bright fragrance, this candle is the ideal accompaniment to a student room as it will cut through any unpleasant odours that are, unfortunately, all too common in shared homes.

Reminiscent of summery and tropical holidays abroad, you can breathe easy around this scent and will find it spreads out amongst your rooms, quickly and easily covering anything else up.

Wilko Tropical Plastic Tumbler with Straw – £3.00

A must-have for any outdoor events, picnics or parties, this tumbler comes with a screw-top lid for you to fill with your own desired drink – without the risk of anyone else being able to play with your beverage.

Available in two tropical prints, it matches other al-fresco dining items and won’t spill when you’re out and about.

This tumbler is hand wash only and should only be used to contain cold or room-temperature liquids.

6. Summary & More About The Store

So there you have it. Even though there is no Wilkos student discount, we’ve shown you some excellent ways that students can still save.

Whether it’s having a look at the special offers pages on wilko.com, getting a promo code or shopping savvy in a big sale, you can still bag a bargain on some already well priced stationary, home products and wares.

More About The Store

Whatever it is that you’re looking for to go in your student home or flat, Wilko probably have it – and at a great price, too!

Wilko seem to have sprung up across British high streets after a few years’ absence, and you may remember the red-logo’d Wilkinson Hardware Stores from childhood.

These stores have been re-branded and, in many cases, re-positioned in an effort to modernise the chain and move its emphasis from hardware and DIY more to homewares.

The current Wilko product range includes homewares, DIY materials, textiles, cleaning products, kitchen and bathroom goods, health and beauty products, stationery, pet products and confectionery, as well as some basic groceries.

Seasonal departments offer occasional and relevant seasonal products, including toys and games for Christmas and garden-ware throughout the summer. Most are Wilko’s own brand items, with other high street labels available throughout.

Wilko is a budget priced retailer, so it’s earnt lots of brownie points with Student Discount Squirrel! The brand saves money in numerous ways, such as re-fitting existing retail shops rather than purchasing new premises, advertising only in market-relevant publications, and investing in product development for basic lines rather than premium products.

It can be frustrating to be limited with what you can do when decorating a student flat; both in terms of the money you have to splash on it all and the actual things you’re permitted to do the property. Wilko makes it easy to tidy everything and implement a theme without breaking the bank or the walls, though, instead introducing colour accents and easy temporary decorations that can change with the semester, season or student within.

The small furniture items alongside household essentials make for easy personalisation of your university room, and there’s all the supplies (OK, bar the booze!) you’ll need for parties and get togethers too.

Wilko stores can be found on the high streets of most British towns and cities, but if you don’t have one near you (or would prefer home delivery for easy transportation), their website offers a great range of delivery options.

There’s not currently a student discount as standard for Wilko, but the business claims this allows them to offer the same great low prices to everyone, no matter their educational background or qualifications. To be honest, with prices this low, you may not notice another discount anyway!

If you’re looking for anything at all for your student room or home, Student Discount Squirrel always recommends checking out Wilko for some great value products and deals.
