    Could we have a student discount thread stickied and everyone can post where their student card has got them discounts or where we can ask about student discounts? Please. :)

    I've gotten discounts in Topshop, NewLook, HMV and Dorothy Perkins. You can also get student haircuts at PeterMarks.

    These are replies to the student discount thread in Bargain Alerts.

    5% off in GameStop - 10% off in Heatons

    10% discount in zavvi. You need a valid student card and you have to register in store. Only takes 5 mins though

    10% in HMV (they'll give you their own student card when you show your normal one)

    10% in Schuh

    Most cinemas give a discount too.

    10% off in Arnotts Jervis Centre branch for students. It's their new premises, lots of nice things there.

    Do Irish student cards work in the UK for getting discounts?

    Almost every place do student discounts now but most of the places don't advertise that fact, if you are not shy chance your luck everywhere but there are also great sites that tell you where, some though you have to buy a card like usit and VIP card but there are others like student deals and student smart that are free... I never pay full price and I'm sure I've saved hundreds over the years :-)

    Hughes and Hughes give a 20% discount...well at least in Cork airport anyway - but I think they're pretty much the same across the board (and they do have an ordering system in the airport store). Iused to work there :rolleyes: Those were the days!

    That's a brilliant discount, 20% is alot for a book store... I was gutted last week when a friend told me they saved a fortune on driving lessons through studentsmart website, I paid full wack for 7 of them few months ago, didn't even think to ask about a student discount :mad:

    Looks like HMV are doing away with their 10% student discount,I heard they should be some kind of reward card to replace it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,803 ✭✭✭El Siglo

    Mother Reilly's on Upper Rathmines Road does a student discount, all pints are €3.50 when you show them a student card (any student card, not just the travel one).

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,791 ✭✭✭electrogrimey

    Londis have 10% off, and when you're getting roll for €1.77 you can't ask for more than that.

    hey guys students can get education discounts from apple from their online store..

    if your in UCC, DIT, UCD, TRINITY, NCAD, DCU.

    if your not , DIT.IE and search 'apple' its unsecured so theres no login way of telling if your a student or not!

    Domino's have a 12% student discount but it's not applicable to any of the deals, so basically only if you're getting a pizza on it's own.

    Do many of the discounts mentioned still apply. Or is just a matter of asking
