Student Discounts in Exeter

Being a student in Exeter means there’s no shortage of juicy discounts and deals to keep you going throughout your studies. Whether it’s budgeting for food and study supplies, or hanging with your mates on a weekend trip, these hidden beauties will see you do all that and more.

As well as a standard NUS card, students in the UK can also get their hands on the Student Card UK card (£10 for three years) and the Student Advantage card (free for one year, £5 for two, £7 for three). Both of these are excellent value for money and will nab you a whole host of bargains across countless brands, so our advice is to get at least one if you want to live up the next three years for all they’re worth!

Food & Drink

With your NUS card, you’ll get 40% off leading chains like Pizza Express, ASK Italian, Zizzi’s, as well as 20% at Frankie & Benny’s and even 10% off at your local Co-operative for those weekly essentials!

With the Student Card UK though, you’ll also be able to nab 50% off your Domino’s Pizza order (when spending £25 or more); 25% off at Thai Orchid and Momospice; 30% at Bombay Bill’s and buy-one-get-one-free offers on pizza and pasta at Bar Venezia. Phew, that’s a lot of food! When eating out is this affordable, who wouldn’t want to make the most of it?

Shopping/Retail

Again, with a valid NUS card, Exeter students can get any number of discounts on food, fashion and beauty products (online and in-store). However, with the Student Card UK you can get some amazing extras, such as the ones listed below.

The Body Shop – £5 off
Plain Lazy – 20% off

Leisure/Recreation

Every student needs a bit of R&R, and shouldn’t have to break the bank to get it. Luckily, these vendors have made it so much easier to get a little fun in in between lectures, along with Student Card UK.

Crackshot Paintball – 15% off
Exeter Picturehouse –Half price tickets and drink offers on Mondays
Raceworld Karting – 10% off
Visible Changes Hair & Beauty – 40% off your first visit (get a fresh look for Fresher’s Week!)

Meanwhile, the Student Advantage card will get you 10% discounts at Supercuts and Restyle Barber’s, so you can stay looking groomed for a fraction of the cost.

Extra Savings

For even more discounts on a wide range of major brands, be sure to check out UniDays. It’s completely free to sign up and will generate promo codes for your favourite go-tos, available to students of any uni and any city.
