Kingston has a wide variety of stores that offer great value discounts to students. From luxury beauty items to products from local supermarkets, you can find discounted prices. Here is a round up of the best value loyalty schemes and student discounts within Kingston.


Boots offers a 10% discount for all students that sign up to their beauty card in store. You get 10% off all products and can earn points through purchasing other items. One point equals one penny. September is the prime time to take full advantage of the Boots card as they offer 20% for all students that month. 


The beauty card offers discounted rates on selected items, with an additional 10% on top with their student discount.  If you accidentally forget your student id but need the item urgently, you are able to use the 10% discount online through Student Beans app. The 10% discount is applied onto all their products and to access a beauty card, all you need to do is sign up in store or on the app. 


Fenwick is the best place to find a payday treat as it offers students a 10% discount, on a majority of luxury products. You don’t need to sign up to activate the discount, all you need is to show your student id at the till to access discounted prices on premium perfume, clothes, jewellery and much more. If the product you want is not in store but online, you can still access the discount through copying the unique code given on Unidays. The student discount can only be applied on full price items and not sale. 


If you’re looking to find the latest trending shoes for a great value price, Schuh offers 10% off for students. This offer varies depending on what brands accept the 10% discount on their full price and sale items . If you’re unsure, ask a member of staff as they can offer more detail about their discount policy. You don’t need to sign up to a loyalty scheme, all you need is your student id to confirm your university status. 


The Nectar card is a great way to achieve money off your food shop. Every pound spent equals one point. When you achieve 500 points you are able to get £2.50 off and this will increase by £2.50 every 500 points achieved. The Nectar card caters to your shop as well, sending you discounted rates on selected items you regularly purchase.
