Student Discounts In Stirling

stirling castle

One thing that seems to be universally true of students is that they are always a bit strapped for cash.

Suddenly having to think about costs like accommodation, food, travel, course materials, and all the other things that go along with being in university can be stressful. The great news, though, is that one of the perks of being a student is all the discounts available to you! Many businesses across the UK offer discounts to students, and the National Union of Students (NUS) offers a discount card that can save students money at many retailers. There are many discounts to be had simply by presenting this card, but even merchants who don’t participate in the NUS scheme may offer discounts if you present a valid, in-date student ID. Where, in Stirling, can you capitalize on these discounts? There are several different options, in a wide array of categories. Be aware that some terms and conditions may apply, and it is always wise to check with the shop before expecting the discount. On the other hand, there are probably stores that are not on this list that offer discounts- it never hurts to ask!
