Now that all the new students have hopefully lodged their loans or grants in to their new student bank accounts – the shops are trying to make them spend some of that money on clothes.
For the men – Burtons are offering a 15% discount in their online shop if you register on this page. They ask for a student ID number – but it doesn’t get checked. This offer – they say – is limited but no end date is given. The discount is applicable even on clothes in the sale.
For the ladies – Dorothy Perkins also are giving 15% discount on all items online. Just register your student details (wink,wink) on this page and your shopping basket will get 15% knocked off. (Expires Oct 11th 2009)
If you want to go to a real shop and you have a real student ID – then Dorothy Perkins say they will give a 15% discount in store too. No voucher or code is required.
(The prices are probably cheaper online though because of the weak sterling excange rate – back to around 90p to the Euro today)
Both of these online shops deliver to Ireland for the same price as delivery in the UK – which is rare.
I believe there are a lot more mature students these days …… : )
