– My favourite discount has to be the one I get at the cinema. Puts a smile on my face, that’s for sure. It only costs me £5 for a cinema ticket at Empire, cinema. =-D
– But I shouldn’t miss out all the discounts I get at Monsoon Accessorise, New Look, La Senza, Miss Selfridge, Warehouse, Claire’s, Oasis, Austin Reed, Matalan, Lipsy, Bench, Coast and Office. Some shops offer up to 25% off all products.
-Now, here’s some restaurants and takeaway places that give out discounts — McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Frankie and Benny’s, Pizza Express and Domino’s. I personally was surprised that McDonald’s gave out a discount, considering it’s so cheap. But hey, I’m not complaining! =-D
– And then for all you folks out there, who like your Gaming products — head over to Game for 5% off all software.
But it’s not all roses and butterflies though — I’m constantly moaning like Victor Meldrew from One Foot in the Grave about the scrooges out there who don’t do discounts or take advantage of the fact that students have to get to uni or college before 9am.
-Like Scotrail who charge me a ridiculous £5 from traveling for 8 miles on the train, just because I’m 19 and I’m traveling before 9am. What a complete and utter rip-off.
Yep, you read correctly — to get a discount from Scotrail I have to be a full time volunteer. They don’t give discounts to students who are over 19.
Then there’s shops who don’t give out discounts to students — HMV are one who used to give out discounts to students and have suddenly stopped. They also don’t refund any purchases, any more, instead they give you a HMV giftcard. What a bunch of utter meanies!
If you have any updates on any other places that don’t do student discounts and who you think should, then please comment. Or if you’d like to comment about something else, then please do. Thank you for reading. =-D
