Student ID card. Do i get discounts?

I’m still in high school but go to college ounce a week to study GCSE Law. I have been given a student ID card with: My Name, Picture, Age, College, Year when I turn 18, Expiry date and a bar code….
Is this card just for college as a student Identity Card. Or can I use it in shops to get discounts.
When trying to find info on this i found that alot of websites were trying to sell student discount cards. Is this something i need to buy, or can i use this card. Please help, quite confused. xx

    I can get discounts with the student card i got from my college…You should try using it in shops to see if they will give a discount…

    Yes yes yes – loads of places offer student discounts. Just use the card you have been given!

    And wherever you shop. ASK!!

    Yeah some restaurants have specials for college students just ask them, they’ll just want to see your ID if they have any.

    In some shops you can get 10% off with a valid student ID card I know New Look does this but ask around. Hope this helped.

    By the sounds of it you’re from the US so I don’t know if it’s the same as here (UK).
    Generally, the student card you have now will get you discount in a few shops, cinema’s, buses etc. However some need an NUS card, which you need to buy (here it’s about £11- $15ish?).

    Regardless, it’s definitely worth just asking whenever you go shopping. Even if they say no, atleast you’ve tried!

    Hope this helps.

    Depends on the shops. Your card will work in the cinema because it has your date of birth on it but for discounts in shops generally you’ll need an NUS Card because it’s the universal card recognised by all shops. It’s a one off payment of £10 – just type it in on google 🙂
