To get the discount you’ll need to activate it first by showing your NUS card, university or college ID as well as your Advantage Card at the store till before you pay.

This will then remain active for the duration of the offer.

If you’re not already an Advantage Card holder, you can apply for the card in store and online.

If you apply in store, you’ll receive a one-off 10 per cent discount to be used in stores that day only.

Once you receive your permanent Advantage Card through the post, your discount will need to be activated on your card in store.

The student discount can’t be applied retrospectively so you have to show your Advantage Card every time you shop to get the 10 per cent discount.

Boots has almost 2,500 stores across the UK. To find your nearest one, use the retailer’s store locator here.

Of if you prefer shopping online at, you should visit, where you’ll be given a unique discount code to add to your order before you pay.

The student discount at Boots is not available on NHS prescriptions, infant milks, mobile phone top-up cards, postage stamps, Boots insurance (excluding travel insurance), Travel Services, Boots Opticians, gift boxes as well as delivery charges for orders made online.

Last year, online fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing faced a furious backlash from loyal customers after it slashed its 30 per cent student discount.

Fashion shop Boohoo was also branded “sexist” by a student for offering women discounts during the World Cup.

But there are ways to get a student discount even if you’re not at university – here’s how.
