I'm not sure if I am the only one who has ever noticed but unfortunately there seems to be a huge gap between students and Military personnel.

For example, my brother-in-law has a student I.D card that he uses for nearly everything you can think of. Whether it's buying a pair of trainers or signing up for Amazon Prime, he seems to get discounts on everything.

A few years ago we all went out for an all you can eat Chinese in Southampton and at the end of the meal we asked if Military Discount was available and to surprise, they said no. He then piped up with his student I.D card and got a huge 25% off the meal.

My argument or point of this topic is: how can a business choose to offer a discount on one, but not the other. I've heard people say before that it's mainly because Uni students are typically always skint and they attract a more acceptable crowd.

 

Your thoughts?

I think it is slowly changing, I've been using  https://www.defencediscountservice.co.uk/ for a year or so now. Its £5 for 5 years and they seem to be adding different companies to it daily. Well worth a look but I agree students do seem to get a lot more.
