iPhone app digitizes student ID, informs UK students of deals and discounts

Student Beans ID is a new iOS app designed for college students seeking to use their campus ID for student discounts. The app acts as a digital student ID, enabling users to discover and access thousands of student discounts in and around campus.

Students simply flash a verified Student Beans ID on their smart phone to prove student status to receive the discounts. Students can also use the app to discover local bars, restaurants and other student-friendly gems, with the locations displayed on a map or in a list. The app is free to use and promises no in-app advertisements.

Student Beans is a university lifestyle brand. The app is free to download and offers an alternative to traditional student discount cards that can cost up to £10. Students can claim discounts in shops, restaurants and entertainment venues as well as discover new locations offering student discounts in their local area. The app displays redeem codes directly on the phone’s screen, for the student to use in the store or restaurant.

The app, which is available on the Apple App Store, has amassed more than 5,000 discount venues across the UK, spanning both national chains and local businesses including Jack Wills, Zizzi, French Connection, La Tasca, Cineworld, O2, New Look, Hotel Chocolat, Urban Outfitters and Krispy Kreme. More venues are being added to the app daily.
