Cheap Student Date Ideas


There’s nothing more exciting than a blossoming university romance, but chances are your student loan won’t cover a romantic meal for two; more like a table for two at your nearest McDonald’s. However, there are ways to spend time with each other without breaking your bank account.

Cinema with your student ID

Many cinemas offer student discounts if you can provide your university student ID card. Odeon cinema offers a whopping 25% off for students. So, you can enjoy a date at the movies without worrying how much money you have left in your bank account.

Carve pumpkins

With Halloween approaching, get inspired and carve some pumpkins! It may not be the most common date idea, however it’s still an interesting, fun and most importantly cheap one. The only thing you would be spending your money on is a couple of pumpkins from the supermarket.

Happy hour

Many bars have a happy hour which is usually from Monday through to Friday, between 5 to 7pm. Happy hour provides discounts on alcoholic drinks on the menu such as a 2 for 1 deal. A bar is the perfect environment to relax and settle any unwanted date nerves with a few drinks.

Cook together

So what if you aren’t Jamie Oliver? You and your date can still whip up a meal together and have fun doing so. Simply find a recipe online, go to the supermarket and get some ingredients, even buy a few cheap candles if you really want to set the mood. This is a much cheaper alternative than eating out.

Study together

It may not sound like the most fun date idea but unfortunately you have to study anyway, so why not use it as a way of spending time together? You can make it fun by partnering it up with ordering cheap food and snacks. This is more ideal if you and your date are on the same course.

You don’t need to venture into your overdraft just to try and impress your date, take into consideration what they are interested in and try to work with that. Afterall it’s the thought that counts. Don’t forget to share your thoughts below. The best comment will get a shoutout!
