To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to estimate the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £29.45: £88/£29.45 = 2.99. You will need to make on average 3 trips from Sheffield to Birmingham (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.
