In order to understand the benefits of a railcard, you can assess the number of journeys you need to break even. You will see that usually only a few trips are needed.

Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £38.24: £88/£38.24 = 2.3. You will need to make about 3 trips from Cambridge to York (one way trip) with your railcard to break even.
