Between tuition, dues, and textbooks being a student is very expensive. Lucky for you, many retailers see the hard work and money you are putting into your education and offer great discounts for students. However, you have to know how to take advantage of these perks. If you are unsure that a store offers a discount, simply ask “do you offer a student discount?” and show them your student ID card. More times than you know, they will say yes! and you are on your way to saving money. Always be on the lookout for discounts at your local retailers as well. More places are willing to offer a discount to students from the nearby schools, especially in a college town. To make it easier for you, I have compiled the ultimate list of student discounts to help you save money on the items you need AND want as a student.
