The Best College Student Discounts

Trying to pay for college without going into debt is hard. Money can get scarce when you are trying to pay for tuition and books while rushing to class and cramming for tests. Fortunately, many businesses show support by offering student discounts.

I’ve found, in some cases, student discounts in stores are not always obvious. If you’re at a local restaurant or other retail business be sure to ask if there is a college discount. You’d be surprised at how many times there are.
