I think we all can agree College can be pretty expensive. Between tuition, books, and room and board sometimes it’s hardly any money left to buy groceries. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Many business’s offer poor struggling college students discounts to assist with high prices.I’m currently in college and I also have two sons in college too. Needless to say, things are pretty tight around my house. In addition to clipping coupons, I’ve also compiled a spreadsheet of various discounts for college students.
One of my favorite places to shop is Amazon. They have so many items and options they are usually my go-to place for my college books. But did you know Amazon offers students FREE Amazon prime for six months and then half off after your six months are up? They DO! I enjoy everything that other Prime users enjoy, like FREE 2-day shipping and movie streaming.
The one thing every college student faces is writing the dreaded paper, right? Most instructors expect you to turn your papers in, in Microsoft word. Some years back when you purchased a new computer word would be free for years, but I guess someone got hip to that and started charging. I understand how hard it is to pay for something that once was free but it is the reality. However, the exception is for college students. That’s right, college students receive Microsoft Word, for FREE.
Many of your favorite restaurants also offer college student discounts. Your mileage may vary by restaurant and state so be sure to check each restaurants website before venturing in and showing your i.d.
