How Students Can Get More Bang for Their Buck

College is expensive. That’s old news. Between Chipotle burritos, nights out, nights in with pizza, groceries, gas, books, and tuition costs, it’s no wonder our wallets are often empty. Thankfully, retailers have come to rescue our empty wallets by providing college students access to discounts at several different stores, restaurants, events, and more. Your student ID is the key to unlocking these magical, well-deserved savings.

While discounts vary from city to city and business to business, it never hurts to ask. Some businesses offer student discounts but don’t always broadcast this information.
Below is a list of places that offer a variety of student discounts. So reach into your wallet, flash that student ID with pride, and start taking advantage of the savings available. You may just save enough money to buy yourself a burrito. And chips.
