One of the scanty times you would ever get total freedom to experience various categories of activities and events in your life is in the University or college. Activities ranging from lectures, art events, parties, to even sporting events – for free. Yes. You can get many stuffs for free or discounted prices if you present your student Identity Card in the process. This is one of the benefits of college life.
But as sweet as it may want to sound, not everything is literally free. With the present high rates of tuition, academic loans and other expenses awaiting you, as a student, you find yourself living on a very skintight financial budget.
Not to sound like a carrier of bad news, I want to inform you that there are stores, service providers, restaurants, and other retailers that are quite aware of these situations for students and have decided to help in every little way they can by offering discounted services and even free services to students. Here is an overview and list of stores and retailers offering discounts to students.
Discounts on Digital Subscriptions
As a college student which you are, there are likelihood that you like to stream podcasts, music, TV shows, and movies. Shopping for school materials, daily necessities, and books may be something you like purchasing online. But then, you probably don’t know there are certain digital services that offers discounts to students whenever they sign up with their .edu email. Here are some sites offering students’ discounts:
