Guide To: College Discounts

As I'm sure many of you know, college tuition is no joke. Luckily, there are places and programs that understand the struggle and provide students with cheaper rates for their services and products. 

If you’re looking for ways to get discounts or save money on the things you love, look no further, we got you.


  • Chipotle (Go ahead and flash them your student ID, because guac is extra!)
  • Chick-fil-A
  • Subway
  • Dunkin Donuts
  • Buffalo Wild Wings


  • Best Buy: Best Buy’s Student Deals have saved my life on stressful occasions where my laptop shut down while writing a final paper and I had to purchase a new one the same day. They send emails with coupons on every department at Best Buy and you won’t be disappointed. 
  • Unidays: A true MVP. Signing up on Unidays with a verified student email allows you to receive emails with individually tailored discount codes to all your favorite stores/items. Some of the ones I’ve seen include Urban Outfitters, Raybans, Apple, Under Armour, Urban Decay, and many more. 
  • Amazon: All hail Amazon Prime for students. You can begin with a free 6 month trial that includes free two day shipping (insane!), unlimited streaming, photos, books, and music. If you choose to extend your Prime account, it’ll be $49/year until you graduate, which is worth it for 2 day free shipping costs.
  • H&M, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, J.Crew, and Limited: 15% off with proof of your student ID
