Being a student is hard. Whether you are in middle school, high school, or college, most of your time is split between doing homework, hanging with friends, and sleeping. You barely have time to have any sort of job, which can make earning spending money a huge problem. Sure, you could ask your mom for some extra cash, but that only works for a little while before she tells you to start babysitting and making your own money. In these instances, you need to spend as little as possible and save as much as you can. It can be tough to find ways to save money on certain things, but I bet you didn’t realize that the key to doing so can sometimes be something you already have: your school ID or email.
Luckily for you, being a student has its perks: certain companies actually offer discounts to students just for being a student. Some offers are valid in store with your ID, and some also offer online discounts just by entering your school email. It really is that easy! So next time you want to head to the movies or go to buy some cute clothes, be sure to mention you’re a student and you might be able to get some sweet discounts for it! Check out these stores and companies that will save your some cash.
