The MUST HAVE Guide to Maximize Your Student Discount!


If you are a student (high school, college, graduate, etc.) You are eligible for some awesome student discounts at so many places whether it’s a restaurant, retail, or even car sales!! You should take advantage of these awesome sales because of all the hard work you are putting in with your academics. You deserve it! 

My first piece of advice is to research the place you are shopping to see if they offer discounts, and secondly just ask! Be bold, it never hurts to ask. Make sure that you have your student ID on you to show proof that you are a student. You will be surprised at how many places offer student discounts. No matter how big or small, local boutique or national chain, a percentage or dollar off helps ANYONE–but especially for us struggling students!

Disclaimer: Discounts may vary and are only for participating locations. Each retailer has their own rules and regulations on discounts. Always ask and don’t assume that you will get a discount.

    Definitely bookmarking this for future purchases! I missed out on so much during college, but now as a grad student I look forward to taking advantage of these discounts!

    I hate that I am just now finding out about some of these places, considering I graduated in December. Talk about bad timing! I did share with my friends that are still in college though cause who doesn’t love a good discount. However, I believe that teachers get a good deal of discounts as well. Any chance you have a list of those as well? 😉

I'm so happy you are visiting Freely Fatima. Leaving comments on my posts brings me so much joy! xoxo to you :)
