Tips

Best Students Discounts in 2019


Being a student can be tough, but it comes with at least one great perk – retailers and manufacturers know how many new things fresh students need and are also perfectly aware of their future buying power, which translates in plenty of discounts to get students’ attention early on.

Most discounts and programs are for college students only, but more and more companies are including K-12 too. Student deals are not always widely advertised, so always ask before purchasing.  Customer service can always explain details about blanket percent discounts, limited-time offers, and various limitations. Be aware that most retailers will ask for a student status proof.

When it comes to technology, find out what type of computer will your school require you to have, if any, and what software will work best for you ahead of time.

While you have your student ID and your school email address, never hesitate to use it. Take a look at some deals you can find for virtually every occasion in life:
