The folks at Simple Dollar compiled a list of 60 student discounts from a wide range of retailers and service providers. To name a few:
- Take 15% off J. Crew and Banana Republic in-store purchases
- Tech giants like Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, and Dell offer discounts from 5 to 10% and you can save hundreds on laptops.
- Flash your student ID when traveling with Greyhound and Amtrak, and shipping packages with Greyhound is 40% cheaper for students.
- You get 20 to 30% off when you flash your ID at FedEX.
Another one worth noting is the 50% discount off Amazon’s Prime service, but if their parents subscribe students can just participate in that.
Most of these are college student discounts, but some also apply to younger students. I try to make sure my high school daughter takes her student ID everywhere, but many merchants will give the discount even without it.
