With this list of student discounts, you can lay that broke student stereotype to rest. 


get student discount cards


When people hear the word “student”, they automatically think: broke.

Yet it doesn’t have to be that way if you’re a smart money manager and you use this list of 65 student discounts! There’s so many free and discounted things aimed at students, so take advantage of them while you still have that golden card.


Keep in mind that these deals are location-dependent, and that some rely on having different student discount cards. Some of the student discount cards are free, some are for a small fee, but all are well worth it!


Please let us know in the comments if any of these discounts do not work and we will fix them immediately!
