Roundup: Student Discounts

Education is obviously one of the best benefits of being a student, but one of the bonuses is the student discount. Often taken for granted by those to whom it is available, the student discount can save you hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dollars. If you’re a student, you should get in the habit of asking for a discount everywhere you shop, after all, it could pay off huge.

Here are some of the places to look for a deal:
