Student Discount Directory

From the Editors of The Real College Guide

Except for the very few who were “to the manor born” so to speak, most college students don’t have a whole lotta dough. Always looking for a deal? It never hurts to ask! Many local restaurants, retail stores and other businesses offer student discounts. So before you swipe or drop cash, check if special pricing is offered. Here, we’ve rounded up a list of student discounts available nationwide. (Hey, who loves ya?) To qualify for in-store discounts, flash your student ID card.
