Student Discounts Where Teens Love (and Need) to Shop

Tuition, room and board may be the largest line items but they are far from the only costs of a higher education. College students need dorm provisions, books and updated technology, a heavy coat for cold climates, work clothes for internships, train, bus or airplane tickets home. Fortunately, numerous companies offer student discounts to help teens (and their parents) feel a tiny bit less pain whenever they swipe their credit cards.

We compiled the following list (click the links for specific details) but know there are countless others that extend this financial perk to college students. Remember, as the saying goes, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get!” Students should always ask at the register for a discount with college ID in hand.
