One of the most overlooked advantages of being a student is getting a discount at some of your favorite department stores.
Many popular outlets allow up to 15% off your total purchase with a valid student id or .edu e-mail address. These savings are accounted online, too.
Some places that cater to students include:
Rugby by Ralph Lauren
J. Crew and many more.
All of these shops offer already discounted items (hoodies, jeans, slippers) and having your student id will help you save more.
In addition to the many stores that are offering discounts, a number of websites have devoted themselves to finding discounts for college students. Check out Student Bistro, Student Advantage or Globe Student Discount to see how they work.
