When we are in college we generally stop living with our parents, and even though we still depend on them financially, we start self-managing the money we get from them and start making our own choices. At the beginning this can be really hard; we tend to spend the money on booze, clothes, and other slightly unnecessary things until we end up with only 20 bucks for the rest of the month. Well, I have found a way to spend money on what I want while also saving money- so I can have both. Because we are students, we sometimes forget that we can find benefits for simply being students, but we can-especially when we are BRUINS! Keep reading for 20 student discounts around UCLA that every student should know about!
Discounts For Food
Who hasn’t been to Carl’s Jr. for a quick breakfast or for a great hamburger after class? Well, Carl’s Jr. Coupons exist! Check their website and get $1 OFF for certain breakfast items or certain hamburgers (it is always a different option so you don’t get tired of the coupons).
All students eat a sub at least once a week but not all know that Subway has 10% off discount for students, no coupon required, only a validated ID. Next time you head in to get the Sub of the Day remember the discount!
Who doesn’t love Chick-Fil-A? Well, on Mondays you can get a free sandwich with the purchase of a drink or side. Not a bad deal!

Hands down one of the best kept secrets in terms of student discounts around UCLA!
