The Ultimate College Discount Handbook

College life is not easy. High tuition costs and being on your own for the first time leaves a lot of room for error. Cut out some of that stress by taking advantage of all the discounts and deals offered to college students. This article will showcase a few discounts that you should be using. There are several other deals you can use, so don’t be scared to go out in the world and ask when you are making a purchase. Always have your ID on hand and ask if they offer student discounts. Your ID will work as proof of your attendance at your school.

1. 10% for ASOS clothing

All you have to do is complete the discount form to verify that you are a student, and you will get your student code to get 10% off your entire purchase. 10% off may not seem like a lot, but that can $10 off of $100. ASOS carries a lot of quality clothing from different brands on its inclusive and body positivity platform. They have notable brands like Adidas, Nike, Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing, Monki, etc. They have clothes for men as well as plus size and maternity.

2. StudentUniverse for Traveling

3. Hulu, Spotify, & Showtime 4.99 Deal

Spotify is giving a neat deal for all college students. It was first offered as a limited-time offer, but almost a year later and the discount is still going strong. It has even expanded and combined with Showtime as well. As a part of the deal, you get Hulu, Spotify Premium, and Showtime for $4.99. All of these together would cost you over $ 20 without the discount.

4. Show your student ID when you go to the movies 

I think everyone knows about this trick, but I notice a lot of folks don’t utilize it. When you go to the movies, feel free to show them your student ID for a few bucks off of your movie ticket. This tip is extremely helpful if you are going to a theater near your school. If you have an AMC theater, I know from experience that they offer student discounts for those who show their student ID also.
