With the school year now in full swing, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind anybody in school that your student status qualifies you for an amazing array of savings and discounts. Retailers know that students often have very limited funds, but they still value your business, so they offer many coupons and discounts to attract you to their products and services. Below are lists of several websites that you can take advantage of to make your life easier and less expensive:

Amazon Student offers students a 6-month free trial on Amazon Prime, and a 50% discount on Prime afterwards. Prime offers a number of advantages and perks- you may know about free 2-day shipping, but did you know that Prime users also receive access to the Amazon Instant Video Library, free e-books, and access to free mp3s? You can enjoy free 2-day shipping on many products you’ll need for school, including textbooks and school supplies, as well as toiletries, electronics and even groceries.

Also be advised that many museums offer student discounts on admission, including many famous and storied locations like the Museum of Modern Art and the Met in New York, the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, as well as countless other museums all over the world.

Remember to carry your student I.D. on you at all times so you can take advantage of these and other special offers and discounts. It never hurts to ask if an establishment offers student discounts- you stand only to save money!
