Studentsí Discounts in the USA
Olya Bezvushko

When you are finally enrolled in school, you've probably realized that school and school-related expenses can really drain your bank account.

Donít forget about the advantages which appear together with studentsí status. Have you heard that many companies offer student discounts to those students who can show proof of school enrollment?

Think about these issues while searching for the ways to save money, while being a student abroad.†

†††† -†When you need a break from school, ask whether your student ID can qualify you for a discount at the local movie theatres, sporting events, theme parks, fairs, and concerts.
†††† -†There are probably quite a few restaurants near your college or high school campus that offer students some type of discount or special promotion. Try this the next time you eat out: ask one of the restaurant's employees if your student ID can help save you money.
†††† -†Many department stores and home furnishing stores offer students a percentage off their regular-priced purchases.
†††† -†There are insurance companies which offer students with good grades a discount on their monthly car insurance payments. And the savings can really add up throughout the year. In most college campuses you can usually find a student health center that offers studentís low cost healthcare, prescriptions and medicines. Before paying regular over-the-counter or pharmacy prices elsewhere, check with your campus health center first.
†††† -†Hardware and software discounts. Yes, you can get such educational discount and save an impressive sum of money. Be sure to research student discounts when purchasing a big ticket item like a computer.
†††† -†If you already have a bank account, be sure to find out if you are eligible for any of the bank's special student deals, as some banks practice students special rates or promotions on checking and savings accounts. If you are just planning to apply for one, look for banks that cater to your student needs.
