Students: Get Education Discounts Sent to Your Inbox
Considering how limited the finances of a student can be, it's a good thing there are some great discounts that come with that student ID or .edu email address. However, sometimes the best deals are hard to find. This article lists some sites where students (and, in some cases, non-students) can sign up to have great deals sent directly to their inbox.
Students love to save money. Let's face it, you don't have that much to spend in the first place, so the less things cost for you the better! But sometimes it's hard to find discounts on things you need. Clipping paper coupons takes time, and there are so many sites to sort through that it gets hard to find what you need. Well, here are a few handy destinations you can use to get discounts to come to you through e-mail.
Amazon.com is a great place to pick up student supplies on the cheap. Through the site you can sign up for a student account (called Amazon Student) that has no subscription fee or monthly cost.
