Student Discounts

Most student discount programs require you to sign up with your student email or student card as proof of your school attendance. They tend to only share online discount codes after you’ve signed up. Since this is the case, I won’t share specific codes, but rather different student discount programs and the discounts they do offer. I hope this helps some of you students out there who are also looking to save some $$$ 🙂

 

 

Spoiler

Adidas Canada: Student Purchase Program. Get 30% off regular & 15% off discounted items online. Enter your college or university email and they’ll send you a code.

 

Microsoft: Students and teachers get Office for free! You can find it by clicking Office for students under Education at the bottom of the website. All you need is your student email. They also have discounts on certain products under their Deals tab. 

 

ISIC (International)

The ISIC (International Student Identity Card) let’s you get discounts internationally. The only downside is that it isn’t as fast to sign up for. In addition to sharing your the name of your school, your program and your birthday, they’ll ask you to send in proof that you are studying full time, proof of your date of birth & a passport type picture of yourself. The card also costs $20 every year. Their focus is more on discounts for traveling and attractions, but they do have some for dining and stores.

 

SPC (CA):

The SPC (student price card) is a card that is available for Canadian students. It is sold online and in certain participating stores across Canada (they usually have a list up when they start selling the new cards every year). Students using BMO get it for free. The card is 10$ and good for 1 year (it expires at the end of July). Some places might ask you to show a student i.d. along with the card. If buying online, the codes are all available on the SPC website or app. Here are examples of what the offered discounts are:

Spoiler
Chicago Lyric Opera: The Lyric Next Program allows students to get access to $20 tickets with a valid student ID. 

NYC American Museum of Natural History: Discounted tickets for students online.

NYC Broadway: Some shows have student rush tickets available before the show begins. All you need is a valid student ID to get discounted tickets!

NYC Museum of Modern Art: Students get $14 tickets (Reg. $25)

Also don't forget to use cash back programs such as Ebates and browser extensions such as Honey that apply coupon codes at checkout on many websites. They both have referral programs as well.

Lastly, I would love to hear about the student discount programs available in your areas. Since I live in Canada, I'm not too familiar/don't have access to the discount programs elsewhere, so it'd be great if you could share so that I can fill in the list.

I tend to be wary sharing tech and travel deals since they're often offers on certain items that change instead of being a set % discount. If you find any good ones though, please do share! If there are any categories that I mentioned that you find aren't as important, let me know. It'll help me to know what to look out for. 🙂 Thanks!

Re: Student Discounts

It's been forever since I've been a student, but one of my favorite things ever was the student discount tickets at the Chicago Lyric Opera. The program is called Lyric Next and if you're a full time student (high school, undergrad, grad) with a valid student ID, you have access to $20 tickets!!! The signup method is a little different now but I saw dozens of operas, always in seats that would have cost $150+ (the front half of the main floor) and it remains one of my favorite memories from my time in Chicago. One of the best opera houses in the country, gorgeous building, fancy clothes, and entertainment for $20 a person? DONE!

 

pro-tip - I was able to take advantage of the Lyric Next program for a few years (umm, at least 4...) even after I officially graduated because my school ID did not list graduation/expiration dates. They check ID's when you go to will call to pick up the tickets but it was never ever an issue. 

Re: Student Discounts

That's a great deal, @MissPuff! $20 for a concert is so cheap! I'll add it to the list now 🙂

Re: Student Discounts

what a fun idea for a thread. For anyone here in or near the NYC area there are a lot of broadway shows that do student rush tickets so that's always worth checking out!

 

A ton of clothing stores have them as well although I know that's more a long the fixed line rather than changing! It's been a couple of years since I was a student but I remember for sure Jcrew had one. 

 

Re: Student Discounts

That's so cool, @Kim888! I'll be sure to add that to the list!

 

And I'll be sure to check out different store websites to see if they say anything about student discounts. I know Forever 21 and H&M sometimes have them, but I'm not sure if they're a permanent thing.
