Recommended Posts

Most people might not be aware that once enrolled your .edu email account gives you access to a range of discounts.

Most businesses in the US recognize students and offer discounted products and services, some that you will be using quite frequently. Here are a few to get you started:

Amazon offers their prime membership to students. To start off you get a 6-month trial and if you decide to continue you get the prime membership at 50% off. A student Prime membership includes Free Two-Day Shipping on over 50 million items, unlimited streaming of Prime movies and TV shows, unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos, 20% off pre-order and new release video games

BestBuy is another large retailer that will allow students to receive discounts on laptops / tablets and other electronics. Their deals are regularly updated and will offer you a greater discount over already marked down prices. This is great if you are looking for a new laptop to start off the school year

Typically education discounts at Apple range from $100 off on laptops / desktops and  $50 off on tablets and phones. If you are looking to buy an Apple product during July / August you can make use of additional campaigns such as "Back to school" which offer added discounts such as iTunes store credit or free beats headphones

Adobe products are heavily discounted for students, as much as 60% off. It is a great way to get your hands on Photoshop and other Adobe productivity suite softwares

AMC Theaters
You can watch movies at 20% off at AMC theaters with your Student ID. AMC runs this discount price for students every Thursday
