Heading back to school is a big expense; not to mention living as a student generally means living on a budget.
Budgeting is a great way to save money & live within your means – I’m all for it! But another way to save & ease the financial burden is to take advantage of Student Discounts.
Many retailers, restaurants and service providers offer students a special, discounted rate with proof of enrollment (student id card etc). Some have signs advertising these discounts, others don’t. If you’re unsure, it never hurts to ask!
With the help of Global News, we’ve assembled a list of discounts available to students across the country for just about anything you could need. Just make sure you’ve got your ID on you!
