Student ID = Savings

Recently I wrote a post on the discounts that are available to AARP cardholders (click here for link to read the post – 50 and Fabulous). Well retirees (or at least those of us over age 50 who are eligible to join AARP) are not the only groups that are offered discounts.

College students who have a current student ID can receive discounts from many stores or companies. Some do not advertise this discount but all you need to do is ask and show your ID to receive the benefits.

So for all of those who have a college kid in the family, pass along this information and save some money.  After all, college tuition is so costly that we all need to save where we can!
