You’ve got tuition to pay and limited time to work outside of hitting the books. But a small budget doesn’t mean avoiding all wardrobe splurges or nights out with friends.

Many of your favorite retailers offer discounts and programs for easy saving while you’re a student. Look to the web to save a few bucks on clothes, food and more.

What is a student discount — and how can I get one?

Student discounts are special savings offered to shoppers who can prove they’re pursuing higher education. Some discounts include high school students, but most are for students in postsecondary education at universities, community colleges, trade schools or other places of higher education.

When shopping in person, you typically flash your student ID to receive a store discount. But shopping online can be trickier, requiring online platforms like Student Beans, ID.me and Unidays to verify your student status.

How do I know if I’m eligible for a student discount?

Sites and brands require different eligibility. But if you’re enrolled in higher education and have an .edu email, it’s typically easy to qualify. Some discounts apply to high school students as well, but most are exclusively for the college kids.

Unidays requirements

To use Unidays, you must have a personal email from an educational institution that typically ends in .edu. If you don’t have one, contact the Unidays support team to see if it can verify your status as a student. You must be at least 16 years old to use Unidays.

Student Beans requirements

High school and college students qualify for Student Beans. Simply verify your student status through a confirmation link sent to your institutional email. If you don’t have a school, college or university email account, Student Beans accepts your acceptance letter, a student ID or an academic transcript as confirmation of enrollment.

ID.me requirements

To verify your student status with ID.me, you provide your institution’s name and personal information, including the last four digits of your Social Security number. Or upload your student ID or a copy of a recent transcript to confirm enrollment.

Amazon Prime for students

Amazon Prime Student gives students access to free two-day shipping and video streaming at no cost for six months. After that, you’ll pay 50% of the standard Amazon Prime membership. Use Prime Student for four full years or until you graduate, whichever comes first.
