Being in college has many advantages when it comes to finding bargains. Many companies, local businesses, and organizations offer various discounts to college students looking to get a bang for their buck.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Spotify + Hulu: The popular music streaming app, Spotify, is always offering deals to students. The deals can change constantly, but the most popular at the moment is the ability to only pay $4.99 a month for unlimited Spotify premium service and access to Hulu.
Apple: Arguably the most popular choice technology-wise for college is Apple. Laptops, iPads, iPhones, Apple Watches, etc. However, many don’t know that Apple does offer a special student and teacher discount. Mention you are a student or teacher and show a valid ID to receive a 5% discount!
Nike: Are you a big online shopper? Nike offers 10% off online shopping for its college student shoppers!
Amazon Prime: The wildly popular online shopping site Amazon offers $6.49 a month memberships for its college users. To make it even better, the first 6-months are free!
Phone bills: This one is a little more difficult to find, however, it is a great deal to take advantage of if you can. Companies like Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T all offer discounts for students on their monthly phone bills. The deals can range depending on company and plans, but ask your provider to see if you qualify for a discount!
Insurance companies: Just like the discount on phone bills, certain insurance companies offer special deals to college students. Each company offers different kinds of discounts and under certain circumstances. Some of these companies are Allstate, Farmers Insurance, Nationwide, State Farm, and Geico.
Philadelphia Phillies: The Phillies offer special "Student Steal" tickets for all games in April and September each year. Included in the $15 Student Steal is your ticket to the game and a $12 credit for concessions within the stadium!
Philadelphia Flyers: Visit the Flyers official website and sign-up for Philadelphia Flyers Student Rush emails. By signing up for Student Rush, the Flyers will send you an email 24-hours before a game with a special $20 ticket opportunity for college students.
Being a student specifically at Cabrini has its perks too, as the Student Engagement and Leadership office, or SEaL for short, offers discounted tickets and events throughout the year.
Movie tickets: Visit the SEal office to purchase $5 Regal movie tickets. These tickets are redeemable at any Regal theater, including the one closest to campus by the King of Prussia Mall.
SEPTA tickets: Pay attention to the monthly activities calendar to see when Fast Track week is. During Fast Track week, Cabrini students can visit the SEaL office to purchase $5 round-trip SEPTA tickets to Center City and back!
Events: SEaL is always hosting and taking students to events around the Philadelphia area! Keep yourself posted with the monthly activities calendar to see what is going on. For example, Cabrini students can take advantage of discounted trips to places like New York City, Hersheypark, Center City, and more!
