Student discounts that will change the way you save
By Calasandra Spray (TheLorian)
Tuition, textbooks, calculators, binders, pens, pencils, room and board. The cost of college can add up quickly. Making the decision between working more hours or giving classwork its proper due can become a hard choice in the face of these expenses. Fortunately, there are lots of scholarships, and grants to help offset these. However, something less known is the amount of discounts for college students to financially assist them in their learning journey.
Looking for a night out? There are lots of budget friendly options for students to partake in including the Dubuque Museum of Art, the Mississippi River Museum, and AMC theater. At the Dubuque Museum of Art student admission is four dollars, you can visit throughout the year as exhibits change every three months. In addition to the art museum, the National Mississippi River Museum has a student discount if you present your ID at the door. If you want to see the latest feature, AMC offers student discounts on Thursdays. There are even deals on travel, Hotels.com offers a 10% discount for students.
If going out isn’t your thing perhaps a night in with Amazon Prime movies, Hulu Shows, or Spotify music flits your fancy. Apple music has a deal of $4.99 a month for students. Amazon Prime has a student discount of $6.49 a month, and the first six months are free! The greatest deal of all is a package deal from Spotify, Hulu and Showtime with a student rate of $4.99 a month for all three. Participating in these great deals can have you listening, and streaming on a budget.
