School will be starting soon and for those of us facing back-to-school expenses, any ways we can reduce some of those costs are welcome.  This year the total spending for back-to-school items is likely to be over 68 Billion Dollars so a little saving can go a long way.  Usually simply proving student status will enable any discount offers and that can be as simple as showing student enrollment documentation or a simple student ID.  Here are some of the savings opportunities to look for:

  • In clothing, sporting goods and footwear;
    • If you register with the student discount service “UNiDAYS” at com (registration is free) you can get a 15% student discount at Ann Taylor and other retail stores. The discounts are usually available for online purchases as well.  That 15% student discount is also available at Banana Republic, J.Crew and Madewell.  Teachers are often eligible to get the discounts too.
    • Foot Locker and Lady Foot Locker and some other retailers offer students 10% off on online purchases of $50 or more after you obtain a $22.50 “Student Advantage Discount Card”.
  • In food and entertainment;
    • Select AMC theaters offer discounts to students every Thursday and with that “Student Advantage Discount Card” you can get 40% off prepaid tickets. Some Cinemark theaters also offer “Student Discount Days” as well as many Regal theaters.  Check with local sites to get their specific information.
    • Some Dairy Queen and IHOP restaurants offer discount deals to students and some may require that you get their own student discount card to qualify for the discounts.
