As a college student, be sure to take your student ID with you wherever you go. Many places offer student discounts with a valid school issued ID. These places include retail stores, gyms, salons, movie theaters, and restaurants just to list a few of your discount offering options. If you don’t see a discount listed or offered never be afraid to ask. You would be surprised how much money you can save. The money you save can be used to pay down your student loans or you can save it for future semesters to reduce the amount of student loans you will need.
