As much as it pains us to say it, back to school is right around the corner. In fact, a lot of students are going to be back in classrooms two short weeks from now.
Going back to school isn't all bad though. One of the best things about the end of summer is back to school shopping. If you're on a student budget you don't need to worry about breaking the bank to get ready to go back. There are a number of amazing student discounts to help you out.
Whether you're in high school or university, there are a few different options to help you save money on everything from clothes, technology, transportation and more.
The first and probably the easiest way to score great deals is by getting a student discount card. The ISIC card, which costs $20 can save you a lot of money on travel, including airfare while The SPC card, which is only $10 gets you more deals on clothes and other retailers. Both are great ways to save money.
But you don't have to have a savings card in order to get some deals. Other companies offer their own deals independently. Clothing stores like Adidas, Banana Republic, and J. Crew all offer their own discounts as long as you have a valid student card and their discounts can be up to 30% off.
Meanwhile, students can also save on travel thanks to student prices being offered by both Greyhound and Via Rail. But be wary, Greyhound will be shutting down a bunch of routes in Canada very soon. Regardless, these deals make coming home to visit your parents a lot easier.
And finally, if there are two things that are more important to students than anything else, it is technology and food. Luckily for you, students get lots of discounts on both. Apple not only has deals for students but is also giving away Beats headphones with select Macbook or iPad purchases.
As for food, Bulk Barn and other grocery stores offer special student discount days while different restaurants like Subway and Dairy Queen often have their own student deals as long as you have a valid student ID.
So whether you're excited to go back or already dreading that first class, these deals can help make this back to school season a little more exciting.
