So, you might be interested in taking advantage of student discounts that are offered all over the country.

While a lot of savings available while you're studying are pretty low — around 5% to 10% — you can find deals for students that are between 15% and 50% off to really save money.

That includes student discounts for Amazon Prime , Spotify, Bulk Barn , Adidas, and more.

Deals are available to high school and post-secondary students in Canada with discount programs like Student Price Card (SPC), which costs $11.99 a year but gets you access to more than 400 deals, and UNiDAYS, which is free to join.
