Greenville College Student Discounts

by   |  

Your student ID card—yes the one with that awkward freshman picture—can become your passport to reduced prices. Did you know that there are several places in Greenville where you can get student discounts just for being in college?

Take a look at where to get student discounts in Greenville and online.

Restaurant Discounts

It’s Sunday evening, and you’re hungry. Your friends just left for the Papa John’s in The Den, but you didn’t go because you’re broke. You mentally debate what to eat. Finally, you resign yourself to your usual ramen for dinner. Again.

But you wish you could go out with your friends and eat something that’s not dining common food or ramen. Those get old after a while.

Thankfully, several restaurants give student discounts for either a meal or a free drink when you show them your student ID.

  • Chick-fil-A—free drink with purchase
  • Chipotle—free drink with purchase
  • Dunkin Donuts—10% off
  • Firehouse Subs—free drink with purchase
  • McDonald’s—10% off
  • IHOP—20% off
  • Sticky Fingers—10% off
  • Subway—10% off
  • Taco Bell—10% off
  • Waffle House—10% off
  • O. CHA tea bar—10% off
  • Kilwin’s—20% off

Several other restaurants, especially those near campus, offer student discounts. If you’re not sure a restaurant offers a discount, show your student ID and ask.

Clothes and Shoes Discounts

The soles of your favorite shoes just passed away. Their soles are now in shoe heaven, strolling down gold-paved streets. On top of that, your favorite jeans just shrank two sizes in the dryer.

But you’re still on earth, and you need shoes—and clothes. You check your budget, and you realize that without student discounts, you’ll have to get uncomfortable, used clothes—and shoes that won’t even last that long.

There are several places where you can get discounts if you show your student ID. Also, by downloading the Unidays app, you’ll get access to discounts in the following stores and many others:

Technology Discounts

You’re typing furiously at your desk. It’s past midnight, and your essay is due in the morning. To relieve your stress, you stand up to take your fourth bathroom break in the past hour.

But as you stand up, you bump the coffee cup next to your laptop. And the unthinkable happens. Your sugar-free, almond-milk vanilla latte spills on the keyboard. Suddenly your laptop’s dead. And so is your grade.

You clearly need a new laptop, and thanks to your student discounts, you can get a cheaper deal. Many tech brands offer student discounts. Remember to use Unidays to save even more money.

  • Adobe—up to 60% discounts on Adobe software
  • Alienware—up to $150 off
  • Apple—up to $200 off a Macbook and $100 off your Apple Store purchase if you buy a new Macbook.
  • Dell—with the purchase of a PC over $699, get a free Dell tablet.
  • HP—special prices on HP Academy
  • Lenovo—discounts on selected electronics
  • Logitech—25% off
  • Samsung—20% off

Transportation Discounts

Thanksgiving break is right around the corner, and most people are traveling home. But not you. You can’t afford it.

But you can also get student discounts on travel. StudentUniverse is a company that offers cheap plane tickets, hotel bookings and tours. I’ve personally been using their discounts since my first semester.

These are some of the companies that offer travel discounts:

  • Greyhound—for bus rides
  • Amtrack—for train rides
  • STA Travel—for more plane tickets
  • Eurail—get 20% off train tickets if you’re 27 or younger
  • TravelSim—get 60% off SIM cards for traveling internationally
  • ISIC—While this company doesn’t necessarily offer discounts, it does offer an International Student Identification Card. This card proves you’re a student if you’re traveling internationally, and it gives you access to student discounts in other countries.>

Now that you know about these student discounts, make the most of them. Buying a new pair of shoes or a plane ticket could be cheaper than ever.
