Student life is often called the best time of your life, but the reality is that it can be challenging to manage a full time courseload with full time bills. Although your bank account may not be where you want it to be, your future earnings are likely going to provide plenty of disposable income that currently seems lilke a dream.

Companies know that you have a lifetime of spending ahead of you, and they’d like to start out on a good foot and earn your business early. Fortunately for you, this can mean big discounts while you are still a student. Take advantage of your student status and flex that ID for big discounts when you shop. The discounts can add up to thousands of dollars a year!

Some discounts are so generous that you may qualify to get their service entirely free (Microsoft Office 365, Autodesk, Buffalo Wild Wings, Wall Street Journal)!
