The cost of college continues to skyrocket, so if you're in school, it only makes sense to find all the student deals you can. Read on to learn where and how to get the best college student discounts.
What Student Deals to Expect

College student discounts are available in all kinds of product categories, from clothes and contact lenses to student laptop and iPad deals. Apple student discount, anyone?
The most common student discount is 10% off, but deals can go as high as 60% off.
The most common discount is 10% off, but student deals can go as high as 60% off. Don't be blinded by these savings, though; scoring a student discount doesn't automatically mean you're getting the best price. You still have to shop around!
It's important to note that several insurance companies offer "good student" discounts. These have different requirements, including good grades, which may or may not be specified. Be sure to check with an agent before purchasing.
How to Get a Student Discount

Student deals are typically easy to redeem. Expect to show a student ID in stores, and you'll usually need a .edu email address when buying online. Some sites may also require you to create a unique login or be verified by a third-party service — UNiDAYS and SheerID are two common ones. However, even with the extra hoops to jump through, scoring student discounts is pretty simple.

The hardest part is figuring out where you can snag student deals — it's about as tough as finding birthday freebies or military discounts. Not all retailers advertise these offers, and many businesses provide discounts at the discretion of the local manager. That means you may snag bargain prices at the Burger King across the street from campus, but nothing from the Burger King across town.
Below, we've gathered 91 of the top student deals. If your favorite store isn't on our list, it's worth asking if they'll offer a discount, as well.
