Discounts you didn’t know you could get with a student ID

“Is there a discount for students?” is a question most students don’t think to ask. You may be surprised by how many places have discounts that they don’t advertise. When in doubt, always ask, but here are a few places where showing your student ID could get you more than you think. Remember, you must show a valid student ID for these discounts and some restrictions may apply.
