Source: Back to School: The Best Student Discounts
One of the best perks of being a student is the discounts you get when you flash your student ID. Perhaps the retailers sympathize with the amount of new things a student has to purchase at the start of the back-to-school season. Or maybe they are simply cashing in on our buying spree. Check out the awesome discounts students get to enjoy on electronics, clothing, and more.
Club Monaco: Mid to high-end clothing line, Club Monaco, gives students 20 percent off as long as they bring their ID.
J. Crew: Bring your photo ID and you'll get 15 percent off. If you have an .edu address, you can get that discount if you're shopping online or over the phone.
