Stick to that budget by flashing your student ID at these retailers to score yourself a much deserved discount.
As a student, every little counts, but that doesn't mean you have to live off cup noodles and wear secondhand items to make ends meet. Between moving out of the parental's house, having to deal with rent and utility bills and crying over how much in school fees you're racking up for your education (worth it, promise), you still need to think about other important things. Like new clothes and beer. Most importantly, beer.
Many merchants understand the money perils that students through to secure themselves a career and provide discounts and vouchers to help you get there without having to sacrifice the fun stuff. Others understand the power of education and offer student discounts on laptops, such as Apple, Lenovo, Microsoft and HP. (Ain't studying grand?)
