Everyone and their mothers know that college is expensive. Luckily, starving college students can receive a discount at clothing stores, insurance companies, phone companies and fast food restaurants — all you have to do is show your valid college ID. Here are 23 places for you to take advantage of that discount:


  1. Banana Republic -- 15% off.
    Check out Banana Republic to fool your professors into thinking you have your life together by wearing something other than a 2XL shirt and a pair of shorts.
  2. Charolette Russe – 10% off.
    Ladies, at some point, a date is going to come up. Pick up a cute new sundress or romper for a discount — just in case.
  3. Kate Spade – 15% off.
    Need a nice gift for a birthday or Christmas? Why not treat mom or your sister to a new Kate Spade bag?
  4. Express – 15% off.
    Interviews are a part of growing up. Express is there to offer you 15% off to help you dress the part.
  5. Forever 21 -- 10% off.
    If you’ve been dying for a leather jacket that looks cute from the front but says “Tacos Rule” on the back, this is your place.
  6. Levi’s – 15% off.
    Guys, jeans and boots are a girl’s weakness. You’re welcome. 
  7. Geico -- 15% off with a B average.
    When they said that 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance, they really weren’t lying.
  8. Esurance -- 15% off with a B average
    For insurance in the modern world, you’re gonna need that discount.
  9. All state -- 20% off with a B average.
    You’ll be in extra good hands with 20% off.
  10.  State Farm -- 25% off with a B average.
    Jake from a State Farm will help you save money now so you can buy some khakis later.
  11. T-Mobile -- 10% off.
    Not only do they include Netflix in your phone plan, they also give you 10% off.
  12. Fed Ex -- 20-30% off, depending on the package.
    For those who rent their books, here’s a way to save some money on returns.
  13. Apple Music -- $5 a month with a .edu email.
    Avoid ads and limited skips for just $5 with Apple Music. Worth it.
  14. Dairy Queen -- 10% off.
    What college student doesn’t need a midnight ice cream run at least once a week?
  15. Buffalo Wild Wings -- 10% off.
    Thursday’s 60-cent boneless wings just got better.
  16. McDonald’s -- 10% off
    I’m lovin’ that.
  17. Arby’s --10% off.
    Coach Kahnt, this one’s for you. If only they offered a coach’s discount…
  18. Chipotle -- free drink.
    Now you can pay for the extra guacamole and not go broke.
  19. Waffle House -- 10% off.
    Good food fast and cheap.
  20. Chick-Fil-A -- free drink.
    They may be closed on Sundays, but that’s about the only disappointing thing about Chick-Fil-A.
  21. Qdoba -- $5 burrito meal.
    They haven’t given anyone salmonella yet and they offer a meal for $5? Obviously better than Chipotle.
  22. Burger King - -10% off.
    One of the only places in Ottawa that stays open 24/7 now hooks you up with a 10% discount on whatever you’re craving at 3 a.m.
  23. Subway --10% off.
    A “$5 foot long” might actually cost $5 now.

      So next time your roommate asks you if you want to grab dinner off campus, suggest somewhere in Ottawa like Subway, McDonald’s or Dairy Queen to snag a discount and save some money.
