7 Student Discount Sites to get the Best Deals
With tuition fees, a new found coffee (and mi goreng) addiction, and a million other things we have to pay for on a student budget, we definitely need to stretch that dollar as far as it can go! But the best thing about being a student is the student discounts, so here’s a guide to getting the best deals on the cheap while you still can!
1. University Guild Discounts
Our 2019 Guild membership entitles us to awesome deals all around Perth — from skydiving, to paintball, to surfing school. Start gathering your friends and making a list because there’s so much to do and so little time! Who said Perth was boring? Check out your individual University Guild websites to find out about all the amazing discounts the different Guilds have to offer — Curtin, ECU, Murdoch, UWA.
2. Spotify Premium for Students
Dear Spotify listeners I have an ad for you! If you didn’t already know, Spotify Premium is a beautiful $5.99 for students, which is a whopping 50% off the price for non-students! Stop listening to ads, and start listening to music wherever and whenever. Take advantage of this offer while you can, or use that $5.99 to buy ONE pizza from Dominos’ that’s going to be gone long before a Spotify ad is over — absolutely your call. (You can get Apple Music for 5.99 too, if that’s what you prefer!). Also follow us on Spotify!
3. International Student Identity Card (ISIC)
The ISIC is the biggest internationally recognised student ID with over 150,000 awesome deals in 130+ countries. For just $30, the ISIC basically acts as a global student ID and unlocks the doors to all the international discounted goodies. With hundreds of great discounts for travel, you can plan your next big adventure over the semester break! But in the meantime, it’s $12.50 for a movie ticket at Palace Cinemas!
4. UNiDAYS/ Student Beans
Sign up for UNiDAYS or Student Beans and get discount codes for almost everything you could possibly need. Fashion, beauty, lifestyle, health & fitness, technology — you name it you got it! The easy website and straightforward system is probably the worst thing about it, because it only means that you will find that discount code and you will spend the dollars you already didn’t have. But 10% off ASOS um yes please?
5. Student Edge
Student Edge is a member-based organisation more specific for students in Australia. This community offers a much wider range of services, from study and career help, to life guides, and more importantly, to the student discount deals. Get that 15% off at Baskin Robins because you totally deserve it (the nearest one is down Hampden Road, just a 5 minute walk from Cat’s!).
6. Tech needs
For all your tech needs and educational softwares, it would be worth checking out Student Discounts. This site offers huge discounts for big brands like Adobe, Microsoft, Sony, and so much more! If you’re more of an Apple person, Apple Education Pricing also offers discounts to university students for Apple products.
A chill night at a pub, or free snags, or karaoke and complimentary finger foods — take your pick! If you get stuck picking a place to go, check out Cheersy to help you find the best food deals available to you and around you right that second. The site hunts down all sorts of deals and lets you know the days and times these deals are available for. Have a good time without breaking the bank. Wins all around!
