College is expensive, I think we can all agree on that. How do we make ends meet over the next four years? STUDENT Discounts!  Don't be afraid to ask everywhere you go. Here are a few great deals:

Amazon Student Prime - gives you 6 mos. of free Prime access and then 50% off after that for four years (or until you graduate which ever is less). This means cheaper textbooks, dorm supplies and video streaming.

STA Travel - Traveling abroad was unbelievably for my college aged daughter through STA. I thought there had to be a catch, but it all worked out just fine. You can also book spring break trips to great destinations. 

FedEx - Want to ship your winter clothes back home?  FedEx offers up to a 30% discount for students. 

Remember you never know until you ask - so ask.  College students are known for eating Ramen noodles, if you get some discounts on things you buy everyday, you could upgrade to cold cereal!
