Five Awesome Deals & Discounts for College Students in Boston

College Student Discounts in Boston, Massachusetts

There are a lot of great discounts for college students out there, just for college students with a valid ID!

I do have a complete list of college student discounts in Boston and Beyond, but I wanted to highlight 5 of my favorite discounts just for Boston area college students as we enter a new school year!

1. College Discounts at the Prudential Center: If you are heading to the Pru, make sure to bring your college ID with you. You can score discounts to Ann Taylor, Vineyard Vines, T Mobile, Microsoft, and much more!

2. Unlimited Eats at Fire & Ice: Head to Fire & Ice on Monday nights from 4-10pm and enjoy all you can eat for $10.99 with your college ID. (Boston, Cambridge & Providence locations only)

3. Cheer on the Red Sox: The Boston Red Sox has $9 (+ service fees) standing room tickets for college students (and high school students too)

4. Visit the Museum of Fine Art: Head to the MFA anytime for free with college ID if you attend a participating university

5. Enjoy the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum: Take advantage of free admission if you attend a participating university or pay $5 with current college ID

Also, if you have an .edu e-mail account, don’t forget about Amazon Student! Amazon Student is half of the price of Amazon Prime and you receive free two-day delivery, instant streaming, cloud storage and more! Amazon is a great way to save on textbooks and it’s nice too receive them in two days, especially if you like to wait until you receive the course syllabus to see you’ll need the book or not.

As a side note, I’ve sold my textbooks back through Amazon (I found I got more $$ than directly through the school bookstore and they pay for shipping) BUT make sure you sell them back quickly after the semester ends because your book value quickly deprecates!

What are your favorite college discounts in the Greater Boston area? Did I miss your favorite?!

What to Buy (and Avoid) in September

Did you know that there are certain months that are better to buy particular items than other times of the year.

Here are the best and worst items to buy in September:

  1. Summer Apparel and clearance: Summer apparel and summer clearance are great buys during and after Labor Day weekend
  2. Patio Furniture: The end of summer is a great time to buy Patio furniture and the like if you haven’t made a purchase yet!
  3. Grills: Grills are now in low demand and now make a great buy if you need one!
  4. Apple Products: New apple products are expected to launch soon so it’s a great time to buy older models for a great deal
  5. Coffee Deals: The end of September is National Coffee Day and expect to find great deals on coffee around that time!
  6. Jewelry: There’s not much going on in September for romance so jewelry is a great buy in September.

Here’s a few things to avoid in June:

  1. Large Appliances: Large appliances go on sale this month, but wait until Black Friday if you can for a really great deal
  2. 2016 Car Models: Everyone wants a big, shiny new car which is why the prices are so high. Instead look for a 2015 model for great discounts
  3. Fall Clothing: New clothes typically don’t have great deals yet, wait if you can for a better deals on fall clothing

Do you have any suggestions of items that are great to buy in September? Any items to avoid buying this month?
