College Discounts

college discounts

Below is a big list of college discounts for college students in Boston (and beyond!). I tried to link to the source whenever possible, but some companies do not share the information directly on their website, and it may vary from store to store. The best way to find and confirm a college discount is to simply ask the store whether they are on the list or not. You would be surprised how many stores may offer a college discount just by asking for one.

If you find a college discount in the Greater Boston Area that does offer a college discount and is not on the list, please e-mail me at Kate {at} Bostononbudget.com or simply leave a comment below!

    Hello,

    My name is Nadia Alburez and I represent a local business in Boston. I was wondering if there was any way that I can list my business on this website/the coupon book. I want to create a college-student market, and this website would help out a lot.

    Thanks.
