Use your student ID to save big bucks

We all have the little plastic card with our unflattering picture printed right where everyone can see it. This card determines whether we can eat in the cafe, buy a snack at Coopers, rent a book at the Campus Bookstore or get in through the dorm doors past curfew. But once off campus, there’s no use for it right? Wrong. Here’s a list of locations and services that will save you money with the flash of your student ID.
