  1.        Discounts, discounts, discounts.
  •        Some stores, brands and online retailers offer discounts to students and teachers with .edu email addresses. Look for these! Ex. Amazon Prime offers a free trial to students and teachers with .edu email addresses. This means free two-day shipping for 3 months.
  •        You can also save on purchases by stacking coupons and coupon codes on and offline.  To find details and tips on how to do this most effectively read more here.
  1.        Rent textbooks and other expensive equipment you will need temporarily.
  •        Find out how long you will need the tools, and if it’s a short time period, like a semester, rent it! You can find online retailers to rent from by doing a simple Google search.
  •        Life hack: If you need a graphing calculator, ask if the teacher will allow graphing calculator apps for your phone instead!
  1.        Look for the sales and save those receipts.
  •        Shop around and compare prices at different stores, save all of your coupons and don’t forget to redeem rebate offers.
  •        Save your receipts! Several stores offer refunds if an item is marked down after you have purchased it. Remember, price adjustment offers usually expire 7-14 days after your original purchase date.
