Those Discounts Add Up
Student discounts… they are everywhere but many students forget to ask. I recall many times when we were in a store and I nudged my daughters to ask if they offered a student discount. After the obligatory eye roll, they asked and learned yes they do; unfortunately, it required them to have their student ID with them so they did not get the discount. Now they have a photo of their ID on their phone just in case they are out and do not have it with them.
Students can sign up online and download the app for Student Beans which will give them discounts for food & drink, fashion, tech and mobile, health & beauty, travel, study, and more. Student discounts can be found in the following categories. Students will need to be able to access their .edu email

Food & Entertainment Apps
Download the apps for your favorite places. You can use the apps to order ahead and also earn rewards. Check each university’s Favorite Apps blog for local apps/websites that offer rewards
- DoorDash — This is the same concept as UberEats. They have an easy app that guides you through your order. They have also launched Project Dash. This initiative helps tackle food waste and hunger in the local communities that they serve.
- GrubHub – Simply browse menus, pick what you want, and submit your order. Local suggestions are great and most deliveries are around $3. It also allows you to order food (Starbucks, Chick-fil-a, etc.) on campus without waiting in line, and they run specials if you sign up for their emails.
- Fandango NOW — A streaming service offering movie rentals. Yay, study break time!
- Postmates — A large on-demand delivery and pickup platform, the Postmates app gives you access to delivery of anything from anywhere. Similar to Uber, Postmates couriers receive an order for your food, groceries, or whatever you need, then deliver it to your doorstep. Need another charger? Party supplies? Postmates will get it to you within the hour.
- Seamless — Super easy way to order food for delivery or takeout, and you can cash in on their Perks, too. Their very likable motto: “Whatever you’re in the mood for, wherever you’re in the mood for it, you’ve got it.” Can there be a life app like that?
- UberEATS — So they don’t have to stop studying to go pick up dinner. Another food and drink app, UberEATS brings the food directly to them
- Instacart– For faster shopping and easier checkout, get the app and have groceries, etc. delivered from most of the same places as Shipt, but also includes CVS and Whole Foods.
- Shipt – A delivery company that does the shopping for you at some of your favorite grocery stores, essential stores, alcohol stores, pet supplies, office supplies, and more.
