Being a student has its ups and downs, but one of the best things about pursuing higher education is its perks. Whether it be in store or online, the world wants to make it a better place for scholars and their wallets and does so by providing an array of discounts. 

Luckily, instead of having to go digging through Google and articles explaining which offers are available and how to get them, I’ve taken it upon myself to do the backbreaking work and compile a list of the most notable online discounts available for students pursuing a college degree.
