A friend tipped me off to StudentBuyingGuide.com, a cool site that is devoted to helping students save money through retailer discount programs. Here are a few of the discounts I saw on the site.
The site also explains how to get a 6 percent discount at Target online (holy cow!) using Edhance, a new site that is like eBates for college students. Edhance verifies you are a student (you’ll need an email that ends in .edu and be taking classes) before crediting discounts back to your credit card. Edhance has discount deals with Barnes & Noble, Target, Apple, Toshiba and others.
Between these two sites, students and their families can save a lot of money.
