Ivy League students are smart, right? As you get older, smart has less to do with stellar SAT scores, and more to do with saving money (and curing cancer and saving the world, but that doesn’t really fit under the heading of “Student Discount Cards”). Luckily, there are some amazing deals out there for students only!

Throughout high school, you’ve been aware of the occasional student discount – paying lower prices than your parents at the movie theater, for example. But gone are the days when you were a little kid and got in half-price at Disneyland. You’re movin’ on up to the big leagues – the Ivy League specifically – and you need a new plan that works for college students.

The one we recommend is not a big secret; in fact, it’s the single most widely-accepted student discount card. It’s called the Student Advantage card, and it’s accepted at thousands of places – both big national chains and small regional joints near college campuses. Lower down on this page you’ll find a partial list we’ve assembled of some of the most recognizable of the places where you can save big bucks.

From our Dorm Room Checlist you got a taste of some of the expenses facing you – laptop computer, dorm furniture, posters, back to school clothes, textbooks, airline (or bus or train) travel, pizza (lots of pizza), and much, much more. Ouch. Luckily, the Student Advantage Card works with all that stuff. And, as a further added perk, you can click here to save $10 on your Student Advantage card.

If you’re not sure whether or not you’ll make good use of a student discount card, just take a look at this list of merchants who accept the discount card – for students only. We’re pretty confident you’ll recognize a few names here…
