As an incoming college freshman, I know I’m going to have a lot of new expenses in my life I never had to deal with in high school. Textbooks, travel costs to and from campus, dorm room décor and even tuition itself are all looming expenditures that are just waiting to cut into my clothes budget. So when my friend told me about studentrate.com, a website that helps college students find amazing discounts, I practically worshiped her. And now I’m here to share this life-saving site with you!

Studentrate.com is an online portal that offers discounts to college students for all their favorite brands and companies. It’s free to sign up, and once you do, you can access great deals in categories from apparel and textbooks, to hotels and travel, to food, electronics, entertainment and more!

Been eyeing some back-to-school clothes from Forever 21? Now you can get free shipping over $50. Need a new blow-dryer? Conair is giving 15% off to Student Rate members. Renting a car to go visit your BFF at college over Fall Break? Enterprise will give you 4% cash back to your Student Rate account! The deals go on and on! Studentrate.com even offers great student loans and scholarships to help pay for tuition.

Another amazing feature of Studentrate.com is that it will personalize deals for you based on your college! When I typed in Wash U, the site directed me to restaurant deals in St. Louis. I can’t wait to use these as I explore my new hometown!

But the best part may be Student Rate’s coupon codes for my favorite site of all…Dormify! There’s a code for free shipping over $50, and another for 10% off a $200+ purchase. But I can’t tell you them, you have to go sign up for studentrate.com and see them for yourself! Happy bargain hunting!
