The best student discounts you never knew about in Philly

I guess there are some perks to being a college student

As a student in college, when you hear the word “free” or “discount” you automatically go crazy.

You will do almost anything to save a few bucks. But, one thing is for sure, college does not stop you from wanting to go out and explore all Philly has to offer.

When first getting a student ID you don’t realize all the benefits that come with it. You finally become an official college student, but most importantly, you now have access to a whole new world of discounts.

Some companies understand the struggle of being a poor college student. Places in Philly to eat, shop and sightsee offer several discounts to students who show their student ID. Find out a few places where you can go and get a good deal!
