There’s nothing better than scoring a cheaper meal just by flashing your student ID thanks to many eating establishments offering generous restaurant student discounts.
Whether if it’s a free meal, appetizer, special lunch special, or just a nice little student discount on your total bill, always having your student ID when you go out to eat is one of the best things you can do to save a little extra money when you’re in college.
But just remember, most of these places don’t advertise that they offer a student discount so the most important thing is just to ask. (Literally the only discount you see advertised is usually a military discount but that’s even just as rare…)
Asking that quick question before you swipe your credit card could save you anywhere from 10-20% percent!
So with that being said let’s jump straight to the restaurant student discounts listing.
