Save your pennies, snag student discounts online

1. Always ask if there is a student discount in the store when you go shopping.

2. Google is your best friend for discounts. Whenever you are about to pay, try usingGoogle promo codes.

3. Create an email just for discounts and promotions of your favorite stores to keep tabs on the goodies, but also to keep your regular inbox from imploding.

4. Forget Black Friday and wait until Cyber Monday to do all of your holiday shopping online. Cyber Monday is the Monday after Black Friday, and most online stores have great deals. It’s great because you get to stay home, avoid the crowd and shop in your pajamas with a turkey sandwich in hand. Did I mention that shipping is almost always free?

5. PriceBlink for Google Chrome is a great app for online shoppers. Every time you visit a website, it will automatically search and let you know if there are any discounts or promotions.

6. Student Rate is a website that will let you know what stores are currently having sales and promotions.
