Students need to pinch every penny they can, but that doesn't mean they have to sacrifice on must-have technology, the latest fashions or chill-time entertainment. Fortunately, some of our favorite brands have undergrads covered with great discounts they can use without having to even leave the house. Most places require enrollment through a third-party service, such as SheerID or UniDays, to verify that the applicant is a student, but once you complete that step, the deals are yours.

Keep scrolling to discover the discounts that make schoolwork a little easier and hanging out after class friendlier on the wallet.
