Being a college student is an unusual time in your life where you're usually working pretty hard, but you're also dead broke. During times like these, the student discount can be a real lifesaver. If you've got a student ID, sometimes the world can actually look like your oyster. Here's a look at nine of the greatest student discounts that Michigan can offer!
Note: As discount offers frequently change, please double check with the business before you go.
AAA Michigan offers what's known as a Good Student Discount, which for students who drive is especially helpful. Though the program does require students to maintain at least a B-average, or a 3.0 on a four-point scale, those who qualify get 10 percent off their insurance.
While restaurants offering student discounts isn't particularly new, Qdoba has something a little special on hand. Called the “Student Burrito,” it's a specific burrito available for just $5 with student ID. Just to top it off, those who buy a student burrito also get a free drink with same, allowing students to not only get cheap eats, but free drink to round it all out.
You'll find Goodrich theaters in more places than Michigan, but Michigan almost has more of them than every other state combined, making it very much a Michigan institution. Those who have a Goodrich theater nearby, meanwhile, can use their student ID for a fairly substantial discount depending on show time. Student ID will actually get you the equivalent of a regular matinee price at night, so no matter what time you can get to the theater, you'll save a couple bucks on the latest movies.
Chances are a college town has a Best Buy either in or around it, and for college students, you'll find plenty of great opportunity for discounts therein. Savings on laptops, apps and programs, televisions, cabinets and more are all to be had for anyone who signs up with Best Buy's student discount program. Best of all, the deals are exclusive to college students, so these can't be had outside of that program.
There's no doubt that college students need Dunkin' Donuts. Whether it's that first shot in the morning or that late-night snack, America—and its college students—are fueled by Dunkin'. Those with a student ID, meanwhile, can land themselves a nice 10 percent off an order, which helps make those doughnuts just a little bit cheaper.

Very much a Michigan creation, the discount electronics supply store known as ABC Warehouse has a special offer for at least one student class: those with a University of Michigan Mcard. Such students can get access to employee pricing on everything that ABC Warehouse offers. Whether it's televisions, stereo systems, car audio or related services, you'll pay what an ABC Warehouse employee pays.
