Educational Discounts

With only a few more shopping days until Christmas, the pressure is on to make those last minute purchases. Time is running out, but the budget-conscious student can still make some wise purchases.

If your school issues student identification cards, make sure and take advantage of educational discounts where possible. For example, at the Apple Store in the Galleria, you can get a 10% discount on Apple-branded products (such as iPod, Apple DIsplays, and Apple Computers). Just show your student id and the discount will be given at the register. On high dollar items, the discount can result in a considerable difference in price. An 4G iPod nano that is normally $249 can be purchased for $229 – the reduction is even greater on laptop computers and desktops.

You can even use this discount through the Apple Store Online if you choose the “Educational” link when going to the store’s page. Additionally, some educational institutions have set up customized pages that show recommended products at special prices for that school.

If anyone knows other places that offer educational discounts for purchasing products in the Houston area, please mention the location and discount in the comments.
