College students in Western Michigan have some deals coming to them when they flash their student ID cards, according to a published report.
Entertainment, edibles, physical fitness and even academics can be enjoyed for a little bit cheaper thanks to companies that are cooperating, WZZM reports.
Students with their ID badges who visit the Gaming Warehouse in Grandville on Wednesdays will save 10 percent when they acquire a used video game or movie. The $10 general admission price at Celebration Cinema offers a discount of $1.50 every day. College students with IDs can enjoy more than 50 percent off the $8 admission at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. They can enter for $3.
Uccello's Restaurants, which are located in Grand Rapids, Grandville, Standale and Caledonia, offer 15 percent discounts on food prices. Q-doba offers college students with an ID a complimentary regular-priced drink that goes with the purchase of an entrée. That will save the bearer of the college ID $1.69.
Skiers can save when they enjoy their favorite winter pastime. The Canonsburg Ski Area is offering season passes for $199 rather than the normal price of $359, which saves college students $160.
If students feel like doing some studying, they can visit the Apple Store and capitalize on the "Education Pricing" specials, which vary depending on the location and the university. But many academic tools that a student can use are offered with discounts.
For example, students at Kuyper College in Grand Rapids can score themselves some discounts on various personal devices that the company offers.
iPads, iPhones and the various iPods – touch, nano, shuffle and classic – all come with discounts.
Two laptops –The MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro – are available for discounts for students who have identification badges.
