Life is expensive. For a college student the added costs of tuition and books can be enough to make any piggy bank cry. Thankfully, there are companies out there who acknowledge that the struggle is real for many students and offer student discounts on their products and services. 10 of these companies and their student benefits have been compiled below:
Amazon: Amazon offers Prime membership to students at half the normal cost. A six month free trial is available first and then the price becomes an annual fee of $49. Benefits include free two day shipping, streaming of movies and TV shows, student exclusive deals and discounts on certain merchandise and unlimited photo storage through Prime Photos.
Spotify: Students can get Spotify Premium at half of the normal cost. A monthly fee of $4.99 will get students ad free streaming, unlimited song skips and the ability to choose which song to play rather than only being able to use shuffle mode.
The New York Times: The New York Times offers a variety of student packages. A digital subscription is available for $1 a week, as well as four different options for delivery of a physical copy.
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores: Jo-Ann Fabric offers students 14 years old and older a student discount program. The discount card gives students 10 percent off every purchase and two discount coupons.

The download includes programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, as well as 20 gigabytes of cloud storage and a portfolio website. Students and educators can get the package for $19.99 a month instead of the normal $49.99 monthly fee.
Penske Truck Rental: Students who’re moving away for college can save money on their move with Penske Truck Rental.

Students will also benefit from no underage surcharges for those 18-23 years old.
Levi’s: Levi’s offers students 15 percent off their next purchase when they sign up for their student discount program.
