Top College Student Discounts

College tuition and other school-related expenses can be something of a jolt to the pocketbook of parents and students. That’s why it’s a great idea to find other ways to save money, like getting college student discounts through Rakuten!

Founded in 1998, Rakuten offers its more than 10 million members Cash Back at more than 2,000 merchants, along with coupons and promo codes for amazing deals on thousands of products and services. But did you know you can get even more savings by shopping at places with student discounts? It’s so easy! College students typically receive a “.edu” student email address, which they can use to get additional savings on their purchases at participating merchants. Those student discounts will give them even more savings on the items they’ll need for school, such as clothing, books, dorm-room supplies and more. Check merchant websites to see if they provide discounts for those with a “.edu” email address, or if they will give college students another method of savings. That way, your student can go through Rakuten as they normally would, and then receive additional discounts from merchants who are happy to help them — and you — make college life a little more affordable.

When your student is at a school away from home and needs to purchase something at a local store, the Rakuten In-Store Cash Back option can be used through the Rakuten App or on the In-Store Cash Back page on There are also several student-status-verification platforms your child can join to get discount codes to shop through Rakuten at participating merchants for even more savings!
