It's that time of year again...

Many college students are heading back to their respective campuses to begin the Fall semester! Thankfully, Portage Pointe Apartments is a short drive from Kent State University. As many students aren't able to work as many hours as they had during summer, budgets can remain tight. 

If you have found yourself in this situation, have no fear! Here are 3 popular ways to get student discounts.


UNiDAYS has a free sign-up process and provides deals on anything from style to technology! Head to their website to join at https://www.myunidays.com/US/en-US


Amazon Prime allows for free 2-day shipping on most products, AND they also have a student membership! You can begin with a free 6-month trial and following that, it is a $6.49/month charge. If you make frequent purchases from Amazon, especially for textbooks, this is the perfect membership for you. Sign up at https://www.amazon.com/amazonprime?_encoding=UTF8&%2AVersion%2A=1&%2Aentries%2A=0&planOptimizationId=WLPStudentMonthlyEligiblePlans&primeCampaignId=studentWlpPrimeRedir&ref_=st_wlp_pr_redir


Lastly, Spotify Premium Student provides you with 3 total services: Spotify Premium with unlimited skips, Hulu, and SHOWTIME! Your monthly bill will only be $4.99/month, which is less than $2 per service per month. If you were to pay in full, these 3 services would cost nearly $30 monthly! What a great deal for those who love entertainment!


Remember, memberships offer recurring payments, so you will be charged in full following your university studies, so keep that in mind!
