Free (or discounted) food franchises and delivery

Fuel your body and your brain with student discounts at the following retailers and meal delivery outlets:

  • Freshly offers 16+ aged students a discount of 15% off any meal plan for four weeks. All you need to do is sign up with a valid student email address. 
  • Dunkin' Donuts offers 10% off for anyone with a valid student ID. You could also work some summer shifts and receive additional perks. 
  • Burger King also loves the 10% discount deal and will offer this saving when you display your student ID.
  • Arby's will discount your entire meal by 10% when you flash a student ID. Plus, if you sign up for an account this holiday, you'll receive a 50% off deal on a smokehouse brisket sandwich or Greek gyro.

  • Waffle House has a Regulars Club that gives you the scoop on special, free coupons and news. When you sign up to become part of the club, you'll receive a deal for a free order of hashbrowns. Select stores also offer 10% off on your meal when displaying your student ID.   

If none of these alleviate your hunger, ask your favorite local food joint if they offer student deals. You may be able to offer your friends the inside scoop on student discounts they may not have known about.

Sporting events

Other than sporting events at your campus - that are free or vastly discounted, the NHL and MLB offer discounted fees in some cities. All you need to do is verify your student status and check out the website of your favorite sports team.
