Other college saving tips from Offers.com:
- Dorm Decor & Furniture: Think rugs, foldable chairs, bedding, towels, shower caddies and microwaves. Shop dorm essentials and back-to-school sales with Target promo codes.
- Apple electronics: The computer, phone, or tablet that got students by in high school may be outdated or underpowered for a college student’s needs. Take advantage of Apple’s education pricing for up to $200 off Macbooks, iPads, iPhones and more with the exclusive education discount.
Backpacks: Students carrying backpacks around campus can save themselves from a possible late-night trip to the store if they spend a bit more upfront on high-quality backpacks and lunch bags. Choose durable gear from up to 60 percent off at eBags to save money and time in the long run.
