5 Places Near Campus to Use Your Student Discount

Being a student is rough. Between tuition, books, decals, and coffee, we students are slapped with expenses left and right. But that doesn’t mean there’s no benefit to being a student. In fact, lots of places will show you a little pity if you let them know you’re a student. So, here’s a list of some of the best places to keep your student I.D. handy.

1. Herbal Nails and Spa

Location: Argonaut Village

Accessible by Trolley: Yes

Discount: 10%

Combinable: No

The first item on our list is a place where you can escape your worries and just relax, and with finals just around the corner, you’ll probably want to check this place out. If you want to save even more money, new customers can complete a survey to get a free 10 dollar gift card and return customers can get the same if they show a yelp or google review upon their next visit.  Located in the Argonaut Village next to the Starbucks, it’s just a quick ride on the trolley away. And speaking of Starbucks . . .

2. Starbucks

Location: Argonaut Village

Accessible by Trolley: Yes

Discount: 10%

Combinable: Yes

The fuel of college students everywhere, Starbucks will give UWF students a small discount when they show their I.D. . However, the best part of this deal is that it’s combinable with other offers and promotions, meaning that a savvy consumer could get their favored drink for less than the usual arm and a leg. Perhaps even just an arm if they’re lucky.

3. Pita Pit

Location: University Square

Accessible by Trolley: Yes

Discount: 10%

Combinable: No

For all the healthy Argos out there, we have Pita Pit. Located right next to Target, they offer pitas (obviously) and salads that can be customized with a wide variety of toppings. Sadly, the discount here is small and can’t be combined with any other promotion; however, to make up for it, Pita Pit offers a new daily discount just about every day that sometimes outstrips the student discount. And if you find you like Pita Pit, think about picking up a loyalty card or grabbing their app. Both allow you to save money and can be used with your student card.

4. Boneheads

Location: Argonaut Village

Accessible by Trolley: Yes

Discount: 10%

Combinable: No

Another healthy choice, Boneheads offers Caribbean styled food at a reasonable price. If you’re the kind of person who loves chicken and rice or a nice grilled catfish, then this is the place for you. For the more adventurous, they have fried calamari as well. Unfortunately, their student discount is another that’s not combinable, but their prices are low enough to soften the sting quite a bit.

5. Voodoo BBQ

Location: University Square

Accessible by Trolley: Yes

Discount: 10% (On Wednesdays)

Combinable: No

Finally, we have Voodoo BBQ. They have great food and a lot of choices when it comes to what you want and how you want it, but they’re a bit stingy on their discounts. Only offered on Wednesdays and not combinable with any other offering, it’s definitely the weakest of the list, but you owe it to your taste buds to stop on by at least once on Hump Day if only for the cornbread alone.
