Tuition fees, rent, and the costs of attempting to have a social life make being a student and being low on cash one and the same. If you’ve eaten Ramen noodles for dinner for the 5th time this week and want to save some cash this semester, luckily these establishments have you covered with some great student discounts!
Grocery stores understand the struggle of the university student. That’s why on Tuesdays Sobey’s has 10% off for students with a valid ID. Atlantic Superstore has a points system where the more you buy the more points you accumulate to put towards money off a grocery bill. Need something to satisfy your sweet tooth (or perhaps some cheap spices)? Bulk Barn has you covered with 10% off on Wednesdays!
2. Arts & culture
If you’re more the artsy type, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is $7 for students with an ID, and is free on Thursdays from 5–9pm! Neptune Theatre has discounted prices depending on the date, time, and seat location (often including pay-what-you-can performances). Symphony Nova Scotia allows students to attend certain shows for $16.
3. Discount cards
You can use your DalCard to pay at various vendors around Halifax—many of which will give you 5% back! With the SPC card you can get a 10-15% discount every time you shop at participating stores. The amount of the discount depends on the store. The card costs $10.50 (with tax) for a one-year membership. Remember to bring your Dalcard or valid student ID to get the discounts.
4. Live sports
It’s only $12 for students to watch a Mooseheads hockey game or a Halifax Hurricanes basketball game at Scotiabank Centre. Dalhousie varsity home games, on other other hand, are always free with your DalCard!
5. Spa service
At the Life Salon Spa, full-time students are given a 10% discount on all services. Namaste all day!
6. Eating out
Talay Thai has a 10% discount on Wednesdays. During the week (Monday through Thursday, depending on the establishment) participating restaurants like Your Father’s Moustache and Bubba Ray’s offer a discounted price on chicken wings.
