Many people say being a student is the best time of your life – but it can also entail getting swamped by exam stress, having sleepless nights and constantly trying to stretch out a tiny budget (*sobs*). But the good news is that your student ID can do a lot more than just give you access to the library or a meal plan on campus, it also makes you eligible for a ton of juicy discounts from some of the biggest brands on the high street. Oh, yeah!
