Student life at Mississippi State is great but college is usually the time in life when most people are at their most cash-strapped point. However, if you use student discounts wisely, you can stretch your dollars much further. Here are a few of our favorites in Starkville. Just be sure to have your student ID on hand to take advantage of these offers!
The Starkville Hardee’s offers a free medium drink and fries to students who purchase a Thickburger at the regular price. Get a combo meal for just the price of the burger!
2) The Pocket Points App
The Pocket Points app is run by the participating college/university and the primary aim is to keep people off their phone while in class. The big incentive is discounts and free rewards for keeping your phone on but inactive while on campus! Just download the app and check in when you’re on campus between the hours of 7 AM to 10 PM. As long as the phone isn’t active, you’ll be racking up points with no extra effort. Pocket Points rewards can be cashed in at over two dozen Starkville businesses including Little Dooeys, Strange Brew Coffee, and JUVA Juice.
3) A+ Auto Repair and Towing Service
Need an emergency tow or repair and aren’t a member of AAA? A+ Auto offers students a 10% discount on just about all of their services.
4) The Student Advantage Program
This is a national program, and it is “pay to play” with a $22.50 per year fee. However, students who travel a lot or stay frequently at hotels could recoup that cost almost immediately. A Student Advantage membership nets you a 15% discount on every Amtrak ticket, 20% off every Greyhound ticket, between 5 to 25% off at many car rental chains, and 15% off at Choice Hotels. In addition there are a wide range of discounts at different chains such as AMC Theatres, Target, and Rite-Aid.
