Balling on a Budget

Written by:

Student IDs can help students in more ways than just getting a Famous Fast Eddy Omelet at the Dining Center. Student IDs can be used for discounts at numerous places, such as movie theaters, Amazon Prime, and even Chipotle where students can get a free drink. But, the real deals are the local student favorites that offer discounts to Penmen.

Hungry students who don’t want to eat at the Dining Center, Munchiez Food Truck, or the campus cafes might want to consider Mr. Mac’s. Mr. Mac’s is a local restaurant that sells many different types of macaroni and cheese. They will also deliver to campus. On Tuesdays, the restaurant offers a 20 percent discount for students.

Pizza 911 is another crowd favorite. Students should not worry if pizza cravings hit at 10 p.m. after the Dining Center closes; Pizza 911 will save the day. They are open and deliver until 11 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday, midnight on Thursday, and 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. They even accept Penmen Cash and provide a set of coupons with every pizza box.

The fun doesn’t end with food. Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) allows students to purchase tickets for nearby amusement parks at majorly discounted prices: Canobie Lake Park: $29, Six Flags New England: $39.50, and Water Country: $29.99.

To get these deals, students should go to SNHU’s ticket page and follow the provided instructions.

For students who feel creative, Muse Paint bar offers a 10 percent discount by making a reservation online with the special code SNHU10.

Student discounts can also be found at places like Ben & Jerry’s, Subway, Sam’s Club, Spotify, and Vineyard Vines. It is always encouraged to ask companies whether or not they offer student discounts; the worst they can say is no.
