Let’s face it: If you’re a college student, you’re probably broke. But the Advocate has good news: You get a lot of discounts with your student ID that you may not know about. It no longer needs to linger in your wallet unused.
Most movie theaters have the student discount, so don’t forget to ask; however, the Sie FilmCenter down on Colfax, which shows indie and art-house movies, goes even further by giving you a membership for more than half off. This pass can be used to get free popcorn and admission to members-only screenings.
That’s not all in terms of entertainment. Get to the Denver Center for Performing Arts one hour before curtain and, provided the show’s not sold out, grab a $10 ticket. That’s, at the very least, a 50 percent discount.
One of the biggest drains on the student budget is food. Chipotle may have nixed its student drink, but you can still grab a free soda at Qdoba as a reward for your scholarly status. Better still is a 15 percent discount at Brooklyn’s by the Pepsi center, and 20 percent off at India House on 15th and Blake.
Those are great, but the top student dining perk near school is happy hour any time at the Old Chicago across Speer.
Businesses negotiate these deals with the Office of Student Life in hopes that it’ll bring students through their doors. Take part and hopefully other companies about town will start adding freebies of their own. Give use to that lonesome student ID and save some cash.
