Student Discounts

As a 3rd year student I am always on the lookout for ways to save a few bucks. So, I wanted to compile a list of some great places in Detroit that are also near campus, as well as some big name companies that offer discounts!


  1. Apple
    • Starting with the biggest name on most campuses, you can save on Apple products such as the ever popular MacBook Pro, and iPad to make taking notes in class a breeze.
      • As a personal MacBook Pro owner, I really love the utility of my laptop. I can use it for editing notes to playing video games. It is also extremely light in comparison to other brands.
  2. Avalon International Breads
    • Who doesn’t love a fresh loaf of bread from well-known local baker? If you have no idea that Detroit has an amazing bakery, YOU MUST COME HERE!! They have everything from breakfast sandwiches, pizzas and the obvious bread and other baked goods. To make the deal even sweeter Wayne State Students get 15% off on their order on Wednesdays.
  3. La Pita Fresh
    • Have a late day where you are stuck on campus? If you love Mediterranean grill this is perfect. They have their famous pitas along with other classics and a liquid health bar for healthy, fresh smoothies. WSU students also get 10% off after 4PM by showing their OneCard.
  4. StudySoup
    • Many of you know of StudySoup a website that is a platform  where class notes are compiled into one major database for students to search and download as to prepare for their exams. However, they also have blog posts with information for all students, this one features more ways to save as a college student!
  5. Socra Tea
    • The best to destress from a hectic week of work, classes and extracurriculars is to drink some tea. Not only is this something recommended by many physicians (see here) but it really allows you to relax and reflect on yourself. Luckily for WSU students, this local Detroit store has 10% off all bulk tea or brewed tea with One Card. Meaning more tea for you to stock up on and a great price!
