Taking a graduate course while working full-time at a consulting firm finally began to take an effect on me. I started a hiatus to concentrate on my studies and when I received acceptance to a school for a master's program, I decided to delay my return and re-brand my coupon-guru antics from a student perspective.
So, with 3 days left as a "working professional", it's time to get back to discounts. 2 days ago, I booked my ticket from NYC to Vancouver using StudentUniverse. I saved about $400 on a one-way ticket. This website offers exclusive fates to students and faculties of schools. After verifying my student status, I was good to go. So, if you're a student in a BA, BS, MA, MBA, PhD, whatever program - check it out. Not all fares are lower though - I used Kayak in conjunction.
With my last days of corporate citizenship, I made sure to make use of company discounts. I bought Microsoft Office through my employer for $20 and just saved 15% on flowers through WorkingAdvantage. Lesson is, check for company discounts no matter where you work - they exist.
