Hey Montgomery College! We are full swing into November, and more than halfway done with the first semester. It feels like everything is just whizzing by, and I don’t know about you, but with jobs, friends, and family, I’ve had to juggle a lot of activities on my plate. However, things cost money (much to everyone’s dismay), and if you’re anything like me or the rest of the student population, you don’t have unlimited funds. Here are some helpful websites I’ve used to help save a little extra cash for when gift-giving season comes around.
Unidays.com. In my opinion, this is one of the most creative and innovative money-saving websites out there because it is specifically tailored to university students and their interests. I’ve gotten steals and discounts on a wide variety of cool experiences and items, such as travel subscriptions, stationary, and more!
Wisebread.com. Although Wisebread doesn’t offer any sizable student sales or discounts, this blogging website offers unparalleled financial advice, specifically tailored to people on a tight or small budget. I’ve learned countless money-saving tips that have helped me save up thousands of dollars throughout the year.
Groupon. I’m sure many of you are familiar with the groundbreaking website and app, but Groupon has recently added many more partnerships and deals tailored to the everyday student. Be sure to refresh the app frequently to get amazing steals on restaurants throughout the Maryland and D.C. area.
Mint. In addition to Wisebread, Mint has effectively and efficiently allowed me to manage my finances all through the touch of a finger. Not only does Mint track your expenses, bills, and cards, it also personalizes an easy-to-follow budget for even the most frivolous of spenders (aka me).
I know it’s tough for us students to juggle school, expenses, and a social life all at the same time, but hopefully these websites and apps help ease some financial burden. Stay warm Raptors, and remember to always stay money-smart!
