As graduation grows closer and closer, seniors become more excited to start their new lives in college.  But there’s more to graduation than being out of high school.  In addition to moving on, college students get many wallet-saving perks.

With a simple flash of their I.D., those enrolled in school can get discounts from places such as AMC theaters to chain hotels.  For example, students are able to use their ID at Apple and receive $200 off of a new Mac.
