Most college students know little tips and tricks to use to make their college life a little easier -- and a little less expensive. Whether it's using your student ID at the movie theater or using an education discount when buying a new computer, there are seemingly endless deals out there if you know where to look.
Because the collective buying power of college students is so strong, many websites specifically target college students and offer them some great deals. It's hard to know about these great resources, however, if you're not sure which sites are trustworthy and which ones are just trying to get your information.
To help sort through the mess, a new category is being introduced in this year's About.com Readers' Choice Awards: Best Website for Student Deals. If you know of a site that offers great deals and/or discounts for college students -- whether it's a specific vendor, a site that offers a daily deal, or a site that offers deals in a specific market (like travel) -- make sure to nominate it below!
The timeline for the 2013 Readers' Choice Awards is as follows:
- Nominations will be accepted from January 14 - February 11, 2013
- Voting will take place from February 19 - March 19, 2013
- Winners will be announced on March 27, 2013
Please also note that the About.com Guide to College Life, Kelci Lynn Lucier, will be facilitating the process. She will select the final nominees based on the number and quality of nominations received. For more information on the awards, please visit the 2013 About.com Readers' Choice Awards homepage.
