As students, we often find ourselves searching for discounts because we never ever have enough money.

Fret not, for we have rounded up the best places for you to maximise your student benefits in Singapore!

Just do not forget to bring your student pass along, duh.

Shop till you drop!

1. Topshop and Topman

Yes, Topshop and Topman grant student discounts as long as you flash your student pass. The best part is, there is no minimum spending. This gives you the perfect excuse to indulge in a quick shopping spree after school.

Price: 10 per cent off regular-priced items
Availability: All year

2. Dorothy Perkins

Just like Topshop and Topman, Dorothy Perkins also provides discounts for regular-priced items for students. Since these brands are managed by Wing Tai Retail, their discounts are similar too.

Price: 10 per cent off regular-priced items
Availability: All year

3. Forever 21

FACT: I CAN NEVER LEAVE FOREVER 21 EMPTY HANDED.

 

Forever 21 is definitely a shopping haven for youths. Boys, do not worry because you can find their men’s collections in several outlets, such as the ones at Somerset 313 and Orchard MRT. If you are not tempted yet, just remember that Forever 21 always has a wide collection of affordable apparels.

Price: 10 per cent off regular-priced items with a minimum spending of $59

Plan your next escape

Some escape rooms offer off-peak promotions for students, and these are some of the best deals you should consider for your next group outing.

1. Room Raider

Located at Orchard Central, Room Raider offers an affordable price of $18 for students. However, only those aged 21 and below can enjoy these discounts.

Price: $18

2. Trapped

AT TRAPPED, YOU GET TO POSE WITH WACKY PROPS TO CELEBRATE YOUR ESCAPE!

 

If you are hanging out at *SCAPE and are looking for something to do, why not visit Trapped? Similar to Room Raider, they also offer tickets at $18 for students below 21.

If you are not eligible for the discounts above, no worries. Exit Plan, which is located in Chinatown, caters to all students from primary school to university level.

Movies and chill

WE DO NOT HAVE NETFLIX AND CHILL HERE JUST YET, SO LET’S WATCH MOVIES IN REAL MOVIE THEATRES.

 

Watching movies in cinemas may not be the “in” thing now, but it is still the most entertaining way to pass your time. While all cinemas offer student prices at $10 and below, Shaw has the lowest priced tickets for students. (You can thank us later.)

Food is a necessity, which is why you can get student discounts almost everywhere you go. Here are some of the best student deals – you won’t spend more than $10 – you should consider while dining out.
