University of Memphis Student Discounts

Many University of Memphis students are already familiar with showing a student ID to receive in-store discounts, but you may not realize how many places actually offer one!  Our advice to college students is to bring your student ID with you when you shop, and to ALWAYS ask a sales associate if that store provides a student discount.
