Life as a student can be a struggle, from trying to keep up with your classes to working at a part-time job. Don’t forget about your girlfriend or those student loans weighing over your head as well. The good news: we’re here to help put a couple bucks back in your pocket so you don’t have to settle for cheap beer this weekend…

9to5Toys has scoured the internet looking for some of the best discounts available to students and rounded them up. Below we’ve got details on potential savings at Apple, Amazon, Eddie Bauer, J. Crew and more. You probably had no idea that you’ve been missing out on those discounted burritos.

One of the most popular student discount programs is from Apple. We’ve often highlighted its Back to School promotion but the truth is that students can grab the latest tech at a discounted rate any time of the year. Discounts are available on Mac computers, iPads and iPods as well as up to 34% off AppleCare protection for your devices.

Students often have to order a lot of books and we know that going to the bookstore route is a foolish choice. Students can grab a six-month free trial of Amazon Prime, which includes two-day shipping on millions of items plus access to streaming videos, music and movies. Note: After six months Amazon will automatically renew this membership at a 50% discounted rate.

Best Buy frequently offers different student discounts each week, ranging from Apple products to flash storage, headphones and more. These deals are easy to pick up, simply visit this page and enter a .edu e-mail address, you’ll receive a promo code electronically shortly after that can be used on that week’s specific student deal.

There are also a wide variety of clothing and fashion retailers that offer student discounts as well. These are often available as in-store only promotions but are typically stackable on top of other sales or clearance items, of course a student ID is required. If you are willing to do the work, there is potential for some deep savings here. Some of our favorite clothing discounts include:

Of course, you’ll find student discounts at many popular food chains across the country. From $5 Qdoba burritos to discounted pizza, this is one of the greatest areas of potential savings for students. Check out these student deals on food:
