Save big on NFL Sunday Ticket if you have access to an eligible .edu email address: $100 (Reg. $200)

NFL Training Camps are opening this week and that means the season is just over a month away. Every fan knows about Sunday Ticket, the service that lets you watch every live out-of-market game each week. Not as many are familiar with the subscription service’s discount for those with access to a .edu email address. Sunday Ticket typically goes for $49.99 per month but you can save 50% if you are a student (or know one kind enough to help you out). That drops the price down to $100 for the full season. You’ll be able to stream any out-of-market game on your Xbox One, Sony PlayStation 4, Roku, laptop, tablet or phone and now the 4th Generation Apple TV. Just head over to this landing page to lock-in your discounted pricing with an eligible .edu address.

The new NFL Sunday Ticket live streaming service is a welcome addition for out-of-market football fans that can’t catch their favorite team on CBS or Fox. But at $359 for the top-of-the-line package, this Colts fan is left thinking how to save some money.

Turns out, DirecTV also offers a discounted package for eligible students. For $100, you’ll be able to stream any out-of-market game on your Xbox One, Sony PlayStation 4, Roku, laptop, tablet or phone. That means you can watch Andrew Luck throw touchdowns from nearly anywhere without breaking the bank.

Looks like I’ll be pursuing another degree.

As part of its 4-day Memorial Day Sale, Best Buy is taking $150 off each of the current generation 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac desktop computers, which brings the entry-level iMac down to $1,149.99 with free shipping.
