Hi everyone,

Just ran across something that may be of use to many of us!  Looks like we're qualified to get discounts on a lot of stuff as UNM students.  Here's a quick rundown of a few.  Sorry that I don't have details on everything, but it seems like some of these are probably worth investigating, to say the least!

I'll cut to the chase.  Lots of companies are willing to give student discounts, and the easiest way for them to verify your student status online is by using your .edu email (either Salud or UNM seems to work).

Follow this [link] to see our spreadsheet, which so far has discount (or other benefit) info for:

  • DropBox
  • Prezi
  • Amazon Prime
  • Verizon
  • AT&T
  • Sprint
  • Other assorted discounts (gyms, vision exams, oil changes)

For example, it appears that the discounts from the phone companies may be as much as 10-18% off your current monthly bill.

Unfortunately, SMRT still needs you to read the fine print for yourself to determine your eligibility, but hopefully these links will give you a head start.  Make sure to check back every so often, as we'll try to keep this spreadsheet updated as new discounts come to our attention.

Wishing everyone well,


Fine print / disclaimer: Since we're not fluent in legal-ese, SMRT won't take responsibility if you get yourself in trouble or misrepresent your student / employee status in pursuing discounts, intentionally or unintentionally.  :) 

P.S.  Let us know of other notable student discounts or if you're told that info on one of the discounts listed is incorrect!
