Discounts are there to encourage customers to buy things from stores and businesses. This means that even students that live in poverty can buy things. In a study done by the University of California,  it was estimated that during 2019, 34.0 million Americans lived in poverty. With Covid-19, we need discounts more than ever. They help to save money and to make sure we have enough to get the not only the things we need, but the things we want. There are websites out there that help high school students find great discounts.  Below is information and links about websites that help find discounts. In these challenging times, students need whatever help they can get, including with their purchases.
