Top Ways to Save Money on Campus

Brought to you by Cricket Wireless

It’s rare to hear a college student complain about having too much spending money. That’s why it’s important for students to budget and live within their means while on campus. Check out our finance-savvy tips below:

1. Apply for scholarships – even when you’re already enrolled!

Continue applying for scholarships, even after you’ve started at your college/university. Apply for as many as you can and ask around for help.

2. Find the right textbook option for you.

There are plenty of ways to save. Check for rental and used options in order to save big! Ask the booksellers at your campus bookstore for their recommendations and insight.

3. Eat on campus as much as you can.

Sure, the dining hall isn’t exactly a five-star restaurant. However, constantly eating out or ordering in adds up….fast. Try new things on campus and make it work for you!

4. Cut costs when it comes to your cell phone.

Consider switching to a provider like Cricket Wireless. You’ll be free of annual contracts, but still have access to the hottest smartphones and data plans – starting at just $35 a month! Plus, you’ll experience more 4G LTE coverage than Sprint, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS.
