Hey there! It's Back to School season, which means that freshmen / new teachers all across the nation are getting their squeaky clean .edu addresses. There are dozens of stores that offer discounted or free merchandise with a valid .edu email address!

Note -- alumni might also be eligible for an .edu email! Contact your institution for more information to see if you're eligible. 

There used to be ways to spoof a college email address, but they haven't worked for quite some time. Please do not discuss getting a fake .edu email address in this thread

On to the savings! These are listed in alphabetical order, with the hottest deals in bold. Did I miss something? Let me know in the comments below!
