Student Advantage Discount Program is a fee-based program offered by Student Advantage that provides members with savings and benefits offered through participating sponsors, both online and at merchant locations serving college campuses across the United States.
Members of the academic community (part time and full time students, high school students, undergraduate and graduate students, international students visiting, studying or working in the U.S., staff, full time and part time faculty, and administrators) who are 16 years of age or older, are eligible to purchase the Card. If you are under 18 years old, you must receive consent from your parent or guardian to be eligible. Student Advantage reserves the right to limit the availability of any Special Edition Cards to specific channels.
When you purchase Student Advantage, you must provide Student Advantage with accurate and complete information (including, but not limited to, name and shipping address), and advise SA of any changes by contacting SA Customer Service. SA will use this information to create your account and, where applicable, mail you a Card and materials. SA Mobile users will receive discounts by using their Student Advantage MyDeals app.
When you purchase online or activate Student Advantage, you will be asked to create a password to view your account. You may not select a password that violates anyone’s rights or one that, in SA’s sole discretion, SA considers offensive, improper or inappropriate. If you do so, SA may modify or delete it. When you purchase or activate your Card online or over the telephone, you will be asked to select a secret question and secret answer. Your secret answer will allow you to retrieve your password in case you forget it.
Each order is for a single student and parent only. SA does not permit the sharing of your membership, number, password, or discounts with additional persons. If SA reasonably believes that your membership is being used in any of these ways, SA reserves the right to cancel your membership rights immediately.
