Back to school sales are great, but college students ​may be able to save even more.

At Banana Republic, J.Crew and Madewell stores, show a student ID card and get a 15 percent discount. Apple will take $200 off your purchase either in the store or online, if you have a student ID or acceptance letter.

With many online retailers you have to join a student discount program. One called UNIDays is free. The Student Advantage Discount card is $22 for the first year. But you might be able to make that back with all of the savings you can get with it.
