As a college student, you're probably constantly scouring places for deals. To minimize your efforts (so college), you've probably subscribed to Groupon, LivingSocial, or another site similar to the two. You may be subscribed in multiple cities too, depending on your current (college) location and your permanent (home) location. With all of this search for savings, it can sometimes be difficult to find a deal relevant to you.
