We all enjoy a little extra savings, but to college students it’s even more important to save money wherever you can. Check out these great  student deals in the Boston area to help you save cash on your next night out. Note that all discounts are applied when showing a valid college student ID.

FiRE+iCE College Night:

On Monday nights, college students are able to enjoy an unlimited buffet for $10.99. The buffet experience at FiRE+iCE is unlike any other, allowing you to choose the freshest ingredients and have your meal cooked to order right in front of you on the restaurant’s hibachi-style grill. Within walking distance of Newbury Street and the Boston Public Library, FiRE+iCE is located at 205 Berkeley Street in Boston.

Margaritas Mexican Restaurant:

Margaritas is already a Lasell hotspot on Thursday nights, so make sure to take advantage of the College Night deal. Every Thursday, college students can save 10 percent on any entrée when showing a valid college ID. Margaritas is located at 211 Moody Street in Waltham.

Prudential Shopping:
