Who doesn’t like to save money?  The starving student app is something everyone in my family buys each year, without fail...


With inflation rates hovering around 8%, people are struggling to keep more of their hard earned cash, and trying to save money wherever they can. 


One great savings tool you can use right here in St. George is the Starving Students app!! It is also available in 

  • Cache Valley
  • Davis/Weber County
  • Greenville, SC
  • Salt Lake County
  • Tooele County
  • Utah County


The Starving Student APP is only $30 and it has a great return on investment. I make my $30 back every year from savings on the APP. Another plus, is it is used for fundraising, so the fundraiser/school receives $15 back from every APP or card purchase. That’s a WIN-WIN!!


Initially, I bought this through my niece’s sports program to support her team, but now I am hooked and buy it every year.You don’t have to be a student to purchase the app. One thing I love is the estimated savings in the top right hand corner of the app.

It tracks how much you have saved using the app. This year I have already saved $100, just by using the Starving Student App at places I already shop. I also like checking out new places on the app because I know I am getting a good deal.

It is also so simple to use. Click here, and scroll to the bottom of the page.

When you are at the store that participates (they have a SSC sticker at the register ro window to show they participate) the cashier will have you click on the deal, then you slide the bar over to initiate using the coupon, and then it shows you that it is used.  Some deals have more than one use, and the app keeps track of how many uses are left on each deal.


This app has SO many deals. Here are all the categories where you can save .


The freebies section of the app has about 100 items you can get for FREE! Did I mention FREE?  Ranging from free frozen drinks to Kayak rentals, with haircuts, car washes, and food in between.

Many of the food and drink places offer tons of buy one get one free offers, or they will have percentages off or even deals with discounted prices for many items.

One thing that is really fun is taking the kids to jump parks, skating rinks, or museums and getting discounts on entry. It is something you are going to be doing with the kids anyway. Why not keep some money in your pocket?

I also like saving money on oil changes, screen repairs, and shuttle trips. This app is really so well rounded, you will save money on practically everything.

In our family, we pull up the app and see who saved the most money. At last check, my sister-in-law’s family (her husband, daughter & herself each have one) have saved over $600 using the Starving Student APP. You should definitely check it out for yourself and see how much YOU can save!!
