LSU ID is ticket for money-saving opportunities

Want a discount on piercings? Or how about saving a buck at a local movie theater? Also available is a 50% discount at a local thrift store or discounted bowling. All you need to take advantage of these money-savers is your LSU ID card.

The thrift store offers a discount on Wednesdays, where, says one student, “You can find a nice polo for $5…but if you go on Wednesday, the polo will only be $2.50.”

Two local movie theaters each give students a $1 discount for any student with a college ID. On Wednesdays after 9 p.m. students can bowl for just 99 cents.

As to the piercings, a tattoo parlor takes $5 off piercings ranging from $25 to $50 for students every day of the week, excluding Wednesdays, when all piercings are $10. Even the $5 discount has brought in more business.

Said the tattoo parlor’s manager, “We’ve seen around a 30% to 40% increase in piercings sales since we started offering the discounts.”
