Dealspotr’s Couponing in College Scholarship

Hi! I’m Rachel, from Dealspotr. We’re a startup in Santa Monica, CA, dedicated to connecting shoppers and influencers to the brands they love. Each semester, we run our Couponing in College scholarship.

This scholarship is designed to engage and inform students about the power of saving money, and see what modern couponing and budgeting tricks they use to save in their daily life (for example: an app that gives you discounts to popular stores just for attending class!).

We summarize the best tips in a major bi-annual blog post that we promote to students around the nation. This post offers great savings advice to help college students do more with less while in school, and is read by thousands of students.

Last year’s Fall scholarship went very well – you can see some of the amazing money saving tips submitted by students around the nation in last year’s winner announcement and tip round-up.

We’re kicking off our Fall 2018 scholarship this week, and we’d love it if you could share our application form with your students. You can find the form here:
