Apparently if you show your college ID at Goodwill, you get 10 percent off your purchase!

I was pleasantly surprised to learn this today while picking up a few winter things for my upcoming move.   It’s a good thing I still look like a youngin’ or else she would have never thought to offer it to me.

I asked if this was a new deal and the saleswoman said it had been around a while.

So how come I’d never heard of this before? I raided all the Goodwills in Gainesville for warm work clothes to wear on my mission trip last year. Maybe the stores in college towns/near schools don’t offer the discount?

For those of you seeking an even better deal, Goodwill has a list of bargain-hunting tips.
