In this age of economic unrest, we’re all trying to save a buck here and there. Unfortunately, Cambridge can get pretty expensive. But if you know where to look, you can find a few great discounts for Harvard students that will keep your wallet happy. FM scoured the Square for deals that will keep your savings from crashing like Harvard’s endowment:
1. Oggi’s $5 Pizza Night
Fend off those Monday blues with a mouth-watering 16” pizza pie from Oggi’s for just $5. Monday night from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. is $5 pizza pie night at Oggi’s Pizza in the Holyoke Center. You can score a 16” pizza for just five bucks (as long as you eat at the restaurant or pick up your order). Delicious and wallet-friendly? FM’s there.
2. Eastern Mountain Sports
There’s a distinct chill in the air and we Harvard students know this can only mean one thing: the dreaded Boston winter is on the way. At Eastern Mountain Sports, you can pick up North Faces, sweatshirts, and sweatpants galore, not to mention a Sigg water bottle to fit in with the “Green ‘13” movement sweeping campus—all for a hefty 15% discount with a college ID. Stop by and gear up for the winter months.
3. Cambridge Queen’s Head
Of course Harvard’s own pub in the basement of Annenberg has a fantastic discount for its students—25 cent wing night on Wednesdays. Stop by for 25 cent wings all night and fill up on these morsels of spicy, messy goodness. And the best part is, you don’t even have to leave campus.
Moral of the story? Discounts are plentiful in Harvard Square—keep your eyes peeled and you may just run into some great deals that will keep your bank account in the black. At least for now.
