Yeah, you read that right. $275 for one pair of jeans… I stumbled upon that from the Student Advantage site after I renewed my card. Whatever kiddo pays $275 for one pair of jeans better not come to me complaining that life is hard on a student’s stipend.
Since I’ve used Amtrak heavily during the past two years, during my M.A. at Penn, I’ve saved a good deal of money with the SA card (15% off the regular fare). I’m still going to use Amtrak and Greyhound during my Ph.D. at UVA so renewing makes sense for me. For people who don’t have a need like mine, I wonder just how useful the SA card is… given offerings like $275 jeans. Good grief!!
