Back-to-school shopping—whether your child is in grade school or college—can be exciting, but it can also put a dent in your bank account. To reduce some of the financial stress, I found several stores that offer discounts and special offers exclusively for students and their families. By shopping at these stores, I find that my family can save at least 10% every time at checkout.

 1. Best Buy

Students save big on select items at Best Buy. For example, you can save $150 on iMacs, $70 on select printers and $75 on Surface 2 tablets. Just enter your .edu e-mail address on Best Buy's website and you'll be e-mailed coupons, special offers and promotional codes!

2. Apple

Students and teachers (even home school teachers) can score amazing deals on Apple products just for being a student or school employee! Even parents of college students are eligible for these deals. Just enter the name of your school here and start saving! For example, you can get a MacBook Air for $849, (it normally retails for $899)!

3. Dell

Students have access to exclusive deals and discounts on and in participating Dell stores. In addition to these amazing deals, students can currently get a free Dell tablet when they purchase a PC of $699 or more at Dell. Students can also get free one-year support for phones, free accidental damage coverage and free in-home service.

4. Top Shop

Students can save big when shopping for back-to-school clothing, accessories and shoes at Top Shop. Every student receives a 10% discount (which is good all year long) when she shows her student ID to the cashier at checkout. You can also score the 10% discount when you enter your student advantage card number at checkout.

5. Sam's Club

Save at Sam's Club when buying back-to-school necessities including computer gear, school supplies, clothing and groceries. Head to your local Sam's Club and sign up for the Collegiate Membership, which only costs $40 (compared to the regular membership price of $45). Students will also get a $15 Sam's Club gift card just for signing up!

6. ThinkEDU

Shop at ThinkEDU to get deep discounts on all kinds of back-to-school supplies including textbooks, computer software, apparel and dorm supplies. For example, you can get a Toshiba laptop for $799—which normally retails for $999! During the checkout process, you'll have to use ThinkEDU's online verification system to verify that you are a student, but it's as easy as scanning your class schedule or student ID.
