Those sweet, sweet deals

With the excitement of a new school year comes the fresh smell of new backpacks, books and pens, and with football season rearing its head, SUU gear and red shirts quickly hit the top of students’ wishlists.

The SUU Bookstore, located in between the rotunda and the centrum, offers all this and more, and the first week or two of the new semester comes with deals and discounts.

The biggest discount slashes the prices of backpacks, whose prices drop 20 percent on brands like Jansport, Ogio, Dakine and Under Armour.

Student Saving Cards are sold at the front of the store for $25, and offer discounts on services and restaurants in Cedar City and St. George. Deals include freebies to places like Chick-fil-a and Firehouse Subs. The cards expire in a year and have over 100 deals.

Game day shirts, the official red shirt of football games, are sold in various sizes for $10, and are only sold before and during football season. Each year the shirts change designs, so if students want the 2017 game day shirt, they need to pick it up quickly.

In addition to these limited time deals, the SUU Bookstore is also an authorized dealer of Apple products, and can offer education prices and tax free Apple products, including iPads and MacBooks. Currently with a purchase of Macs and iPad Pros, students will also receive a pair of free Beats headphones until September 25.

Textbooks are on the bottom level of the bookstore and can offer quick access to textbook purchases, a benefit Amazon and Chegg cannot offer. Textbook refunds are offered in full the first four days of class with a receipt, but a drop slip is needed in addition at any point after that.

The SUU Bookstore also has Hydroflasks, a popular water bottle company, and Leuchtturm1917 notebooks, a brand known as an alternative to Moleskine notebooks, available for purchase
