Student pays for most of higher education.. using insta-rebates
Need a new and creative way to pay for higher education? Say a snazzy doctoral degree, lets try erm… insta-rebates literally. According to NEWSER, an Auburn based doctoral student Jonathan Hood revealed to Business Week yesterday that he’s paid for most of his semester at University ($3,500) using instant rebates he’s obtained online, offline, and from other sources.
Hood also told the mag that he hasn’t paid his phone bill in two years, because at $95.00 a month most of his rebates cover his tuition and his cell phone bill.
