Okay, so let me let you in on a little secret I just discovered. After attending Oakland University for four years, I realized that our GrizzCard holds more power than I thought it did. I’ve only ever used it if I needed while taking an exam or at a wēpa printing station. Never did I associate it with many perks — until now. Listed below are 10 restaurants students can get a discount at, from 10 percent off your order to free drinks.

1.)    Buffalo Wild Wings

Also known as BDubs, Buffalo Wild Wings is famous for its traditional wings. The sports bar and casual dining restaurant offers OU students 10 percent off their entire order with their GrizzCard ID present.

2.)    burgrz

burgrz is a gourmet style, yet fast, casual restaurant that offers fresh 100 percent Angus beef burgers, hot dogs and sides. OU students get 10 percent off their order with a GrizzCard ID present.

Good ol’ TGI Fridays. We all know this one or have at least heard of it. But if you haven’t (which worries me a little) Friday’s is a casual restaurant chain that offers a variety of classic American foods. OU students get 20 percent off their order with a GrizzCard ID present. Nothing causal about that!

    I’ve also found out that with your ID a OU student can get 10% off at Applebee’s on Squirrel Road next to TGI Fridays.
