Other Ways to Save at JCPenney

While JCPenney doesn’t have a student discount, there are a few other ways to save at the store. These include:

  • JCPenney Rewards Program: This program lets you earn points when you shop; you get a $10 reward for every 200 points you earn.
  • JCPenney Credit Card: Cardholders are automatically enrolled in the rewards program, earn rewards points twice as fast as other members, and receive other perks such as special savings days.
  • Price matching: If you find a lower price for an identical item at another retailer within 14 days of purchasing the item at JCPenney, you can bring your receipt and the competitor’s ad to a JCPenney store. JCPenney will price match and give you an extra 5% discount.
