CollegeBudget.com officially launches today aiming to revolutionize student deals and lower the costs of college life for students across the nation.

The company is kicking off with Back-to-School Palooza featuring over 100 merchants lined up to give 50%+ off their services, only to college students. Since launching in private beta in March 2011, CollegeBudget has already grown to become the leading student deal site. CollegeBudget currently represents over half a million college subscribers and has already saved students over one million dollars collectively.
