All Penn State students know that you can get discounts on food when you eat at on-campus locations like the dining halls. Although these discounts can be useful when all you want is a good, ole’ fashioned West cookie, specific LionCash “merchants of the month” also offer special discounts to LionCash users. Here are the merchants to hit up in this last week of January:


FREE chips and salsa with the purchase of an entrée when using LionCash+. Because who doesn’t love free chips and salsa?

Baby’s Burgers and Shakes

$1.99 milkshakes (!!) when paying with LionCash+. For anyone who has not tried Baby’s milkshakes yet – highly recommended.

FREE chips and salsa with the purchase of an entrée when using LionCash+. Again, if you don’t like free chips and salsa you are probably not a college student.

Pita Pit

FREE 22 oz. soda and a bag of chips when paying with LionCash+. One of State College’s hidden gems that is actually good for you (shocker, I know). If you’re a falafel lover, The Robinson pita is suggested to accompany your free chips and drink.

West Food District

10% off Food Services prepared items and fountain beverages when paying with LionCash+. They have a PB&J bar. Enough said.

Take advantage of these great deals and use your LionCash+ whenever you venture out to get food outside of Findlay Commons for the remainder of January. Keep an eye out for new deals every month!
