    I don't think it's too bad. I would probably do it if desperate enough. Tbh though rn I'm too afraid to ask if they have a student discount unless it's obvious because I don't want to be rejected lol.

    Using my student id to acquire discounts and benefits after I graduate? Absolutely not.

    I used it after I graduated, when I was studying for my board exam, and prior to my first job.

    Depends on what I was using it to do. If to sneak into one of the dorms to steal something or harass someone, then no. If to sneak into the library to look at a book that isn't in the public library, or get a discount as in your example, then yes - I don't consider that wrong.

    Whether or not you're currently a student seems too much like semantics for me to actually care ethically about using an ID card for my own personal gain. If I could get away with it, I'd do it everytime and never think twice about it.

    The discounts are meant to help out those in need and are usually indirectly financed by the taxpayer and/or those paying full price.

    For context: In my country universities are tuition-free. So it's not like you paid a fortune to earn the status of "student" and no have to "get the most out of it". Museums etc that offer a discount to students usually also offer it to the unemployed, the disabled and the retired. So if you are fresh out of uni and still looking for your first job, you might still get some of those discounts anyway.

    This.
    I think that here they cancel your card right after you are finished with education.

    In my experience, the account is usually kept open at least 1-2 years afterwards for alumni status in America. And here, it can cost anywhere between $10K-$60K+ a year for university.

    Well, for that amount of money I would perhaps abuse it as well. Since university simply isn't worth that kind of money in my book.
