Dear 100 Hour Board,

I found the coupon on http://www.utexas.edu/hr/edp/employee/view.php?id=768 that provides a good discount for the online automotive accessories superstore http://www.carid.com/. Can I use it if I am not the student of this university? Will they be asking me for some identification to proove that I am?..

A: Dear Wdeexp,

As far as I can tell, all they ask for is a coupon code. (I didn't actually try it.) So technically, even if you aren't faculty or staff at UT Austin, you could get the discount. However, it's not ethical.
