Best Student Tech Deals

Kitty Grant December 29, 2021

Let’s face it, it’s 2022, we can’t live without tech. No matter what old people may say, it’s not a
choice to have at the very least a laptop, tablet, or smartphone, especially when at university, but
these things aren’t cheap. Fortunately, lots of tech companies offer student discounts to help take
the edge off the often eye-watering prices so here are a few of the best deals.


Apple don’t offer a blanket discount across their line, instead, their student discount is only on
laptops and tablets (and Apple Music, but we’ll get to that later). Currently Apple are offering 10%
off laptops and tablets, but sometimes this changes to a free pair of AirPods when you purchase
either of those. To verify, just use UNiDAYS.


Like Apple, Samsung have opted for student deals on specific products and categories rather than
a blanket discount on everything. Current offers include 15% off smartphones and 30% off Galaxy
Buds. Verify through Unidays or Student Beans (it’s worth checking out both because some of their
deals are a little different).


Dell are currently offering 10% off monitors, 20% off accessories, and 5% off their Inspiron laptops
via Students Beans. Lenovo’s current offerings include 25% off Chromebooks and 15% off Yoga notebooks
through UNiDAYS. Acer are currently offering 15% off everything with a code from UNiDAYS.


If you want to get some new headphones to cancel out your noisy neighbours, check out Bose,
who are offering £25 off when you spend £100. Get the code from Student Beans .
Phone and Broadband Contracts


Three have a range of discounts on phone contracts with and without the device. Some of the best
include 12GB data for £8pm, unlimited data for £16pm, and a 128GB iPhone 13 Pro with 100GB
data for £51pm (and £49 upfront). Check out all their deals at UNiDAYS.


BT’s broadband offers include 36MB for £27.99pm and 67MB for £33.99pm, both of which are 9-
month contracts, perfect if you won’t be in your student house over summer. Take a look at all their
deals through UNiDAYS.

Amazon Prime

Prime comes with two main benefits: free next day delivery, and Prime Video, which includes
thousands of movies and TV shows. Students get the first 6 months free and then 50% off after the
free trial, making the plan £3.99pm. Verify through Student Beans.


If you want to impress that hot film buff you know (or you are that hot film buff) Mubi is a great
place to start, with a catalogue of foreign and indie films, including Portrait of a Lady on Fire and
First Cow. Sign up with your university email to get a 30-day free trial and then £5.99pm

Apple Music

Apple Music offers a student plan for £4.99pm after a 30-day free trial. This offer also includes
Apple TV+, which gives you access to shows such as Ted Lasso and Mythic Quest. Verify via


Spotify’s student plan is £5.99pm for Spotify Premium after the one-month free trial has ended.


Even better than cheap is free, and many Universities offer free Office 365 to all students, which
gives you access to essentials like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. Check if you’re eligible here.


Students get 10% off My Nintendo Store online, with free delivery over £20 with a code from
Student Beans.


VPNs are a great way to protect your private data when using public WiFi (like, say, the library) but
more importantly, they give you access to streaming services’ global catalogues. NordVPN is
offering an extra 15% off their 2-year plan with a code from UNiDAYS.


If you’re interested in graphic design or photography, an Adobe plan is a must-have, especially if
you want to make a career of it, but it can be prohibitively expensive for a lot of students. Adobe
are offering 60% off Creative Cloud Subscriptions for students making the plan £16.24pm, which
will give you access to applications such as Photoshop and InDesign.


The camera company are offering 10% off their online store for students with a code from UNiDAYS.

Music Magpie

Students get an extra 10% cash when they sell CDs, games, books, phones and more through
Music Magpie when using a code from Student Beans.
