Apple doesn8217;t do discounts on its website but that doesn8217;t mean you can8217;t get money off. School and college students, teachers, lecturers, non-teaching staff and even parents of students can get a series of discounts on a range of Apple products and services. This amounts to some decent savings on everything from iMacs and MacBooks to Apple Music and apps for those heading back to school.
How you get the discount varies depending on where you8217;re based, and there isn8217;t one set amount off – it varies from product to product – but there are some great deals to be had. Through Apple8217;s education portal, you can also get special deals. Right now, for instance, when you buy certain Mac and iPad products you get AirPods for free.
To help you along the way, we8217;ve rounded up some of the best Apple deals for students below, as well as how you get them. It8217;s worth checking retail prices online, from the likes of Best Buy and Amazon, as sometimes their reductions will be even greater – especially if you8217;re willing to look at older models.
Getting student discounts at Apple in the US is relatively easy. You just need to go to the Apple Education Store (opens in new tab) and you8217;ll be presented with all of the discounted prices – though you8217;ll need to go back and forth from the main store to work out the savings. There is a separate option for schools that requires you to create a school account, so if you8217;re a teacher or parent, it8217;s worth checking to see if your school has a log-in.
Most purchases don8217;t require proof at the time of order but you could be asked for it afterwards. The small print also says that, if you8217;re unable to prove eligibility, you may be charged the difference. So, where possible use your student or education email address.
To get student discounts at Apple in the UK, you need to register with UniDays to be verified. Go to the UK Apple Education Store (opens in new tab) and follow the link through to UniDays where you8217;ll need to verify your student or staff identification.
