University is expensive, so any savings you can make are always useful. As most courses require some kind of computer, or at least a smartphone, this can be one of the more costly things you’ll need to buy.. if you don’t already have a suitable one, that is. Thankfully, Samsung has a Student Discount initiative that can help cut the price you pay so you can put the savings towards something important, like gigs or nights out. Or maybe food.
The best news is that if you’re in the UK the disounts aren’t just for students, as Samsung has now expanded the scheme to include anyone between the ages of 16-25, whether you’re at college, university, working or taking time out to plan your next move.
The Samsung Education Offers Program in the USA is limited to students only, but still has plenty of great offers for those pursuing their studies, so it does seem to be true that it pays to stay in school.
Here’s how to sign up to the Samsung Student and Youth Discounts scheme and Samsung Education Offers Program and save money.
What is the Samsung Student and Youth Discount scheme?
The Samsung Student and Youth Discount scheme is a program in the UK for those between the ages of 16-26, whether you are in further education or not. It gives you money off a wide range of Samsung products. At the time of writing these included 10% off the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and 10% off the Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra, which is currently at the top of our best student laptop chart.
You can also trade in smartphones, tablets and smartwatches to get a discount. It doesn’t have to be Samsung’s own devices: you can trade in Apple, Google, OnePlus, Xiaomi and others. Just go to the Trade-In page and give Samsung the details of the device you want to use. Then you’ll get a quote back straight-away.
How do I sign up to the Samsung Student and Youth Discount scheme?
It’s easy to get registered, as you just need to visit the Samsung Student and Youth Discount page and either click the I’m aged 16-26 or I’m a student button.
If you’re the former, then you’ll need to provide proof of your age. The site accepts a driving licence/photo ID or passport. Once you’ve provided this, you’ll be able to sign up and buy reduced products from the site.
If you’re a student, then you can either sign up through UniDays, you’ll also need to use your education email address. All the instructions are provided on the site.
What is the Samsung Education Offers Program?
This is an equivalent student discount program that runs in the USA. One thing to note though is that it doesn’t include non-students. Samsung has some quite generous offers coming and going on the site, with up to 30% off the prices of its products. It’s also open to teachers too, so it’s not just students that get all the great deals.
As with the UK site, you’re able to trade in old devices to get a further discount on the new ones you want to buy.
