Getting a dell laptop or PC is an essential purchase for many people going to university or other forms of education these days. With tuition fees and the cost of living higher than ever, saving money on the technology you need will be a big help, or even make it possible. Luckily, you can save up to 15% with Dell’s student discount deal.
Not only will you need a machine to work, but it will also be a great way to keep in touch with friends and family. If you don’t need a laptop like the XPS 13, you can use the voucher code for an all-in-one, a monitor, or something else.
Who is eligible for the Dell student discount?
Before going into any details about how to get the discount, it is wise to outline who is eligible. Dell has made it pretty easy, so any college or university student, including vocational school, can get a discount. All you need is your student email and a copy of your student ID.
If, for some reason, you don’t have a student email address, you can send the application form with proof of enrollment in your course (or a scan of a student ID card) to email@example.com and once it’s verified a voucher for the discount will be issued.
Other forms of accepted verification include a school certificate or certain correspondence from the academic organisation. If unsure, contact Dell via the email address above to enquire. One thing to know: an NUS card doesn’t count as a verification document. Dell also says it’s available to “Corporate employees or Teachers & Academic staff.” and the program is available
How to get the Dell student discount code
It’s a lot easier to get Dell’s student discount than you might think. All you have to do is visit the Dell Advantage for Students website, enter your student email address then click Submit. Dell will then issue a voucher that will be sent directly to your email. This can then be used on the Dell site to make a purchase.
The coupon is available in 16 countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States and Canada.
How do I use the Dell Student Discount voucher?
Once you get the voucher, you’ll want to put it to good use. So, visit the Dell website and find the laptop, desktop or other product you want to buy. There are minimum restrictions and no minimum spend; At the time of writing, only seven ‘S’ model monitors have been dropped.
However, you can only use the discount on one unit per order – ie a single laptop. You cannot combine this with any other discount code. You add it to your shopping cart with any configuration option, then when you reach the checkout page you’ll see a box marked Promotional Code. Enter the coupon code here then click apply.
A word of caution, though. The code can only be used once, so only click the Apply button when you are sure your order is correct.
All that’s left to do after that is to fill in your details, make the payment, then your new Dell device will be with you within the next few days.
