The new uni term is a matter of weeks away and everyone’s starting to think about what they need for the year.

If you’re looking for a new laptop (or other gadgets), you can find some big discounts and deals if you know where to look.

The best student discounts (September 2018)

Disclosure: we don’t earn anything from the external links listed. They are simply the best deals we found through independent desk research.

  • Up to 20% off Lenovo with Student Beans: Lenovo is known for affordable laptops, so 20% off makes a good deal even better. You’ll also get free shipping on all orders over £50. Can’t say fairer than that.
  • 15% off gadget insurance with Protect Your Bubble: If you buy some new tech, you can get a tidy student discount on cover with Protect Your Bubble*. Not tooting our own horn or anything, but we’re an award-winning insurance provider. *Toot toot*.

Tips on getting the best price

If you can’t find what you’re after – bookmark these sites and keep an eye out for new offers:

  • Student Beans: Our go-to. They usually have a couple of exclusive gadget/tech brand discounts featured on their homepage.

…and finally

Sometimes, one-off deals can save you more money than a flat student discount so make sure to check Google Shopping first. If you’ve found a specific device, enter the product name or code and it’ll show price comparisons.
