Apple Education Store Guide

Did you know that students, lecturers and teachers can buy cheap Macs with a great discount or get a subscription with 50% off to Apple Music? If not, it is time to learn how to get those discounts.

By the way, I have recently found a cool app for Mac called Setapp, subscription to which allows me to save money and access more than 100 popular Mac apps. Try it too (Setapp it’s free for Download).

Take advantage of special Apple’s discount for everyone involved in education and save money. Here are the official pages of:

Students make a great market for the company, so Apple has distinguished the whole store with discounts for them. They offer students even gadgets with good discounts.
Many Apple users hardly know about this special education store, however, the education net is so wide that you may be the part of it too! So why not to get a Mac with a discount?


Who Can Use Apple’s Education Discount?

Everyone who works in the educational field can get this kind of discount. It doesn’t mean that only students or lecturers can get it. Administrative staff and other members of educational institutions who work at schools, colleges and universities can use this advantage.
Parents of pupils and students can’t use the discount themselves, but can purchase something for their children from the Apple store.

Apple just notes that everything bought from their education store should be used for personal (non commercial) purposes and couldn't be resold.

If you haven’t found yourself in the list of those who can grab a discount, and if you still want to spent less money on Apple devices, try visiting Apple Refurbished store. The prices are lower there, and it is available to everyone!


How to Get a Student Discount from Apple

Depending on where you live, visit either Apple’s US or UK education store I linked above.
In the US, you don’t need some specific evidence for using education store. Still, Apple can request such an evidence from you at any time, even after the purchase. They will charge a fee from you in case you don’t upload the evidence in time.
In the UK, use your UNiDAYS to access the discounted education store. You need to sign up, it ordinary takes a couple of minutes. As soon as you prove your identity, you have the access to Apple’s education store.

If you are an employee who purchases Macs for students, visit Apple Store for Schools and Apple Store for Universities. Every site needs you to be registered. As an option, you can contact Apple by phone: 0800 912 0207.

In general, shopping in the education store is similar to common store, the only difference is the pricing.Be ready to provide a proof that you are involved in education and try to log in from the university network. If you are a student, but don’t want to handle that online, visit offline Apple store , call the support team or use the online chat.


What Discounts Are There?

Apple doesn’t have specific % discounts but offers various discounts for each their product range. At the moment, they have discounts for Macs (iMac, MacBook Pro and Air and Mac Mini) and iPads. There are no discounts for the other rande of Apple products.
Keep in mind that the size of a discount may differ in the US and the UK stores, as in the first one a student can get a $20 discount for an iPad while in the UK, Apple offers a £59 discount for the same iPad.
