We’ve found that there is currently no AO student discount in the UK. This also means no Unidays AO code or one with Student Beans or NUS Totum. However, we’ve been doing the research and found lots of ways that students can still save. The best tip we have is new users that sign up to a free account get a £10 discount on orders over £299.


Another great tip is to head to the AO deals page. It’s a permanent page on ao.com and it breaks down the deals into helpful sections such as laptops, smart tech and TVs.


We’ve also got a great £20 voucher code off selected Breville toasters and kettles.

And if you’re looking for a new laptop, their laptops page has savings of up to £90.


Through our research we’ve also found other great ways students can save money including:

  • Free delivery
  • Price match guarantee
  • Up to 50% in the AO deals page
  • Buy now pay 6 months later on items over £200
  • £10 AO Voucher for New Account Sign-ups
  • Free 100 days return
  • Up to £90 off selected laptops

Appliances Online or AO.com as it has come to be known is now one of the UK’s biggest retailers. They have a great range of:

  • appliances
  • electricals
  • laptops
  • tvs
  • smart tech
  • mobile phones
  • a new washing machine

“TOP TIP. If you’re a new customer, sign up to an ao.com account and you’ll get £10 off spends over £299″


At the moment there is no AO student discount. However, see our savings section to get a £10 voucher. This means that there is no permanent code that students can access to get a discount such as 10%, 15% or even as much as 25% off.

It also means that AO is not listed on Unidays, NUS Totum or Student Beans. It’s a pity as it’s a tried and tested way for students to save on essential items such as laptops.

However, this doesn’t mean that students still can’t save. Check out our savings section at the top of the page which is regularly updated with the best current ways to save at ao.com and read the rest of this guide for more information on vouchers and sales which could also save you more.
