2. IS THERE AN APPLE NUS, UNIDAYS OR STUDENT BEANS DISCOUNT?
There are a lot of student schemes and cards for discounts out there which can make things confusing when trying to get the education pricing. That’s why we’ve written this guide to let you know if the Apple education store is included so you don’t miss out on getting your discounts for your new mac computers and Macbook Air.
APPLE NUS DISCOUNT?
Now the answer to this is yes and no! So if you are an NUS student you will be attending a university so you will qualify for the discount on the Apple education store and save on that Mac or iPad. Also if you’re in a store your NUS card should qualify you too, although it states that you should also have a letter of acceptance too. However, there is no official student code NUS through nus.org.uk or any NUS Extra voucher code either. We hope that’s cleared it up.
APPLE & UNIDAYS?
Yes, there is an Apple Unidays discount. To get it, head to the Apple student page and follow the instructions. You’ll be issued with a Unidays code for you to enter and unlock the education pricing store so you can bag those lovely discounts as described in chapter 1.
ARE THERE APPLE STUDENT BEANS DISCOUNTS?
Nope, there is no association between Student Beans and Apple education. This is unfortunate in the squirrel’s humble opinion as it would be a great way to get a customer for life! And keep reading on for some more excellent tips on how to save!GET DISCOUNT >

5. STORE OVERVIEW & BUYERS GUIDE
You either love them and use their products religiously or you hate them and purposely opt for competitors, but either way, you’ve heard of them and you feel passionate about them. They are, of course, Apple and the eye-catching Apple Store, with one of the top UK student discounts.
The world’s largest information technology company, Apple is now recognised for its phones, tablets and smartwatches just as much as it is for its computers. Physical devices aside, the company also owns and manages iTunes, Apple TV, Safari, iOS and macOS. The level of brand loyalty the company enjoy from its fans is almost evangelical, and its marketing, as a result, is extremely highly scrutinised, anticipated and almost frenzied when you see the queues outside an Apple store. Apple is one of few brands worldwide that is recognisable from a logo without its name on it and its worldwide revenue totalled $229billion in 2017. That’s quite something, hey? As you’d expect with the nature of a tech company, most of Apple’s business is done and all of their products are available to buy online, but there are Apple shops worldwide; each easily recognisable for its minimalist design and ‘Genius Bar’ where Apple customers can seek help and advice on the use of their various devices. There are currently 499 bricks-and-mortar stores across 22 countries, and hundreds more of authorised resellers. Apple is a brand you’ll find in almost every relevant electrical or tech retailer, too. However, it rarely discounts or holds sales – so if you’re hoping for a January bargain, you’ll need to look to high street chain retailers rather than Apple themselves.
The price points may seem hefty, but they’re worth it for the quality of products and iconic design (such as the Macbook Air, Mac or iPad), and many of the devices interact with each other to give you a seamless experience no matter how you’re accessing your information on an Apple product. Right now, more than one billion Apple products are in use across the globe – and a high percentage of customers own and use more than one.
