Get cheaper Apple products if you are a student — 2022

It is a reality that students do not have a very high purchasing power, and the acquisition of technological products can be a challenge due to their high price. That is why Apple makes available to these groups the possibility of acquiring an iPad or a Mac with a small discount, justifying this educational conduct in advance. In this article we tell you all the details to be able to access this student Store.

Requirements to access these discounts

In the event that you want to access these discounts, you obviously have to meet some important requirements. All of these pursue as long as you have the right to have to pay less money for your products as long as you are going to dedicate yourself to an educational task.

Being in a university, and being able to prove it

These student discounts are designed above all for those who are university students or are pursuing higher education. But this academic condition must be able to be demonstrated correctly and this is not done initially with the registration. At any university, when you obtain this condition, you receive a institutional email address and it has a domain that normally corresponds to the acronym of the university, such as '@estudiant.uib.es'.

This is an essential requirement to be able to demonstrate your condition in the purchase process. Although, it is not limited only to being a student since teachers also have the right as well as any person who has some kind of relationship with the teaching activity from a university. That is why on Apple's own website it is detailed that these discounts are for purchases at the university in general.

Sign up for UNiDAYS

When it comes to proving that you are in a university studying, Apple uses the service of UNiDAYS . In other words, they hire an external company to be able to carry out this verification, not wanting to do it themselves by compiling the academic documents. That is why the second requirement to take into account is to have a UNiDAYS account and to have your involvement with the university verified.

Whenever you need to check the prices you have in the Apple Store for university, you must first log in to UNiDAYS. It is for the rest that the process in the end is quite simple to carry out in order to buy with this type of discount. The only thing that must be taken into account is that in order to be registered, the previous requirement must be met and the student who is in a lower degree is not valid in any case.

What you should know about UNiDAYS

As we say, access to UNiDAYS must be mastered in order to have access to all these discounts. We tell you below everything you need to know about this platform that goes beyond the Apple company.

What is UNiDAYS?

UNiDAYS is in a very simple way a web page that offers different discounts. As soon as you enter you can find an interesting division between different types of products, from clothing to technology. The 'problem' you have is that you are It is intended only for university students that they have an institutional email address that is used in the registration process.

As we have mentioned before, this website, in addition to managing Appel discounts, can also find other relevant brands. Among them you can find Samsung, Google, Adobe but beyond technology there are also clothing brands such as Adidas. In the end, it acts like other websites that also collect discounts in third-party stores and manage all these offers but aimed at a really specific and very niche audience who may be interested in this type of product.

how can you register

On the UNiDAYS website itself, which can be accessed from the Apple website, there is a space dedicated to registration. In this you must indicate all your personal data as well as the email and the password that you want to determine to be able to log in later. Once you have passed this requirement you must fill in more information related mainly to the institution in which you are studying . The truth is that they have a fairly large database with all the universities available in Spanish territory and there are also agreements with foreign institutions. In addition to the name of the university, you must also enter the number of years your degree lasts and how many you have been at the university.

Once you have entered this information you will be able to choose different verification systems. The most common of them is being redirected to the moodle platform of the university in question where the virtual teaching task is carried out, such as uploading different contents. But if your university does not have a moodle platform, it is also possible to verify through the institutional email. The website will ask for your email address with the university's domain. When verifying that it is correct, it will send an email with a link that verifies the account in general, having to access this account to verify that it is yours.

Once this process has been done, you will be able to access this account that you have created to enjoy all the discounts that it has on the different websites that it offers. Keep in mind that the institution in which you are enrolled must always be renewed annually since, as is logical, over time you can be out of the university from one year to the next, so periodically it will request this verification.

University Apple Store

Some relevant absences can be seen in the list, such as the iPhone. In this case, Apple does not consider this equipment essential for educational tasks. This does not happen with the Mac or the iPad, which can be used comfortably when taking notes, but the iPhone or the Apple Watch are not among these types of products in relation to education.

Access to the University Apple Store

Keep in mind that to access these products you have to enter a special part of the Apple Store. This is where the necessary credentials will be requested in UNiDAYS so that the purchase of all the products that we have previously mentioned can be made correctly at a reduced price. This section is at the end of which part of Apple where it specifically says 'Shopping for college'. Upon entering you will see that you are asked to link through UNiDAYS.

At the moment you will be able to choose the characteristics that you want and obviously here the price will vary, although the discount on large equipment is normally around 100 euros. The purchase process is generally identical to that of the traditional Store and the delivery times are also the same. The only real difference is the price.
