Dell is one of the biggest desktop and laptop computer companies in the world, and they offer a number of services to students, including price matching and special financing options. If you're looking for a Dell student discount code, you can get them through Unidays and save yourself about 10 percent on your purchase of a Dell laptop for school.

Who is Eligible For the Dell Student Discount?

Unidays has a couple of requirements that you need to meet if you want to take advantage of their Dell student discount codes. To qualify for this discount, you must be:

  • At least 16 years old
  • Currently enrolled at a college or university
  • Access to either a .edu email issued by your school, or a credit card style student ID from your school

Parents can't sign up for their children, so students younger than 16 are unable to use this discount even if they are enrolled at a qualifying school.

What Does the Dell Student Discount Get You?

The Dell student discount typically provides you a 10 percent discount on Dell products, above and beyond whatever other deals Dell is running at the time. This amount can change from time to time, so make sure to check Unidays to see what the current offer is before you make a decision.

Coupon codes are generated through Unidays and then applied in the shopping cart on Dell's site after verifying that you are a student, so you won't see the discount reflected in prices on the Dell website prior to checkout.

How Does Dell Verify Student Enrollment?

Dell student discount coupon codes are available through Unidays, which is a company that verifies your enrollment as a student. This service is able to verify enrollment at most four year universities and colleges, and manual verification is available for many schools that aren't already in the system.

This same service is used by a lot of other big companies, so signing up once can grant you access to a variety of student discounts from companies other than Dell.

How to Sign Up for the Dell Student Discount

Since you use Unidays to obtain Dell student discount coupon codes, you need to sign up for Unidays to get your discount. The signup process requires you to verify your enrollment at a qualifying school. Once you've successfully set up and verified your Unidays account, you can use it to generate coupon codes.

Unidays partners with a lot of big name retailers like Apple, so signing up will provide you with a lot of discounts beyond Dell.

Here's how to get set up with Unidays so that you will be able to take advantage of the Dell student discount:

How to Use Your Dell Student Discount

The Dell student discount uses Unidays to generate one-time-use coupon codes. To take advantage of this, you need to use Unidays to generate a code, and then apply the code in your Dell shopping cart.

    This code only works once, and it expires after a short amount of time.

  4. On the Dell website, locate a laptop or desktop that you want to buy. When you reach the checkout page, enter your coupon code and verify your discount. If the discount doesn't apply, try generating a new code. If that doesn't work, contact Unidays for additional support.
