How to Use Your Best Buy Student Discount
Unlike a lot of student discounts, the Best Buy student discount isn’t automatic. It only applies to specific items, and it functions more like a coupon that you have to clip and turn in than a regular discount.
The basic process requires you to use the Member Offers page to find an item that’s eligible for the discount, add that item to your cart, and then click the Apply button during checkout actually to receive the discount.
What Does the Best Buy Student Discount Get You?
The Best Buy student discount provides you with access to deep discounts on computers, televisions, and various other electronics. There is no standard discount amount, but you can typically expect to save hundreds of dollars on big-ticket items like computers and televisions.
How Does Best Buy Verify Student Enrollment?
Best Buy uses an identity verification service called SheerID to verify that you’re enrolled where you say you’re enrolled. This is the same service used by Amazon, Spotify, Nike, and many other big names. So if you’ve signed up for an Amazon or Spotify student discount already, you’re ready to go for a Best Buy student discount.
When SheerID isn’t able to automatically verify your enrollment, it allows you to upload supporting documentation.
What Happens to Your Student Discount When You Graduate?
The Best Buy student discount is only available if you’re enrolled at an accredited school. If you graduate or leave school for any reason, you’re no longer eligible for the discount. Unlike other companies that provide student discounts, Best Buy doesn’t have a specific procedure in place to force you to reverify your eligibility on a regular schedule.
If Best Buy does ask you to reverify and you are no longer enrolled at a qualifying college or university, your account will be downgraded to a regular member account. Best Buy members still receive special deals and offer each month, but they are not eligible for additional student discounts.
