Whether online or in person, thousands of students are currently getting back in the swing of things and that means back to schools shopping. While shopping for a Chromebook is a massive undertaking thanks to high demand and short supply, there are still devices to be found and you can save some cash if you shop retailers that offer student and education discounts. This can be a big money saver if you’re in the market for supplies, PC accessories and gear to get you or your student on their way back to the classroom. We’ve rounded up some retailers that offer student and teacher discounts when you verify your affiliation with a qualifying EDU institution.

I wasn’t aware, until recently, that Samsung had a discount program but they do and the savings are huge if you’re a teacher, student, first responders, military and more. Qualifying shoppers can grab as much as 30% off when you shop on Samsung.com. With the current sale on the Galaxy Chromebook, a student discount would save you an extra $119.85 when you buy the ultra-premium 10th Gen Intel convertible and that’s on top of the $200 that Samsung already took off of the MSRP. The 30% savings applies to most products from Samsung and shoppers can also add an additional 10% discount to many sale items. Check out the program below.
Lenovo could honestly be your one-stop-shop for everything tech and gear-related if you wanted to get all your shopping done in one fell swoop. Sadly, the PC giant is suffering a massive shortage on Chromebooks but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t money to be saved. Students and teachers can sign up and complete a quick verification via ID.me and BOOM, instantly get a site-wide 8% discount on anything and everything Lenovo offers.
You’ll find a lot more than just PCs on Lenovo’s site. The offer Assistant-enabled smart displays, backpacks, PC accessories and you can even grab cool tech like a new FitBit or an Xbox One. On top of the student discounts, you can get cash back every day on Lenovo.com when you shop with Rakuten. That cash adds up quick when you’re shopping for tech.
Speaking of one-stop-shops, Student Beans if probably the most well-known place to go when you’re looking for student deals.
