30% students discount

Hi all, I have recently acquired an iPhone 6 and the guy in the O2 shop told me about the student discount. I currently attend college at night. He told me to register with o2open. I have tried this but I have had no success. It asks you for an organisation name. What does this mean? Do I need to register in an O2 shop or can I do it on line? Thanks

Typically the new iPhones are not included in the open scheme for approx 6 months.

"Are there any exceptions?
We don’t include iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Pay & Go, any non O2 Refresh tariffs or business accounts in the O2 Open scheme."

As far as I'm aware Student Discount is a separate scheme from O2 Open. Call customer service to clarify.

Re: 30% students discount

Full time students are eligible for Open Discount. The organisation name is the educational establishment that you attend.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

Hi Folly,


Students can get the discount but the store has to generate the code after checking your student id. Unfortunatly it cannot be done any other way, so you need to get back to the store. Hope this helps and u get this resolved.

Re: 30% students discount

Student Discount is a seperate part of O2 open. You need to prove that you are student. And O2 store or online customer service will give you instructions. Many other company provides student discount as long as discount seeker have valid .ac.uk email account. Hope you get sorted by O2
