Galaxy S20 Range - 20% off Education Discount in-Store @ Samsung

770

Hi guys,

I pre-ordered a S20 Ultra 512GB after being offered a 20% student discount on the entire S20 range at Samsung Chadstone. They told me I wouldn't be able to get the Buds+ as a pre-order bonus unfortunately but that I would get a 10,000mah Wireless Battery Pack for free, which is pretty cool.

Staff member told me this was running throughout all their stores. Only thing I had to do was show my student ID card or proof of enrollment and sign some forms.

Pretty sure there's something similar on the online portal but this way you get it in store on the date! Not bad :)

    Are you suggesting that you can get the 512gb ultra on release day and not the 26th of March as per samsung online?

    •  

      No the guy said they're delayed no matter where we buy it :( but at least I won't have to wait for shipping

      There should be cheaper ways to get the S20 in any format. Most of the EPPs seem to only be about 20% off the RRP but there are people selling 50% off codes for the S20 range. That would make the S20 Ultra $1124 + the cose of the code. Even if you were to buy a code for $350 you would still be saving a solid $200+

      Would definitely be worth looking through other threads or the OzB classifieds page for them.

        I see no one selling them, so where? I want one if this is true, also how do you know if its not a scam?

          If I remember correctly, I think telco employees (Telstra/Optus/etc) get 50% off codes

          •  

            @play1845: Depends I used to work for Telstra the offered a 40% off code on new releases for Samsung’s only but you had to do a bunch of training and they would send you a unique code for a 1 time use only with terms and conditions attached.
            Some savvy staff decided to sell them on release day and make a bit of a profit 😂

        everyone talks about this magical %50 off code which the giver is willing to give it for how much again? where? when? can i get one? is it like the lottery where u have to be one out of 10,000,000 ozbargainers to get one?

        • +1 vote

          The sellers are wanting 300-500 for the codes. I bit too much I think.

            @PVA: and the problem is that it is being done like a "private treaty" where you will never know the market price and may be taken for a ride.

    how many students would pay $1.8k-2.5k+ for a S20 phone… ?

  • +2 votes

    Seems a bit of an oxymoron : S20 ultra and student? Lol. If anything get s10e for 1/3 the price.

        Students tend to think powerhouse phones are needed for credit in their uni courses - social credit. In reality no-one actually cares what phone you have.

  •  

    I'm not interested in it, but if someone else wants to try..Go to Officeworks and use your education portal page to show them the $1.8k price tag, maybe they'll do 5% off and give you Galaxy Buds for pre-order as well

    Ordering it online from Samsung's Education Store gets you an additional $50 off if you sign up to their marketing material.

    Did they say when you will get it?

    I understand on the EDU portal its late March for the S20 Ultra 512gb

    It is a deal if they throw in a free 4hr financial planning consultation.

    how does a student afford an S20 ultra?

  • +3 votes

    Why are you guys so hurry? For Samsung phones, just wait couple months and the price will definitely drop a lot, lol

    • +2 votes

      That is correct but if you do.have access to educational store their pre-order discount is indeed quite generous and tend to stay competitive for quite a while.

  •  

    So basically I can go with my nephew who is a student in to a samsung store and he can purchase this for me for 20% off and a free power bank? That's a pretty good deal!

    I find it quite funny that a student can "afford", outright, a high end new phone.

    All these companies, apple, microsoft, samsung etc…. all offering % off the price. I needed a new surface pro and the model I needed for good multimedia use is 3,500+. JB offered 10% off cause I am a student which is the same discount from microsoft and im like… nah, I am not going to fork out 3k+ on a surface upgrade. I barely make 1500 a month, let alone drop 2.5 months worth of pay into a laptop.

    There's a difference between need and want in these items.

      Students have varying budgets, just like full time workers

      • +1 vote

        And if you're living at home with your parents and not paying rent, budgets are more often for:

        • Mobile
        • Clothes
        • Shoes
        • (Car if desired)

        Not many students paying rent on a one bedroom apartment in metropolitan Sydney who're financially aware and buying themselves S20 Ultras, that's for sure.

    The education discount also applies to staff. I wonder if you show the edu portal price if it applies to them too? Good way to get it on the spot.

  •  

    I'm a teacher so I can access the portal.

    Tossing up between recontracting my Telstra plan and getting the buds + 80,000 Telstra points and getting it on March 6 BUT paying 2k for the phone and its not the 512gb version…. BUT it is the grey version which I would prefer (sick of the black options)

    OR

    doing what the above user did but have to wait a month + no buds + no points…..but get the 512gb version….

    Thoughts?

      Well you can get the galaxy buds+ for $209.30 through the student portal as well, so the S20 ultra and buds+ (and the free wireless battery pack) is $1808.50.

      I dont know if the points are worth $200, but anyway just letting you know.

      •  

        Checking it out, I could use the points to get an A30 phone (valued at 300.00)….

        I don't know. Choices.. Choices….

    •  

      Going with the Telstra plan is definitely an option especially if you are already looking to buy into a sim plan for 12 months or using the education portal could get you a little bit off. However, the cheapest option that seems to be around at the moment would be using one of the 50% off codes that people are sourcing. It would get the S20 Ultra down to $1124 + code cost which would still easily be better than any of the other EPP or points based discounts available at the moment.

      Would definitely be worth going through OzBargain classifieds to source on of these codes.

    •  

      the route I would go is, take the outright option with the buds+. Pay full price if you have to, but pay using a CC with PP.

      These things will drop in price in a few months. Wait 11.5 months to the even of S30 release for maximum price drop. Claim price protection. In the end, pay clearance price for something you got on day 1, and keep the free buds.

      Bonus points if you can get any cashrewards/shopback cashback on top of it.

      •  

        Which credit card offers 12mths price protection?

        The only one I know is 28d, but they no longer offer to new customer? :/

    •  

      March 5th is the release date for the non-Ultra phones, so if you want the 512gb I'd wait and get it through the portal. Use the $50 discount on the newsletter signup too and use a second email address for another $50 voucher then get the buds for $250.

      Can you put it on a credit card with point gain or cashback?

    What happened to the S11?

  •  

    Usually cheaper to go on an Optus plan if you wait for one of there big super deals, also noticing Optus is back to doing 36 months plans though haven't sat down to see if its worth it on these longer plans

    Yupz these high end phones are getting more and more expensive now ive decided too wait a year or so and buy a one year old Note series phone as they usually drop down to close to half price of original pre release prices and Samsung phones have 2 year warranty anyway, if you look hard on ebay you can find great used mobiles in near perfect condition
