From Macbooks to MS Office and from Xbox to Switch, I’ll share any decent computer-based deals and offers on this page.

Computing and computer deals
Free Beats and discount at Apple for students & teachers
The annual student Apple deal is back for 2019. Not only do students get around 10% off Apple iMacs, MacBooks and iPads, they can pick up a free pair of Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones for free when they buy one of these discounted computers. These headphones normally sell for between £250 and £300, so even if you don’t want to keep them you could hopefully sell them on eBay for a few hundred quid.
The “Back to School” offer ends on 17th October 2019 and is open to uni or college students, teachers or staff working in any educational establishment.
Sadly the hack that allowed anyone to get an NUS card, even non-students, no longer works, so this offer is just for bonafide students. You’ll need to have a verified UniDays account to do this online, but in theory most student ID will work in an Apple Store.
Games and console deals
I’m not a huge gamer, but if I spot a really good computer or game deal I’ll share it here.
Save on Xbox Live, Steam and more at CD Keys
CD Keys regularly has discounts on iTunes, but some of the best deals seem to be on computer games and credit.
There also seem to be regular Daily Deals with money off the latest games.
As an added bonus you can save an extra 5% off your first order if you like them on Facebook.
