Study essentials

Back to school deals

From compact notebooks to Alexa-enabled smart hubs like the Echo Dot[1], modern tech provides myriad ways to help us work and study.

Here are some great back-to-school deals on gadgets essential for studying, including some of our own favorites:

  • Samsung Galaxy S8[3]: A good phone can make all the difference, whether you’re studying on the go or keeping in contact with your study group. Save £150 off a Samsung Galaxy S8 and take off an additional £150 with select trade-ins.
  • Up to 30 percent off refurbished Apple products[4]: Looking for the perfect Apple product without the Apple price?

    Get up to 30 percent off Apple certified refurbished products, along with a one-year warranty.

  • Samsung Chromebook[5]: Chromebooks[6] are affordable and lightweight laptops that are perfect for schoolwork. Many of them are quite small, but the 11.6-inch Samsung Chromebook hits the sweet spot in both size and price at just £157 after a £33 discount on Amazon.
  • Anker PowerCore 10,000mAh power bank[7]: Power banks are must-have items when you’re frequently on the move, and Anker makes some of the best[8]. The pocket-sized 10,000mAh PowerCore is perfect for everyday travels and comes in at £26 for a savings of £24.
