TL;DR: Students receive an extra $100 discount on select Lenovo, Dell, and HP laptops at Best Buy, as of July 30. And select laptops also come with a free Amazon smart plug (a $24.99 value).
Now more than ever, students need an affordable and portable laptop that makes it easier to learn wherever they are. Thankfully, retailers such as Best Buy have plenty of exclusive student offers to help with tight budgets, and they’re even nice enough to throw in a few freebies.
For example, students save an extra $100 off select laptops and receive a free Amazon smart plug valued at $24.99. This deal applies to a variety of options from top brands such as Lenovo, Dell, and HP.
To qualify, head to the Best Buy Student Deals page to create a My Best Buy account and sign up for student deals. These deals are open to college students enrolled in at least one course, as well as the parents or guardians of students enrolled in primary, secondary, or post-secondary education. (So if you’re somehow reading this and you’re in second grade, your parent or guardian will need to buy your laptop for you, sorry.) Students/parents/guardians will then see all available offers on their Member Offers page, then simply just select to apply the offer before you add the item to your shopping cart. Once applied, you’ll receive your extra $100 off and free smart plug with these popular laptops:
One of the cheaper options to qualify for this offer, the Lenovo Yoga C740 includes a 10th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, 12GB of RAM, and a 256GB solid-state drive. You save $250 total with the student discount on a multi-functional laptop that includes a 1080p touchscreen and 360-degree folding design that transforms it from a laptop to a tablet, tent, or stand mode.
Another 2-in-1 laptop that transforms into whatever mode works best for you, this Dell Inspiron 13 7000 also includes a 10th Generation Core i5 processor but only 8GB of RAM. But for just $30 more than the Yoga C740, you get a 512GB SSD for more storage space as well as 32GB of Intel Optane Memory for faster access to files and applications. So you still get a great deal at $200 off with a laptop that only weighs 2.87 pounds.

If you crave more power, students get the chance to save $300 on a 17-inch HP Envy laptop. You start off with 10th Generation Core i7 processor with 12GB, plus 512GB SSD and 32GB Optane Memory. But the higher price also gives you the Nvidia GeForce MX330 graphics card. This transforms your school laptop into a powerful laptop that quickly renders videos and games for when you need some entertainment time outside of study hours.
For the student who requires both speed and portability, the Lenovo Yoga C940 checks both boxes. Available for $300 off, it includes an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and 32GB of Optane Memory. But it only weighs 2.98 pounds in a durable metal casing and 360-degree folding design. And the 4K Ultra HD 14-inch screen will make every video and livestream come in crystal clear.
