OnePlus offers Rs. 1,000 off phones, TVs for students and teachers in India
OnePlus has launched a new Educational Benefits program in India in which exclusive benefits and discounts will be offered to students and teachers. The program covers 760 universities and 38,498 colleges across India. It seeks to offer students and teachers an instant discount of Rs. 1,000 when buying a new OnePlus or OnePlus TV smartphone. The company is also offering a five percent discount on any OnePlus accessory to all college-goers in the country.
To take advantage of the OnePlus Education Benefits program offerings, eligible students or teachers must verify that they are actually attending a university or college. In their forums, OnePlus confirmed that it has partnered with Student Beans to facilitate the verification process. Once the user completes the verification process performed by Student Beans, their OnePlus account will receive a new coupon that can be added at checkout. Eligible users can verify here.
Only currently enrolled students and faculty members are eligible for this discount. This benefit can only be used once a year, and the five percent discount is offered on all accessories, including audio devices, covers, and protection. The coupon issued to the student or faculty member is subject to their OnePlus account and can only be used by that person. The coupon expires after one year of verification and users will have to check again later to get a new coupon one more time.
