    So I'm going to get a Macbook instore next week but want to know what I'd need to prove my student status for the educational discount?

    Would a valid NUS Extra card be enough?

    Thanks!

    An NUS card should be fine, although it's definitely worth buying online if you can as you get the same discount rate (~10% for college level or ~14% for uni level) but you also automatically get 3 years extended warranty for free. Buying in-store does not have this, instead they offer 3 years of AppleCare (which is identical to warranty in terms of what it covers) for somewhere in the region of £50.

    Thank you, I had no idea!! I'll definitely buy online then
