I recently found out that Sony Canada has an Educational Store that offers specific discounts just to students and faculty. To access the store you will need to input your name, institution, school email address, and student ID (if you are a student). You will then gain access to the Educational Store that can save you money on many Sony purchases.
There are many deals on the educational side of things, here are a few examples:
- Save over $350 on a DSLR and get a free accessories kit
- Get up to an extra 10% off headphones
- Save up to 30% when you bundle headphones and a speaker set
- Get up to an extra 15% off accessories
- Save up to 10% on all cameras (DSLR, Cybershot, NEX)
- Buy a Playstation console and get a $50 gift coupon
- Buy a eReader and get a $10 gift coupon
- Buy an Xperia ZL and get a $75 gift coupon
- Get an additional 5% off all custom laptops
The savings are endless and I am very excited because I am a student and I own a Sony camera. This Circular Polarizing Filter is on my wishlist and retails for $119.99 but as a student I can get it for $101.19. The filter is useful for eliminating reflection off of glass so I can shoot pictures through windows without the glare. I also totally want a remote control for shutter release. This RM-L1AM Alpha Remote Commander is regularly $94.99 but if you are a student or faculty member, you can pick it up for just $80.74. Woohoo!
All items ship for free from Sony Canada.
