Back to school season is finally here. If you’re looking to pick up all the essentials for your classes this fall, look no further.
Apart from school supplies and stationery, tech for remote learning has become all the more necessary since the pandemic, so there are some big savings from budget Chromebooks all the way up to premium devices like MacBooks and Surface Laptops.
Look out for Back to School sales directly from manufacturers too. Apple is giving away gift cards on top of its educational discounts on Macs and iPads, while Microsoft, HP, Dell, and Lenovo all have student discount programs with up to 40% off.
Samsung‘s back-to-school sale includes free headphones, while OnePlus has 10% off for both students and teachers without any voucher codes. Adobe also has over 60% off its Creative Cloud All Apps plan for education.
Those are just a few deals worth noting, but we’ve outlined all the biggest sales below – along with the top tech deals for students across major US retailers such as Walmart, Target, Amazon, Best Buy and more.
