OnePlus today announced OnePlus Education Benefits that include exclusive discounts and “perks" for college students and faculty members in India. The education benefit covers 760 universities and 38,498 colleges across India, and customers can enjoy Rs 1,000 discount on all OnePlus smartphones or OnePlus TV models. Additionally, several OnePlus accessories like the OnePlus Buds Z are available with 5 percent off for education customers. The company says that after proper verification, students and teachers would receive a voucher that is valid for one calendar year.
As per the information available on the OnePlus forum, currently enrolled college students and faculty members have to verify themselves with the company’ partner Student Beans. Upon proper verification, customers will receive a voucher that needs to be used during the checkout process of the select OnePlus device. OnePlus adds that the benefit can only be used once per year and the voucher is not transferable as it is tied to a single OnePlus account. The voucher expires after one year of verification, and users will later have to reverify in order to get a new one once again.
