- I’d like 20% off my phone bill. How do I get a discount code?
Our 20% monthly student discount is available to new and upgrading customers only, and you must be a University student. If you’re already with us, check if you’re eligible to upgrade by logging in to My EE.
To get a discount code, visit ee.co.uk/unidays. You’ll need to be a verified member of UNiDAYS, but you’ll be able to register on this page.
Once you’ve got a code, choose your new phone or SIM Only plan from our online shop and enter your discount code at the checkout in the ‘Got a voucher?’ box.
Once you’ve gone through the checkout and confirmed your purchase of a new phone or SIM Only plan, your 20% discount and 500MB data safety will start automatically. You’ll receive a text message to confirm this.
- Already got a 20% discount code?
- What’s included in the 20% discount offer?
If you’re new to EE or are ready to upgrade, you’re eligible to get 20% off your monthly bill on any 24-month handset plan, and on any SIM Only plan that isn’t already on offer.
4GEE Max Annual Upgrade plans aren’t included in this offer, and neither are 4GEE WiFi or tablet plans.
- I’m already with EE. What can I get?
If you’re already with us and are ready to upgrade, grab a code here to get 20% off your monthly bill and start shopping for your brand new phone. You’ll also automatically receive a monthly 500MB data safety net every single month, totally free.
To check if you’re eligible to upgrade, login to My EE or text UP to 150.
If you’re already with us but aren’t ready to upgrade yet, you can still get a monthly 500MB data safety net – an extra 500MB every single month, totally free. Text STUDENT to 150 and follow the instructions.
- How does the 500MB data safety net work?
Your 500MB data safety net is an extra 500MB of data that gets added to your account every single month, totally free. So, if you’re on a 2GB plan, you’ll receive a total of 2.5GB of data to use each month; if you’re on a 10GB plan, you’ll get 10.5GB, and so on.
You don’t need to do anything to trigger this: it just gets added automatically. Please note though that if you receive a text message stating that you’ve used 80% of your monthly data allowance, this is 80% of your total amount of data including your additional 500MB, not your existing allowance without the extra 500MB.
If you’ve taken the 20% discount offer, your 500MB data safety net will be added to your account automatically and will be live for the remainder of your contract.
If you’re already with EE and have added the data safety net by texting STUDENT to 150, your 500MB data safety net will last until the end of your contract.
As your 500MB data safety net gets added to your existing allowance it’s subject to your standard priceplan roaming charges, meaning that it can be used in the EU free of charge. Find out more about roaming on EE
- My 20% discount code isn’t working. What do I do?
At the moment our EE student discount is only on phone and SIM Only plans, and won’t work on 4GEE Max Annual Upgrade plans and SIM Only plans that are already on special offer.
If your discount code still isn’t working, visit the UNiDAYS website and select ‘Support’ in the top right-hand corner of the page (or go to Account > Support if using the UNiDAYS app), or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please bear in mind that discount codes will only work once per customer, so if you’ve already used your code you won’t be able to use it again.
- Where can I find more information?
We have a full EE Student section in Help on the EE website for both the 20% discount offer and the 500MB data safety net. This is the best place to start as it holds hints, tips and loads more information.
