Student discount

Save money on O2 Refresh

Student? Get 20% off your Refresh plan. Plus save 20% on selected accessories.

As a student, you'll get a 20% student discount on your Airtime Plan when you pick up a phone, tablet or mobile broadband device on O2 Refresh. The Airtime Plan covers your calls, texts and data. You'll also be able to claim 20% off accessories.

Your Device Plan is the total cost of your device which is paid off monthly, so the discount isn’t available on this part of your monthly bill. But you can reduce those bills by spreading the cost of your device up to 36 months with our Custom Plans.
