To be entitled to such a generous discount permanently, you need to be enrolled in a recognised facility which provides tertiary education. It should be noted that this only applies to students and not those employed by those facilities (e.g. teacher).
It’s really simple to apply. Simply email Orbx via their support ticket system and follow the instructions to have your OrbxDirect account part of the Student Discount program. You’ll need to provide evidence of your eligibility. The following documents must display your details clearly and are the only ones to be accepted:
- Letter confirming enrolment
- Student card with expiry date
The ticket system allows attachments so make sure you attach them appropriately.
Once approved (allow 5 working days for it to be approved), your enrollment will apply to the current calendar year. So if you apply on December 3rd 2017, you will be eligible for the remainder of the year, but if you submit your application on January 6th 2018, it will last the entire year. If you do the former, you’ll have to reapply each year to re-validate your entitlement to the discount.
Finally, it should be noted that any time there’s a sale or any other special offers, the discount will not apply. This is great as up until January 1st 2018, you can take advantage of Orbx’s generous 45% discount across their entire product range.
