If you haven’t upgraded your smartphone before making a return to college, OnePlus is now willing to shave 10 percent off the price of its latest flagship, the OnePlus 5. You’ll have to verify that you’re actually a student to receive the coupon code, but it seems like that’s really all there is to it. Once that step’s done, you can save a bit of money and get yourself a device that very few people on campus will have.

But it’s worth giving some thought to whether the OnePlus 5 is right for you — even marked down. Earlier this month, the company released a new update for the phone that added (electronic) video stabilization to 4K recordings. So OnePlus is at least working to address some of the shortcomings that the 5 shipped with.

Also, the 10 percent comes off your entire order from the OnePlus web store, so it’s up to you whether to just get a phone by itself or add on some accessories. If you’ve already got a OnePlus handset, I guess you could also use it to save on a spare Dash charger or some cases.

The offer is open in the United States, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Croatia, and Hungary. You’ll have a month to use your discount code, but students will be able to redeem the deal once each year while enrolled. The full details can be found on the OnePlus forums.
