Sony Student Discount Online Store Gives 10% Off VAIO Products

Sony has opened up a new program for students called the Sony Style Campus Program.  This program allows university students in the U.S., students parents or teachers to get a 10% discount on VAIO laptops and desktops and digital voice recorders.


Here’s what eligibility for this education discount is based on:


  • Students currently attending or accepted into an accredited college or university in the United States.
  • Parents and legal guardians purchasing on behalf of their child who is a student currently attending or accepted into an accredited college or university in the United States.
  • Faculty and Staff members from an accredited college or university in the United States

You can purchase a VAIO either online or in a Sony Style retail store.  The process online is a little complicated, but here are the steps to guide you on this.

  1. Go to the Sony Style Campus Program page, click this link to get there
  2. Put in your school name and select a state, remember the PIN “SONYCAMPUS“, you’ll need it on the next page and it needs to be in
  3. On the next page, register with your email and personal information and put in the PIN “SONYCAMPUS” where it indicates.  You’ll need to create yourself a password here as well so you can login later.reg-step2
  4. After this process is done, you’ll be directed back to the homepage of  You NEED TO LOGIN (link at the top of the page) using the email and password you created on the registration page.  Once that’s done, start shopping!
  5. The discount will NOT SHOW UNTIL IT’S IN YOUR CART.  Below see a screenshot for a Sony VAIO SR290 that I configured and then got the student discount of 10% off to drop the price to $1,111.34 from the regular price of $1,194.99:Price of VAIO SR with student discountvaio-sr-shopping-cart-with-student-discountPrice of VAIO SR without student discountvaio-sr-shopping-cart-without-student-discount

If you don’t like buying online, you can go to any SonyStyle retail store to make a purchase, just take a valid student ID to get the 10% discount.  You can buy one VAIO product per year with this discount and as many voice recorders as you like.

If you’re a student looking for a laptop, definitely check out the 13.3″ VAIO SR laptop for school needs, or if you want something a little cheaper and with a bigger screen the 15.4″ Sony VAIO NS is a great budget option that starts at $799.99 without discount.

I'm a big believer in the importance of technology usage in education, but not just having blind faith in technology gadgets and using them in a school setting for the sake of it. I review and write about technology devices such as laptops and tablets that have a clear purpose and provide a learning advantage for students.

    I just came across this website and am kicking myself for not taking the opportunity to explore offers like this earlier. My goal as a student at IADT is Networking as well as web design and game design.My HP crashed right after school began, so my Mom was nice enough to hook me up with this VAIO that was on sale at Walmart.- comment about the vaio later.
    Total computer geek at heart, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at me. You’d think I was somebody’s hood ornament girlfriend who has nothing intelligent to think or say so I just stand still and look pretty for a bunch of drunk idiots. Well, guess what? Sick of it and it’s about time I stop getting the short end and laughed at because I say I’m into computers. Those idiots will be paying me someday, and it won’t be for anything naughty, as someone of the like might subconsciously think. They’re already beginning to ask me network related questions, albeit simple.
    Additionally, I desperately need to replace an old Lenovo T60, on it’s last leg. I’ve the VAIO,mentioned earlier, less than a year old, but I’m REALLY NOT THAT IMPRESSED and WANT a laptop capable, tweaked to my needs, if possible. Or at least use as a backup or extra gadget for my own fun. (If anyone wants this VAIO, I’d be more than happy to part with it. Perfect condition, just need to get the personal things off and sell it). I’ve got my eye on something totally different and am impatiently waiting to take it on.
    The student discounts listed here look pretty sweet. I have yet to inspect any of them, but that’s then next I’m going to do.
    Thanks for reading/listening,
