Yes, we offer an educational discount of 30% to students and teachers all year round.
You would be eligible for an educational discount if you are a full time student or educator currently at a recognised academic institution and can provide us with supporting documents to prove it.
How do I apply?
You can submit your request through this form on the Spitfire Audio website.
Follow the on screen instructions and upload your supporting documentation to submit your request for educational discount:
You will receive an email to confirm your educational discount status within three business days. These requests are processed manually, so please allow for some time after submitting before contacting us about it.
The educational discount status is linked to your account and will automatically be applied to any eligible products, once approved you will see your discounted price in red on the shop page and product pages.
The discount is applied to single libraries and not to collections, as those are already discounted from the RRP of the single libraries within them. The discount doesn't apply to the hard drive or SSD service.
What documentation should I submit?
Students: a student ID card that has your name on it and an expiry date that is in the future, or an issue date that is within 30 days of your request. If your ID card is not dated you can submit additional documents alongside it to prove that you are currently enrolled, provided that they are dated within a month of your request or have an expiry date that is in the future.
These are some documents that would meet our criteria: upcoming class schedule, electronic or printed communication from the school/university, redacted tuition fees or loan payments, transcripts.
Educators: a staff/faculty ID card that has your name on it and an expiry date that is in the future, or an issue date that is within 30 days of your request. If your staff/faculty card is not dated you can submit additional documents alongside it to prove that you are currently employed by a recognised teaching institution, provided that they are dated within a month of your request or have an expiry date that is in the future.
These are some documents that would meet our criteria: upcoming class schedule, electronic or printed communication from the school/university, redacted paycheck or invoices, redacted contract of employment, live link to your staff directory profile.
Please note: the above documentation must be in your name, therefore match the name of the account it is requested from. You cannot request an educational discount on behalf of someone else.
Why has my request been declined?
If your request is declined you will receive an automated email, and a support ticket will be opened by the agent who processed your application to explain the rejection in more detail.
N.B: If you only receive an automated rejection email that is addressed as “Dear Customer” rather than your first name, this means that your name is not visible on your account, therefore your application could not be processed and was automatically rejected. In this case please edit your account to include your name and apply again, or get in touch with us at spitfireaudio.com/support and we will be happy to do this for you.
Why is my discount not for 30%?
Your discount will not show as a 30% reduction if generated while the library you applied for is already at a promotional price. In this case the discount will top up the existing promotional discount, and will be generated to match a 30% discount on the full price of the library. The educational discount will not apply if the library of your choice is already in a promotion and reduced by 30% or more.
Why can’t I have a discount on your collections?
Our collections already have a discount of up to 35% compared against the full price of the products they contain, so the educational discount does not apply in this case.
How do I use my discount?
Once your request has been approved, prices for eligible products will automatically be discounted for you when you're logged in. There's nothing else you need to do.
Can I give my discount to somebody else?
No, your educational discount will only work on purchases made with the same Spitfire account you used when you applied for the discount, so you won’t be able to share it.
