Same here. I don't think there's been a single post with someone confirming Unidays discount, but several indicating it doesn't work.
@maritrunks - may want to edit post title with a YMMV on the Unidays discount.

I was lucky to have a fellow RFD'r share a 10% code with me - I didn't ask where the code came from. I ordered Saturday, now I sit impatiently hitting F5 on the purolator tracking page, waiting for them to pick it up from dell. Also not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but rakuten is up to 5% at the moment for dell.ca.

Final edit: forgot to thank OP!

stupid freshly generated unicode coupon says expired. Dell is basically saying please don't shop our store.

Thanks OP, grabbed one with 5% Rakuten and 5% Perkopolis code. It's not Unidays but who knows if I'll even be able to get that.

Does 3525 support 2 hard drives? It has an empty 2.5” slot.

Instructions are in the service manual

I have this laptop and I can confirm Dell includes the 2.5” HDD bracket, screws and connector already in the laptop. Just open the bottom panel and you have access to the drive bay with the necessary hardware to install the drive

Thank you. Can I move the PCIe SSD that comes with the laptop to that 2.5" slot? What adaptor should I get?

You can’t really move it directly unless you get a m.2 to SATA adapter. Those can be found in amazon/eBay and may or may not work correctly.

No. M.2 to 2.5" adaptors only support M.2 SATA SSDs

Have tried multiple Unidays codes over several days - all say expired.
Reported issue to Unidays - they said fixed.
Got code May11th and it says "expired" on Dell website.

Anyone have a spare discount code they can send me ?

No, the adaptor will not work with NVMe PCIe M.2 SSDs.

Afaik, there are no 2.5" adaptors that work with NVMe PCIe M.2 SSDs

Is the original SSD PCIe? Specs indicates “Hard Drive: 512 GB, M.2, PCIe NVMe, SSD”. Guess it’s not compatible with the adapter. I might just buy a 2.5” SATA SSDSmiling Face With Open Mouth And Cold Sweat

My friend has just received this laptop. He needs to connect this laptop to 2 monitors but it only has 1 HDMI port. Does anyone know how to connect this laptop to 2 monitors?

Looks like Dell doesn't do the 10% off through Unidays anymore, they have their own 10% off code for students which you get though https://www.dell.com/en-ca/lp/delluniversity and is sent to your university email address.

From what I read in another thread, the code works on anything but they may have changed that.
