I've been waiting to get a MBP and talked to a guy at Apple...the refurb discounts ar better than the educational discounts, and you can get them in the educational area of the site.

(I do qualify for educational discounts - I've been waiting to get the MBP to get educational reimbursement from my employer which comes this Friday, for whatever that's worth)

Refurbs are not included in the BTS promotion. Its on new items only.

All these people upset that it's $100 only for the App Store. Seriously, people READ THE TERMS. It's very simple. You can use the $100 in ALL of Apple's "digital goods" stores - App Store, Mac App Store, iTunes, iBooks. And I quote thusly:

Quote:
The App Store Gift Card may be used on the Mac App Store, the iTunes Store, the App Store, and the iBookstore.
Does no one read? That's what the asterisk was for. Read the terms!

The lady was pretty nice, she gave me her direct number and extension in the case I don't get anything within 48 hrs; she said that morelikely I wasn't going to need to call her since she will be looking over for my request to be finalized and that she would call me herself.

Apple is pretty cool. I will be finally able to put iWork on my soon to come MBA! XD
Hey guys, I got my code 48hrs later! May not buy iWork after all, since there is that iCloud hype.

the UK discount is amazing since if you buy online you don't need proof and you get a 3 year applecare (minus phone support after year 1) for free, as well as 70 gift card and the discount pricing.

They don't have to give you anything.

Oprah and the Queen are also very wealthy, perhaps they can each give you $100 towards your new computer.....
why...yes...they both should.................

Maybe there is a difference between the German discount and the American, but I was purchasing the 2012 MacBook Air last year with the promotion on via Apple on Campus. I spent maybe 950 on the 13" with the student rebate AND got the iTunes card.

well then...there is a difference then. In U.S.A, there used to be discounts, but not anymore.

I'm sorry but you seem to be too lazy to check yourself. Apple USA clearly advertises the following things: "Buy a Mac for college, get a $100 App Store Gift Card - and also save with education pricing."

Simply go to the US store. Has been like that for the last couple of years as least and I wouldn't make sense why Apple would have different deals in the US and Germany (of course despite the fact that "back to school times" are different in both countries - I'm still in university till August)

promo criteria on recent mbp purchase (past 7 days)

Just spoke with a customer care representative @ Apple. I purchased a brand new 13" mpb w/rd with an education discount 7 days ago. Gave me the option of (1.) returning purchase & buying again to receive gift card today or (2.) they will send me a promo code for $100 discount in 3 weeks via email. I choose what was behind door #2. Looks like a new carry bag is in my near future.
