If anyone can afford it, it's Apple. I would suggest they keep it to just once a year without fail. I would be an excellent way to continue to increase sales volume, focus even more attention on the brand, and appeal to the ladies that salivate at the sound of the word "Sale"

I am completely confident they could make a move like this without damaging their current and long time marketing strategy. It would offer one more dimension to the Apple legacy. The real key to success would be true discount pricing. Significant reductions to compel people that might not otherwise buy Apple to act.

Can this supposed discount-to-be also be applied with an education discount? Buying directly from the Apple Store online?

Lousy sales event.

That's why I want Windows 8 and Android to do better.

Competition helps the consumers.

Same every year and is always just as humorous. Something for everyone needs to be changed to:

Stuff the upper hierarchy likes.

Since it is all about margins I dont know why they bother anyway. Still will sell alot on Friday either way to them richers.

Nope. No stacking of discounts.

Historically, refurbs have not been included. (In general, they're resistant to both this and educational discounts.) I doubt they'll be included this year, either--but in any case, a refurb, if it's any consolation, will almost certainly have a better price than new regardless of the discount.

The promo picture has two full size iPads side by side, I hope but am doubtful they'll offer iPad mini at a discount. If they'll discount the iPad mini to $299 I may bite.

Good time for them to clear out any overstock of iPad 2 they may have, and the previous generation iPod Touch.
