    MBA i5 13" 256GB is $1499 at Best Buy, but you must order it since they don't have them in stock.

    Be careful ordering from bestbuy online. I placed my order 2 hours ago and it's already backordered. :(

    MacMall also has some decent discounts through their AppleInsider ad. I don't think they have all the models in yet, though.

    Hopefully amazon matches them. They generally do if enough people notify them of them price difference.

    I am probably going to go with Amazon to take advantage of the sales tax advantage--and get 2-day prime shipping once they get them in stock.

    Better question is, can you buy online (for CB purposes), pick up and request the $100 gc to match Apple's b2s promotion. That would be perfect

    Depends on who you ask at the store.

    ^this

    but since you're a legit student, i believe they will accept any proof.. like a letter of acceptance.

    Alright, dumb questions:

    1. Best buy has a student discount program?
    2. Is there a $100 gift card for buying a i5 macbook air?
    3. The i5 macbook air is $1234 on sale already.

    So are we looking at $1234- $100 - student discount?

    If so, that is a very great deal.

    1. No. They match apple's price.
    2. Yes.
    3. No. You will get it for $1234 + $100 GC

    OK, so the price is $1234 + tax. Then they give you a $100 best buy gift card.
    Now what is the return policy--I refuse to accept one with a dead pixel. Before I have had problems returning to Best buy for that reason. Are there restocking fees on apple laptops?

    Since I'm not close to a best buy, is it possible to receive the $100 GC online?
