    Hey everybody,

    Through tomorrow, all Apple computers are instantly 5% off at CompUSA... part of their back to school sale. But here's the best part:

    The Apple Store here in Charlotte offered to price match CompUSA... I just went in to buy a new Core Solo Mac mini (reg. $599), and when I pulled out the CompUSA sales flyer with its "5% off all Apple computers" listing and said "Can you match this?", they did. Saved about $30... not a huge sum, but still noteworthy.

    So if you're going to go buy a Mac today or tomorrow, make sure you ask the Apple Store if they'll match CompUSA's price. :)

    Or you can go to CompUSA if you dare. ;)

    Well, I realized right after I posted it that I might have put it in the wrong forum. So feel free to report the thread... ;)

    Does it work online? Also is it just for Apple Computers?

    Well, there are no CompUSA's in Demark, and I'm not gonna buy a new Mac tomorrow, but thanks for the info...;)

    Well, they have other stuff on sale, but I don't know exactly what. The sales flyer specifically says "5% off all Apple computers".

    And I doubt this would work online with Apple, because their web site doesn't offer a "check competitors' prices" option. But you could try calling the Apple Store and see if a live sales agent will match the CompUSA price.

    The one in ShadySide? I love that store. There are a few CompUSA around here if you're looking to buy a new mac. I live in Pittsburgh.:p

    Do not forget about the Apple Store in South Hills Village!! Thank god they opened it because Shadyside was just a tad too far from the South Hills, esp having to go down 51 during rush hour, yuck!

    The store in SH Village said they will match it if you have the ad with you.

    Sweet...maybe I'll go there to buy my mbp instead. Do you think they would match it on top of the edu discount?
