    A few weeks ago I was pricing a Nano with a Nike+ Sport Kit and an armband, and the accessories were a dollar or two cheaper as I was going through the education store. When I was trying to do the same yesterday and today - no such discount. Only the Nano is discounted. I'm seeing that even the new wireless Mighty Mouse has no discount when I go through the store.

    Is this a change in Apple policy, or am I missing something? Can I still get a discount in a brick and mortar store on these things?

    In the UK the mighty mouse is £31 and £35 with edu (the national contract type, 70p more on each as normal edu) and £35 and £39 without edu discount.

    I'm getting that as well in the US Education Store.

    I get discounts on other Apple peripherals though.

    Y'know I read the wrong things on the site, the Wireless Mighty Mouse hasn't appeared over here yet. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hope they don't restrict the discounts to just hardware.. comes in handy when you want to update little things throughout the year.

    The Nike+iPod kit isn't Apple hardware, it's Nike hardware, hence the lack of discount. Edu discounts are only offered on Apple hardware...not sure about the Mighty Mouse though.

    That makes sense, though I'm 99% sure that a few weeks ago when I priced the Sport kit and armband they were around $27 for education customers. This was before it had officially come out, and was still a preorder. I'm seeing now that no other non-Apple hardware has a discount. Is this a change? Or was it always this way?

    I think the BT Mighty Mouse is not available for a discount. However, other items (like the wired MM) are given at a discount.

    There is a discount

    The retail store have a 10% (6.90) discount for education, for some reason the online store is not reflecting this.
