Education Discount Usage

    I'm sorry if this has already been discussed, I did do quite a few searches.

    Question is:
    Can someone who qualifies for the education discount use their discount to allow me to pay for it?

    Also, will it be in my name so I can register the applecare, etc.

    I don't want to jeopardize their edu discount if they would want to take advantage of it at some point in their career.

    So, the simple question is can I go into the Apple Store like I am purchasing and have the person that is eligible for the discount show their verifiying documents.

    Thanks again. To me the saving is nice, however I don't want to break any rules over a small amount of money (in the scope of everything else!)

    You can do it. I think a student can use the education discount only 1 time a year. They might allow more than that on certain products, but on computers, I think it is once a year.

    I always remembered it being one laptop, one desktop and such forth per year.

    You are probably right.

    If you buy from the store at http://apple.procureweb.ac.uk you get an even bigger discount (around 17%) and you effectively get AppleCare for free.

    You'll need to ask your friend to use the connection at their University though - you can't get on that store from outside.
