    Hi all-

    What do you need to get the EDU discount from an Apple retail store? Just a student ID, or do you need a copy of a current transcript or somethign as well?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    i heard you do need a student id (not sure if you need the other info).. remember you cannot get software edu discounts in store.. you have to order online. which brings me to online educational discount, they did not ask me whether i was really a student, no verification at all. however i heard they do randomly check.

    At most you will need a student ID. I have bought stuff there before without my ID, but they want to look at my driver's license to "register" me in the computer or look to see if I'm in there. I suppose in this case, they are going on the same honor system/possible random check as the online store uses.
