    This might be asked before but i can't find it...
    Is the price in the website, same as the price as the local store?
    I mean, if u buy online, is the price for the same product the same if u go and get it at the local store?

    I managed to get some rebate in the local store. I asked him i prefer I shopped with him or I should buy on-line. Of course he preferred I shopped as his place, so I asked for a rebate for that - and got it.

    Within a country Apple tend to be fairly consistent with their pricing.

    This was not one of Apple's own stores, so that might make the difference

    I thought apple had a minimum advertised price thing going on.
    That's why at Apple it's $999, at reseller it's $999, at amazon, it's $999.

    And when amazon offers rebates, they still have the minimum advertised price, but it's crossed out and they "can't show you a price this low!!1!!one!"

    ...I know they do that for a certain brand of viola cases. :p (I loves me the BAM case!)

    Many stores have different online and retail prices. Walmart is one such place. Heck their stores aren't even the same throughout a city. Their prices are all over the place, and one store can't match another store's, or the online store's, price.
