    Has anyone heard if Apple will be extending the Student Union promotion to the UK? I wanna get one of the new iBooks, so it'd be nice to get a free iPod too.

    A promotion is starting on August 2nd (This coming Tuesday), where if you buy a mac and an ipod within a certain timeframe you can get a rebate of £100.

    I think those details are correct - do a quick search, I'm sure theres a thread on here somewhere already about it.

    Yep, the promotion starts on Tuesday according to the European web editor. They e-mailed me last week - I pasted it on this thread, which you might want to check out:

    That's not as good as the US Student Union promo! Better than nothing for sure, but still not as good.

    I agree... especially since I was told that I have to be AT my future university to get the rebate, rather than just have confirmation of my place. I'm sure they'll accept a letter from my uni as confirmation that I'll soon be there, because in both the Regent Street and Bluewater stores I'm able to get student discounts even though I haven't got a confirmed place until my exam results.

    Fingers crossed this is not the case, I don't want to wait until I start uni to get the iBook. I want everything sorted out before I start, specifically I want time to make sure there are no problems with the computer before I really need it. I don't want to be without my iBook for the first couple of weeks of uni because it's being fixed!

    I shall ring the Apple Ed store when the promo starts and find out.

    I think a copy of the Uni's confirmation letter that you get after your results (hopefully lol) should be fine.

    Me too - especially since I'm switching from a PC so want to get used to the iBook before moving to uni - I currently live 30 mins from the Bluewater Kent store and less than an hour from the London Regent Street store, and my future uni is more than 3 hours away from any Apple Store so if I have any problems I'd like to get them sorted out before I go!

    Phoned Apple this morning. Checked that even though I am not going to Uni until September that I qualify a) for edu discount and b) for the student union promotion.

    On both counts I do qualify.

    :cool:

    Updates usually happen around 1pm UK time for the UK site. So give it an hour or so and something should show on the site.

    also the euro promo isn't egligible for the Ibooks ordered last week..

    the person on the phone told me to send the ibook back and order a new one as it's necessary that the mac and the ipod are on the same bill!!!
    **** happens..

    There used to be 3 different ibooks on the education pages, the 2 that are there now plus one that just had a CD drive (not a combo drive).

    wouldn't the promotion be better if it was just £100 off an iPod when bought with a mac (excluding shuffles). Seems a bit pointless if your going to get the money back after you spend it. Unless the rebate is just money you spend on the apple store.

    just a thought.
