    Buy a Mac for college and get a free encyclopedia, lecture hall,

    organizer, iPod.*

    I am getting these e-mails constantly but I bought my mac(for college) in February. So apparently I'm not eligible. I want a free ipod touch!!! anyone know of an e-mail address i could try to go about getting one.. since i did pay almost 3k on my mac pro

    You're correct, you are not eligible, having bought your machine 5 - 6 months before the promotion started.

    You do realize that you're dealing with Apple, right?

    It's pretty much a rebate offer if it's worked like it has in previous years. You buy your mac, buy your ipod, and send in the receipts to get a check back for the price of the ipod.

    So it's not like you can beg and plead with your local Apple clerk to hand you a free one, as you are paying for it regardless.

    Try going to the grocery store -- "Hi, in your flyer this week you have peas on sale. I bought a can of peas 5 months ago and ate them. I want you to refund me the difference in price I paid to the sale price."

    Let us know how you do with that.

    :D Your argument about being poor would probably be a lot more convincing if your previous post hadn't mentioned spending $3K on the Mac Pro BTW! :D:D
