    For those of you that got your MBP recently(past couple of weeks) with education pricing and think you missed the gift card that they are giving with the new purchases, u can contact apples customer service and tell them when u got ur MBP and they could sort it out for you. I ordered mine on May 31st with education pricing and i qualified for the app store gift card....


    give it a go

    Been on the phone for the last 30 mins.

    If you purchased it on apple.com, they will send you the gift card. If you purchased it in store, you have to return to the store, have them return it, and then ring it up again to get the gift card...big PITA if you purchased in store and don't have one close...

    I'd be interested to hear the results. I just bought one on May 27th. Missed Lion and the Education pricing. Worth a call.

    Well he wouldnt give me the $100 gift card but he offered me any free accessories under $100 so I got the Bose Companion2 Series II speakers free. :eek:

    Amazing customer service.

    LOL! That is amazing customer service. I would say that is even better than the $100 gift card. Would much rather spend on hardware than software!

    Ordered my MBP the 13th here in Holland. Called them today and they said the gift card (€75 = $107 :D)might already be included in the shipment, if it wasn't I should email him and I'd get it anyway. Great customer service, even outside of the US :p

    Lol, enjoy your BOSE speakers! While I will enjoy..... er...... im not sure yet...... and app?

    I might ask in store when i buy mine if they can give any kind of replacement for the same price, maybe a case or something.

    Bought my MBP on May 26th. Just got off the phone with Apple.. I didn't fall under the $100 gift card promotion but the rep I was talking to allowed me to choose a free complimentary accessory. So now I'm receiving a free Magic Mouse in 6-8 business days!

    Great customer service as always.

    Dang I tried just now and couldn't get the guy to bite to throw something in for me. Bought mine on the 30th. Oh well, worth the try. No big deal though

    I bought my MBP on Friday. Went in today. Very hassle free. I *think* they treated it as a return, but all I did was hand my receipt over and they did everything on their end. Probably took me 15 min tops, and that was with the guy trying to figure out what to do.

    I purchased mine in store on June 10 and went in to get my gift card. No problems with that, but have a question about the apple care since they did the return and re-buy. I assume the agreement number from the re-purchase is the one that is valid ? What concerns me is when I checked the serial number of my MBP online it did not indicate I had apple care, unless that is not always current ? Did not think about this when I was in the store so I am going to call tomorrow and check, but just wondering if anyone had any thoughts who also went through the same process. Thanks.

    Well I purchased on May 25th and received my MBP on May 28th. I called 1-800-MYAPPLE and they gave me the $100 Mac Appstore credit. She said within 3 weeks I'll have an email with the code. Can't complain. Really painless too.
