    Hey-

    I recently got a MBP with the back to school deal, so I got $200 of an iPod Touch... I didn't take advantage of the printer deal. Now my fiancee is wanting a MBP herself, and this is where my question comes in...

    Does Apple offer the student discount price year round? Do they run the printer special year round as well? I know the iPod touch deal is only with the back to school special, but am wondering about the other two aspects. If they do offer the education discount and printer deal year round, then we are going to wait to get hers until late September instead of cutting finances really tight and getting it at the end of this month.

    There is no desire for another iPod touch, as the first one was for her, and I have no need for one given that I have a Nexus One which is more then enough for me, and prefer vinyl records for my listening pleasure (I know, 20 year old that prefers vinyl). The only concern is the student discount and the $100 off a printer (should have gotten it last time as ours recently bit the dust).

    The education discount runs year-round, and the printer rebate has always been renewed in the past. While they're certainly under no obligation to extend the printer deal beyond the current end date, it's likely that they will.

    That is what I figured, when I Mroogled I found threads going back years talking about the printer discount, etc. but most of the recent ones were during the back to school period as well, so just wanted to make sure, and I misread a thread regarding the education discount (sounded like they cut it in half outside the back to school program, but they were talking in terms if you add up the edu discount, iPod, etc that it gets "cut in half" by not getting that)

    If they do not continue the printer deal it won't be life ending by any means, $100 extra towards a printer is just nice since it means that is $100 I can, in turn, put towards a better scanner.
