    Apple is emailing some of its customers with a special 6th Anniversary Promotion celebrating the 6th year of their online Apple Store.

    Discounts have not been consistent with one report of $25 off purchases above $250, and another $100 off purchases above $999. Customers are being emailed specific Claim Codes, so this offer is not available for the general public.

    It's unknown which customers are being offered discounts.

    Damn! I just missed making the first post >_<...

    I ordered my G5 through the Apple Store... This baby wasn't cheap. (That's right... it was decked out...)

    I haven't received anything yet. I want a discount on... something. :shrugs:

    I got the one about $100 off an order of $999 or more. I don't know if I'd use it though .. I'm just a poor college student after all. My friend down the hall received the $25 off of $249 or more, and we don't really understand the discrepancy.. Any clues?

    I got a $100 off of $999 this evening. Excellent....

    I also got a $25 off of $250 a coupe weeks ago for shopping at ITMS, which I thought was weird since I've only speant about $10 there ever.

    I hope i can combine them (and my .mac renewal). Almsot $150 off in total. 15-inch PB, come to papa.

    Re: Full text please

    Edit: Hmm .. originally he wanted the full text.

    I've bought the following from the Apple store in the past year: 15 gig 3rd gen iPod, some accessories for it, QT Pro, and Panther. I haven't purchased a new Mac or anything. I don't think I've come close to $1,000 in purchases.

    i want the other one

    I've bought an iPod from the site, but nothing bigger. I got the $25 off coupon. maybe they give the smaller one to people who've bought less than a computer? a guess, when more people post i'm sure we'll figure out if there's a pattern.

    but i'm in the market for a new powerbook right now, and $100 would actually be a big deciding factor in the purchase! anyone have a code i can use for $100? Or does it work that way? would it even let me use someone else's code?

    bb

    edit: i just read the terms and they're not transferable. darn.

    I have ordered three computers from the Apple store, .Mac, two iPods, many games, bose headphones, three xServes, Jaguar, I got panther from ADC, QuickTime Pro 4 and 6, two cinema displays, and finaly two new sets of iPod headphones and dock cords (dumb dog!). I think I would have gotten something but....NO???? I can't understand how they are deciding who should get it and who does not get one.

    I've never purchased anything from the Apple store online, although I have received those kinds of coupons from them before. The best one I ever got was after I registered my iPod. I got a coupon for $100 off a purchase of $250. The most recent was $25 off of $249 or more, but I didn't use it because I purchased my powerbook at the store.

    I haven't received this most recent coupon yet though. :)

    "I heard my old girlfriend has turned to the chruch. She's trying to replace me, but it'll never work."

    "Can't you see, a giant walks among you looking through your petty lives?'


    Great Pulp references! But it's actually "I heard an old girlfriend", not "my old girlfriend." And, "church" is misspelled.

    BTW, I just received a $20 off coupon for renewing my .Mac account.

    I received two gift certificates within ten minutes of each other: the $100 of $999 and the $25 off $249. Very cool.

    Re: How about Edu customers?

    Yes. I only buy off Apple's online store if I can get a good education discount, and I received the $100 off of $999+ purchase coupon (see my post above).

    I didn't get one yet and I don't want one. I just got my $20 .mac coupon and bought a wireless keyboard.

    If I get another coupon I'll be totally broke. :(
