    Hi everyone,

    I am considering of getting the AppleCare for my MacBook Pro (the one on my signature). I am student and thus, I am qualified for a discount.

    I can see that if I go to About my mac -> More info -> Service and hit on the AppleCare button, I automatically get directed to the Apple site where I can put my payment info and get the AppleCare code instantly via e-mail. However, even though I used the student discount when I got my Mac, it gives me the original price ($249). Does anybody know how to get the discount?

    If I go to the Apple online store, I see that I can order the AppleCare and get the student discount. However, I don't want Apple to ship me anything. I prefer to get it instantly with e-mail.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    If you want the student discount, you are probably going to have to have it shipped to you. Plus, unless your 1yr warranty is running out in a few days, it really doesn't matter how the AppleCare gets to you.

    As a last resort, you could check with Apple retail and see if they can do the discount in store.

    Is getting a small piece of paper shipped to you really a big deal? The only way to get the student discounted price is to order it at the time of your Mac purchase, or go into a physical Apple store if you have one nearby.

    How much is the student discount?
    I bought my AppleCare from B&H Photo and saved over 25% off of Apple's price.
    For that kind of savings I didn't mind waiting for the paper and registering it myself.

    I bought my Applecare from BH for $179.99 (13") through the autoenroll option and it got activated in less than 2 hours; they will ship to you the paperwork anyway. Highly recommended.
