    Is the current $100 Appstore giftcard and printer rebate the best this summer or do better student promos occur in August? (sorry, mac newb here asking).

    This is the best you'll see. Now is a good time to buy, except MacBook Air.

    You also get $100 off the computer itself (it is the education discount at their store all year around) and $66 dollars off of Applecare. If you just get a computer and the printer, that's $200 in your pocket (or eventually back in your pocket since for the $100 printer it's a mail-in rebate) and $100 in apps.

    Yes and you also get discounts on AppleCare and a discount on the Mac as well.

    Yeah, I knew about the $50-200 discount on the laptop (depending on model) as well as the applecare discount. I was just wondering if there was going to be something like a free ipod like last year, and just had to wait for it.

    Thanks for the help!

    $100 Mac App Store gift card instead of free iPod this year. Good for iTunes Music Store, iBookstore, and iTunes App Store as well.

    If my macbook was given to me and it was purchased during the promo, can I go back to an apple store and ask for a gift card?

    The person who bought it for you probably kept the gift card for themselves. Even so, I highly doubt Apple would let you do this.

    It doesn't hurt to check into this though. Ask the individual first and then if you didn't receive the edu discount ask apple to see what they can offer you if anything.

    The person who bought it for you has to be the one to get it since he/she has the receipt to verify if an edu discount was placed on the macbook.
