    I swung by Best Buy to check out the new rMBPs, and was a bit shocked when one of the sales clerks approached me like I was at a car dealership. After asking me what I was looking for and how much I was hoping to spend, he started playing around with different promotions and coupons to bring the price down.

    Anyone else have a similar experience? Just seems weird with the tight control that Apple typically has on the price of their products.

    I wouldn't say I haggled, but they happily matched Apple's student prices for me on a rMBP and an Airport Extreme. I am a student, btw... just an old one.

    Yea, I walked into Future Shop and told the sales rep: "I want this machine with the student discount, a case and the warranty should be free because I got bs service with my last product under your warranty."

    Came back with: "Sure, we can do that."

    From speaking with managers, no. They claim they have no room or can't alter the price, except for price match.

    However you can on open box items. I have gotten a couple of good deals at BB.
