    You Americans have no idea how lucky you are, that is some ridiculously cheap prices for high end electronics. When it comes to Europe all they do is switch the $ for a £ or € sign and call it a day :rolleyes:.

    Where the hell do you live that your sales tax is only 5%? It's 9.1% here in Arizona.

    Wisconsin, Maine, and Virginia has about a 5% tax rate. Oregon has none!

    We pay about 8.5% sales tax in Austin, but no state tax is deducted from our pay checks so I feel it kinda balances out. :p

    I highly doubt that they will give you $150 off best buys student price. The whole idea is that they will match apple not apply the discount twice

    I just tried it with my Student code and put in in my cart and it did in fact take $150 off the price.

    Wait so they gave you a special offer and also let you put in a student number as well?

    I believe so. Mine was $1274.99 pretax. $1380 with tax. This is the rmbp 13" with 8gb of ram and 256gb hd.

    The $75 discount also stacks with the $150 discount.

    Remember to add the mover coupon from the post office. Its a 10% coupon you could get from the post office. I got my pro retina 128gb 4gb ram for $1062.00 out the door. YMMV on the 10% coupon. Some bestbuy will not use the student discount and 10% coupon.

    ----------

    It will not send you the code. After you confirmed your email you will get another besbuy email to the link to print out your coupon.

    Do note, when they say one time use, they really mean it. Only intend to use the $150 discount on something you want.

    I used it online, pick up at store, all I needed was my driver license and credit card.

    Using the retina macbook pro 13 inch, many the fidelity on the screen is insane. I know Apple will release a 12 inch macbook air retina, but I think I'm finally happy with what I got.

    ----------

    This, $75 + $150 = $225 discount off of the computer. Good as any time to buy!

    Maybe I am doing it wrong...

    I got the email asking to confirm, which I did...

    Then I clicked the link saying I am enrolled, and it said watch my inbox for beals to arrive shortly.. But I never received a code. How do I get the $150 off?

    ----------

    can you use the mover coupon online?

    I did the same thing on memorial day sale, got the $75 off, $150 student discount and 10% off from the coupon, so $1216 out the door for a 13 inch mbp w/ retina 8/256. Some people don't have any luck applying the 10% off though so ymmv.

    So you have to apply the Mover's coupon in-store? There is no code for online use?

    yes mover code is only good for in store purchase. Like I said YMMV on the mover coupon. Some will let you and some will not (stack both coupons). You have to get lucky.

    What is the $75 discount? Where is that coupon?

    EDIT: Nevermind I see the $75 is already applied to the price.

    When does this offer expire? I am out of the country ATM :(

    Also, where does one get this movers coupon? Is there a link online? I'm going to try and stack them.

    10% movers coupon from USPS can only be applied in store and some stores might not let you stack the coupons
