    if you bought your MBP at Best Buy? I called apple and they said I could and directed me to apple.com/promo but there is no option when I wan to select a location.
    I called again and they did not seem to know...

    Should i email?

    i believe that promo is only when you buy directly from apple.

    You can't. However, Best Buy will give you a $100 Best Buy gift card to response to the B2S sale. You just have to ask for it.

    Yes, at first i thought I would not qualify, but on the FAQ it says:

    "I purchased my Mac from a location other than an Apple Retail Store, the Apple Online Store, or 1-800-MY APPLE (e.g., Best Buy). Am I eligible for a Back to School Card?
    No. Purchases must be made through the Apple Online Store, an Apple Retail Store, 1-800-MY-APPLE, or an Apple Authorized Campus Store. "


    So doesnt that imply that you can get the rebate if you purchased through Best Buy??

    I cannot because I already graduated college and have no desire to cheat the system.

    best buy gives you a $100 gift card for best buy, which IMO is a lot better than apple's itunes card
