    So im a Canadian resident and have fallen in love with all things mac except the prices. what can i say im a cheap skate.

    So my question to you is, is there any websites or stores that sell mac products slightly cheaper. The american seem to have macmall.com and macconnention.com which offer slightly cheaper prices.

    Is there any one in Canada that does this?

    Thanks for your help in adavance.

    If you or members of your immediate family work for major Canadian or provincial companies (e.g. Bell, CTV, Bank of Montreal...etc...) you may be eligible for Apple CEPP savings. I think it's like 6% off or something. The same program runs in the States. One way you can check is by going to http://www.apple.com/ca/cepp/company and replace the "company" with whichever company you or your family work for.

    Another savings option, is Black Friday, this year slated for November 26. This is the only day out of the entire year that Apple is known to have a sale, and you can usually save around ~$100 on a Mac. This sale runs in Canada as well as the States, and a few other countries I believe.

    Otherwise, I don't believe there are any discount sites or stores for Macs in Canada, unless you buy Refurb, which is always an option.

    Happy shopping!

    Well when you enter the Apple CEPP online store, you legally agree to terms stating that you/family are part of that company. And that's it. They may audit from time to time though.... but don't try and cheat the system.

    The refurb store is my favorite place: store link

    Bought two iMacs and four or five iPods for various family members.
