    i was wondering if apple stores give you the same discount (education, federal employee) as they do on apple.com ?

    The stores in the UK give you the discount that you are entitled too. I got 12% due to working at a college.

    Just need to provide the appropriate ID. They checked mine whilst I was there to see what discount I was entitled too

    Much better deal online/phone for UK students - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1103022

    I don't think it makes a difference in the USA.

    Do you mean college or university (some people use those interchangeably)? Because university staff get the same deals as university students in the UK. Colleges are different.

    Good on you then. 12% is a good discount for a UK college. Some I have seen are a lot less!

    I'm think it is around that (range about 5-10% depending on the product and model). You should just be able to walk in with an ID card without an issue.

    Only the UK has a complex student discount system where it is different online or in store and what type of uni you are at (but we can get 14% off and a 3 year warranty as standard :D).

    It's not a percentage discount in the US. For example there's a $50 discount on the MacBook, MacBook Air, Mac Mini, or iMac. There's also a $100 discount on a MacBook Pro and a $200 discount on Mac Pros.

    There's no discount on iPods, iPads or AppleTVs in the US education store any more.

    UK universities is 14% BUT if you buy online you get 3 year hardware warranty as standard but in store you don't.

    I bought my new MacBook Pro (15" w/ 2.3GHz quad i7, 4 GB RAM, 750GB 5400RMP hard drive, high-res anti-glare screen) at the Cincinnati Apple Store and they gave me the government/military discount no problem -- just had to show my ID card. Upgraded the RAM and the hard drive with aftermarket stuff -- was cheaper than the Apple upgrades would've been even with a discount. I think the discount on the configuration I got was around $250.
