    Except it usually takes Amazon 1-2 weeks to get new models in. I just called and they said not arriving tomorrow. They don't know when tho... they can just see it won't be tomorrow. LOL

    Why? Does Amazon charge tax to NYC residents?

    Someone posted the exact same thread over a half hour ago. This board is cluttered enough right now.

    edit* You even posted in that thread! And just copied and pasted the OP's links. Jeez dude

    Couple of years ago former governor paterson signed a bill to charge tax on internet orders to NY.

    amazon does charge tax to NYC. At least newegg does not charge tax to NYC (for now), so I'm not sure whether it has to do with any bills. Amazon has a warehouse in NY, while newegg's closest warehouse is in Edison, NJ

    has anyone confirmed what options the apple stores will have tomorrow? I leave for 3 weeks to Asia on Sunday and would like to get a new 11" before I go, but think it's a BTO option that I want

    I want the 11" with i7, 4GB, but the 128GB and not the maxed out 256GB.

    TIA

    They have the stiff-tax in Texas too (Apple has corporate offices in Austin). It is an 8.25% sales tax on all orders from the Apple Store, which amounts to about $160 extra on top of a $2000 purchase.

    NY is pretty aggressive at identifying "business presence" (thus triggering the requirement to collect tax). They also go after individuals fairly aggressively, since you are supposed to report out-of-state purchases on your tax form and pay tax on them.

    I live in CA also and took the Apple store educational discount/Discover cashback route.


    price of 13" mba - 1249
    tax for me - 89
    5% cashback - 62
    giftcard - 100
    total price - 1175

    total price comes out to 1175 compared to 1249. So you are basically paying 25 dollars extra for a $100 dollar giftcard and free printer if you elect to do that.

    They go after individuals fairly aggressively? your kidding right? Just b.c there is a section for it on your tax form doesn't mean they are strict about it nor do they have the capacity to go after everyone in ny who doesn't report their online purchases, which almost no one does.

    Which part of CA are you in? I'm planning on buying one as well, but I don't know how to get the Discover 5% cash back. I've got a Discover card, but their website says that the 5% cash back is only good for hotels and gas. Can you please explain how it works? Thanks.

    Click on their websites that offer discounts.
    They have like 100 online websites and Apple is one of them.

    It's my Bday month so I get 2% back and I'm just going to get it in store.

    I have a $1250 limit and I'll be like $30 over my limit and I don't know if I'll get 5% back while using 2 cards (online).

    So I'm going to have to use 2 cards in store. I'll get 2% back (so around $35 less cash back) but I'll get it today? Lol

    Gotta try n look at the positives.
