Does Apple offer this?
how about edu discount on black-Friday deal?
I'll echo the no on refurbs. However, your educ discount will still apply to things like AppleCare for that refurb, which can be a significant savings.
Probably not. I don't believe Apple lets you stack discounts like that. However, I don't know this for sure.
Wait, I get an edu discount on Applecare?
Nope, they don't
I did when I bought my iMac in August. It was only like $30 but it helps.
You certainly can.
Is that it?!? What system did you purchase? I bought a refurb MacBook Pro in April and saved $120 CDN on AppleCare for it with an educ discount.
Hate to break the string of 'nope,' but my education discount DOES apply to refurbs.
Edit: Actually, it appears to depend on the model. I know that MacBooks have it, but pros don't. Could've been me misreading or something else quirky.
You should look on ebay for even better prices, I didn't know about this before (be sure to buy from a reputable seller)
Applecare is more expensive for laptops than iMacs, so therefore my discount wasn't as much. I just checked the Apple store. Without discount Applecare is $169, with discount it was $119, so I actually saved $50. Again, not much but it helps.
I concur: The generic education discount at the apple store doesn't seem to apply to refurbs.
One thing to note is that it's a sliding scale--it's like $100 on a MacBook, but $200 on a base Macbook Pro.
And yes, the discount on Apple Care is huge--on a MBP it's $350 without the discount, but $230 with.
Big difference, and brings the price down into the range of the lowest prices you'll find on ebay.
