    Hi, I hope someone can help me.

    Basically, I went to the Apple Store in Bluewater today to purchase a 15inch Macbook Pro with the anti-glare option. I was told that they only offer the anti-glare option on the top spec 15inch and if I wanted it on the lower spec'd machine then I would have to order online.

    No problem I thought, but, I wanted to get my discount as I work for Barclays. I think I get 8/9% for Macbook Pro's - Does anyone know?

    Anyway, does anyone know how I go about getting the discount online/over the phone? I know my mum works for NHS and she is signed up to nhsdiscounts.com and that gives you a link to the Apple Store online and it automatically reduces the prices.

    I would call Apple now but they are closed and I thought that there might be someone who works for Barlcays and has done this before.

    I'm guessing NHS is a school in that case to use the education discount you need to go to the education store which can be located in the left column of the store (at least in the us) and I'm not sure how you would use your barclays discount online but if you call they should be able to sort it out.

    Hope this helps

    Using my powers of deduction the op used the word "mum" thus I deduce that NHS must mean National Health Service so the OP must be British :)

    Anyway, a quick google gave me this link: http://www.apple.com/eppstore/barclays

    But it seems to be a US based online store. When I've used my own EPP discount I've gone into a store with my employee badge or get a special link from a site like nhsdiscounts.com (it's beneplace.com).

    If I were you, without a link, I would try to order by phone. They will probably ask you to fax a copy of your badge or provide some proof of employment (just guessing as I don't know for sure).
