    I couldn't find any info searching on this and was wondering if anyone knew if you could use the Federal Government Employee prices in a brick and mortar store?

    Thanks.

    Best to call your local Apple store to confirm for what it is you want to buy; but, I have purchased both software & a computer with my gov't discount before. Just bring your ID.

    There was one situation which we couldn't do something in the store - might have been software for education (teacher wife), however.

    Hope that helps.

    Yep

    At least when I worked there (through 2005), you could get a gov't discount with ID on hardware only. Software discounts only apply online.

    I don't know if it's a new policy or I just got lucky with a nice salesperson, but I got the Fed discount at the Fashion Valley (San Diego) store on Leopard and on third party iPhone accessories.

    Anyone know if federal government employees in Canada get a discount as well?

    It may depend on your store. At my local stores, you can get the Federal Employee Discount on quite a few items. Just present your ID badge at the place, and they'll do it for you. The discount also seems to work for getting Apple Care.
