    I really want to buy a MBP so baaad, but I think it will be an even better purchase with the free iPod Touch...

    I know the trends for the past 4 years had been earlier and earlier in the year. Please spill the bean if you know the plan for this year... I am hoping for end of May before I go nuts... My local store still doesn't have the i7 with Hi Def for now anyways...

    Last week or so of May or first week of June, according to the last four years. Search for the thread; I know the approx. date because I read it on macrumors somewhere.

    I could have waited, but I wanted it now. I figured I already saved over $200 with my student discount.

    Plus I have an iPhone, so no need for an iPod Touch. However, I guess an extra $100 or so to sell it would have been nice.


    Oh well, when paying $2200 after taxes, $100 doesn't seem like much. :)

    Dates vary a tiny bit on the northern hemisphere (because of time zones) but never more than one day.
    Check my sig for the past dates, my guess for this year is May 27.

    Nah, it's earlier than that, isn't it? I remember last year it started before my finals were finished; was very depressing to see "back to school" promotions when "school" hadn't even finished.

    I'm waiting for the promotion to start; I'm not the sort who can afford to turn down a free iPod.

    Maybe it's not much, but it's still $100 -- enough to buy an ext. 500GB HD, a good dinner w/ the GF, including wine ;), a couple of fill-ups for the car, a nice case for your new toy, etc, etc.

    The current printer rebate offer is running until 26th May, so I would suspect the iPod Touch rebate would be offered any time after 27th May.

    College students, staff/faculty of higher education institutions, and K-12 faculty.

    ...essentially anyone who is eligible for the normal education discount.

    What kind of ID does Faculty of a University require at the store? I am a lecturer at the U of T, but they don't give you a faculty card of anything like that.

    Do they pay you? Bring in a pay slip. Sometimes you can even get away with just giving them your @xxxxx.edu e-mail address. It's not very stringent.

    LOL pay, good one. No the work I do is for free. We don't get any type of salary or per diem for teaching medical students. I'll have to coerce a student to go shopping with me.:rolleyes:

    Me too

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Although, I am really itching right now, but I know I will kick myself in the head when I see the promo in 2 months...
