    if you work for the government, make sure you tell them at the apple store...

    I got an 8% discount on my new iMac. :D

    that took $95 off the price.

    seems that apple won't mention this discount, so make sure you do.

    You can get this rate on Apple.com as well.

    its funny, ive used macs for 16 years.. i've bought perhaps 7 macs new in that time...

    when I went in the apple store, I told them this, and said do i get any special discounts? They said no. .

    by chance, I had my work shirt on, which prompted them to ask "do you work for the govt"? Yes? "do you have your id"?

    Had I not asked or brought up discounts, I would of paid full price.

    Hm, is it a flat 8%? That's better than the EDU discount (although the current free iPod w/ EDU purchase is a better deal). I'd check the Apple store myself, but it's down fore the iPod event.

    I meant flat 8% as in just 8% off whatever any machine costs, or if it varies by machine like the EDU pricing (you get $50 off the base iMac, $100 off the other iMacs, for example).

    Apple store is still down, so I can't look. :p
