I am really surprised on how fast Apple contacts you with questions. I wrote Mr Cook an email asking if they would ever thing of doing a veteran's discount. I am attending school in june so I wont get the VA benefits till then so paying full price is out of the question just because of income wise. If there was a VA discount I would buy it right there and then. But point of the story is. I wrote the email early in the morning and around 7 o'clock I had Apple calling me saying they were sorry they don't have a Veteran's Discount, but they have the education discount. Really fast response time and very personal experience. I guess that's why they continue to have great customer support.
