    You need to call Apple. They may offer a small discount.

    Yes, Apple has a corporate purchasing dept. 50 may not be enough though. Good luck.

    CDW or any other big reseller will cut you a small break.

    look at promotional companies ... I am sure there are some that sell them with corporate logos and such ... you might get a deal that way

    I'd suggest contacting Apple directly. I would also suggest that you shouldn't expect anything more than a 5% discount on the total order.

    Good luck, I was in touch with a corporate salesperson who gave me a zero discount on $100,000 worth of purchases, it was almost insulting - my local Costco gave me a heck of a deal (too bad they don't sell ipods anymore)

    If you don't have any luck at apple consider just going to best buy, target, walmart etc and using their credit card to get the rewards. It might not be a cash discount but there isn't a lot these stores don't sell that you might not have bought anyways. It could be better than your discount. You might also get a 10% discount just for opening a credit card at target/best buy which would be just as worthwhile if you add that to their reward zone stuff.

    You might be able to get a small amount of cashback if ordering from Apple online.
