Does anyone have an idea when the new quad-core imacs become available for apple employee discount?
I got mine using a military/federal employee discount the day it was announced, so I don't see why an employee discount wouldn't also be available right now.
if your an apple employee cant you just ask your boss or find out through Apple?
Usually depends on demand. I remember when I worked for Apple, the MBPs weren't available to employees for discount until 6 months after they were introduced...it varies product by product.
I am not an employee I am using someone else's employee discount. sigh hopefully it will be before the end of december
So why not have that "someone" ask Apple about the discount?
I really don't want to be annoying the person that's doing me the favor by constantly asking
Totally understand that there. I have a buddy anxiously waiting for his friend who works there to be able to order one for him... hopefully it will be soon!
lol tell him to come join me in the wait.
I really hope it's by this year and not in 6 months that's WAY too long to wait. I've been waiting since September for them to be released now I have to wait for the discount lol
shouldnt he be able to get his discount when they have them in the store?
I am guessing when the "Ships: 7-10 business days" changes to "Ships: 3-5 business days" I'll be able to get it.
No, they don't get listed in the Employee Store until demand settles down. As to how long that may be, who knows - but it's best to just have said person tell you as that person will have a fairly good understanding of when that occurs.
That's what I thought too but they haven't gone to work since the stores received it so I am clueless as of right now lol
by employee store do you mean online?
No, there is a store that Employees can access independent of the Apple Online Store.
Would an employee also get a "student discount"? How much savings are you anticipating by awaiting the employee discount?
You can't combine discounts, here are the terms.
I was told 25% by my person but I think that only works if they didn't already use the 25% that year or else it's 15% if they didn't already buy one for themselves. otherwise you get none
Apple Employee friend said 25% as well.
Apple doesn't keep track of how often the 25% is used...it's just in good faith. I used to use my 25% discount 2 or 3 times a year, asking fellow employees if I could use "theirs" if they weren't buying a machine in that year...so it evened out.
yeah the C2D is but not the quad
oh nice! yeah I wondered about that because my friend already made a purchase so I was like maybe they are just going to get it cuz it's a new machine lol. thanks for the info
Can you tell me how long it took for the items you bought to be up for the discount? I feel like I've been waiting forever lol some guy in this thread said it could take up to 6 months? is that true? You think hopefully by the end of month or at least year it will be up?
yeah it's simple I just hope the quad core comes out to soon! ahhhhh so anxious!!!
