    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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

    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.

    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 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.

    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?
