    So the free printer promo ran out 7/20. I called Apple last night and the guy said new info should be up on their website today and it will run thru October.

    Unfortunately, my local Apple Store currently has no printers under $200 - I wanted to get one cheap so this doesn't help. They also knew nothing about the printer promo being extended. 2 questions:

    -has anyone else heard about a new promo?
    -if you've been to a store recently, have they had printers available?? (online they are backordered for weeks, which leads me to believe many store might be out too?)


    thanks-

    I went to a store locally on the 19th of this month and they had the $99 Canon printers along with the $150 wireless Canons. You could always try online?

    I don't know why Apple puts dates on when these deals end, they just renew the deal the day after.

    With the deadlines, people think, "oh god, I might not get one if I don't go now!" Plus, if you don't give people a deadline they will wait and wait then b**ch when there is nothing left.

    no luck

    Bought my MBP tonight in Salem MA. Only printer they had in the store was a $300 one. Oh well.....I didn't need a new one anyone, but I would have taken it if they had it!

    And do what with it?

    That's the problem with Americans. We buy and buy and buy until we have 87 of the same thing and we never do anything with it. It is so wasteful. Not only a waste of money, but a waste of fuels and materials and time and space.

    Smart move on apple. im not going to lie last year i was going to buy a splurge on it, instead of waiting until tax free weekend in georgia. i waited, but now it has been a whole year of waiting, and im glad, since the MBP 13 now blow out the white ones.

    this year im getting the Ipod and printer, but ill be selling the ipod, since i have an Iphone 16gb.

    I was planning to sell it to offset the cost of the computer, or give it to a family member. Sorry if that offends you.

    Not at all, but it's probably best to state that when you first mention it.

    I assumed you'd just keep it and do nothing with it, but giving it to someone who could use one is a fine idea.

    Yes, just buy the printer with your iMac, then fill out the rebate form.
