    I might be late on this, but is Apple no longer offering education pricing on iPad?

    I don't think they ever did on the ipad. It's always been on computers and computer warranties as long as I can remember. There was some deal for the ipad 2 around the start of school year, but it wasn't an ed discount, it was like get a gift card or something to that effect.

    Agreed. I don't think they ever did for iPads.

    I definetely remember they did, because I tried to convince my mom to use it when she got hers but she didn't. It was only $50 off for the normal iPad, but still, that's $50 that could be yours.

    I don't think they offered it for individual iPads. I think it was for educational schools, and you would have to buy 6 in a bundle do get $50 each one

    Never within 90 days of launch. They'll do EPP and EDU discounts after January 1 (Per Apple Customer Relations)

    I don't believe Apple has offered a discount since the iPad2 came out. That said plenty of retailers, esp. online, offer discounts to all. Micro Center in particular for B&M. Wouldn't shocked if they had a Black Friday deal.

    Yeah it wasn't 50 actual bucks. This was the deal I mentioned that happened at the start of the school year. They offered 50 buck gift card to itunes if you bought an ipad 2 in september to begin the new school year. It's similar to the deal they have done with computers, where they have variously given away iPods, gift cards to the app store, etc.

    The deal I'm talking about is the way it is on macs right now: Where you compare the store to the education store and it has a lower price. It was only $50 lower.

    I used my EPP to get a discount on the 4th gen iPad w/ LTE. Not much mind you, but it was available.

    Sorry, was referring to the mini, and other "new" product "launches" ... guess they don't consider the 4th gen a new product.

    No way. They wouldn't offer such a large discount on a product that only costs $499.

    They only give $20 off the mac mini for the education discount.
