    So, as the title says, I placed my order for a MacBook Pro through the online Apple Edu store and will be picking it up from my local Apple Store. What will I need to show them when I walk in? Just my order number and my ID?

    Student-ID i would guess. At least something that proves you are a student and qualifies for the discount :)

    Well I am not a student, but my mom is a teacher and she ordered it for me and put my name down as the one who will pick up. It's odd, though, because the pickup policy says that I just need to bring in an ID and the order number. Surely they'd want me to bring in some sort of Edu ID? Or maybe not? We've never tried this before so it's a bit new to us instead of just getting it shipped to us.

    Ahh... I thought you ordered it to yourself. Then just go down with ID and order number and hope for the best :)

    Haha nah, I wish, only one more year and then I'm off to college, but until then...

    Anyways, I guess that's what I'm going to do then. If they question anything I guess I'll just have to tell them that I read the policy and it just said to bring a government issued ID and the order number. It's not like they can deny giving me the order, can they? I mean my mom did already pay for it. We'll see how it goes when I go to pick it up tomorrow lol. Wish me luck, not that I should need it... Apple is usually great about things like this.

    Take your mum's teacher ID, as well as yours.

    You won't need to show any school ID when you pick it up. They only verify you're the actual designated pickup person (i.e. bring you personal ID). The school eligibility is taken care of when you purchased it online.

    Oh, okay. In that case I'll just bring my personal ID and order number and be done with it. Thanks for all of the input, guys!
