    In regards to the glitch with the back to school gift cards..

    I've been advised by Apple live chat (after waiting 30 minutes!) that the processing department is manually adding gift cards for all orders TODAY, and tomorrow the issue will be fixed.

    So for the mean time I was advised to remove the gift card and checkout as usual and they should add it to my order manually as long as I'm purchasing through my school's store..

    Cheers folks.

    Perfect. I just did that and hopefully it will all get taken care of later.

    Now I'm just hoping we get a solid ETA on shipping w/ expedited. The wording is confusing.

    "Available to ship in 5-7 business days
    Delivers within 2-3 business days after shipping by 2-3 Business Days"

    I just called and he said the same thing. Delete the card, they will automatically take care of it. No need to call in or anything.

    I was able to place my order with the B2S card in the cart. I added everything needed until you get to the checkout now screen. From there, I clicked on the store banner, then highlighted my cart, then hit checkout. Everything worked but the discount for the card did not apply to the final balance. Per the apple chat rep, they will remove the charge for the B2S card after you place the order or you can checkout without it and they will manually apply it. Hope this helps!

    I got:

    15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display
    Available to ship in 5-7 business days
    Delivers within 2-3 business days after shipping by 2-3 Business Days (Paid the $15 for expedited shipping.)

    Configuration
    2.7GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz
    16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
    512GB Flash Storage

    I prob would of upgraded the 512GB Flash to 768, but it added a 3-5 week ship time. 5-7 days will be bad enough to wait. :)
