Here's my thinking. If Friday is a sale day for Apple, why couldn't I order today and if my system goes on sale Friday I can just ask for the difference as a refund? Since they have a 14 day price match policy I figure I'm covered. Right? Would Friday be an exception to this? I still am not confident about the educational pricing thing. I've heard both sides.....no you cannot stack the EDU pricing and a sale price, and yes you can. Apple chat does not seem to know either.
