    Hi,

    I am under 18, and I am still in full time education. I would like to buy something with the educational discount. If I go to an Apple retail store, will I be able to claim the discount? I have an ID card that says I'm under 18. Alternatively, would I be able to order from the online store at my age?

    If you have a college ID/transcript/class schedule/acceptance letter, they will give you the discount in-store. To get ASDC, you have to sign up online and I think fax them your class schedule that has at least one computer-related class. Then you get accepted and can buy with a once-in-a-lifetime discount from the ASDC store.

    Not quite that far along the educational highway yet :rolleyes:

    Best I've got there is a School Timetable..? I'm in the UK by the way.

    You have to be in higher education to get the higher ed discount. (Past secondary school)

    That's a shame. Are you sure about that? Seems pretty unfair, as I'm certainly in Education!

    I should have snapped up the Black Friday deal! (They were the same as the educational prices in the UK)
