    Ok i am writing this on behalf on my mother who is a teacher. She ordered a Macbook white on the apple site using the student / teacher discount and the order is done and the shipping status is ' Preparing for shipping ' But the only problem is she used my dad's ( her husband's ) credit card to buy it and she is worried apple wont ship it now because my dad is not a teacher and that is the billing address. The shipping address is hers though

    Will they ship it or not ? :confused:

    If it's saying prepared for shipment / preparing your order has been processed and is being packed for delivery.

    All authentication has been completed and your Mum is on her way to getting a new MacBook!

    No my mother didnt want a ipod touch because you have to buy it first and then send away for a claim or something. She didnt like the idea and clicked 'No thanks' to my disapointment she could of bought it for me :(

    You can still try to get it. have her call Apple and see what they can do, or go into a local apple store(if you have one). Just give her the money now and tell her to give you the rebate check when it comes!

    We dont live near a apple store if we did she proberly would have bought it there. I checked 3g mobile's website as we live near a 3g store but they sell Macbooks with less harddrive space ( it got defaulted to 160 gig last nite on the apple store ) and 1gig ram not 2gig and also they dont give you iLife free. Anyway all is ok now as long as she gets the Macbook :)
