    Upon reading the list of Stores that offer Military Discount to members of the Armed Forces here in the UK, I spotted Apple's name on the list, with the words (Online Purchases Only) next to it, Ive looked on the Apple site, and cannot find any mention of this discount.

    Can anyone confirm this? If so how can I get the discount when Im placing an order?

    Why don't you just call the Apple Store Online and ask?

    Normally with Apple there's a gateway site you visit which redirects you to the relevant discount page. Check out your service's own intranet and do a search for discounts. It should include the right link.

    Pick up a copy of the Forces Discount Directory from your Admin/Gen office it will tell you everything you need to know about getting discounted Apple gear.

    I purchased my Macbook Pro over the phone and got the Military discount. I think the student discount is more though.

    To be honest having looked at the Forces Discount Directory the savings aren't big in any respect, and in some cases no discount. You need an account with Forces Discount Directory, which requires a service number and service record. This then gives you access to the Apple gateway. You could always ask the DA if they are recognised as an Educational Establishment with Apple, for a student discount.

    As an example, prices with forces discount for a MBP:

    Hope this helps.
