Hi sorry,
I was just wondering, do Walmart let employees use their discount on the iPad 2?
Thanks
Jack

Most retailers will not let employees use their discounts on items until there are enough stock so that it doesnt sell out immediately.

steve jobs does not want you to get a discount on his beloved products. That's his doing.. unless it's an outdated model or it's refurbished

Can someone on a Walmart paycheck afford an iPad? Discount or otherwise?

YES people who work for Walmart can afford an iPad. They work very hard for their paychecks and they should be treated just like everyone else who works hard.

Yes you can use your discount, I upgraded to a 64GB because of it. I ordered it online. If you enter your discount number during your online order you'll get it

*is a walmart manager*

Discounts apply although you may not see them in stock, I know my store didn't get iPad 2 yet.

Stores could restrict employee purchases if they want, but the discount can't be stopped.

When I worked at Wal-Mart (almost 10 years ago now) the manager wouldn't let us buy hot items that had low availability. I don't think they could block it in the system, but I figured they could track purchases with the discount card and didn't want to break policy. I tow the company line where ever I work any ways.

Get real. How many Wal-Mart employees do you think are buying iPads.

I am, my discount applies and no one has ever told me what I can and cannot buy in 12 years. Can't believe I even replied to this guy. Clown shoes

Some of the Walmart employees, such as managers and pharmacists, make some of the top salaries in their field, at least in my area. My girlfriend works part time as a Walmart pharmacist (making as good wages as her full-time pharmacy job), so if her discount applies, we will be getting an iPad 2 from Walmart. :apple:

I remember talking to a vzw rep a while back when they first started selling the iPad 1. I asked if they got a decent discount - she told me, that there was no employee discount for the iPad 1. I can only presume the same for the 2.
