    You know like the 12 Month No interest. I heard about a Tax-Free day. I know about Black-Friday.

    Do you guys know any promotions that happen each year at Apple.com?

    Thanks really appreciate it.

    I searched for a topic like this but couldn't find any.

    Is worth the wait? Like for a MacBook (white) or an iMac 20"?

    Will it be like over a hundred dollar savings?

    Thanks

    Its worth it because they give you a free iPod touch or Nano with purchase of (I'm not 100% sure) Macbooks, Macbook Pros, and Macbook Airs. So thats about $200 off if you sell the iPod touch.

    Not tax free for Apple, but for the consumer (i.e. no sales tax). I know Missouri does this once or twice a year. Pretty nice to avoid a 7.5%+ sales tax on purchases, especially for a $1,000+ apple product

    No they don't... the local governments collect no taxes on the days which the program runs.

    As for actual promotions, there are none aside from the printer and .mac deals unless you're a college student or [of any level] educator.

    I believe Massachusetts is tax-free every day.

    Oh boy do I wish...I think you're thinking of New Hampshire. They have no sales tax.

    We did have a tax free weekend last year but I don't know if its coming back this year

    Up in California they charge tax. :(

    I think they just raised it to 8.75% :(

    Big difference if you're going to pay over $1,000

    The back-to-school promotion hasn't been officially announced yet, I don't think...
