    Basically wondering if there is any chance I can still get discount. I finished uni in July but haven't graduated yet (5th Nov.) So am I still a student in apples eyes? (UK)

    Picture says "before you graduate", so you haven't graduated yet. You're a student.

    lol you can get away with a student discount without being a student, as long as you looks the part they wont ask for student id

    Last year I was asked and he checked the date as well, took a good look at the photo too. My student ID expired end of October.

    The Apple store here won't give an educational discount. They tell you to order online, where there are no checks.

    I went to my uni today and I can still log in. So am going to buy tomorrow (still not decided between 2.4 mb and 2.4 mbp)

    Do apple uk do any checks for orders online. Even if they do query me I think I have a strong argument.

    apple will check if you online

    however it is not everybody that gets "audited"

    i had to provide a student id and class schedule to get my discount back in the day
