Good luck getting a discount. More like they will give you a gift card to buy more of their overpriced stuff

Seriously, google it. Apple doesn't discount shit.

Pm Mike K. He used to buy/sell apple shit iirc so he might have something you want.

Do a Google search for "refurbished apple" and it should be the first link. Apple sells the refurbished returns with a 12 month warranty. They're just as good as new.

Apple employees get one discount per year for themselves at like 10% and one for a family member at like 5%. Good luck finding someone who would give that up.

Your best bet would be to look for someone selling an apple gift card. Can save some bucks there.

Yea I thought of that. But you can use the card online and my luck i buy it for a cheaper price and the guy copies the info and goes and uses it online right after i buy it. Its hard to trust people on craigslist. Anyone here have one???

There are PINs that are on the cards. They have to be scratched off.

Apple does not give a fuck about employee's or anything but profit really.

I got a refurbished Ipad it was not too bad. Just remember to get one with a warranty and TEST EVERYTHING before your first 14 days is up. We tried to sell the refurbished units at work but there is not enough profit in them.

that statement is incorrect. my company just ordered 500 ipads and apple discounted them quite a bit.


i know when we did the prelims we ordered 10 and the schaumburg apple store knocked 55 off the price and gave us a 50 dollar gift card for each ipad.

I'm going to guess this guy does not need 500 of them.

no shit????

the point is, to say apple doesn't offer discounts is simply not true. :drums:
It is true. No retail discounts are given. Whole sale or bulk sales do not count. What you are saying in this discussion holds no water whatsoever with anyone here.

No retail discounts are given.? Ummm yeah, ok. Maybe not for one unit, but they are definitely given. We bought the test units right out the Schaumburg apple store. That's not retail?


What I'm saying is based on my fact on an open public forum. Don't like it, don't read it.

If I was more computer savvy I would post the receipt from our purchase but at this point its moot anyways.

Op. good luck with your purchase.

I think they're just trying to say that unless you plan on purchasing about 500 iPads, you're not going to get any kind of discount. I don't think the OP is looking to buy more than one.

It's comical that you have to spell this out for this guy.

I thought iPads read your mind and did everything for you? They are God's gift to the tech world aren't they?
