Tap Into the Official Discount Programs
Can you prove that you’re a student (college or higher), educator, or otherwise part of the staff at an education organization? Then you probably qualify for Apple’s student discount. This can help you save a couple of hundred dollars on Apple devices too, and the application process is very straightforward. The downside is that this is limited to Macs and iPads, so you won’t be able to pick up a new iPhone with this option. The good news is that, unlike refurbished products, the education discount applies to the very latest Apple devices, so you can snag new 2022 models.
But wait! That’s not the only discount option that Apple provides. If you can verify your status as a military member or veteran, you can receive a 10% discount on any products that you may buy directly from Apple. Similar deals are extended to government employees for some devices.
