Feel free to rep if you have benefitted from this deal! I'm not very well blessed with reputation..! :)

Apple run this deal most years, and it's a very good one.

If you are a student, at school, college or university, or a lecturer, teacher.. anyone involved with education, you qualify for this deal.

Essentially, you buy a qualifying Mac, which are the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and iMac, with the price discounted by approximately 13% (for university students, this varies), add an iPod to your basket, and add the HP PhotoSmart Printer to your basket too.

Apple will refund you, via a new rebate process which requires no sending forms off (this is what I have heard) just simply filling in a form online with the codes from your items when you receive them, £130 against the cost of the iPod (you can order one more expensive than this, and receive the £130 discount) and £70 against the cost of the printer (which is it's total cost - again, you could choose a nicer printer, and get a £70 discount).

For a quick example, let's choose the basic MacBook Pro, starting at £999:

So a normal customer pays £999.

Here:
£999 mins 13% discount: £869.13, already a handy discount.
Free iPod for value £130, let's say you could sell that for £100 if you wanted, and take off against the value of the computer.. £769.13.. and free printer for value £70, let's say you could sell that for £50 if you wanted.. £729.13.

That puts the saving off of list value at ~£270.. more than 25%! With the selling example I am just trying to give a monetary value for the saving you're getting here.

Ask me if you have any questions, but this is a very hot deal for a new Mac, which usually isn't discounted at all.

EDIT: As an educational deal, Apple also offer AppleCare, the 3 year extended warranty plan, for much much less.. check it out on the educational Apple Store.

EDIT 2: Printer rebate expires today! Free iPod deal will continue until September 7th 2010, but free printer deal only applied TODAY.

3-Year hardware warranty is usually included with all educational purchases, and you can add full Applecare cheaply to top up that hardware warranty to include telephone support. See http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/248/8352/1352/store.apple.com/Catalog/uk/Images/salespolicies_individualHE.html#topic-10 "10.1.1 All Apple-branded desktop and portable computer products sold after October 1st 2005 within the framework of the HE National Agreement shall be subject to a 36 calendar month warranty period (the HE National Agreement Warranty) commencing from the date of delivery."

Can we use Quidco for this?
#2
What model is the IPod and Printer?
#3
iPod can be any model, £130 comes off of that value. If you head to the apple uk website, click on store, and look down for the £70 off a printer rebate, it lists the exact specifications of the printer there. Quidco I'm not sure I'm afraid.

really good deal for anyone thinking of a Mac, still a bit too much for me but great for someone else. Thanks




Thats wierd just given some heat and the number went down...definitely did not make a mistake...wierd.
#6
Don't forget you get applecare a LOT cheaper when buying a mac as a student too, talking another £100+ saving
#7
Ah yeah, forgot that about AppleCare - as a student it is a very good deal, will put it at the bottom of the post, thanks.
#8
bought my student mac on sat, called them today just enquiring about it (was thinking return it and buy another), they said bring the receipt and hey presto, ipod and printer are yours. excellent excellent

macbook with 3 year warranty 750
with ipod and printer for free

To be fair, any good laptop, printer, ipod, and warranty would cost the same if not more
Just excellent in my opinion,
#9
If you go through a university network it's cheaper still. Macbook pros start at 858 and Macbooks at 730.

EDIT: Why did I say that? It's clearly already stated :)
#10
If only I had some money to pay for one of these :-( HOT DEAL!
#11
Smokin' HOT
#12
You actually get a 3 year limited parts warranty too for free if (if you ask when buying!). There is not much that Apple Care covers in addition to this.

Apple Care will come and collect your computer to be fixed. With the warranty you have to take it in. So better served for desktops and those not near at Apple retailer.

Yes, naturally they don't give you money for buying a cheap iPod..? Sorry if I didn't make that clear.
#16

Yes, should work in store with student ID - obviously only official Apple stores, not PC World or anywhere.

Do you have a uni acceptance letter? Take this to the Apple store and I'm sure they'll sort you out - maybe give them a ring first and just check :thumbsup:
#23
Can I buy an ipod from other website (cheaper~~) and rebate £130 later?

Nope, have to be bought at the same time from Apple.

This is not quite true if you have purchased a laptop in the last 2 weeks you can still get the ipod free you just need to call them up and get them to put a note on the account and then they will rebate it off two separate orders.
#27
Excellent deal, and remember all educational purchases come with a 3-year hardware warranty included, with the option of topping up to full AppleCare at low cost to include telephone support.

H+R from me.

Just double checked with an Apple rep about the warranty, it is 100% still included in price:

Chat with Apple

• Hi, my name is Shreta M. Welcome to Apple!
• How may I assist you today?
• Hi, is the 3-year hardware warranty still included with all educational purchases?
• Absolutely! Which Mac are you purchasing today?

Where does it say this? I was considering getting the apple care but if all purchases come with it I don't really need the telephone support.

EDIT: ah I see it's been added to the original post now.

HOT! I never update my mac until this time of year because I know the free ipod deal is going to run. Gives you an extra 100+ off the cost, as well a another £40ish off if you sell the printer!
#31
What students have nearly a grand to spend on an Apple Mac ? A decent laptop would work out much cheaper.
You can get a Dell Inspiron 15 for £379 delivered and have plenty of money left over to pay for booze/ dope/rent.
#32
I would wait until the iPod Touch update.

Because

1: Most Degrees are 3 years or longer (good look with a cheap dell lasting 3years of everyday use).
2: Lots of courses for design/media use macs.
3: Because they would prefer a mac.

I'm sure there are lots of other reasons........

Quite often the iPod updates happen in September.. coinciding with the end of this promotion! Not necessarily, but sometimes.

Apple time it every year to end just before new models release. Its a good way of giving something extra to the deal and clearing the old stock for the new models.
#36
Hey does anybody know which number I should call to claim the ipod & printer? I purchased my imac just last week online from my uni and didnt know about all this free stuff.
#37
Get clear with Quidco here:

Quoted from quidco website:

4% "is for retail purchases only, Already discounted student and education orders will not be awarded cashback."

True, but the Touch can be eBayed easily enough and get back at least £100 - £130 after fees I'd imagine.
