Employee purchase programme? How will that work?

some are more than 17% some are less. eg macbook is 6% off, iLife '09 is 18.25% off (very good deal for iLife) but it says employee purchase program, surely they know who their employees are?

Agreed, wouldn't recommend anyone to use this...unless you work for apple of course

I'm guessing it's not for Apple employees but for other organisations' staff benefits. I know Sky offer the same deal.

Yep, it's their affiliate program - not sure if they spot check it though. Not all products are a great buy - e.g the 2.4Ghz i5 15" macbook pro is just over £1400 here, while Amazon have it for less than £1300.

Be careful with this. I got checked on my second order using the student discount. Ironically I bought a mac book pro on the first order and iLife on the second. I was a student at the time so it was ok, but still. You don't want to get caught out!

Just find a school/college/university student and through them get a nice discount.
Macbook, Mac Mini, Apple TV etc. can be bought at 14% discount and Macbook Pro and Mac Pro's can be had for a 15% discount. Straight forward. Just get take the student and his educational Institute ID along and Apple will sort you in the store. Can be done online as well.
Plus: The student can get a rebate on iPods upto £130. Mate got a Macbook through a friends educational discount and the student got a Nano 16gb for just £22. Try it. (_;)

If you happen to know an actual Apple employee....your looking at a discount of up to 50%!

False! Apple staff discount is a lot lower than that

AFAIK Apple staff can buy a Mac, once a year, with a huge discount. Of course they won't tell anyone about it. At least it used to be there for full time employees.

all the items i placed in my basket, none of them had a discount!! I am looking for an imac though....

anyone shed some light on it?

this is not only for employees of Apple but also other companies. Yet, when ordering, your email address must match the associated company.

Even if you got an order through, I would assume that this is in violation of their T&C. Dodgy at best.

Voted cold for above reasons.
