Reply 3 of 8 eman Posts: 7,204member October 3, 2002 2:43PM Even though I've always known high school students couldn't, why can't high school students buy stuff with the education discount? We're students too!

AndrewWhy was I not informed about these things while she was at college? Reply 6 of 8 logan Posts: 284member October 5, 2002 10:28AM Well when I go into the Apple Store under education and pick my school and all that, I can go in and it will let me order the iPod for less but will they send it if I am just a student? Reply 7 of 8 chych Posts: 860member October 5, 2002 6:20PM Hmm, I'm not terribly sure how Apple makes sure that the person who orders the computer is a student of that school... I didn't have to fill out any forms or anything for my ipod or computer... so, just pick a local college and ship it to your address :cool: Reply 8 of 8 amorya Posts: 1,103member October 6, 2002 2:05PM I ordered an iPod on edu price - I'm 17 so I'm not really eligible, but I ordered it anyway (I think the fact I have a VISA card in my name helped) and it worked.Amorya Sign In or Register to comment.
