Apple Discounts

I was at an Applestore the other day and someone who worked for RBC walked in and got a 15% discount on her purchase. It got me thinking. I know there is an Educational discount that Apple provides, as well as a 25% Employee Discount and a 15% friends and family discount, but what other discounts does Apple provide? I would love to see a breakdown, maybe some people in our community are eligible for discounts that they aren't even aware about!

15% is pretty steep.

The standards discounts are EPP (Employees of certain companies) and EDU (Education).

But the EPP is nowhere near 15% I'd say it's 5-10% depending on how expensive the item is.

EDIT: The RBC EPP Online store is accessible by anyone here:
Apple (Canada) - RBC

Note that the prices are not 15% off...

There's the 5-finger discount, but I don't suggest that.

Thanks for the link... I wonder what the pricing strategy is... Discounts are not as deep as the EDU store on some items (MacBooks) but deeper on others (iMacs)... very interesting...

Depends on what you're buying

Some EPPs had a bigger discount on Software vs. Hardware.

Software (Apple software only) got %15 or so off while hardware was %8 or so.

Cool, thanks for the list and all the links! Interesting, the few I checked do indeed sell iMacs cheaper than the education discount.
(Bottom model is $1199 regular, $1149 education discount, $1127 employee discount).
Not quite enough to bother going in and picking up a quick job temporarily at McDonalds or Starbucks, LOL.

Agreed, but if you have a friend who works at any of the establishments, its a good way to save a little dough.
