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...

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.

When you buy through such a discount, do you have to show proof that you're an employee? I've purchased through the education store, and while I am a university student, they asked for no proof of verification that I was a student, so basically anyone could get the discount. I wonder if they've changed that...

CEPP = Corporate Employee Purchase Plan

I've never seen 15% either we get 10% on new product, no discount on refurbs which sometimes still works out a lot cheaper. I can buy at any Apple Store as long as I show proof of employment or order online.

Yep, just need to show proof you work where you do, just like if you go into the stores and want to use the education discount.

Or just fire up the CEPP of your choice at F Shop or B Buy (Before you talk to them) and get them to price match.

It also states you can be a family member. Besides bringing the employee with you, I wonder how you would prove you're family?
