    did it, about 6 days. I filled out the online rebate form in the apple store, the sales guy walked me through it.. if you have a mac account already it takes less than 5 minutes. with my printer and the ipod i got two rebate checks, one for 100 and one for 199

    yea, the ipod one is 299 right now :eek:

    im thinking the middle macbook 1199 + 32gb ipod touch 499 = 1700 = ~1850 (tax)

    so 1550 taxed aint bad :bowdown:

    do i just enter my student id number in the web-form or do i need to show class schedule or something :dunno:

    I didn't want to wait 2 months for a new laptop and I didn't think it'd be a free touch. :wtc:

    They asked for my Teacher ID at the store... I just signed in after and said I was a teacher... they asked for my school, but no proof...

    I got a mid-line macbook, touch, and printer for $1725...
    $299 rebate for the touch...
    $99 rebate for the printer...

    After rebate $1325... not bad...
    bought it Tuesday, and haven't gotten the rebate yet...

    I'm still bitter that i missed the current ipod deal but like, 10 days. I specifically asked the sales schmuck if there were any deals now, or coming up, specifically for ipods. He looked at me and said 'we havent had that for years.' I knew he was giving me bs, but didn't feel like arguing. Come to find out they anounced the current promo like a week later, and they wouldn't honor it.

    I thought if you're within 2 weeks you can either get the deal or return computer, rebuy and get the deal.

    im pretty sure apple will just reimburse you if you contact them, no returns necessary :dunno:

    either way, they've been doing this iPod deal every summer for the last couple years at least, this is just the first time its been aligned to my buying schedule

    same deal for all rebates... there is always a sizable group of people that forget about the rebate, and the company makes money from them that way...

    :dunno: They claimed that i could return my macbook, pay the $200something restocking fee, then re-purchase everything with the ipod and get the deal... but that would be completely offset by the restocking fee. So i didn't screw with it that much.

    Thought about doing the student discount deal but it's too late now. Got back from vacation and they had already ordered my new machine. It was sent to me today.
