    If I go into a store, or purchase something online, what will I need to prove i'm a student?

    i just ordered a macbook pro online, and all i had to do was check a little box that said i was telling the truth that i was a student (which i am), but they required no other info than that.

    in the store i am not sure, but i am taking my little sister tomorrow to the apple store to get a new macbook and i will post up what they ask her.

    What I'm saying is that online, you put in the zip code of your school, click on it, then you're done.

    Also, if they do their jobs right, they will ask for proof that you are a student, whether it be a tuition bill, school e-mail or student ID. You'll also ned your drivers license

    :werd: You can play the "oh, seems I forgot it, guess I'll have to come back some other time" and it works fine. They'll just ask what school.

    I had to sign a paper when I bought my laptop in the store. Online, I just checked a box.

    I'd just make your purchase online to make it easier.

    I was asked if I had a student ID card or something... I showed it, and it was good enough for them. Canada Apple crew :wavey:

    What'd they make you sign? That's a little weird.

    It was basically the paper form of what you agree to when you signup online. It asked for my school information basically.

    It must not have been recently because they definitely don't make people sign anything...

    wifey and i hit up the 5th avenue apple store last night (open 24/7/365), and bought a 15" mbp, among other things, and all they asked her for was her drivers license and her student ID.

    Little late, but eBay is a good source for AppleCare at low prices - just make sure you get the correct one.
