Q: I am interested in buying an iPod using Apple’s educational discounts. I’ve selected what I would like to purchase. The items are in my cart and they’re are still the same price!

At what point do I apply my educational discount, and see what it saves me?

– Dave

A: To see the education discounts available to individual customers, you must access the Apple Store for Education. This is available via a link in the right hand column of the main Apple Store webpage, or here.

By accessing the Apple Store in this manner, every price you see has been preadjusted to reflect the educational discount. Note that the educational discount applies only to Apple hardware and software.

Only the following individuals can use the educational discount:

K-12 Employees (Not students):

  • Employee of public or private K-12 institutions in the United States
  • School Board members who are currently serving as elected or appointed members
  • PTA or PTO executives currently serving as elected or appointed officers
  • Qualified homeschools
  • Employee of a public or private, profit or non-profit preschool

College / University Employees and students:

  • Faculty or staff member of a public or private Higher Education Institution in the United States
  • Student currently attending or accepted into a public or private Higher Education Institution in the United States

Enjoy! You should be able to save $30 on any iPod, $20 on any iPod nano, and $10 on the 1GB iPod shuffle. Furthermore, you’ll save 10% on most Apple-branded iPod accessories.
