Ed­u­ca­tion & em­ployee pur­chase plans

Use your work­place ben­e­fits to get money off a Mac

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

Ap­ple of­fers a num­ber of ways to save money on its prod­ucts through your place of work or study. If you’re a stu­dent or teacher, for ex­am­ple, you can save up to $200 on a new Mac through the Ap­ple Store for Ed­u­ca­tion. Ap­ple is pretty re­laxed about eli­gi­bil­ity for this deal, so as long as you have a stu­dent ID you’re good to go; sign up to Uni­days ( myu­ni­days.

com) and use the email ad­dress you re­ceived when you en­rolled. Sim­i­larly, teach­ers just need an ID card, payslip or other ID to prove their cre­den­tials.

Mak­ing work pay

Many larger workplaces are signed up to Ap­ple’s Em­ployee Pur­chase Pro­gramme (EPP), which of­fers dis­counts of vary­ing lev­els on many first- and third-party prod­ucts. This is avail­able on­line and in re­tail stores.

You can buy a lim­ited num­ber of dis­counted Macs, iPads, iPhones and iPods each cal­en­dar year, for your­self or friends and fam­ily. Check the terms and con­di­tions shown when you first sign in to your com­pany’s spe­cial EPP web ad­dress to con­firm th­ese lim­its.

If you’re a stu­dent or work in academia, you can get money off in the Ap­ple Store for Ed­u­ca­tion web­site.
