This company, they really can't throw you a bone....

Nothing on the new Mac mini.
I buy used or refurb. I can afford their prices, but I can’t bring myself to spend that much on their gear.

Early adopters change their mind and I save 25-30%. That suits me fine.

Apple has even buckled down the educational discount. It used to be easy to get.

25-30%? Where? I’m looking for a 2018 mba or 2017 mbp. Haven’t found a used pro at that kind of discount.

This checker ... it really works. The popular configurations often appear and disappear fast. Everyday there are changes with popular configurations appearing once a week or every few days.

Refurb is only 15% whereas student and gift card is around 8%; not really a huge discount as 25% unfortunately. Sometimes it’s better to get the student discount with beats and sell the beats for cash.

Whoah Whoah Whoah! Slow down there speed racer. They can't just give the farm away like this. It has to be store credit. That way you can trick them into buying something else marked up 500%. Pshh you can't just rely on one off sales. You have to trick customers into an entire ecosystem they can't escape. Hence using iOS updates for intentional obsolescence of older devices.
hahaha!

i'm not in a cult,
i just worship the guy on stage
defend our beliefs to the death, even when shown the smoke and mirror deception
happily risk life and limb for the next message/product form central command
identify more as a member of apple than humanity
I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.

I’m pretty sure you can get AppleCare afterwards online. So the question is really whether. Saving $50 is worth getting a refurb. Too bad the gift card deal doesn’t apply to refurb.
Where does it say the gift card doesn't apply to refurb?

Thanks!

This used to be an option on the refurb.me site - I wonder what happened to it.
Really useful for sought after items that are often up for only 30 minutes to an hour before they are sold out.

I'm looking for a 2017 MacBook Air with an i5 processor and 512GB drive.

Has anyone come across one?
Checked the Apple store, Staples and Best Buy, no luck.

Can the apple gift card be used on applecare? I assume so, but hoping someone can chime in.
Yes it can

Nowhere... but if you try and check out, you can clearly see the $280 promo card doesn't apply.
