Hi all,

I got a new MacBook in my first week of term (about 4 weeks ago), and i've just seen that Apple are now doing rebates for students in the UK if you buy an iPod with a MacBook.

What do you think are the chances of them sorting this out for me as I have effectively been screwed over for having a longer term than most students? And how do you think I should go about contacting them? I couldn't find a contact email, only phone numbers that look like premium charge ones.

Thanks for reading,
QUOTE Thanks

My very amateur opinion would be to call a store or apple care and ask for customer service number.

I had a similar problem. I bought my Macbook and the price dropped $100 the next week. I called Apple and asked them what could be done. They credited me the difference, no questions asked.

However, I believe Apple has a 14 day no-questions-asked return policy. Had they not refunded the difference, I could have returned the machine and bought another for a cheaper price. This wasn't my first choice though, because I had spent a week installing software and would have had to start over. At any rate, I'm not sure if their policy is the same if you purchased over 14 days ago.
QUOTE Thanks
