Does Best Buy offer student discount for MacBook Pro?
I'd love to buy my mac from Best Buy but if they can't do the student pricing i'll just go down to (Competitor)

Apparently the website says "no" to ur question >.<

Hi - Best Buy has a great back-to-school offer on Mac Book Pro that is an even better value offer than what you have seen elsewhere. I suggest visiting a store near you and getting the details. A web site with details will be up soon as well.

I called my local Best Buy and they have no idea of any discount for Apple computers (or macbook pro). They only they had was a free data transfer :/ And they can't match (Competitor) student discount

I don't think the person you talked to properly described the promo that is available. It just recently started, so he might not be 100% familiar with the details. I don't have all the details available, but know that it has over $200 value - so should add a lot of value to the purchase of a new Mac.

No, Rudy was right, the "$200 value" consists of a Geek Squad member transferring your data to the new computer and having Geek Squad service for a year. That's $0 value for anyone who knows how to use a computer and it's not even close to the educational price savings plus $100 iTunes gift card you would get for purchasing (competitor). Not to mention you can purchase built-to-order upgrades from (competitor), which you cannot from Best Buy.

Last Friday I went to the store and their sales told me that there is currently no discount on the new MBP itself. And the back-to-school event isn't here yet. He said back-to-school discount usually comes in mid July or August, but I'm not sure how much discount we can get on the new MBP. Wondering if I should wait for this.

As of right now, Best Buy will be matching Apple Student Pricingf from July 13 - Sep 30. Come into the store and speak to one of the Computer Specialists for more details.
