Apple Now Offering Education Pricing on iPads – Save $20 – $30

Apple has extended education pricing to iPads. The discounts in the Apple Store for Education range from $20 to $30, which while modest, are better than nothing.

Education pricing is available to those working or studying at an institution of higher learning: students, faculty, staff, and parents of students. Employees of K-12 schools are also eligible.

Discounted iPad prices for the base 16GB wifi models are:

  • iPad mini: $279 ($20 off)
  • iPad mini with Retina display: $379 ($20 off)
  • iPad Retina display (4th Gen): $379 ($20 off)
  • iPad Air: $469 ($30 off)

The discounts look to be still rolling out internationally, as the pricing is available in some countries, but not yet all.

    First, I never understood the greed of one of the richest companies. Their edu pricing is a total joke. Much less prominent companies offer much more generous edu discounts. (…I know some smartA person will chime in the “Apple is not required to offer edu discounts…yeah, well, thanks. Now go back and finish your cereal.)

    And second, Apple’s edu pricing is for everyone. Most just don’t know it…

      Apple’s educational pricing was NOT available to “everyone” when I worked at an Apple Store. We required customers to show proof of the edu requirement.

        Technically, you’re supposed to show a student ID or a class schedule when purchasing -any- Apple product with an education discount.
        Last time I used the student discount, I had to show a current class schedule.

          We also would allow the discount if they could log into their *.edu e-mail account. 🙂

            Epic. That means 90% of the U.S. qualifies. 🙂

            Well yes – But not “everyone.” 😛

    Too bad the education pricing hasn’t reached the Philippines yet. It’s on Macs, but not yet on the iPads.
