ok my sister got accepted to a college this year and she cant come to the store when we go to budy a mac pro but my mom has a letter that shows that she goes there or something like that. so my first question is does my sister have to go to get the discount? second do we have to lie and say like its a present for my sister or do they not care that its for me and not her?
thanks

A student may make specific numbers of purchases of hardware. That doesnt mean they're for him/her. AFAIK, the education discount doesnt work at the Apple Store, but I could be wrong. Why not just buy online, and go through their hoops... it's free shipping.

Yes, they have an online education store. You select your school and attest that you are a student or staff and off you go.

I would think you would have to provide student ID and proof of enrollment. Something only the student can do. The worst they can do is say NO! GET OUT, WE'RE CALLING THE COPS!

You can buy with an educational discount via the stores if you have your student ID. They usually have a little book of all of their supported establishments.
