    Hello, I'm interested in purchasing a new Macbook Pro (the 13" model, specifically).

    I have an NUS Extra card so am entitled to 15% discount. When going through the NUS website, the price of the 13" Macbook Pro is reduced to £859.20.

    When looking at Apple's education section, it says "And if you choose a Mac, save even more with Apple Education Pricing".

    I have attached an image from further down the page where it shows the Macbook Pro priced at £859.20 (it was already reduced as I was messing around with the option of purchasing through a university), with the option to save up to £184 with Apple Education Pricing.

    What I am trying to convey, is that is it possible to have both discounts (NUS 15% and Apple Education Pricing)?

    If so, how do I go about acquiring them.

    Thanks for your time.

    No, NUS discount is already student discount. They'd have coding in place to ensure you don't get both.

    In short, no you can't get both at once. You can use Quidco to get a further 3% back though, making it roughly 18% discount instead of 15%.

    You also get a £70 app store gift card if you buy before September so that's a further saving.

    Quidco actually gets you 3% knocked off the discounted price since Apple's edu store applies that pre-checkout, so it's more like 17.4% if I remember correctly :ahee:

    ^ Well you know what I meant, what I was saying is it's still a further discount you can get on top of the HE edu price, hence the word roughly.

    How would i go about getting quidco along with NUS discounts? Do i simply click the quidco link then, go to the address which gives me NUS discount?
