Does Micro Center accept the Apple educational discount for in-store purchases?


Does anyone know if I can use Apple’s educational discount on a computer purchase at the store? Thank you.

    Hey, Jonathan!

    Unfortunately, we aren't able to accept the Apple educational discount at this time. We do tend to run some pretty juicy sales on Apple products which—in my experience—can meet or even exceed the discounts that they offer on their list prices. If you're eligible for Apple's own educational discount, I'd recommend comparing the prices and availability to see which works best for you :)

    If you have any questions, feel free to reach back out or stop in store and speak to one of our Apple Specialists!

    Typically we beat their "education" discount without calling it and education discount. 95% of the time our normal, everyday sales are far more cost effective than anything they can offer.

    Hey - thank you for response. is now selling Mac Book Air M2 15" with $150 off for full time students. Is there a way you could adjust for the same in-store? If so - I'd be willing to buy one with my student ID in hand.

    I coudlnt price match that unfortunately but depending on where you're located , your local Microcenter may have some open box options. For example here in Rockville, MD (085) we have an open box 15" air for 1079.
