I guess most of us know about the 80% adobe discounts for staff and students in education as well as some form of discount from apple as well. For personal use. Aswell as membership to costco i believe if you are employed by the local council etc.
I just thought it might be a nice idea to find out what benefits we are eligible for and maybe get them posted on this thread of other discounts that we could be applicable for that no one really knows about for personal use.
Im sure theres more than just that for us??

Adobe offer Work at Home rights in some of their licenses, so you might not even need the discount - worth checking

Feel their 80% is a bit off :P Unless that's 80% of "RRRRRRRRRRRRRP" style. £300 for a single copy?
But yeah, would be cool to get lots of places on here

I believe I get a discount at some Subways and a trendy wine bar. Many others but those are the two most important ones

what discount can you get from apple?
19th May 2011, 12:39 PM #11
No if you are part of a government funded school NOT PRIVATE you can be eligible the ac.uk is more for the university discount which is higher. Phone up and ask to double check I believe they usually ask for a scan of your photo id etc if its not a university discount.

Depending on the cashier, 10% off at Rymans. Hey, I told him I'm not a student but work in a school but he still gave it to me after a long pause.

I got a 12% discount last time I bought a Mac. I went in, waved my ID at them and got the discount. Applecare is also heavily discounted.
