i have a question on student discounts.... im a junior in highschool, i have my student id as i walk into the apple store and i go to buy an isight for my imac.. and i asked the guy if i was able to get the student discount and he was like yea.. so i gave him my license and student id and he was like a college id? and i didnt want to lie so i corrected him by saying highschool... and the guy was like cant give you the discount... only college or teachers.. and i was like on the site it has the discounts for highschool as well.. and he was like yea, its only for teachers though...

and so now, my question is. is that true? are only teachers and college students able to get student discounts? or can students in highschool get the discount w/ their student id card too? :confused:

Short answer, no. As a high school student you do not get the discount. (remember, the discount is a privilege -- not a right.)

Long answer, just buy it online and fudge the college ID... err... I mean, no.
