I want to clear up the student rebate question. I ordered my granddaughter a MacAir a few days ago. My granddaughter is in 5th grade; so elementary school.. BEFORE I placed the order, I went to the Best Buy link for student deals: Here's the link: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/misc/back-to-school/pcmcat334100050000.c?id=pcmcat334100050000. Choose which coupon that would relate to your purchase. I chose the $125 MacBook one. There were only about 4 questions to answer and it did NOT ask for a student ID, which is good because my granddaughter's school does not use them. It gave me a coupon code to use when I got to the payment screen. It IMMEDIATELY gave me the $125 discount on my purchase; no waiting for a rebate. I hope this information helps clear up some of the questions regarding the student rebate/discount.
