So Jodie posted here about the fabulous back to school promotion that Apple is having: buy a computer and get a $100 gift card for the app store. Fabulous. A lesser known deal is that if you buy an HP printer from the apple store with your computer you can get $100 back. These promotions can be combined.
The HP printer and the MAC computer must be on the same receipt: then you are golden. Get this: HP printers start at $100, so you are essentially getting a new printer FOR FREE, or just for the cost of the tax. It is worth the trouble to send in the rebate form, receipt and codes.
I just gave in and replaced my computer. As a university student I got $100 off my new macbook pro, got the free $100 gift card to the app store, plus bought an HP printer for essentially $20 ($120, then take off the $100 rebate). I decided to pay the extra $20 to get the wireless printing feature: with it I can print directly from my iPad.
Stack your deals people! Be sure to check out the rebate form for qualifying printers.
