7% Cashback at Apple & Apple Education Stores (Was 1.5%) @ Cashrewards (6% on 8/5)

1900

Greetings everyone, sent over a message to TA to ask what the Apple promo is (as advised here and he told me 7% from 10am. Ends midnight tonight, then drops to 6% for tomorrow. After that, it goes back down to 1.5%, so be quick!

Seems like an awesome increase from CR for the Apple & Apple Education Stores :)

Haven't seen an increase like this in quite a while, and an awesome addition with the inclusion of the education store for further discounts.

    Hi all. Apologies for this, but we've just been advised to update our terms as there's an important exclusion that was missed re AppleCare. It applies only when AppleCare is purchased individually, so hopefully hasn't affected anyone for this promo. I've asked the OP to update the post as well. Thank you for your understanding :)

    • HI Mate, is apple watches included ?

      • Yup… only exclusions are above :)

    • +1

      Thanks for the clarification TA

  • +5

    Not bad.. Stacking with Educational store would be a decent discount..

    • Don't forget that cashback is only applied to the cost of the goods before GST.

  • Hmmm iPhone 11 Pros aren't on special in the education store

    • Neither is the non pro :/

  • +3

    Exclude macbook air. But the new macbook pro is included?

    • +6

      Yep, confirmation from Apple:

      The new 13-inch MacBook Pro is available to order and available for commission.

      The exclusions in the post are correct as of commencement of this promo. Thanks!

  • Does this work on refurbished items?

    Edit: yes it does from reading the description on CR website.

  • +1

    New MacBook Air

    😥

    Was considering the new Macbook Pro until i saw that the base models still had the 8th gen chip

    • +1

      No idea, how the new model has an 8th gen processor. That's apple for you

      • +1

        Dave Lee’s explanation on the matter is very well done. Here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-hSOuK7qBgM

        • +1

          I watched that too. People get too caught up with the labelling instead of looking at the actual performance or even if they’d use extra specs.

    • +1

      taking away your connection slots and replacing your function keys with a touchbar. That's apple for you.

      • +1

        Hey, they brought back the physical ESC (escape) key… (Saves having to do Command-. or remapping Caps Lock). We should all be very pleased :-)

    • +1

      However the base model now has 256 gb storage instead of 128 and a better keyboard, possibly a few more things.

  • Can the cashback work in store with l8nked card as well?

    • +1

      as far as I can see the answer would be no.
      Does not seem apple is listed on the in-store list.
      https://www.cashrewards.com.au/in-store/offers

    • +1

      No. Online only.

    • +2

      Unfortunately not. This is strictly an online offer. Linked cards can only be used at these stores.

  • No way to use CR with interest free offers, as you have to call! oh well.

  • iPhone SE 2 showing up as $829 for the 128GB model, that isn't a discount from normal is it?

  • +2

    Don't forget to read the fine print (and in Bold in the deal) - the newer products are excluded (including the iPhone SE)

    • +2

      Sooooo everything you'd want to buy?

      • +1

        IMPORTANT - The following products are ineligible for Cashback until further notice: New iPhone SE, New MacBook Air, Mac Pro, Pro Display XDR, Bose, Gift Cards, Gift Wrap, iTunes, Shipping, Apple Developer Programs. (Exclusions updated 27/04/20).

        • until further notice

          Soooo… there could be a chance they could be available with 6% tomorrow? TA please blink twice and throw a hand signal if this is the case 😄😋

  • good for those who want a personal config model

  • +5

    $200 discount on new Macbook Pro. Thanks OP :)

      I think the New Macbook Pro is excluded

      • +1

        Mac Pro is excluded; Macbook pro is not mentioned.

      • +4

        The new 13-inch MacBook Pro is included. Please see my comment here.

        • Thanks TA for confirming, glad that at least 1 new product is included.

      • It's not in those exclusions though…

    • How did you come up with $200 op. Which variant you were after please

      • If he got the 2020 Pro with the 10th gen chip and 512gb storage on the education store he'd get around $200 cashback?

  • +2

    No Macbook Air…boo

  • Would AppleCare be included?

    • +1

      If you buy apple care with a product it would be included.
      if you buy just apple care on its own and check out via the apple store (after going through CR) then it would also be included.

      • +1

        Please see my comment here.

    • Please see my comment here.

  • Good deal for the iPADs

  • Anyone know if the student edge education store is eligible?

  • +2

    Thanks just purchased the 16" Macbook Pro

    • How much after Cashback?

      • +1

        Ends up being $3487 as I opted for the 8GB 5500M, this includes the student discount.

        • We did same, just got email asking for our student ID
          Was hoping to see it sooner, hopefully this does not delay too much.
          Lucky we have a student in the house and bought it in their name

          • @jimbobaus: did they ask immediately?

          • @jimbobaus: Do they require minimum age for student?

            • @codinghelloworld: You can be student, teacher or education staff
              They asked for ID or proof of employment.
              we are ok as we bought under students name.

              Its back to "we are processing your order now" so they acted pretty quickly once we sent the ID

          • @jimbobaus: Last time I bought iPad they won’t ask anything.

            • @georgev: yeah this is first time its hapopened to me also.
              Friend also got checked about 1.5 hours after he could not verify so not sure whats going to happen

              • @jimbobaus: How your friend? Does his order go through or cancelled if he cannot give student ID?

          • @jimbobaus: so weird i never get asked for student ID

    • Bought the same config. Base 16” with maxed out GPU. Didn’t get asked for student ID. I had one if needed though.

      Can’t wait!

  • +2

    should i buy an ipad pro…. so tempting
    edu discount (uni staff) + 7% back = $1,161 for the 11-inch 128GB WIFI version

    • That's very good price. Recently has the deal on Ebay Wireless 1, price is around 1129 + 30 (shipping), however lots of people does not get their shipping yet.

    • Are you getting the education discount through unidays?

      • +3

        Just fyi, you will not get cashback if going via unidays.

      • -1

        Don't go via Unidays. You don't get any benefits and it actually ends up being 1 cent more expensive (i know, right?). Go straight to apple education here. https://www.apple.com/au-hed/shop/browse/home/education_rout...

        • +6

          If you click the link above ^^^ directly, you'll lose Cashrewards tracking and attribution.

          Please click 'Shop Now' from here instead and you'll be directed to the Education store with CR attribution.

          • @tightarse: Hi TA,

            Will CR track when clicking Shop Now and navigating to the education store in the footer menu of Apples website?

            When I did it last night, the "Shop Now" link didn't take me directly to the education store. Instead it took me to the main Apple page. From there I had to navigate to the education store using the footer menu.

            Thanks.

            • @zobragin: Hi. It's in the OP and the very last point in the terms :)

              Information on Education pricing on Mac computers and selected accessories (for members that are eligible based on Apple's T&Cs): After clicking 'Shop Now', navigate via the Education link in Apple's footer menu before adding items to cart.

              • +1

                @tightarse: Thanks TA… just wanted peace of mind advice coming from a CR rep:)

                Cheers.

                • @zobragin: No worries, but please read here.

                  • @tightarse: Yes I was very careful not to have any other browsers open, click the back button or have it open a new window.
                    If any of the above happen, I restart my computer and do everything through CR from the beginning LOL.

                    I'm always bit edgy when using CR especially with big purchases.

              • @tightarse: Is there a difference using the Apple or the Apple Education link on CR?

                • @csia:

                  Is there a difference using the Apple or the Apple Education link on CR?

                  There is as far as the landing page goes, and saves you the trouble of clicking extra steps to get where you need to be. If your intention is to buy from the Education Store, then please use the direct Education Store link on Cashrewards. Cutting out extra steps in your shopping journey will certainly help avoid issues with tracking.

                  • +1

                    @tightarse: That's swell! Thanks TA

                    • @csia: It's a pleasure. Feel free to ask away any time. Have an great day :)

                      • @tightarse: what if i navigate away from the education link to buy a Iphone.Although I initially clicked the Education Store link on Cashrewards and then selected Iphone from the header

    • I just saved $127 for the 256GB 11" + Pencil + Apple Care+, so pretty happy with this deal. :)

  • Well, I guess the New iPhone SE is too overpriced (IMHO) still, then.

  • +1

    Hey TA, will this work if I pay using a gift card? I don't see any mention of that in the T&Cs?

  • Does this work if going through unidays?

    • Definitely not. Sorry!

  • Hey TA, when will Ebay have a site cashback?

  • I presume no issues on Airpods Pro?

  • +1

    Hey.. I'm looking to buy an Ipad pro. Can anyone help me understand if I can access educational discount easily? I am not a student though

    • I think you just answered your own question

    • +1

      They randomly select orders from the education store for verification.
      We literally just got an email asking for the ID to verify our purchase
      Order is "pending verification" on apple atm
      First time its every happened in years

  • damn.. was after the SE2…. ahhh I'll sit back until a discount comes up.. I never want to pay retail for Apple! even if its only a small discount..
    7% is pretty good though!

  • remember boys and girls. Apple rarely checks Education discount qualifications…..

    • Oh, just know that. I make an example order on Edu store and it does not require me to input education info..

    • +1

      We literally just got an email asking for the ID to verify our purchase
      Order is "pending verification" on apple atm

      First time in many years its happened.

  • Has anyone purchased an Apple product today and received the confirmation tracking email from Cash Rewards? I purchased something an hour ago and no confirmation yet :(

    • Notification
      1 to 7 Days
      Estimated Approval
      Up to 70 Days

      • +1

        I completely missed that! Thanks for addressing my silly question! :)

    • +2

      Please see the term in the post:

      Cashback for Apple can take up to 7 days to appear in your account.

      Apple will definitely not track before at least 2 days from order time. You'll need to be patient with this merchant :)

      • +1

        thanks for the info 🙏

  • +1

    is this cashback also works for pickup orders? Say order online today for pickup tomorrow?
    Thanks.

    • Good question!

    • I actually think that if it is not explicitly excluded, it should be okay.
      Please correct me if there is any master T&C that excludes this. Thanks.

    • Cashback works on pickup orders provided the purchase is paid IN FULL online after clicking 'Shop Now' from Cashrewards.
