Apple Store Promotion Code

So I was looking for a new battery for my Apple Macbook laptop and popped on over to the online Apple Store, picked up the battery, filled in my credit card details and then I was presented with this tempting textbox.

Apple Store Promotion Code

Hmm, could I save a few quid if I had a promotion code? I went searching for one as I’ve had luck elsewhere saving a bit of money online. Clicking on the first link appeared to be a forum thread. It quickly became obvious that lots of people were in the same boat, and judging by the 51 pages of posts by “macrumors newbie” status users they’re a lot more desperate than I am.

Oh well. The battery was €139, including €24 VAT which isn’t too bad. Should arrive in a few days time. I’m using Coconut Battery again to monitor battery usage, but this time I’ll try the battery calibration techniques on the new battery first.

PromoCode Needed!
I got some money for Xmas and i want to buy a macbook at the apple.com store.

Can somebody please send me a promocode ?? Fast?

Looks like someone was offering promotion codes to the first 2 to PM him.

Apple is folding it’s biz agent program at the end of 2007. As a going away present, I’m putting my last two codes out there for you, dear reader.

The fine print:

* They expire 12/28 (yeah, that’s tomorrow)
* They are NOT good in the ed store
* They are NOT good if your company already as a deal with Apple
* They ARE good for refurbs

Please don’t ask for it if you can’t use it. If you CAN make use of it, PM me and I’ll send it your way!

  1. 139 for a fecking battery? and I thought i was being ripped off with the £40 battery for my iBook. yea thats pounds, but its still half price. and it looks like its the genuine article. if it was that expensive i woulda gone with a knock off from HK how ever bad they are. the batteries aren’t worth anything but they can get away with ripping people off. batteries for the Iridium 9505A phone cost £100 each but nobody else makes em. its not really any different from any other lithium ion battery for a phone


  2. Next time, you should check out the very useful site, http://www.retailmenot.com – it’s by the same folks who made bugmenot.com, and it’s got loads of coupon codes on it submitted by the community.

    I’ve probably saved over 200 bucks just from that site alone.


  3. i got a few promotional codes from apple in their newsletter emails. they were usually for 36euros (including vat) and could be used on items over a certain amount (in the email i have handy its for 366e (vat incl.))

    the code was given in their newsletter and could be copy/pasted into that promo code box at ordering stage and discount is factored in immediately. the email i have here is all in finnish but the faq it links to is here (in english): http://email.euro.apple.com/store/evoucher/faq/fi/?cid=AOS-EDM-A30000076424


  4. Dan – well, as it’s a business expense it helps that I’m registered for VAT (knock off the €24), and it’s tax deductible which takes the sting out of the purchase.
    Batteries for my Canon 20D cost more than €60 but I bought 2 no-brand batteries for about £9 when I bought the camera. The Canon battery lasts a lot longer but the other two are handy as backups.

    Umbrae – I’ll check that out next time. Pity it didn’t show up when I searched!

    Darren – that’s the pattern I noticed on that forum. You had to spend quite a large amount (more than the cost of a battery anyway) to get any discount.


  5. I’ve been in this same (or similar) boat while shopping for stuff online … did searches for promocodes, coupons .. anything that could same me my precious money. Sadly, I never found anything worth my time and I spent more than I wanted on some hardware.

    Ah, such is the way of merchandising, eh?


  6. I am a firm believer in doing a search for product name or store name plus coupon code before I buy anything online. Just the other day I saved my wife nearly a $140 on a purchase of party supplies. She had the stores newsletter coupon for $15 off. Needless to say she was pretty darn happy with me.
