It seems like these days just about everyone is buying the latest iPhone, iPod, iPod Touch or iMac, judging by the latest earnings report just released by Apple. If you weren't prescient enough to buy Apple stock earlier this year in the high 70's, you can still get some financial benefit without risking any money. Apple offers an online education discount for students.
Simply visit http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/education_routing, find the college that your child attends, and you'll get discounts on almost all Apple products. Any order over $50 also qualifies for free shipping.
