If you are an active military member or a veteran, the Apple Store has a new place for you to shop. Yesterday, the online Store added a new Veterans & Military store that gives members discounts on Apple products.
Once registered, a military member can purchase iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches and other Apple products at various levels of discount. Most of these discounts are 10% off regular prices. For example, the iPhone XS is $899 for military members, which is $999 for civilians. The iPhone XR is down to $674 from its normal price of $749 for military members.
In order to get the discounted pricing, you have to prove your military or veteran status. Apple has provided a form for you to complete with your supporting documentation of your military status. Dependents of military members are also eligible for the discount program.
The addition of the Veterans & Military store at the Apple Store adds to other discount programs the Cupertino tech giant offers. Apple has offered student and educational discounts for many years through a specialized storefront. The discount provided to the military is slightly more than those of education.
It is great to see Apple providing this discount to military members and veterans as a thank you for the service, past and present.
