Apple Accepted my U of M credit card as proof to give me the educational discount!.

Went in to buy a 2017 MacBook Pro w/ Touchbar at Apple and the employee was about to ring me up at full price. When I went to pay on my University of Miami credit card he saw it was for a school and took off $100 ($1699 for base model) on the computer and $20 off of the AppleCare+ ($249), I haven’t been a student in 10 years so if you have a college themed card it should be enough to give you the education discount with no trouble even if your not currently enrolled there.
