Apple promotes ‘Tax Holiday 2012′
Every dollars counts, right? Apple is encouraging customers to “Get a tax break on your next Mac or iPad,” a promotion that highlights ongoing sales tax holidays in nine US states. Yup, not paying sales tax could result in serious savings, especially if you’re combining this with Apple’s educational discount.
Just shop the Apple Online Store or your favorite Apple Retail Store and choose a qualifying product during your state’s no-tax period.
Yes, you can get the discount whether you shop at a brick and mortar Apple Store or online — brilliant. Here’s a listing of the participating states (See also: Tax Holiday 2012):
That said, when you make your purchase online, it will appear as though you will be charged sales tax. However, confirmation that sales tax wasn’t applied will come via your order’s email confirmation.
Again, not to belabor the point, but if you live in a participating state, combining this sales tax holiday with Apple’s Buy a Mac for college back to school promotion, you get serious savings — $50 or more off your Mac purchase plus a $100 iTunes Gift Card.
Lots of reasons to buy…
