Always the best way to buy. There was a short time period where they required credentials, but now it's fair game for all.
If they don't ask for credentials, that is on Apple. However, if people take advantage of this and ruin it for people who are actually in school, that is really sad. Hopefully that doesn't happen.

Do not buy expensive Apple products from Amazon if you have any doubt you may return them. Their unofficial policy is up to 60 days for a refund. I returned an Apple Watch Ultra five weeks ago and still have not gotten a refund.

Middle school drama.
Nope, I just have integrity. I'm sorry that you all do not. Anyway, you have a great day!

I still find it odd seeing sales on Apple products. It used to always be fixed pricing.

I guess that’s just part of the transition from “it just works” to “profits > products”
