Apple Giving Employees 25% Discount on Vision Pro

Apple employees will be able to purchase the Vision Pro at a 25 percent discount, which drops the price of the device $3,500 to approximately $2624, not including tax.

Apple Vision Pro Dual Loop Band Purple Feature
Employees were told about the discount in a memo that was sent out today, according to Bloomberg. In the past, Apple has offered 50 percent discounts on new products like the HomePod and the Apple Watch, but the Vision Pro is more expensive.

Every three years, employees are provided with a $500 credit toward a Mac, and that credit will also be able to be used for the Vision Pro, plus Apple is planning to reimburse employees that purchase the headset for the cost of any prescription lenses that are required.

Pre-orders for the Vision Pro begin tomorrow at 5:00 a.m. Pacific Time, with a launch to follow on Friday, February 2.

They should offer the discount to registered developers as well if they want to encourage more developers to buy and build apps for the platform. If anything, Apple probably needs developer support for the Vision Pro now more than ever.

You know if employees could get essentially $900 off a Vision Pro, makes you wonder why the damn headset doesn't even cost that price for normal customers. $3500 is absurd, $2500 is an easier pill to swallow.
for profit?

Apple has around 160,000 employees, so if half of them buy a Vision Pro, that’ll cover the initial shipment of 80,000 units. ;)

Not exactly sure what that would mean for Apple’s bottom line. ?

No, you’re probably right. I figured that too. Maybe they don’t have data regarding the employee discounts of the first iPhone and/or iPad.

I did a Google search and supposedly per calendar year, employees get 25% off one Apple product. I don’t know if the product is selected by Apple or if the employee can just use it on the iPhone or Mac if they choose. Sounds like Apple chooses, based on today’s story, though.
Apple employees get 1 25% off discount for each hero product.
1 Mac, 1 watch, 1 iphone, etc. For AirPods, there is a 25% discount on any AirPod set and 1 25% on AirPods Max, separately. Not to mention Apple care plus policies, free iCloud storage, Apple Services (tv+, arcade, and music)

This article is also incorrect. Apple employees are given their 1 time $500 discount every TWO years, not 3.

Apple employees also have discounts on the refurbished site, quarterly promotion discounts, and a holiday “wish list” with sales on various products on Apple.com.

Apple is extremely generous with employees and discounts.
