Apple Town Hall Meeting Nets Employees $500 Off Macs and $250 off iPads


The same day Apple announced its historic $46 billion dollar quarter, Tim Cook reportedly fired off an email to employees to announce an Apple Town Hall meeting for the next day. As for those ‘exciting new things’ Cook wanted to talk about? Well, we now know according to 9to5Mac:

Cook announced that Apple employees will soon be given $500 discounts on purchases of new Macs and $250 discounts on purchases of a new iPad.

It is reported the discount will start this summer, with the deal only available to those employed at Apple for at least the past 90 days. The deal will only be available to employees once every three years. Considering Apple has almost $100 billion dollars in cash, you can bet their more than 60,000+ employees will be happy to utilize this offer.

If you’re an Apple employee, keep us updated on how this offer works out for you.

  • Who needs a MacBook Pro when you can buy a $199 Dell netbook? #amiright

  • No, #youarewrong

    lol, sorry Gary, had to say it. Now if the Apple Store comes to Halifax, I have even more reason to apply. 

  • Christopher Jones

    That would only apply if the $199 Dell Netbook can be compared to a MacBook Pro. In all factuality, it doesn’t, so your comment does not even deserve to be mentioned in this post.

    Who needs an iPhone when you can get an Nokia for half the price.
