I'm going to take the plunge in buying a new MacBook soon, and am planning on taking advantage of the printer rebate offered by Apple. I know an easy solution would be to buy it online together, but I plan on waiting until a 10% off sale at a major retailer to price match at the Apple Store. So I'm wondering whether they sell the printers too, or if it's an online only thing. If it makes a difference, I'll probably be going after the cheapest one, the "HP Photosmart Wireless e-All-in-One Printer" that is listed for $129.95. Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I don't really no where it should go. Thanks for the help!

From what I've read, yes. After all, they would still be getting more money by having customers buy directly compared to through a reseller.

Yeah they price match - sometimes they will do better than price match! They seem to have a list of known sale prices happening at other stores (e.g. Big W, JB HiFi etc), so if you say "so-and-so has x for $y" they'll check their list for so-and-so, or find a price which is lower than so-and-so and give it to you for that!

The Apple retail stores do sell the cheapest printer. I picked one up last week when they offered me the rebate you referred to with the purchase of my new Macbook Air.

Awesome, thanks markg! Hopefully they have stock when I get my MBP :) All I need to do now is decide whether I want an i7 13" or the lower 15". That, and for a 10% off sale somewhere!

Never heard of them price matching. Strange.

They don't advertise it, but they do.
