Academic Discount

by MediaTechGuru / July 25, 2005 5:56 AM PDT

Can anyone recommend companies B&M and Internet that have academic or student discounts on digital cameras and supplies? Looking to save some $$$ in the near future.

Is usually well known at your student association or such office. Any deals are there for you to find out about.

One downturn to these deals is the ongoing abuse. I can't tell you how many academic office versions I've seen sold to non-academicians.

Bob, Never knew this existed until a few years ago. When I went to school, we had to pay full retail for every thing. No student loans either. That's when we were without any kind of aid. We just had to earn enough money to purchase anything needed for school without receiving State or Fereral aid: Pens, paper. paints etc. for a commercial arts school.

During the late 50's a good 35mm camera from Japan retailed for around $125.
Ten years ago I purchased a 35mm Nikon with a Nikon lens for about $800.
Two years ago I purchased a Canon S400 for about $400.
Now I am looking at an SD500 at a cost about $450 or so.
Bob, here is what I want to do.
Sign up for a college graphic course and ask the State to give me a camera for my courses FREE! What could be better?
Bob, in Taxachusetts, going to the University of MA, at over 60 years of age, almost anyone could qualify to have an education free.
Now, after signing up, I just have to figure out how to receive a free state-of-the-art camera and a Mac G-5 Server, plus all the Adobe software free, or at a very
low cost. I would qualify. Others would not

Bob, you are so right-on with your post. Happens all the time sold to non-academicians.
