Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

Hello all... I am back in CH until Sat. morning and was hoping to pick up a refurbished Macbook Pro 13", i5, 4GBRAM and 500GB HD (lowest spec). Unfortunately, I cannot get it shipped in time, so was wondering if there are any stores selling more cheaply than the Apple store. I am in Payerne, so could drive to Zurich/Geneva/Lausanne without to much effort.

Thanks for any tips... it is cheaper than buying it in Spain and I am not back in the US for a while.

AFAIK, you can't buy cheaper than apple retail, they'll be the same price as in the online store.

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

You might be right, but I was online with apple.ch just now and they mentioned there might be special offers given in the retail store so will call and ask. Made me wonder if there are similar special offers or price reductions anywhere else.

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

That is what I would love to find... Macbook Pro is probably ready for a new model. Would love to find a deal, as they don't exist too often in the Mac world!

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

digitec.ch is doing it for CHF 1049, which I recall is cheaper than Apple (CHF 1299 IIRC).

They can deliver it overnight, or they have a store in Lausanne.

PS if you have a tame friendly student in the family, they can buy Macs at a decent discount...

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

Often MediaMarkt dumps their end of line Apple stock for significant discounts. If you find yourself heading to Dietikon for the 10% off at Dataquest then it could be worth a trip to the MediaMarkt there to have a look.

Check out the deals section on mediamarkt.ch, interdiscount.ch, fust.ch etc. - they frequently have those on sale.

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

data quest list their reconditioned/floorstock/end of line items here:

http://www.dataquest.ch/occasionen/

You can use the drop down menu to find the product you are looking for, and you'll probably get a range of items with various specifications and 'life history'...

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

How does this work? I just saw the flyer and see the Cumulus Points offer, but do I get cash back when I buy the Mac or do I get points that I can use later? I am not living in CH anymore, so might not use the points soon. But at 975, it is cheaper than the Digitec offer and I can find a M-Electronics close to Payerne.

Thanks,

fduvall

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

Apple generally has a standard 'education' discount (for students & teachers). Many apple resellers will match this deal.

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

Thanks, all. Will likely go to Mediamarkt today.

Though, if someone can still explain to me how the Migros Cumulus points work, that might still be an option if one gets the discount when buying the Mac. 975 CHF is still a bit less than 1049 (Mediamarkt).

thnx!

If you don't live in Switzerland, the whole Cumulus points stuff is useless to you.
(It's use is doubtful even if you live in Switzerland)

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

A few weeks ago, I got a new (not refurbished) MBP at Fust, and instead of a discount, they gave me a CHF 150.- coupon good on almost anything Fust sells. The coupon came by email the following day. I printed it out, went back and bought an external drive for my Time Machine backups.

Re: Cheapest store (retail) in CH to buy a new Macbook Pro

OK - I have a Cumulus card and I have a CH mailing address. But I don't live here now. So does that mean that the points get me a cash voucher that I use sometime in the future?

If so, I will just go to Mediamarkt or Digitec. I seem to remember 500pts=5CHF, but wasn't sure if they were doing something differently now or with this Mac promotion.

thnx
