In January 2012, we reported that Apple would commence a discount program for employees in June. Now the program has officially started.
A report by MacNN said that now Apple employees can take part in a new Employee Purchase Plan which started on Wednesday, 20 June 2012. The discount offers employees $500 off on select Mac computers and $250 off on iPads. This discount scheme does not include the low-price Mac mini or the Retina MacBook Pro. The discount also is separate from the employee’s current 25 percent discount.
Employees who have passed the 90-day probationary period can take advantage of the offer. They can use their discount once every three years. Besides this extra discount, Apple also gave retail employees a pay raise that could be as high as 25 percent, depending on the performance of store and employee.
