Apple prices in Australia
It does not matter if you buy 1 or 5 price is the same. Dealer margins are 5% so donot expect any deals unless the retailer is having a sale and the discount price is at cost. That is the way it is and has been for many many years. My background is 25 years as a specialist Apple reseller in Qld. I currently am employed by a major electrical retailer. You can try negotiating a better price for cash maybe $10 max but not much more and that would be high. You are better off looking for a deal on accessories. The prices Apple advertise are already so called "street prices" The bottom line is iPads are a fast selling item and nobody needs to discount. iPods for example in most retailers are sold at cost or below cost... Why they are pull items. Ie get you into the stores..... Forget Optus deal that is a buried promotion ie you pay in the contract....
