This link: Welcome to the Apple Store - Apple Store (U.S.) will take you to the employee discount Apple website. If you go to the Apple Store, take your ID and let the guy know you're supposed to get an 8% discount on any Mac product and you also get a discount with third party stuff there, I just don't remember the percentage, maybe 6%.

Got a kid in school? I think the student discount is 10%? Link to "Education Store" below.

Also MacMall.com frequently has good prices (link below).

I second Mac Mall. When talking to them directly on the phone they gave me a better price when I gave them the Mac Store prices.

Here's one more site that compares prices and is updated daily. If you look closely you can find free shipping, no state tax and good software bundle deals.

The Mac Store will give us a 8% discount and I like them much better than Mac Mall. I have had bad luck with them in the past.
