I called back and pressed 7 for questions related to windows 7. I asked the guy if they offered student discounts for full retail versions and he said yes. I ordered my windows 7 pro full retail version and am waiting for it to arrive now. I asked if it appplied to ultimate as some people said here that they got that deal but he said no, no biggie to me though. Its amazing though that one person said they offer no discounts at all when they have a student discount on the store site for upgrade media that is currently active.
That happened to me, too. The first representative said that 29.99 deal is only effective for the first 2 days after Windows 7 was released, hence no discounts or whatsoever.
Thank you for the info, otherwise I would have given up.
The second representative told me that either Home Premium or Professional is 29.99, and Ultimate is 99.99, so I ordered a Professional.
Hope this helps.
