Når salget af Apple Watch starter om nogle dage, kan de ansatte hos Apple glæde sig over, at de vil få tilbudt Apple Watch med 50% rabat. Undtaget er det dyre Apple Watch Edition i guld, hvor der gives $550 i rabat, hvilket er den samme rabat, der gives på det dyreste af de almindelige ure.

Rabatten gives foreløbig kun til ansatte i de lande, hvor apple Watch først kommer til salg. Senere i tatk med udrulningen udvides der til nye lande.

En ansættelse hos Apple er altså vejen frem, hvis du vil have et ur med rabat. Ifølge Apples betingelser, kan hver ansat købe ét ur til personligt brug, så vi skal nok ikke regne med at kunne få billige ure gennem bekendte ansat hos Apple. Men mon ikke flere alligevel vil benytte lejligheden til nogle hurtige penge ved at sælge deres ure brugt?

Her er hvad topchef, Tim Cook, skriver til de ansatte:

Team,

The day we’ve all been waiting for is almost here: Apple Watch is ready to ship.

Our retail stores are training for a whole new way to engage customers and help them experience Apple’s most personal product yet. On Friday, in over four hundred stores across four continents, we’ll open our doors to people who want to try on Apple Watch for the first time and start deciding which one is right for them.

Tens of millions of people have seen our keynotes and demonstration videos about the watch, and there’s much more to come. Some of the most innovative developers in the world are working on new experiences designed specifically for Apple Watch. More than one thousand apps were submitted in just four days last week when the App Store started accepting them, and the rate of submissions has only been climbing since then.

I know that many of you have been looking forward to choosing an Apple Watch for yourselves, and we want to make it easy for you. Starting Friday in countries where the watch is available for pre-order, a special Employee Purchase Plan will offer a 50% discount on any Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport for your personal use.

As we introduce the watch in more countries, the special pricing for employees will be offered in those countries as well. Discounts will begin at pre-order and last for 90 days after availability. AppleWeb has more details, so I invite you to check it out.

Our products enrich people’s lives like no others, and we think Apple Watch is going to delight our customers in ways people can’t yet imagine. We want you to share in that experience right alongside them.

Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard for years to help this product reach our customers. And thanks in advance to the thousands of retail employees around the world who will start placing it on people’s wrists starting Friday.

Tim
