Benefit Update

ApplePreferred pricing now available on HomePod, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard

Welcome HomePod. HomePod is a powerful speaker that sounds amazing and adapts to wherever it’s playing. It’s the ultimate music authority, bringing together Apple Music and Siri to learn your taste in music. It’s also an intelligent home assistant, capable of handling everyday tasks — and controlling your smart home. HomePod takes the listening experience to a whole new level. And that’s just the beginning.
Apple Pencil. The versatile Apple Pencil is the best tool to reach for when you need pixel‑perfect precision. Use it to jot down notes, draft a schematic, or paint a watercolor. Or sign a lease or mark up an email. Whatever you need to do, Apple Pencil is easy to use but impossible to put down.
Smart Keyboard. The Smart Keyboard — available for both the 10.5‑inch and 12.9‑inch iPad Pro — provides a full-size keyboard to get your thoughts down and a durable cover for everyday protection. It also features innovative technologies that free you from switches, plugs, and pairing.

Update on Acquiring Apple Discount Benefit: Apple has modified protocols for acquiring product discounts when purchasing products through ASMP Benefit Program. Going forward, ASMP members can ONLY acquire product discounts by using the secure link on the Apple Benefit page.

11.20.17 NOTICE –
Late last week we heard from members that websites hosted at were down and unresponsive. After investigating, general counsel Thomas Maddrey, with assistance from an ASMP national board member (a customer), determined that ASMP should no longer link to or support as their response to this situation has been lackluster at best. Further, it appears that this business has been bought and sold possibly two or more times, and these changes have resulted in poor service and downtime. From this point forward, ASMP will no longer list as a recommended benefit partner. Thank you.
