Q: Why doesn't some of the stores in Beijing show that they have discounts for students?

Just went to the apple store and found out they had a discount for students. However, two employees told me two different things. One said if your a university student in China you can get a discount. The other said it doesn't matter where your going to school as long as your a university student. Also, at the movie theaters they have discounts but there are no signs. Sometimes two employees will have different opinions on who can get the discount whether it be all university students or just university students studying at any university in China. Why is that?

Because having rules and regulations written down in detail for all to see goes against their ability to "adjust" it to best serve their needs.

Plus why do you care? I thought you were a teacher, not a student.

The Chinese market is set up so that you can barter over price that’s why you keep getting different answers so just pick the employee who gives you the better price and if the other one complains act offended it’s the Chinese’s way

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
