Try giving the small business division of the Apple Store a bell, assuming this is for business:

I seriously doubt it considering the small retail mark up.  A bulk buy with Apple would be in the 100's if not 1000's

Probably have a better chance getting a discount on the plan you're looking at putting them on or a discount from the telco if you buy from them.

In all seriousness for such a small order (and with the small margins on Apple products) you'll probably get a far bigger "discount" by buying them retail and using a credit card with APD or cashback than what you will get from a store.

5 is not really a bulk buy. If it was 100, then I suspect a retailer may give you a bit of a discount.

You maybe able to negotiate 5-10% discount but not much more if any.

Certainly won't get 10%, retail margin is a lot less than that.
Maybe 2-3%, probably nothing.

Better off trying to get a deal on subsidies from a Telco (need to sign up to plans though)

jimbob79: Hi all.

The problem with iphones , everyone wants one. 

The kids at my childs intermediate school all want apple products, not android or other (my son has use of a moto-g...not cool).

And, when you can sell every phone you make at the rrp you can control the supply chain all the way. 

I'm just looking to get an ipod touch for my daughters xmas --- basically , all retailers sell the one we want for $430. One dodgier store was $10 off, but why go to the hassle of saving $10 for a potential headache down the track.

I seem to recall the margin on an iPhone 5 being about $20 when it came out. I can't imagine much has changed, with the dollar getting weaker probably makes it worse.

You are kidding right? For a tiny discount you would need to be buying in the 1000s if not 10s of thousands

Apple knows just about everyone wants these devices

Yep, I tried to get a "bulk" deal for 50 iPhones for work and was told under no uncertain terms that is was by no means a bulk deal.

However Vodafone did do a deal on the rebate when we signed up for 24 month contracts which saw us pay next to nothing for the phones.

I don't know about NZ. But I've gotten significant discount of $50 per phone when I bought 5 last year in Harvey Norman Aussie.
