Apple just launched its 2016 Back to School Deal.
Apple will include a free pair of Beats Solo2 wireless headphones with the purchase of an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, MacBook Air.
Apple will include a free pair of Beats Powerbeats2 wireless headphones with the purchase of an iPad Pro, iPhone 6s or an iPhone 6.
This Back to School promotion is very similar to last year.
Along with the Beats headphones purchasers get the standard Apple student education discount. The discount is available all year long, but the discount and the free headphones expires September 5th and starts today. For many teachers and students this is the best time to purchase an Apple device.
Remember: Teachers always get educational pricing on Apple devices. You must ask for it, and in some cases show evidence of employment: ID, certificate, check stub, etc. and unique to each store.
Notes of interest: I love Apple’s Back to School deals. I do, however, recommend shopping around everywhere for the best deals. There are some amazing offers out there to help students and teachers save money. Also… all of the headphones are wireless. Interesting. Lots of rumors floating around about a new iPhone with no headphone port. And finally… I am waiting for a new MacBook Pro, so you may want to wait too. I am hoping one is unveiled at the June 13th event. We shall see.
