Bts promo edu hero 201605

Apple today kicked off its annual Back to School offer in Canada and the US, throwing in a pair of Beats Solo2 Wireless Headphones ($329.95 value) for those who buy an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or Mac Pro. The Mac mini doesn’t appear as an “eligible” Mac, as usual.

Those opting for an iPhone 6/6s, 6/6s Plus or iPad Pro, will get a pair of Powerbeats2 Wireless Headphones – more precisely, they will get an instant credit in the amount of $219.95. To upgrade to the Beats Solo2 Wireless Headphones, they must pay the remaining balance of $110 following application of the instant credit.

Apple’s Back to School promotion runs from today, June 2, through September 5, 2016. This year’s promotion mirrors that of last year, when Apple offered a Beats Solo2 On-Ear headphones – valued at $219.95 – for eligible purchases. Previously, Apple’s Back to School promotion brought gifts cards alongside eligible purchases.

    You should ask Apple for the free headphones. Others who bought a mac from the past 30 days have gotten the free headphones.
