Apple’s ‘Back to School’ Sale Goes Live in Australia and New Zealand

According to 9to5Mac, Apple’s annual ‘Back to School’ sale has gone live in Australia and New Zealand with a gift card promo for all qualifying students buying a Mac, iPad, or iPhone. In addition to the usual education pricing on Macs and iPads, this year Apple has included Apple Store gift cards instead of App Store gift cards like last year.


All current university students or students accepted to a university qualify for the discounts and gift card according to Apple, while parents of university students and teachers and staff also qualify. Below are the details of the Apple Store gift card promo:

“Included with a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, or Mac Pro is a A$100/NZ$125 gift card while an iPhone 6, 5s, or 5c or iPad Air or iPad Air 2 qualifies for a A$50/NZ$65 gift card. For the smaller iPad mini 2 or iPad mini 3, Apple will include a A$25/NZ$30 gift card”.

Apple’s ‘Back to School’ promotion in Australia and New Zealand is similar to last year’s promotion in Canada, where the promo normally kicks off in July.
