Apple’s annual Back to School program returns in Australia and New Zealand with a promotion to receive a pair of Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones with qualifiying Mac purchases. Customers may also alternatively choose to receive savings on a new iPad (although there is currently an error on both sites not indicating how much can be saved). Last year’s promotion in Australia and New Zealand included an Apple Store gift card up to A$100/NZ$125, so it’s nice to see them promoting the acquired Beats brand and giving away instant credit for the headphones.
When purchasing a new iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or Mac Pro, customers can elect to receive credit towards the purchase of a pair of Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones or a pair of the Beats Solo2 Wireless On-Ear Headphones. It’s important to note that because the Wireless On-Ear model is more expensive, customers will have to pay the remaining difference of A$140/NZ$180.
Education pricing is available to university students, students accepted into university, parents buying for university students, teachers, lecturers and staff at all levels.
Apple notes that the Mac mini and refurbished Apple computers are not eligible for this promotion and that the qualifying purchases must be made between February 3, 2016 and March 21, 2016.
This year’s promotion in Australia and New Zealand follows a similar promotion the Back to School program Apple had in the United States last August with the Beats Solo2 headphones.
