Apple continues to make its annual Back to School deals available in more countries. Initially rolled out in the U.S., Canada most European countries, Apple has started to offer various deals for student customers in other nations in Asia, the Middle East, and Mexico.
Apple Back to School Deal Offers Gift Cards
For students and educators who are planning to buy either new Macs or iPads, Apple usually gives out an Apple gift card along with the purchase. Apple rolled this out in the United States and Canada sometime in June. Meanwhile, for other countries, Apple usually gives out AirPods during this annual gig.
In the U.K., Apple will be giving out gift cards with up to £120 value, and it could go as high as €150. Of course, the catch here is that customers must use the gift card to purchase another Apple product aside from the new Mac or iPad that they have purchased.
To get these gift cards, customers must purchase any of the qualifying Apple devices. These include the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac. Of course, buying Apple’s latest devices such as the M2 MacBook Pro and M2 MacBook also comes with corresponding gift cards as part of the Back to School deal. Suffice to say, buying a new Mac comes with a higher value gift card than when buying an iPad.
