Apple Launches Back to School Deal with Free iPod Touch

Apple introduced its latest back to school promotion on Tuesday with the offer of a free iPod touch or iPod nano to students and teachers that buy a new iMac or Apple laptop. The free iPod comes in the form of a rebate worth up to US$299, which is the price of an 8GB iPod touch, and is available with Macs purchased at Apple online or retail stores.

Apple is also offering up to $100 back on qualifying printers when purchased along with a new Mac. The standard educational discounts still apply when purchasing one of the qualifying Macs.

The free iPod offer applies only if the iPod is purchased at the same time as the Mac, and the offer runs from June 3 through September 15. Rebate claims can be submitted through October 15, 2008.
