Apple Offer: Free $50/100 App Store Gift Cards For College Students

Apple has launched a back to school campaign for college students. A $50 App Store gift card is being offered with an iPad or iPhone purchase and $100 with a Mac purchase. Apple says you can use an App Store gift card to "download apps, music, games, books, and more from the App Store, Mac App Store, iTunes Store, and iBookstore."

Apple's offer notes that there are, "Hundreds of thousands of apps for your academic life. And your social life. The perfect apps for college are just a tap away on the App Store. Create great-looking papers, spreadsheets, and presentations using Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. Edit and share photos with iPhoto, compose music with GarageBand, and make movies with iMovie. And find apps to help you stay organized, study for finals, and have a little fun."

There are some restrictions: "To qualify for the App Store Gift Card and get education pricing on a Mac, you must be a college student, a student accepted to a college, a parent buying for a college student, or a faculty or staff member from any grade level."
