Purchasing a new Mac scores students a US$100 Back to School Gift Card they can use on apps, books, music and movies, and buying a new iPad earns a $50 gift card. Mac and iPad purchases myst be made through Apple’s online education store, Apple Authorized Campus Stores, or Apple’s own retail stores.

The back to school promotion is open to current college students, students accepted to a college, parents buying for their college student, or school faculty and staff from any grade level.

Eligible students, faculty and school staff can also take advantage of educational pricing on Macs as part of the promotion. The offer runs from June 11 through September 21.
