Apple Offers Free Beats in Back to School Promotion

Apple's back-to-school deals include free $300 headphones when you buy a new Mac or iPad Apple Launches Back to School Promotion: Free Beats Headphones With Purchase of Eligible Mac or iPad Pro

Specifically, this year, you can get a pair of Powerbeats 3, Beats Solo3s, or BeatsXs based on what you purchase.

Meanwhile, those in the market for a new iPad Pro can get a pair of BeatsX earphones, normally priced at $149.95, for free. You can check out Apple's back-to-school promotion web page, which has links to all the eligible Macs and iPads for the offer.

Apple has today officially launched their 2017 Back to School promotion in the United States and Canada, offering eligible customers a free pair of Beats with qualifying iPad Pro and Mac purchases. The Solo3 run for around $300, and the Powerbeats3 go for $200, so you're still getting a very good deal on these. The deals are only open to students, parents purchasing on behalf of their child who is attending or has been accepted to college, faculty members of K-12 and higher education institutions, and homeschool teachers.

On that note, the company is also discounting Apple Music down to $5 a month for eligible students. Apple's been selling the MacBook Pro solidly ever since it was released a year ago, so it probably assumes quite rightly that it doesn't need a big sale to push college students to upgrade. The cheapest MacBook Pro (often the number-one pick for students) is $50 off, but you can normally find it for cheaper at resellers like B&H.
