The promo offers students as well as chosen educational staff a $70 to $100 Apple Store gift card with purchase of a qualifying new iPad Pro or Mac, including the Mac Pro, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro and built-to-built version of the models. Models that are refurbished and the Mac mini as usual are not included in the offer. Apple is known to put usage ease its main goal when it comes to designing a product. It not only creates great design and durability but also makes it a point to make Apple products available to more people worldwide.
Apple has in the past used App Store gift cards and Beats headphones as part of the promo. In the United States, it is still a few months away from the back-to-school season, but in New Zealand and Australia, the new school year is looming, thus the iPhone maker’s yearly promotion for students is in full swing, offering a taste of what to expect in the summer in the United States. Apple’s Back to School promos are for sure more generous in comparison to their Black Friday discounts that are disappointing.
The promotion in Australia could be availed by both part-time and full-time students above eighteen years old at an accredited university or college or other Apple-approved institution. University staff and lecturers in accredited institutions or Apple-approved educational institutions are eligible as well. In New Zealand, the promotion is made available to students attending or accepted to a higher education institution, staff members, and faculty members of higher education centers. Furthermore, the Apple Back to Uni promotion is also available to any employee of a private or public K-12 institution as well as parents who are making purchase in behalf of a current or an accepted student.
Apple’s Back to Uni promo runs from February 7 to March 17 in both countries on the website of Apple and at Apple Stores in Australia. Moreover, customers who are eligible could also call 133-622 in Australia or 0800-692-7753 in New Zealand. The promo could be combined with the standard education pricing discounts of Apple. In a related news, Apple also launched a similar promo in Japan. The offer provides students an 8,500 Yen Apple Store gift card with a purchase of a new Mac and 5,500 Yen Apple Store gift card with a purchase of any new iPad Pro. Macs could be customized or built-to-order and still qualify for the promo. Standard education discounts on iPads, Macs and AppleCare could be applied aside from the free Apple Store gift card.
iTunes credits could be spent towards app and content purchases in the App Store, iTunes Store, Mac App Store and iBookstore. The credits aren’t transferable and could be redeemed only in a regional iTunes store issuing them. The program runs until March 20 and available through Apple retail stores (in Australia only), via phone orders or through Apple’s online store for education and limited to students in universities, students accepted to a university, parent who are making purchases for university students or faculty and staff from any grade level.
A recent survey has revealed that more than fifty percent of households in the West own an Apple device or product and are more likely to belong to the younger generation. In addition, the survey stated that richer users have more Apple devices. For university students, faculty and staff in New Zealand, Australia and now even in Japan could get a chance to own an Apple device via the on-going promotion.
