Apple’s back-to-school offer ends in the US and Canada in just six days. With this year’s promotion, Apple is offering a $150 gift card in conjunction with the purchase of an eligible Mac or a $100 gift card with the purchase of an iPad Air or iPad Pro.
As a reminder for those still looking to take advantage of the promotion as it wraps up, we’ve put together a quick summary of the products eligible for the promotion below.
MacBook Air M2
The new MacBook Air with the M2 Apple silicone chip in a thin and light design starts at $1,099 with an Apple Tutorial discount. With an additional $150 gift card, that means the M2 MacBook Air costs $949, and the M1 version can be had for a lower price. In addition, Apple is offering a 20% discount on three-year AppleCare+ service for Macs at $183.
MacBook Pro and iMac 24″
For education customers who need more powerful Macs, Apple offers 13-inch, 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. With a $150 gift card after purchase, the 13-inch MacBook Pro will cost customers $1,049, the 14-inch $1,699, and the 16-inch $2149. The 13-inch model comes with the new M2 Apple silicon chip, while the 14-inch and 16-inch models come with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chip options. The 24-inch M1 iMac is also available starting at $1,099 once the $150 gift card is factored in.
iPad Air and iPad Pro
The iPad Air and iPad Pro come with the M1 Apple silicon chip, providing more performance than older models. Both devices come with a $50 discount for Education customers as well as a $100 promotional gift card. The iPad Pro comes in 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes with more advanced displays and the addition of a LiDAR scanner compared to the 10.9-inch iPad Air. Both iPad lines support the second generation Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard.
Apple is expected to announce the updated 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with the Apple M2 silicon chip as soon as next month, and there is also the possibility of an update to the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Even with new models on the horizon, the back to school offer provides customers with a great opportunity to get current generation models with the added benefit of gift cards.
