Apple Back to School 2020 offer: Free AirPods with iPad and Mac purchases

Apple has launched its Back to School promotion for 2020. For this year, Apple has decided to include its very popular wireless Bluetooth earphones, AirPods, for free with the purchase of an iPad or Mac. Last year for Back to School, Apple included free Beats headphones with every iPad or Mac purchase. The promotion is only available in the United States.

Since most students around the world are attending online school due to the pandemic, it is a very smart move on Apple’s part to launch this deal as soon as possible rather than waiting till July, the month in which the company usually launches the Back to School promotion.

Other than the free AirPods, Apple is offering students to buy its products at education pricing. Meaning, students can get up to $200 off on MacBooks and around $50 off on iPads. In addition to these discounts, Apple is allowing education customers to upgrade to the AirPods Pro by paying an extra $90. Apple Back to School

The Back to School promotion also comes with other discounts for Apple’s services. Students can get a 20 percent discount on AppleCare+. In addition to this, users can subscribe to Apple Music and Apple TV+ for a student rate of $4.99.

In previous years, Apple opted for giving credit worth $199 to users who wanted to purchase more expensive Beats headphones rather than getting the free Beats options. Apple is also offering a similar deal this year, with AirPods. Customers are offered $159 credit that they can put towards purchasing AirPods with Wireless Charging Case or AirPods Pro. Making the upgrades $40 and $90 for both options, respectively.

There are a few stipulations for this offer that are mentioned on the Apple website:

  • Qualified Purchasers can receive Promotion Savings when they purchase an eligible Mac or eligible iPad with AirPods at a Qualifying Location. Only one Promotion Product per eligible Mac or eligible iPad per Qualified Purchaser. Offer subject to availability. While supplies last. Subject to terms and conditions herein.

  • Apple Education Pricing. Available to current and newly accepted college students and their parents, as well as faculty, staff, and homeschool teachers of all grade levels. Quantity limits apply. Visit Sales & Refund Policy for full terms and conditions.

This is a great time to upgrade one of your devices for the new school year. Furthermore, If you are an Apple Card holder, you can also purchase Apple devices on 6 and 12 month installments with 0% interest.
