Apple Offers College Students $200 Discount on Macs Plus a $100 App Store Gift Card
As it were, Apple's back-to-school campaign is in full session. The Cupertino company hopes to pack your bag with a laptop, desktop, or mobile device, and if you qualify for an education discount, you can save up to $200 plus receive a $100 App Store gift card.
To qualify, you must be a college student, a student accepted to a college, a parent buying for a college student, or a faculty or staff member from any grade level.
Assuming you qualify, you'll receive the above mentioned gift card with the purchase of a Mac, and you'll save with education pricing on top of it. Or you can buy an iPad or iPhone and a $50 card.
MacBook Air pricing starts at $949, which represents a $50 discount over the normal selling price. The $50 savings extends across the board to all four baseline MacBook Air configurations, including the two 11.6-inch models and two 13.3-inch models.
The biggest savings come when you shop a MacBook Pro. You can save up to $200 versus regular pricing, including on the least expensive configuration, which starts at $999 versus $1,199 (13.3-inch, 2.5GHz, 4GB DDR3-1600, 500GB HDD).
