Best Buy Will Match Apple’s $100 Educational Offer With Best Buy Gift Certificate

Best Buy Will Match Apple’s $100 Educational Offer With Best Buy Gift Certificate

We’ve been hearing reports that Best Buy, not wanting to be left out of the race of college students purchasing laptops for their education, will be matching Apple’s offer of a free $100 iTunes gift card with purchase of any Mac.

We previously reported that Apple, in a rare break from tradition, will not be giving away free iPod Touches to students who purchase Macs this year, but instead will offer a $100 iTunes gift card – perhaps their way of promoting the App Store market trend. Best Buy, however, will apparently be matching Apple’s new offer.

This should come as no surprise, as Best Buy is typically pretty agressive with promotions like this, but the interesting bit is that students will apparently have to specifically ask for the promotional offer to receive the gift card, unlike Apple shoppers, who will likely be informed while shopping. Further, the promotion will reportedly entail a Best Buy store gift card rather than iTunes credit.

  1. For people that are criticizing Apple for the change in their Back to School sale are not thinking this through. I bought a Macbook Pro last Friday because I needed a computer to go to college with. I got $100 off for the student discount, the iTunes gift card and a free $100 printer with a rebate that I filled out with the salesperson in my mall’s Apple Store. As a student, a free wireless printer and money for software is much more useful than an MP3 player.

    Best Buy will not be able to match that.

      You can buy $100’s worth of App Store gift cards at Best Buy, so it’d be like getting the same deal if that’s what you choose to spend it on.
