Apple’s annual Back-to-School promotion has begun in Australia and New Zealand. The promotion offers educational discounts and Apple Store gift cards with qualifying student purchases of Macs or iPads.
Included with a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, or Mac Pro is a A$100/NZ$125 gift card while an iPhone 6, 5s, or 5c or iPad Air or iPad Air 2 qualifies for a A$50/NZ$65 gift card. For the smaller iPad mini 2 or iPad mini 3, Apple will include a A$25/NZ$30 gift card.
Last year the Cupertino firm ran a similar promotion, but offered App Store gift cards in the place of Apple Store gift cards.
Apple says current university students, or those who have been accepted to a university qualify for the deals. Parents of university students, as well as teachers and school staff also qualify.
The company also offers a similar promotion each year to educational eligible customers in the United States, usually kicking off sometime in July. Apple Store gift cards were also offered in their most recent U.S. Back-to-School promotion.
