As detailed in the official terms and conditions (PDF), the promotion is valid on the purchase of a new (non-refurbished) iMac, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Pro, or third-generation iPad. As in past years, the Mac mini is excluded from the promotion.

The offer is available in the following countries, with gift card amounts varying based on local currency: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States.

So with this, I can get the new Macbook Pro with retina display for $1999.99 with my $200 student discount and a $100 iTunes gift card? I think that's a good deal!

Best Buy will probably match $1999 and give you a $100 Best Buy gift card. Perhaps that may be more useful to you (this how I bought my 2011 MBA).

But not too shabby! Retina + 8GB of RAM + 256GB SSD + USB 3.0 + 2xTB + 7 hour battery... nice!
