Apple Launches Annual 'Back to School' Promotion in Australia and New Zealand

Apple's annual "Back to School" promotion has returned to Australia and New Zealand, as spotted by 9to5Mac. The sale offers an Apple gift card worth between $25 to $100 to university students, students accepted to a university, parents buying for a university student and faculty that purchase a qualifying Mac, iPad or iPhone.

Apple Back to School AU NZ
The list of qualifying products includes the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, Mac Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. Eligible customers can combine the Back to School promotion with Apple Education Pricing for additional savings. The sale runs January 30 through March 19.

Apple holds a similar Back to School promotion in the United States during the summer months, offering Apple Store gift cards of equivalent amounts for new Mac, iPad and iPhone purchases. That sale typically runs from July through September and is also offered in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

They do these during the summer and it's summer in the Southern Hemisphere.


Indeed!

Also, MacRumors should have written their article better and not inferred that summer months are a US-only thing ("Apple holds a similar Back to School promotion in the United States during the summer months") or that 'summer' months are the same months everywhere.

In my experience, it seems common for Americans to have a generally US-centric worldview & insular attitudes. Think global! There's a whole planet out there.

I wish I had a MacBook when I was in school. I carried around a chunky Dell 17" laptop that must have been 2" thick. Battery life lasted about 40 minutes on a good day!


Old Man. :D
