Apple's 'Back to School' Promotion in Australia and New Zealand Offers Free Beats Headphones

Apple today launched its annual "Back to School" promotion in Australia and New Zealand, offering higher education students, faculty members, parents of students, and select other staff a free pair of Beats Solo2 on-ear headphones with the purchase of a qualifying Mac with education pricing between February 3 and March 21.

Eligible models include the iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Pro, including configure-to-order versions, while the Mac mini and refurbished Macs do not qualify for the offer. The eligible Mac must be purchased from the online Apple Store for Education or by calling 133-622 in Australia or 0800-692-7753 in New Zealand.

The qualifying student or faculty member will receive one pair of free Beats Solo2 on-ear headphones in Gloss Black, Gloss White, Gloss Red, or Gloss Blue, as an instant credit. Apple also offers a credit of AU$259.95 or NZ$339.95 for Beats Solo2 Wireless on-ear headphones, with the customer responsible for paying the remaining difference.

Apple's "Back to School" promotion in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and elsewhere last July and August also offered students a free pair of Beats Solo2 headphones with a qualifying Mac purchase. Last year, students in Australia and New Zealand were offered an Apple gift card worth between $25 and $100 with the purchase of a qualifying Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

No, no & no. Nobody wants Beats, what a lacklustre deal!


I tried on a few pairs of Beats in Target about a week ago. Literally some of the worst sounding headphones I've ever heard priced anywhere near that. Other manufacturers at least try. I was shocked, and to think that I was actually considering getting a pair (if they sounded good)...


Here we go again... :rolleyes:

I like my Beats Studio Wireless headphones just fine. A coworker had me try his Bose wireless noise canceling headphones. He was telling me how well the noise cancellation worked on the plane.

After further research I learned that Bose offers wireless OR noise cancellation, not both in one headset. I didn't tell my coworker.

Some of you are so ungrateful for something that is FREE. You know they don't have to give anything right?
