Apple Back to School Promo Starts Tomorrow with iTunes Gift Cards: $100 for Macs, $50 for iPad

MacRumors has learned that Apple will be launching its annual Back to School promotion tomorrow in the United States and likely a number of other countries. As in previous years, Apple will be offering iTunes Store gift cards to educational customers purchasing qualifying products.

itunes store cards
The major new addition to the program this year is the iPad, with purchasers receiving a $50 iTunes Store gift card with the purchase of a new iPad. The Mac aspect of the program appears to be the same as in previous years, with qualified purchases earning a $100 gift card. We have not yet confirmed exactly which Mac systems will qualify for the program, but in past years the Mac mini has not been eligible for the promotion.

As with previous years, the cards should be valid across Apple's digital stores, including the iTunes Store, iOS App Store, Mac App Store, and iBookstore.

Didn't the back to school promo at one time give you $100 off a Mac, not an iTunes gift card?

Students can still get a $100 discount. The "extra" used to be an iPod Touch.

If I were buying a couple years ago as a student, I would have had a new machine, a student discount, an iPod Touch, and a free printer. Now I get a new machine, a student discount, and a piece of plastic that Apple will see a $30 return on. Awell.
