Apple today launched its annual Back to School promotion in Europe — links below. Apple is offering the choice of a free pair of Beats Solo3, BeatsX, or Powerbeats3 headphones to qualifying students, parents of students, and educators who purchase an eligible Mac with education pricing for a limited time.


Eligible models include any new MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, or Mac Pro. Mac mini does not qualify.

The promotion also offers free BeatsX wireless headphones with the purchase of any 10.5-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro, or students can pay extra for Beats Powerbeats3 or Solo3 wireless headphones. Apple's new 9.7-inch iPad and iPad mini 4 models do not qualify for the promotion.

Participating countries in Europe include Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates.

The promotion is available on Apple's online education store, and at Apple retail stores, until October 2, 2017. Apple has outlined the full eligibility requirements in its terms and conditions (UK version shown), available at the bottom of the education store on its website in each country.

Students are required to verify their enrollment or acceptance in a higher education institution in order to participate in the promotion in most countries. Not a student or looking for better deals? Visit our Apple Deals roundup for other discounts on Apple products and accessories.

Sell the "free" beats and buy something from Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, Audeze, Fostex, HiFiMan, Audio Technica, etc..


Fixed that for you.

No AirPods?


AirPods are never in stock anyways so it wouldn’t make any sense to give them out for free.

I got the Beats Solo 3 for "free" as part of the U.S. promotion when I bought the MBP. They are a actually not as bad as I thought they might be. Great battery life, never dropped connection. Sound is ok (not as bass heavy as I heard they would be).
Certainly would have preferred the AirPods though...

I bought my iPad Pro one week ago. Do you think they might give me the headphones now or is there no chance?

You don't need to return it. If you are within the 14 day period, they apply to you the back to school promo, as it is retroactive.

Even more, when I bought the last MacBook pro last week, I asked if the promo had been activated a few days later my 14 day period expired, if there would be a chance to get the gift, and they said, literally "Apple is always reasonable at this cases, we are flexible in this regards".

So don't worry, you'll have your earphones :)

yes, you have at least 2 weeks of "factory warranty" with apple products. During those two weeks you can send/bring them back no questions asked and you'll get your money back. So take a backup, wipe your iPad Pro, bring it back, and immediately buy a new one with the back to school promo...

You know what kinda annoys me? That if I buy a $1.4k Mac I get $300 off, but if I buy a 1.2k iPad pro (as I'm going to) I only get #150 off! (prices approximately, from Norwegian prices)

I just called Apple Store Support:

If you bought an eligible product in the last 14 days you get the promo benefits with no questions asked. No need to return.

Just call the store support and they will arrange it for you
