Working Adults: Last Week to Get Free Beats With Mac or iPad Pro Purchase
I'm a working adult currently living paycheque to paycheque, but I understand the plight of the college student. They have to work, and go to school, and study. Very few students are your stereotypical trust fund baby. My family paid my first semester's tuition, and that's it. I had to pay for everything else on my own.

It’s not even remotely possible to pay today’s tuition by working part time, so students who don’t have rich parents just end up taking on massive debt, even if they work. Free headphones won’t help much, but hey, every little bit counts I guess.

I thought about getting this deal but decided to get B&H to price match my .edu discount on my custom built iMac and then save on tax. I’d rather save the money and buy headphones I actually want.
