Apple Offers a Free Pair of Beats with Every Mac
It’s that time of the year again, the time where you can walk into pretty much any store and they’ll offer you 70-ish pencils for like $4, but it’s also that time of year where tech companies are trying to persuade you to buy tech for school. Apple is certainly one of those tech companies and they certainly throw a pretty strong incentive our way this time around: Free Beats with every Mac. Beats Solo2, to be exact, with complimentary Apple Music for a month. Now, Beats Solo2 may not be the best pair of headphones at $199, but considering that buying a Mac isn’t that cheap anyway, getting something free from Apple is quite seldom.
Now, the promotion is available from now until September 18, but there’s some fine print to read before buying a fully decked-out Mac just because you can get some Beats for free. First of all, you must be involved in some way with the educational field, namely a student, but you can also be a teacher, administrator, employee, or parent of a student for this offer to apply. However, not all Macs are eligible for the promotion either. Assuming that you’re eligible, you must buy a new iMac, Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, or Mac Pro for the promotion to apply. Excluded from the lineup is are Mac mini computers or refurbished macs. So, you could go all-out and get a decked-out Mac Pro, provided that you’re somewhere in the educational field.
It’s pretty obvious why Apple wants to push this offer out there. It’s Apple’s attempt at pushing Mac sales, given that PCs have been on a decline recently. Apple has been known to redefine the Status Quo many times over and an expensive incentive is one way of taking over the world with Macs. If you really want those free Beats and you’re feeling like you’re going to buy a Mac soon, keep this deal in the back of your mind as you’re perusing the Back to School deals and maybe you’ll find yourself at an Apple Store, or you can check out their website right here
