Apple are currently offering a little extra incentive to buy an iPad or iPad mini for college – a $50 App Store gift card. You can also get the same deal when buying an iPhone for college and a $100 gift card when buying a Mac.
The Apple promo material for these offers highlights the huge range of useful iPad and iOS apps for college students., as well as the fact that the gift cards can be used to download music, games, and iBooks too.
Here’s what Apple says about who qualifies for these offers:
To qualify for the App Store Gift Card and get education pricing on a Mac, you must be a college student, a student accepted to a college, a parent buying for a college student, or a faculty or staff member from any grade level.
