Apple is set to launch its 2012 ‘Back to School’ promotion soon, according to the rumor mill this morning. With the purchase of a new iPad, educational customers will be eligible to receive a free $50 iTunes gift card. A new Mac purchase will come with a $100 gift card.
Apple’s WWDC keynote is starting in less than two hours, and the company is expected to unveil iOS 6 and new Mac hardware.
The $100 gift card with a new Mac isn’t new, but $50 with a new iPad would be a new addition to the promotion. In the past, the Mac mini has not qualified for Back to School. Whatever new hardware Apple may announce today will likely qualify.
Last year, Back to School started on June 16th. Apple could very well wait to launch the promotion after WWDC this week.
