Apple has launched its “Back to School” promotion for 2015, and this year’s is… kinda “meh” to be honest.

Instead of the gift cards Apple offered in 2014 and 2013, this year students who buy a new Mac will be eligible to receive a pair of Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones or Beats Solo2 Wireless On-Ear Headphones for their trouble.

In both cases Apple will give students an instant credit of $199.95 — although people opting for the wireless headphones (available in space gray, silver, or gold) will have to cough up an extra $100 to make up the difference in price.

Right now the promotion is offered at eligible Apple Stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, although more markets may be added later on. To take advantage of the offer, you’ll need to pick up a new iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air or and Mac Pro. Mac mini and refurbished Macs are not part of the deal, which runs through September 18.
