Apple today kicked off its latest back to school promotion, offering students big savings on wireless Beats headphones when they purchase a new Mac, iPhone, or iPad.

Eligible customers are also entitled to education pricing, which reduces the cost of their new device.

Apple is giving away a set of Beats Solo2 headphones worth $300 with eligible Macs, which include the MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac Pro. The only model that’s exempt from this offer is the Mac mini, which starts at just $479.

You can also get free Beats Powerbeats2 wireless headphones worth $200 when you buy an eligible iPad or iPhone.

Apple’s offer runs through September 5, and you can take advantage of it when purchasing from retail stores throughout the U.S. or from the Apple Online Store. The promotion is also available from authorized campus stores.

For last year’s back to school promotion, Apple offered free Beats Solo2 headphones — the wired ones worth $200 — for free with certain Macs. The company has certainly stepped up its game this year, then.
