Apple is back with a new back to school promotion that hooks students up with free or discounted pair of Beats headphones.

The 2018 promo is pretty similar to last year’s deal. Only instead of only being available in North America initially, this year Apple launched it simultaneously in the US, Mexico, Canada, EU and Asian countries.

For the next few months, Apple is offering college students and faculty and staff at higher-education and K-12 institutions free Beats when you purchase an eligible Mac or iPad Pro. You may also qualify for the deal if you’re purchasing on the unit for a student or faculty member.

If you purchase a 10.5-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro you can choose between a set of BeatsX or Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones. You can also pay $100 extra to upgrade to the Solo3 Wireless headphones. The same goes with any Mac purchase.

Eligible Macs include any new MacBook Pro (like the ones that just came out today), MacBook, MacBook Air, iMac, iMac Pro and Mac Pro.

Apple’s back to school promo lasts until September 25, 2018. You can take advantage of it at any Apple retail store, campus stores and the online Apple Store.
