Every hot day brings the school year closer. The sun rises, the sun sets, and back-to-school looms on the horizon. However, with the encroaching school year comes the coveted back-to-school sale, and while Apple traditionally isn’t very giving when it comes to sales, they are loosening up the purse strings just a bit for a pretty interesting return-to-college promotion. Apple is giving away free Beats headphones with every Mac purchase for students and faculty members.
The deal is actually pretty good. You buy your computer, and you have a choice of either a pair of Beats Solo2 On-Ear Headphones for free or a pair of Beats Solo2 Wireless Headphones for $100. For wireless headphones, that’s a pretty good deal and worth the extra $100 over the price of your $2000 computer system. I have wired headphones now, and every time I snag the wire on something or ruin another pair of headphones by shorting them out, I wish I would just bring my wireless headphones from home to work and get it over with. The deal is currently active at Apple stores and Apple Authorized Campus stores as we speak, and it will be coming to the online Apple Store on August 6.
