Apple back to school deal
Apple on Tuesday is set to confirm reports from last week on its 2008 Back-to-School promotion, which will provide students with a $299 voucher to use towards an 8GB iPod touch when purchasing an applicable Mac. According to AppleInsider, the rebate will also apply to the higher capacity models, such as the $399 16GB Touch or the $499 32GB model. Students could also opt out of the Touch, and instead use the credit for a $199 iPod Nano.
An insider familiar with the promotion said their organization has "already ordered lots of iPod touches to be ready for [this] week."
The rebate offering is the highest in Apple's history, with the company formerly offering $199 towards a 4GB Nano last year, and $179 in the two years prior towards a 2GB Nano or iPod mini.
