Free iPod touch Edu Promo
Apple today began one of its more ambitious back-to-school promos by offering a free iPod touch to faculty and students buying a Mac through either the online Apple Store or retail stores that offer educational deals. The campaign offers a $299 rebate equivalent to the price of an 8GB iPod touch if both the iPod and the Mac are on the same order; buyers can also upgrade to a 16GB or 32GB and apply the full discount. Those who prefer the iPod nano can opt for an 8GB model at a reduced $199 rebate.
The promo begins effective immediately and allows submissions for the rebate claims until October 15th; all stock and custom-ordered Macs are eligible except for the institution-only 17-inch iMac and all Mac minis. Regular educational discounts remain in effect.
