It’s not often that you can save money at the Apple Store, so I was a little surprised when I came across this offer:
Shop the Apple Store for the iPad, iPhone, MacBook Family, iMac, iPod and Apple TV, plus the latest curated accessories for your favorite Apple device. Enjoy free shipping on every order over $50 and earn miles.
Buy a Mac for university between June 11 and September 21 and receive a $100 Back to School Card to use on apps, books, music, and movies. Or buy the new iPad and get a $50 Back to School Card. And if you choose a Mac, save even more with Apple Education Pricing.
To qualify for the Back to School Card offer and to get special pricing on a Mac at the Apple Online Store for Education, you must be a university student, a student accepted to a university, a parent buying for a university student, or a faculty or staff member from any grade level.
The discounts are in the $100 to $200 range and purchases earn 1 AAdvantage mile per dollar.
A 13-inch: 2.9 GHz MacBook Pro retails for $1,499. With this offer you’ll get it for $1,399 plus free shipping. So you save $100, get a $100 App Store gift card, earn 1,399 AAdvantage Miles (or 2,798 miles if you use your Citi AAdvantage card).
