Apple promotions for student buying a macbook?

<p>I remember that in the past, you could get a free (after rebates) iPod or printer with a computer purchase. I tried buying one online as a student, but they offered me just the printer along with a $100 discount. Does any one know if they will be offering iPods again sometimes in the future?</p>

<p>Apple usually offers a back-to-school special in the summertime, for students. In past years, along with the small educational discount (available at any time, ranging from $50 to $150), Apple offered rebates on a printer and an iPod (typically the most inexpensive Touch model). This past Summer, Apple offered the printer rebate plus a $100 iTunes gift card. This was accompanied by some gnashing of teeth on this site (<a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-computers/1151427-apple-store-summer-promotions-3.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-computers/1151427-apple-store-summer-promotions-3.html&lt;/a&gt;), as many folks anticipated another free iPod Touch deal.</p>

<p>I have no idea what Apple is planning for this Summer, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it being a free iPod. I'd bet on another $100 iTunes offer, along with the regular academic discounts.</p>

<p>Apple never says what they will do in the future. ;)</p>

<p>Any Macbook Pro specials going on right now for students?</p>

<p>I think we'd call it just the usual:</p>
