Apple back-to-school promo on iPhone, iPad and other devices starts today: here are the deals you can get

This year, Apple kicks off its back-to-school promo early: starting today, you can get an iMac, Macbook, iPhone or an iPad and receive a free pair of pricey Beats headphones.

If you're a student, or the parent of a student, you can now get a pair of $200-worth Beats Powerbeats 2 wireless headphones with the purchase of a new iPhone 6, 6s, or an iPad Pro.

If you buy a more expensive Apple product like a Mac laptop, you get a $300 freebie, the Beats Solo 2 wireless headphones. You can also get the Beast Solo 2 with the purchase of an iPhone or iPad, but you'd only get $200 of the $300 price covered, and you'd need to pay an additional $100 to get the headphones.

Keep in mind that refurbished Apple products are not eligible for this promotion and the promo will run all the way from June 2, 2016, through September 5, 2016.

Finally, do also note that Apple still runs its student promo for Apple Music that allows you to pay half the price for your monthly subscription: for students Apple Music costs just $5, while regular subscribers pay $10 a month.

No discounts on actual devices. Just headphones? Not much of a deal.

Apple has always offered a student discount for all their products. Knocked $200 off my MBPro a few years ago. This is something extra.

200$ for a headphone? do students need to buy an 800$ IP6s to get a 200$ free headphones? they can simply get a cheaper phone which offers extra features for less and get a 20$ headphone.

Why only students? Why not everyone? Other OEM apply their deals to all buyers.
