Just as school was out, the back-to-school shopping period began, with Apple once again offering its annual mini-savings on it’s hardware.
Apple doesn’t make savings deals very often unlike Amazon does with it’s Kindle Fire tablet rather frequently, so if you have been waiting for an Apple discount, this might be your only chance.
Provided you are in college or are in some other way buying for a college student that is, since these are the only ones that qualify for a saving. And even then, what you actually get is a $100 App Store gift card if you buy a Mac, a $50 App Store card if you buy an iPad, and a $30 discount on both products.
The offer from Apple is valid to September 9.
