Purchase any iPad or iPhone - receive a £30 Apple Store card

Parents who are purchasing on behalf of their child who is studying at or is accepted into a higher education establishment.

It's worth giving Apple a call as they've been known in the past to either reimburse the value of the voucher (if purchased online), or give you a voucher if you purchased in store.
I spoke to Apple this morning who reimbursed £60 on my neices macbook air purchase that was bought on Monday

Guys don't be fooled by Apple, they do this every single Summer in order to get rid of their old stock to bring in their new upgraded MacBooks etc.

The reason why this year they've been so 'kind' to offering £60 AppleStore Voucher instead of the typical iTunes voucher is because they know they have heaps of stock to get rid off!

If you can wait till September/October - Id much rather do that!

Don't think I agree with that, buying an apple product on the student deal (~15% off a macbook) and getting £60 voucher for apple store (better than £60 itunes in my opinion), is a good deal. It depends on the product you are buying. For instance the rMBP will only see a minor spec bump (not noticeable to most users - especially student usage) so no reason not to buy now!

Add to it the 12 months 0% finance deal:

and this is looking like a very good deal in my opinion.

Oh I remember the day when they gave out a free iPod touch as part of their back to school offer.

iPod > £60 voucher.

True, but the mac's were a lot more expensive then! Swings, roundabouts, etc

I bought my retina MacBook Pro under the back to school offer in 2012 when the latest line of new design MacBooks had just come in. So I don't particularly agree with the bit about getting rid of old stock.
I got over £200 off the retail price, plus a £70 voucher, and the 3 year warranty. That was on the latest design at the time.

I completely disagree - you'd get £200 of the RRP for the new model regardless and 3 year warranty! The only difference is that you get a £70 voucher.

£70 App store voucher vs a NEW model - mate you've bought the Ivy Bridge Model,the 2013 model is Haswell - theres an improvement on over 80% of graphics with Intel 5000! Google it if you don't believe me, furthermore Haswell = 4-5+ hours of battery life.

Keep your £70 App Store voucher, haha.

Think you're missing the point. In 2012, I bought the Ivy Bridge rMBP (mid 2012). In 2012, it was the new model. At the time, it had just been released, and I got it under the back to school offer.

My point was, you can't say they were getting rid of old stock, when I had just got the latest line

Hi there, how much was it exactly? Is the 3 year warranty standard with the education discount? Mulling over buying with the education discount vs buying in the US.

Checked the apple education website and it says the MCBPro with 256 flash hdd is @ £1173 but on the regular apple website it's £1249.

I don't see the £200 discount.

Thanks for the clarification.

It's £1,074 on the education website. You might be looking on the standard education site, if you go through your uni (or uni link) then you'll get the full discount.
The 3 years repairs is included in the price, you don't need to purchase the 'uplift'

Thank you Bobtastic. Logged in through the uni network and have seen the revised price. Tempting, esp with the 0% finance plan...

lol, they told me just now that can't have two promotions together full stop, and that they removed financing option whilst the giftcard promotion is on.
