Will Apple offer the same iPod Touch back-to-school promotion in 2010?

Asked by RafBM (100 points ) July 7th, 2009

Apple is currently offering this promotion: students who buy a Mac during the Summer get a free iPod Touch. I know the same promotion was offered last year, but I don’t know about the previous years. Is this a long-standing promotion and can I be sure that the same deal will be offered next Summer?

i would say yes. as far as i remember, it’s been going on since 2006, so i don’t see why they wouldn’t go on to do it next year.

@lunabean I guest the promotion wasn’t with the iPod Touch in 2006, since it has first been available in September 2007?

@RafBM Yeah I was about to say that. They have just recently started their iPod Touch/Mac promotion. Pretty good deal!

Free iPod with Mac has been going on for years. Very good chance that it’ll be again next year as well.

They have done this for years. Before the iPod Touch they gave out the Nano, and before that it the classic.

Yeah, they’re always giving out some kind of iPod when you buy a new laptop, but only if you’re a student. It might not be a Touch next summer is the only thing.

They officially give a rebate, which is conveniently the base price of an iPod Touch, you can choose another iPod though (iPod only, not iPhone or cash).

I don’t think they’ll this deal anytime soon.

I’ve noticed that they do this every year, too, but I think their reason is this:

Apple wants to introduce a new generation (or completely new) iPod. They have a lot leftover (in warehouses, etc). The way they get rid of them is to offer them for free when College students purchase Macs.

Then, a while after the promotion has ended, they introduce the new generation/iPod.

So you might not be getting an iPod touch next year. It could be the current generation Classic, or Nano, or whatever.

Capiche?
