Does anyone have any experience with how Apple handles people who bought in the last week or so? My parents bought my sister a Mac for school about 9 days ago (still within return period). She could probably use (or sell) the headphones.

I guess technically we could do a return and buy but she's already spent time getting the laptop setup. I guess that's her call.

Drop by the store, they will likely just do an adjustment on the receipt and give you the beats.

Just confirmed via chat with a specialist:

"as you long as you purchased a new MacBook Pro in the past 2 weeks you should qualify"

Did Apple start charging for the 'better' headphones this year? A friend of mine received a free Beats3 Solo Wireless a year ago with the purchase of a Mac laptop.
Apple's charging $150.00 + TAX now.

Edit: Never mind, see below.

Lucky sister. Best I got was a notebook and binder. Maybe even a pencil case if my parents were feeling like splurging.

Edit - plz no downvotes guys. Damn, mans can’t even take a joke in here.

give lots of head for sick knee fadez, give lots of lap dances for ca$h wallet fades. Always pop that leg when kissing for dope honey combs, knee lots of mans in the crotch for killer whiskers, low ride like an og for them stacks. And traintracks? Only achievable by a legend in the denim game

How did you contact Apple?

I just called Apple. I've had my iPad Pro for about 2 weeks and it's still eligible for a return. They said if I want the education discount I need to return my iPad and reorder again.

I called in and submitted both my iMac order and my MacBook order for this promotion, although both were received before the promotion began.

They said my iMac is eligible. I received that order early July, just over a week ago.
They said my MacBook is ineligible. I received that order mid-June, over three weeks ago.

So based on the timing, that makes sense.

Looks like they pulled the back to school promo for iPhone purchases. Instead they give you the more expensive Beats on-ear headphones for free with the Mac.

I've been waiting patiently for this deal, I had just checked last night to see if it was up yet. I'm in for an iPad Pro 10.5" with some beats wireless buds :) oh and an apple pencil.

If you order online, there is no verification. Did this last year for my iMac, went through like the Humber College site and did it no problem. Mac and Beats showed up a few days later
