This deal has ended.
Ending Tuesday 9/8, college students, as well as teachers and staff members, can get a free iPod Touch (up to $229 via rebate) when you buy a Mac from the Apple Store for Education. The easy-to-follow directions are in a column on the right side of the landing page under the heading "How to get your Mac and free iPod touch." Plus, the Macs are discounted $50-$200. For example, a $999 MacBook is $949 for students and a $1999 MacBook Pro is $1899. This is a rare chance to save over four hundred dollars at The Apple Store. My college-student sister took advantage of this and it couldn't have been easier - the rebate submission was online and did not require any paperwork or mailing.
