We’ve combed through the Internet to pick out some of our favorites. Obviously it’s tough to make a list like the one you’re about to read comprehensive given the amount of retailers throwing their hat into the ring, so if you have any more on your radar that we failed to mention here, make sure you let us know what they are in the comments section. Let’s get started.

Apple/Beats Back to School Deal

Business Insider reports that the Apple/Beats back to school promotion went live today in Apple Stores. (It will be available online starting Aug. 6). Lisa Eadicicco explains.

“Apple’s new back-to-school promotion kicks off today, and this year the company is offering a free pair of Beats Solo2 On-Ear headphones if you purchase certain Mac models.

“The promotion begins in Apple Stores on Thursday and is coming to Apple’s online stores August 6. The program runs through Sept. 18.

“Apple is essentially giving you $199.95 to put toward the headphones, which covers the entire cost of the wired version.

“If you want a pair of wireless Beats Solo2 headphones, you’ll need to pay $100 since they cost $299.95.

“To get the discount, you have to be a student, a faculty member at a school, or a parent of a student. The deal applies if you buy an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or Mac Pro. 

“If you decide that you want to return your new Mac, you’ll have to give back the headphones as well to get the full refund. The same rule applies if you want to exchange the Mac for a different computer that’s not included in the promotion.

“If you exchange it for a Mac device within the program, though, you get to keep the headphones.”
