Each year, Apple offers a special to college students before the school year starts to encourage them to purchase Apple products. In previous years, if you purchased an Apple computer as a college student, you got a free iPod Nano.
It seems that Apple has a surplus of iPod Touch models, as they’ve increased the incentive for buying Apple products.
This year, if you are a college student, faculty, or staff & you purchase an Apple product before Sept. 8th, you will get a free iPod Touch.
Head over to Apple’s website on getting your free iPod touch with a purchase of a Mac for more details.
