I got the Beats Solo 3 for "free" as part of the U.S. promotion when I bought the MBP. They are a actually not as bad as I thought they might be. Great battery life, never dropped connection. Sound is ok (not as bass heavy as I heard they would be).
Certainly would have preferred the AirPods though...

Bought my iPad Pro a few weeks ago, shame I missed out but would've stuck with my AirPods anyway. Would be nice to sell/have a spare pair, but oh well.

I'll probably get the 10.5" iPad Pro with this offer. Waiting for the German site to get updated to check the discounted pricing.

Bought my iPad Pro 4 weeks ago, any chance to get free beats too or bud luck?
If I'm not wrong, in Germany you can send it back within 30 days? Or is it just Amazon with Prime?

AirPods are never in stock anyways so it wouldn’t make any sense to give them out for free.
They aren't going to give out something that people actually buy like the AirPods. This is just an excuse to get rid of Beats deadstock.

I bought my iPad Pro one week ago. Do you think they might give me the headphones now or is there no chance?

yes, you have at least 2 weeks of "factory warranty" with apple products. During those two weeks you can send/bring them back no questions asked and you'll get your money back. So take a backup, wipe your iPad Pro, bring it back, and immediately buy a new one with the back to school promo...

You don't need to return it. If you are within the 14 day period, they apply to you the back to school promo, as it is retroactive.

Even more, when I bought the last MacBook pro last week, I asked if the promo had been activated a few days later my 14 day period expired, if there would be a chance to get the gift, and they said, literally "Apple is always reasonable at this cases, we are flexible in this regards".

So don't worry, you'll have your earphones :)
