Apple has launched its annual Back to School promotion in Japan this week, according to Japanese blog Mac Otakara.


While the promotion typically offers free Beats headphones in the United States and Europe, the Japanese edition offers students free Apple Store gift cards valued up to ¥18,000 or roughly $165 with the purchase of select Mac and iPad Pro models.

Apple is also offering qualifying students 20 percent off AppleCare+ coverage for select Mac and iPad Pro models.

The promotion runs February 6 through April 3.
