    For the past two years running, this promotion has begun on June 5th. A call to the 5th Avenue Apple Store at 3 AM yielded a sleepy employee suggesting that it'd be coming back.

    Any news on this?

    I believe it was for any new Mac purchased with a student discount.

    I doubt the apple employee has any special info that people on this site don't have. That said, i am pretty sure the back to school buy a mac and get a free ipod promotion will be back.

    i would say its definitely going to come back, the only question is if you will be able to apply the $150 rebate to the iPhone. hopefully!

    They didn't last year, unfortunately. If AT&T gives a subsidy though, it won't really be necessary.

    Wasn't it $200 last year though? I distinctly remember getting my 30gig "Classic" for only $50 after the rebate...

    is the promotion usually for an ipod nano?

    I am planning on buying an iMac within the next week or so, but not I am wondering whether I should hold off and wait for this promotion (I already have an iPod but I could always sell this one)

    more like "the price of a nano". you can buy any iPod and just get off the price what a nano would cost.

    Every Mac excepts for Mac Mini's and also (for the people who think "new" just means newly purchased) Refubished Macs.

    With this rebate, will you also get the 100 dollar rebate they are giving on printers now?

    Technically yes & no.

    It was $200 until they introduced the new gen iNano, which they then priced at $150. So those who didn't act early were SOL, and would have to pony up an additional $50 for the iPod.

    It will include the Touch but not the Iphone due to ATT rebate. Part of the rebate may include Itunes credits towards downloads.:apple:
