Apple recently started its traditional “back to school” campaign in which the company not only offers a discount on its products to students, but also offers a gift card of up to $150 on the purchase of select products. The company has now also made a special offer for new Apple Music plan subscribers for students who can get free Beats Flex headphones.
The offer, available only in the US and UK, allows students to order a free pair of Beats Flex headphones after first subscribing to an Apple Music student plan. However, there are some catches.
As detailed by Apple, the offer cannot be combined with other Apple Music offerings and is not available to users who have previously subscribed to any Apple Music category. Also, students can only order the Beats Flex headphones for free after paying for the first month’s subscription, which means that users are not eligible during the one-month trial period.
Unsurprisingly, Apple says that those who canceled the trial subscription before paying for the first month will also not be eligible for the offer. After 30 days of signing up, eligible students will receive an email from Apple with instructions to order their free Beats Flex headphones. Users may or may not be able to choose the color of the product, subject to availability.
This offer is “limited in time” and there are no details on when it will end.
Apple Music Student Plan
While a regular Apple Music subscription costs $9.99 per month in the US, the company offers a discount to eligible students through the UNiDAYS program. Last month, the Apple Music Student Plan went from $4.99 to $5.99 per month. The Apple Music Student Plan provides full access to the platform’s song catalog on any device.
In addition to the discount, Apple Music Student Plan subscribers also get a free subscription to Apple TV+ — but Apple says this is also a limited-time offer.
More details on how to get a student discount on an Apple Music subscription can be found on the Apple website.
Beats Flex . headphones
For those unfamiliar, the Beats Flex are Apple’s entry-level wireless earbuds under the Beats brand. Unlike AirPods and other more recent Beats headphones, the Beats Flex headphones aren’t truly wireless, but they do share some of the same technologies as other Apple headphones like the W1 chip for quick pairing with iPhone and iPad and Find My support.
The Beats Flex headphones also feature Class 1 Bluetooth to ensure a more stable connection as well as better compatibility with Android devices. The earbuds have a built-in microphone and volume controls, and a battery life of up to 12 hours. Users can recharge it via a regular USB-C cable.
The Beats Flex Headphones cost $69.99 in the US. However, if you don’t qualify for the offer or you’re looking for other Beats headphones, you can find some other good deals on Amazon.
