Most schools have been out of session for only days, and it looks like Apple is ready to get its annual summer campaign underway. However, instead of the usual free iPod with your Mac purchase, it looks like Apple may be taking a different approach this year.
The above photo had been sent to MacRumors via a tipster, which indicates that the offer will instead this year be for a $100 gift card that can be used in the Mac App Store, iTunes Store, App Store or iBookstore, and it should kick off tomorrow. Within the fine print, it shows June 16 as the launch date, and the promotion will go up until September 20, 2011.
While some may scoff at the notion of no longer getting a free iPod, it is definitely a sign of the times of Apple's continued push of the Mac App Store, which will be the distribution point of the upcoming Mac OS X Lion and Final Cut Pro X.
