Canadian students are in for a treat, as Apple is presenting a $200 gift card on the purchase of any new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or iMac, and a $150 gift card on purchasing a new iPad Pro, iPad Air, or Mac mini. These gift cards can be redeemed against Apple products and accessories, App Store applications, Apple Music subscriptions, iCloud+ storage services, and more.

In Mexico, Apple is offering third-generation AirPods with any new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or iMac, second-generation AirPods with any new Mac mini, and a second-generation Apple Pencil with any new iPad Pro or iPad Air.
